Pokemon Sword & Shield TR list: every Technical Record move teaching item in the game

7 monthes ago   |   By VG 247

All-new to Pokemon Sword & Shield are Technical Records - TRs for short - though these new items are actually a little familiar, as our complete TR List shows.
Typically in Pokemon games, you can teach your Pokemon moves that they don't learn ‘naturally' through the level up process through the use of TMs, also known as technical machines.

Once you got a TM, you could use it as many times and on as many Pokemon as you liked...
