Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire & Emerald TMs

Generation 3 had 50 Technical Machines like previous generations, but some old TMs were replaced; these are noted at the bottom of the page. Several of the removed TMs were later available from the Battle Frontier move tutors in Pokémon Emerald, in exchange for Battle Points.

All the TMs are listed below with the move stats and their locations. Click a table heading to sort by that column.
