Where to Find Sword Dance (TM088)

Almost all TMs in the game can be made. But it would be best if players first located this TM to learn the “recipe.” Fortunately, TM088 is not particularly well concealed and is easy to locate. Go to the lake connecting North Province (Area One) and North Province (Area Two). Players may pay for TM088 at the lake’s epicentre.

How to Craft Sword Dance (TM088)

The following ingredients can be used to craft this TM after players have the Sword Dance: 

  • 5000 League Points (LP)
  • 3 Scyther Claw
  • 3 Zangoose Claw
  • 3 Gible Scales

As players fight and catch different Pokémon across Paldea, they’ll discover that they drop various crafting tools and resources. These products and resources are traded for League Points (LP) at TM Machines. Not all resources have the same worth, and if players don’t want to use them in trade for League Points (LP), players may use them to produce various TMs to improve their Pokémon’s move sets. 

Like all Pokémon in the game, Scyther must be battled in the wild and either defeated or captured to obtain Scyther Claws. Each Scyther players beat or capture will reward players with one or two claws to add to their expanding collection of Pokémon items.
