That allows you to use the HM outside of battle but can't be used inside of battle. --- Official and Original Mountain-Eating Goddamn Aggron of the Black/White Boards LoL IGN (And IGN for almost everything): Rathilal
Or they could make HMs even more useless in the main game than they did in this game, which would be great. --- "As I was walking up the stairs, I met a man who wasn't there, he wasn't there again today, i wish I wish he'd go away."
C; The HM system is very dated and it's something that I hope X and Y address.
My suggestion? Make it so that as long you posses the HM and a pokemon is capable of learning the HM move, they can use it in the overworld, even if it doesn't actually have the move in their current moveset. --- Tell Confess-a-Bear, now!
HM Slots for outside of battle and can be used in battle only if you delete a move. You cannot delete an HM move in the HM slot when you have made the Pokemon learned it. the HM move in the battle slot however can be deleted as if it were a TM.
