As opposed to the other Pokémon games, in Scarlet and Violet, you can teach your Pokémon many TMs by just crafting them using a few basic resources.

To craft a TM in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet you need to:

  1. Head over to a Pokémon Center.
  2. Approach and interact with the Technical Machine.
  3. Choose the “I want a TM made” option.
  4. Craft the desired TM from the long list of options.

The TM crafting menu will show you everything you need to know, from which Pokémon can learn the TM you are looking at, to the required resources to craft said TM. If you have the necessary resources to make one of the TMs, you will see “Craftable” written on a green label over the image of the TM’s animation. It seems that all TMs will require an amount of League Points (LP) to craft and various items that you can get in the wild.

You will also see the description of the ability, the move’s type, power, accuracy, and PP. The screen also lets you know if you already have the TM in your backpack, with a little sign for your inventory in the top right with a number next to it. This exciting addition will give you even more control over your Pokémon’s moveset.
