Pokémon Sun and Moon, like past games, will change the way trainers battle in the seventh generation.

Sun and Moon introduces a lot more new abilities, new moves and marks the debut of Z-Moves. However, with new moves come new technical machines, or TMs, for trainers to teach their Pokémon attacks they may not learn on their own.

Also, HMs are no longer in Sun and Moon and instead some of the more popular HMs are now TMs.

Some of the TMs are gifted by different NPCs and some you’ll have to explore different routes and towns to find but luckily, we’ve compiled a list of TMs and where to find them.

Below is a list of all the TMs in Sun and Moon with their locations. A lot of the TMs are found in certain PokeCenter markets and have their own section for easy searching.
