Pokémon Scarlet and Violet utilize Technical Machines (TMs) like any Pokémon game, allowing Pokémon to learn new moves they can’t normally learn. TMs are consumable items that teach moves, but you can only use these items once before they expire. In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, there are over 150 TMs to find and collect, but there are ways to get duplicates of these TMs so you can teach these moves to more Pokémon.

If you need to use more than one TM for your different Pokémon, then you’ll have to make use of the new crafting mechanic. As Pokémon Scarlet and Violet move to the open-world format, Game Freak has introduced crafting which allows you to make copies of previously discovered TMs. As you collect new TMs from exploring the open world, defeating gym battles, and defeating Team Star, your library of craftable TMs will grow. After getting the materials you need, go to the Technical Machine Machine to begin crafting.

Ice moves are super-effective against Grass, Ground, Flying, and Dragon-type Pokémon. Ice moves are not very effective against Fire, Water, Ice, and Steel-type Pokémon.
