Before going after this TM, you first need to defeat the Canalave City gym leader to unlock the ability to use the hidden move Surf outside of battle. Don’t worry about missing the Surf ability since you get it during the story when you talk to Cynthia’s Grandmother in Celestic Town. She gives you the hidden ability after discovering the information in the ruins.

Once you have defeated the gym leader, you can now sail across the rivers throughout Sinnoh. Make your way back to Valley Windworks. You should remember this area as the first place you battle against Team Galactic. While going to Valley Windworks, stop when you see the bridge. Use Surf on the water and travel east along it towards Valley Windworks. Follow the river behind Valley Windworks to where there is a small landing. On the landing is where you will find the TM.

If you wish to purchase Thunderbolt, you can make your way to the Veilstone City Department Store. Go to the third floor, and you can buy the TM for 3,000 PokéDollars.
