Where to Find TMs (Pokémon Scarlet & Violet)

How To Get Bulk Up (TM064) in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

With the launch of the ninth generation of Pokemon games, trainers have to learn yet another way of using Technical Machines (TM for short). TMs are back to being one-time-use-only items, but a player can create them repeatedly after acquiring the first copy. With that in mind, how does one find Bulk Up (TM064) in Paldea?

Bulk Up (TM064) is in Alfornada, located in South Province Area 6. Head towards the Pokemon gym at the northeast corner of town, and check the right side of the building. A yellow beacon, signifying a TM, is there waiting.

Finding a TM while traveling only grants trainers one copy. Keep reading to learn how the TM can be crafted as often as necessary, along with the materials needed.

Ingredients for Crafting Bulk Up (TM064)

Acquiring a TM for the first time unlocks it as a recipe for crafting later. Any trainer who needs more than one copy of Bulk Up (TM064) must have the following materials:

  • 3,000 LP
  • 3 Makuhita Sweat
  • 3 Axew Scales

Defeating pokemon in wild battles or Let’s Go mode will grant you these items, so make sure to defeat any wild Makuhita and Axew. For league points (LP), trainers can earn a set amount by checking any tera raid crystal in Paldea. There’s no need to join the raid for these points.
