TMs and HMs

TMs (short for Technical Machines) are one time use items that will teach select Pokemon a new move. Make sure you think hard before using a TM. They can only be used once, and a Pokemon can only learn four moves!

HMs (short for Hidden Machines) are similar to TMs, but they can be used multiple times. The main purpose of HMs is to teach a move that can be used outside of battle to get through Kanto. Some people try to use one or two Pokemon for all of the HMs instead of teaching them to a useful Pokemon. Once an HM is taught to a Pokemon, it cannot be forgotten!
