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 Earthquake TM needs 12000 LP to craft, which can be a lot for some 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 Phanpy Nail, Diglett Dirt, and Barboach Slime materials, you will need to find their respective Pokémon and defeat them a few times. You should get around 1 to 2 materials per Phanpy, Diglett, or Barboach defeated. You might even be lucky enough to get 3 in one battle, but that is rare.
