Materials needed to craft TM 016 Psybeam in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

  • 3 Psyduck Down

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. Luckily, the Psybeam TM only needs 800 LP to craft, leaving you to worry only about the Psyduck Down. To get the Psyduck Down item, you will need to find the Pokémon and defeat it a few times. You should get around 2 to 3 downs per Psyduck defeated if you are lucky.

The Psybeam ability is a really good starting skill to use for your low-level Psychic Pokémon. It has a lot of power (65), 100% accuracy (which is not normal for Psychic abilities), and a 10% chance to cause the Confusion condition on the enemy. This is a really good ability at the start of the game that players can easily craft and teach their favorite Psychic Pokémon.
