Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have brought back Technical Machines (TMs), which are consumable items that let you teach your Pokémon new moves. These moves are typically ones that a given Pokémon cannot learn through traditional methods such as leveling or breeding. In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you can find and collect over 150 TMs. However, in this game, you can only use each TM once. This gives your Pokémon more strength, type coverage, and utility.
If you’re in need of more than one of a certain kind of TM to teach multiple Pokémon, you’ll need to participate in the game’s new crafting system. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have introduced crafting with the transition to an open world and are how you’ll make copies of your TMs. You can craft new TMs at the Technical Machine Machine found at every Pokémon Center. You’ll need League Points and materials dropped by Pokémon after you defeat or catch them.
