Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why can't I trade a Pokemon from Soul Silver to White if it has learned an HM move?

Not specifically Soul Silver and White, but those are the ones I'm trading on.

Is that Pokemon the only one with that hm in your soul silver game.

If it is then it won't let you transfer it, kind of like how the Pokemon comes back if you try to release the only Pokemon with that hm.

The reason this happens is because if you transfer the only Pokemon that has surf for example, then you could be stuck on an island if you don't have a fishing rod or any other Pokemon that can learn surf.


Hope this helped.

also if you are trading instead of transferring then it won't work with any pokemon
