Pokemon with HM moves

#1DARKlegend64Posted 12/8/2012 2:28:35 AM
Pokemon with HM moves cannot be traded (Fact). But I think I've found a way. Since some pokemon learn some HM moves as eggmoves, you can try trade someone the egg with HM moves. Can someone prove this?

There is nothing preventing you from trading Pokemon with HM moves, so long as you're doing a normal Pokecenter trade (ie. not Poketransfer or on-the-field IR transfer).

If there is any catch at all (besides it being a normal Pokecenter trade), it's that I think you need to own a second Pokemon with the same HM move. You need to do that to release Pokemon into the wild, at least.

Also, I don't believe any HMs are egg moves per se, but HM transference works the same way as TM transference, so they'll pass down anyway.
