Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Eevee TM Locations

Wondering where to find TMs in Pokemon Let's GO? Look no further than this handy TM location list!

TMs, short for Technical Machines, make a return in the Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee games. They’re special items that teach your ‘mon new moves earlier than normal or moves they wouldn’t have learned otherwise, for example, teaching  Surf to Psyduck. Like in the past few generations, TMs are reusable, so you can teach Thunderbolt to all 100 of your Pikachu if you so desire.

Some TMs are easier to find than others, and many are presents from specific trainers, which is why we put together this handy guide to show and tell where they all are. Note that we’ll be updating the guide daily with new photos for those tricky to find TMs.

It’s also worth noting that TMs such as Surf and Fly don’t work like their HM counterparts of old. These are now just regular moves, with Secret Techniques like Sky Dash and Sea Skim replacing HMs.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
