Is there any logic behind making HM moves permanent so the user can't delete it?

Why give it that restriction at all? It makes no sense to me other than being annoying.

In R/B, you could, theoretically, trap yourself if you deleted a move at the wrong time.

Makes sense to me now, making them permanent was the easiest way to get rid of that problem. Looks like i was wrong, logic was definitely involved.

That logic is no longer applicable/necessary though, because we have infinite storage space, so you have no reason not to keep HM's in your inventory at all times, which allows for them to be retaught any time if you actually get yourself stuck.

So, just forcing you to keep the item in your inventory is a better solution these days.

I don't see why they just couldn't make it so you weren't allowed to delete surf while surfing.

I guess that's why we only needed like four HMs in B/W/2. I am used to always having two full HM slaves with me, but in gen 5, I was able to evenly train 6 Pokemon. I only had to switch out for an HM user a few times.

Interesting, may need to look into that.
