Technical Machines FAQ
What is a TM in Pokémon GO?
TM stands for Technical Machine. Technical Machines are special items that can be used to teach your Pokemon a new move.
Can you use multiple TMs on one Pokemon?
Yes, you can! In fact, you can use unlimited number of TMs on a same Pokémon. This goes for both Fast and Charged TMs. There is no limitation in terms of your Pokémon’s level, IVs, gender or shiny-ness.
Can you get the same move when using a TM?
No, you can not. As explained by Niantic’s customer support, each TM use will always result in a new move. The current move you are rerolling is not included in the potential outcomes.
What does it mean to “reroll a move”?
In many RPGs and games that have RPG-like elements (stats, moves, etc) to reroll (or re-roll) means to randomly reset a character’s stat value. In Pokémon GO, to reroll a move means using a TM to get a new random move.
