Elite TM Moves Discovered

Pokemon GO

Hello Trainers!  It’s here!  The day has finally come, Niantic has pushed the moves that are available to Pokémon through use of the Elite TM.

Additionally, this article contains my thoughts and opinions in regards to the code that was shared online – all of these should be treated as conjecture, not as hard statements. If you’re OK with that, feel free to read further. Potential spoilers ahead.

With that said, let’s get into it!

Oh boy.  Is this quite a list.  For reference, the entire list of moves and the Pokémon that can use them is below.  I’m going to focus on a few that are interesting.  I’ll be skipping over the Community Day moves, as those are fairly straightforward, and I’ll only be listing the moves that are meta relevant, so if you don’t see it skip it.

Also, there are notably some moves missing from this list.  For the most part, if the legacy move isn’t on the list then it’s due to the fact that the Pokémon never should have had access to the move in the first place as they are not able to learn it in the Main Series Games.

So, with all that out of the way… let’s jump in!

Mewtwo

Pokemon GO MewtwoMewtwoPsychic
Psystrike Psychic
Shadowball Ghost

Two of Mewtwo’s best moves are Psystrike and Shadowball, both of which are legacy moves.  You will be able to Elite TM both of them onto Mewtwo.  So if you’ve got the candy to unlock a second charge move, you will be able to TM the one your missing.

Dewgong

Ice Shard Ice (Fast)
Icy Wind Ice

If you are at all into PvP, then double legacy Dewgong is probably high on your list of priorities.  Ice Shard/Icy Wind Dewgong is #9 overall in Great League according to pvpoke.  It will require 2 TM’s, but if you’re into PvP this might be where you want to spend your Elite TM’s.

Zapdos

Pokemon GO ZapdosZapdosElectricFlying
Thunder Shock Electric (Fast)

Zapdos with Thunder Shock as it’s fast move is a beast, it falls just below Raikou in terms of DPS.

Blaziken

Pokemon GO BlazikenBlazikenFireFighting
Stone Edge Rock

Stone Edge Blaizken, once one of the rarest of the legacy Pokémon.  Blaziken with Stone Edge has excellent potential in the PvP meta to counter flyers.

Community Day Moves

All the Community Day moves are back, and Elite TM-able.  Which is no surprise.  If you are wondering what Community Day moves you should be prioritizing, check out our guide for the 2019 December Community Day here.  The only Community Day move worth looking at from 2020 so far, would be Rhyperior with Rock Wrecker.

Conclusions

There’s a lot on this list, from very old Pokémon that had moves for a short period to Pokémon that have two legacy moves and can be very relevant with both.  Plus there’s a couple of years worth of Community Day moves that can be TMed onto Pokémon that you’ve caught since they had their day.

I think the only thing left now, is to see just how sparingly Niantic will part with these.

What are you most excited about?  What are you going to use your first Elite TM on?  Is there a spicy move that we missed?  Let us know!

Stay safe out there trainers!

Oh yeah, As promised…
