Elite Charged TMs in Pokemon Go allow you to choose which Charged Move you want your top fighters to learn, making them incredibly desirable. It also means you’ll want to make sure you choose the best moves for the right Pokemon.
Whether you’ve unlocked an Elite Charged TM by working your way up the tiers in the latest season of the Pokemon Go Battle League, or you’ve earned one by completing a Research quest, you might be wondering when it’s best to use them.
Considering these Elite Charged TMs are so rare, it can be difficult to know which Pokemon to use them on. This guide will explore the best moves you can learn with Elite Charged TMs and the Pokemon you should be giving them to.
- Mewtwo – Psystrike
- Moltres – Sky Attack
- Groudon – Fire Punch
- Ho-Oh – Sacred Fire
- Registeel – Zap Cannon
- Venusaur – Frenzy Plant
- Swampert – Hydro Cannon
- Charizard – Blast Burn
- Metagross – Meteor Mash
- Walrein – Icicle Spear
- Gengar – Shadow Punch
- Rhyperior – Rock Wrecker
- Blaziken – Stone Edge
- Lickitung – Body Slam
Mewtwo is the clear standout here, so if you don’t have one that knows Psystrike, that should be your priority. When paired with Psychic as a Fast Move, it can be a threat across PvE and the Go Battle League.
It’s also worth considering the rarity of these moves. Some are Community Day-exclusives, which means they could very well appear again, while others like Groudon’s Fire Punch only appeared in special events.
As a side note, many of these Elite Charged Moves function best when paired with another Charged Move, so it’s always worth looking into purchasing a secondary attack if you have enough Candy and Stardust.
While regular Charged TMs will switch up your chosen Pokemon’s Charged Move at random, Elite Charged TMs give you the option to select the specific attack you want, which can save you a lot of time and resources.
The second major benefit of Elite Charged TMs is that you can teach attacks that are no longer available, like Legacy Moves and Community Day-exclusive Moves, which are often the best attacks a ‘mon can learn.
A lot of high-tier Pokemon require a specific Charged Move to reach their full potential in the Go Battle League, and these are often locked away in special events or Community Days, so Elite Charged TMs are essential.
The main way to get an Elite Charged TM is to reach Rank 19 in the Go Battle League, where they’re offered as a guaranteed reward. You can sometimes find them in Community Day event boxes, too.
You’ve probably realized this by now, but Elite Charged TMs aren’t exactly common in Pokemon Go. In fact, they’re one of the rarest items, so make sure you use them wisely when you do get them.
