How To Get Fly (TM097) in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

For Pokémon Scarlet and Violet players who want to improve the move set of their flying type Pokémon, the best strategy is to learn how to get Fly (TM097) in Scarlet and Violet and teach the move to key flying-type Pokémon in their roster. 

Fly is a powerful flying type attack in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Previous games provided players with the opportunity to teach their Pokémon Fly through the use of an HM (Hidden Machine) so they could both use it in battle and to fly across the map. Scarlet and Violet makes this skill available to players as a combat only move that is teachable via TM097. 

Read on to discover how to initially obtain TM097 and what materials are needed to craft this useful and dynamic move.

Where to Find TM097 Fly

TMs or “Technical Machines” have been key items in the Pokémon series since its inception. TMs are items that allow players to teach their Pokémon special moves that they otherwise may not have been able to learn by leveling up or evolving. In Scarlet and Violet TMs are scattered through the game’s world, known as the Paldea region, available as a reward for winning critical battles, completing key sidequests, or retrieved from a hidden area on the game’s map. 

TM097 can be obtained in East Province Area Two of Paldea. Locate the TM just northwest of the Team Star Fire Crew Base, and southwest of the area’s Pokémon Center.

How to Craft TM097 Fly

Crafting TMs is a special feature of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. TM Crafting is achieved by earning LP or “League Points” and collecting a specified amount of certain materials. TM097 is no different.

This TM can be crafted by earning 5,000 LP, and finding the feathers of specific flying type Pokémon–specifically 3 Squawkabilly feathers, 3 Bombardier feathers, and 3 Rufflet feathers.

Once the LP has been earned and the materials have been collected, the TM can be crafted at a TM Machine located inside Pokémon Centers near the front counter.
