There are hundreds of moves to learn and discover for your Pokémon, giving them extra strength and utilities going into battle. One of the most reliable ways to teach your Pokémon new moves is through the classic TM system, which allows you to teach certain moves to certain Pokémon on demand. As long as you have a TM at hand and a Pokémon who can learn that move, you can utilize a TM and teach your Pokémon some new tricks.

As you progress throughout the game, you will gain access to more TMs through the Technical Machine Machine, battling Gym leaders, and clearing Team Starbases. While you cannot reuse TMs in this game, you can craft more copies of a certain TM if you have the proper materials at the Technical Machine Machine. Take Down is a powerful Normal-type physical attack that poses great power for a little bit of risk for the Pokémon using it.
