HM moves should have a separate move slot.

Like an overworld move slot. No longer should we have to waste a slot on our teams for HM slaves or a move slot if you choose to spread the HMs among your team.

This sig is significant

Yup, like each Pokemon in your squad has a blank slot to learn an HM move, but only one. And the HM should reference it's type in someway so it makes a bit of sense.

tl;dr all HM users conveniently have a fifth moveslot to use in battle.

All special attackers who didn't have space to use Surf will suddenly use it haha

Because HM use was so rampant in the last two games, right?

Well there could at least be an option to put it in an "HM Slot", and if you want it as an Attacking move you can put it in the moveset.

Did you miss the original poster specifying "Overworld" slot? As in, one that can be used in world map, not in battle?

This is Game "two steps forward, on step back" Freak. BW2 had noticeably more mandatory HM use than BW, so it's not out of the question that we could go back to rampant HM use.

And even if they weren't used rampantly, what would be wrong with making it more convenient for when you DO use HMs for hidden items?

Oh sorry, i must not be speaking clearly enough for everyone to interpret. Yes, i had mean't that it would have a slot for the HM, but it would only be used in the Over-World and not in battle, i did not at any time mean for it to be used in battle as a fifth move. Geez people...

Why do HMs need to be tied to Pokemon moves at all? Just give us Key Items for tree-cutting, boulder pushing, water crossing, fast travel and whatever else they think they need them for, turn Surf into a TM and ditch the rest.
