In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will need LP to craft all of the TMs at the TM Machine. Depending on the power of the ability, it might require more or less LP. The Fake Tears TM needs 400 LP to craft, which should be a low amount for most players. A good way to get some LP if you are in need is to go to the TM Machine and exchange Pokémon materials for LP. You can use other materials that aren’t needed for this specific TM to get enough LP.

To get the Bonsly Tears and Teddiursa Claw items, you will need to find their respective Pokémon and defeat them a few times. You should get around 1 to 2 tears or claws per Bonsly or Teddiursa defeated. You might even be lucky enough to get 3 in one battle, but that is rare.

The Fake Tears move is a Dark-type move that will make your Pokémon cry and harshly lower the Special Defense stat of your enemy. This can be a really good skill for either resistant Pokémon or secondary Pokémon that you use to debuff your rivals.
