What are TMs?

A Technical Machine, more commonly referred to as TM, is an item that can be used to teach a Pokémon a new move. Different Pokémon can learn different TMs, and each Pokémon has a list of all learnable Technical Moves.

There are 100 TMs in Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. Some are found in the wild, some are gifted to you, whilst others can be bought or exchanged at the Battle Park, or located in the Grand Underground.

Head over to our list of all TMs found in BDSP, which offers locations for every TM. If you’re specifically looking for a list of all TMs found just in the Grand Underground, head over to our Grand Underground TMs list.
