How to use a Charged TM in Pokémon Go

Changing moves.

Charged TM in Pokémon Go is an item related to a creature's moves.

Introduced with the first Raids back in 2017, these allow you to change your Pokémon's moves - or more specifically 'reroll' your Pokémon's moves, seeing as it's decided at random when you use one.

It has seen a renewed interest with the arrival of the Go Tour Johto event, with the Battle Challenge research's first step asking players to use one.

How to use a Charged TM in Pokémon Go

There are two ways to use a Charged TM in Pokémon Go, and both have the same outcome - changing the Charged move of the Pokémon.

The first method is to open your Items, scroll down to Charged TM, and select. Now choose the Pokémon you wish to change the Charged move for, and you'll be asked to confirm the action.

The second method is in when looking at a Pokémon in your possession, press the menu button in the bottom right corner, then select Items. Now choose Charged TM and you'll be prompted to confirm the action.

As mentioned, a Charged TM will 'reroll' your Charged move to one at random within that Pokémon's available pool of moves.

The Season of Go has arrived! The Pokémon TCG Crossover event is here, which includes the release of Wimpod and Golisopod. While Go Fest 2022 may be behind us, there are still three special research quests you might be working on - Pokémon Go Fest 2022, Rhi's Arrival and A Radiant World. Meanwhile, the Great League and Great League and Great League Remix are currently running in the Go Battle League Season 11. This season has also seen the lowering of the level requirement for Candy XL and introduced the first Ultra Beast, Nihilego.

How to get a Charged TM in Pokémon Go

Charged TMs can be sourced by various means, but are mostly rewards from winning raids and engaging in the Go Battle League.

If you are playing as part of the Battle Challenge research quest during Go Tour Johto, know you'll receive a Charged TM as a reward for completing the Evolve 3 Pokémon step.
