Can we PLEASE just use HM's as separate abilities and not attacks?

The Pokemon games have evolved and fixed many problems, but the annoying, useless hm's are still around.

It would be great if we could use them as abilities instead of wasting attack slots on the :/

I like HM's. But it wouldn't hurt if some of the useless ones (like Cut and Dive) followed the route of Rock Smash and Flash and became TM's.

This. We get the distribution of the good moves, but the modernization that is not having to go around with crappy moves on your Pokemon.

I would use Surf and maybe Fly regardless.....

Surf and Waterfall are useful moves, but the others are almost always totally useless. They can always turn these moves into TMs, but keeping them as HMs is just a bad idea.

they can just do what they did in black/white and made HM's optional (except for Cut once, and that was to teach the player about HM's.)

they can still keep surf and waterful as regular battle moves, they just won't have that extra ability.

however I doubt they'll do this as it'll cause too much confusion.
