To create the strongest Pokemon in Pokemon go, you’ll probably need to use the different types of TMs (Technical Machines) to give your Pokemon the best moves. Our Pokemon go explains where to find and use Elite TM, Charged TM and Quick TM.

Legacy Moves come from events like Community Days or Special Raids and you can’t learn them outside of those events.

How to get Pokemon GoTM

You can get regular quick charge TMs from raids or as rewards from special research tasks like the quest set that rewards you with Jirachi. Events with timed research tasks can also give MT as a reward.

Elite TMs can also be rewarded through the Timed Research Event, but the main way to get them is to buy them in packs. Community Day bundles in the store, which must be purchased with coins, often contain Elite TMs. This makes Elite TM a rarity, especially among free players.

How to use TMs

To use a TM, tap the Pokémon you want to use it on, open the menu, and choose Items. Then tap the TM you want to use. Normal TMs will ask if you’re sure you want to replace the Pokémon’s current move with a random move. Elite TMs give you a list of moves to choose from.

The best moves to use Elite TM

Since Elite TMs are so rare, don’t waste them teaching Pokemon moves that regular TMs can learn from. Save them especially for Raid Legacy Moves.

For example, every Mewtwo that was eventually caught in raids had the Shadow Ball attack, but this attack cannot be obtained with normal MTs. Shadow Ball is one of the top two move options in Mewtwo, which means it’s definitely worth using an Elite Charged TM for it. Making the best move with one of the strongest Pokemon in the game is a great way to use an Elite TM.

Community Day Movements like Blast Burn or Hydro Cannon could also be good uses for Elite TM . However, based on previous years, there’s usually a community weekend in December where you can learn older Community Day moves while evolving relevant Pokemon during the event. Depending on the distance and urgency of that move, it may be worth reserving the Elite TM for something else.

Ultimately, follow your instincts. If you really want that Frenzy Plant Venusaur and want it now, use your Elite Charged TM on it. You get another Elite TM after an event and if you never use it it’s a much bigger waste.
