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 Fest 2022 Finale Day, with the Willow's Return special research's second 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.
