TMs and HMs are items that resemble CDs. They contain moves that can be taught to certain Pokémon.

TM

TM stands for Technical Machine. Pokemon Trainers can give these CDs to their Pokémon to help them to learn new moves to use against opponent Pokémon. In Pokémon Generations I to IV, TM's could only be used once, and then they disappear. Since Generation V, players to use them more than once, just like an HM.

HM

A Hidden Machine, HM for short, is in almost every way identical to a TM, except for three differences:

  • The moves cannot be overridden by simply learning another move
  • The moves can be used outside of battle after obtaining the relevant gym badge
  • The HM can be used multiple times without breaking (this is only a difference up to Generation IV; in Generation V and VI TMs can not be broken).

Additionally, Pokémon on a third generation game cartridge cannot be transferred to a fourth generation game card if it knows an HM move, you must go to the Move Deleter in your game in order to transfer these Pokémon to Pokémon Diamond/Pokémon Pearl. Also when you transfer Pokémon to Black/White, through the Poketransfer, the Pokémon may not know any HMs.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Black and White, the television frequently broadcasts a program called Moves for Living, which describes move attributes, and is hosted by a scientist named Dr. Technic Al. Machine.
  • In Generation VII, HMs were removed because Poké Ride and Secret Technique serve as functional replacements.
  • TMs and HMs was designed to resemble Floppy Discs in Generation I, but later designs resemble CDs or DVD players. They can be used only once in Generations I to IV. In Generation V onwards, TMs can be used indefinitely. In Generation VIII, TRs whose design resemble vinyls are introduced and serve as one-time TMs.
  • 170 Moves have appeared in TMs and HMs.
  • Upon defeat, Gym Leaders usually give out TMs matching their type. The only exceptions so far are Brock (giving out TM34 in Generation I) and Falkner (giving out TM31 in Generation II).
  • Some TMs retain the same move over Genrerations:
  • In Generation I, 24 TMs contain normal-type moves, and none of the TMs contain bug- or ghost-type moves. In Generation II flying become the excluded type, in Generation III bug again, and starting from Generation IV TMs contain moves of all types.
  • The only ???-type move was TM03 in Generation II.
  • The contents of TM03, 09, 19, 34, 43, 48 and 49 has changed 5 times over the generations.
  • The TM whose contents change the most frequently is TM01, changing 6 times over the genarations.
