Pokemon BDSP TM Locations Guide

TMs or Technical Machines in Pokemon games are your key to learning some truly powerful moves and teaching to your Pokemon. This guide will go over all the TM locations in Pokemon BDSP and how you can find and use each of these TMs in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Pokemon BDSP TM Locations

If you don’t know already, TM stands for “Technical Machines”. These machines are special items that exist in the Pokemon games that give trainers the ability to teach their Pokemon new moves that they cannot learn otherwise. You can also use Move Tutors to teach your Pokemon new moves!

When you catch a Pokemon, it comes with its own unique moveset. Sometimes, you may want certain moves deleted or replaced by something else.

This is where the TMs come in. If you’re unhappy with the moveset of your Pokemon, you can use a TM on them to re-roll their moveset and teach them a new Fast Attack and/or Charged Attack and improve their moveset, making them a more powerful Pokemon.

Over the years, the mechanics of TMs in the Pokemon games have changed quite a bit, but Pokemon BDSP takes them back to their Gen IV roots.

This means that in Pokemon BDSP, each TM can only be used once; as opposed to being used infinitely (like in Pokemon Sword and Shield). However, the good news is that all of the TMs in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl can be obtained more than once.

There are a total of 100 Pokemon BDSP TM Locations. The TMs are labeled as TM01, TM02, and so on, but they also have unique names such as “Focus Punch” and “Dragon Claw”.
