While Pokemon pages list moves that they can learn via TM, it doesn't appear that the respective move pages have complete information on what Pokemon can learn them. The move pages do list which pages they were TMs/TRs in despite this.

Some examples:

  • Teleport lacks a "Learnt by TM" section completely, despite being a TM move in Gen 1 and LGPE.
  • Taunt has a "Learnt by TR" section for SwSh, but lacks a "Learnt by TM" section completely, despite being a TM move in every game since Gen 3.
  • Dragon Claw and Bug Buzz are similar to Taunt.
  • Take Down is similar to Teleport (but worse in this case as it is a TM in SV, which is more relevant currently).
That's because the move sections are for Sword and Shield. They don't feature prior games and they aren't updated to SV yet

As each of these pages mention:

The numbers given are for Pokémon Sword & Shield and may vary in other games; check the respective Pokédex pages for details.

The pages are (most likely) correct for Sword/Shield and wholly exclude data for other games. The owner of the site has said that the pages will be improved in the future.

I've updated them to show Scarlet/Violet where appropriate. And yes, I'm working on making the move pages more usable.
Gotcha, thank you for the clarification!
