PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I'm at the lake of rage and it says you need a gym badge to use this move, (Surf)I beat Whitney (don't know if that's the gym you need) I cant surf on my poke to get there, why?

EDIT:I traded the Pokemon I'm using and it already knew Surf when I got it (before I beat Whitney) so maybe thats it?

>HMs are TMs that serve a purpose out of battle, as well as being moves for in-battle use; however, with the exception of Generation V, in order to use an HM's purpose out of battle, a Gym Badge is required. In all generations, HM03 is Surf.

As said above, you need to get a Gym Badge to use Surf outside of battle in HG/SS, the badge is the Fog Badge, you get if from Morty in the Ecruteak City gym after you beat him.

Hope this helps!


Where is he?
He's in his Gym. In Ecruteak City.
But I don't know how to get there!
Stop using so many caps please .-.

If you want to know how to get there ask nicely or post a separate question. Or just find out the normal way - by playing the game.
I do play the game, sorry, i found it, i feel stupid for not finding the gym when i went through the city XD
