Pokémon Scarlet and Violet utilize the Technical Machine (TM) system. These are consumable items that let you teach your Pokémon some new moves they aren’t normally able to learn. In Pokémon, there are over 150 TMs to find and collect. However, each TM can only be used once. Unlike the previous game, if you want to teach one TM to many other Pokémon, you will have to utilize a new crafting feature.

All TMs can be crafted in a new machine found at every Pokémon Center. This machine is the Technical Machine Machine, located to the left of Nurse Joy. As you collect new TMs from the open world, defeat gyms, and beat Team Star, your collection of TMs will grow and so will the TMs you can craft. After collecting enough materials, go to the Technical Machine Machine and start crafting.
