There are a few requirements before he can grant you the Thunder Wave, so it’s easier said than done. And before instructing your Pokémon, you must locate Technical Machines (TMs). Additionally, Thunder Wave is relatively easy to obtain early-game TM.

You’ll be free to travel to Area One and discover the game’s open area once you’ve finished the tutorial and had Nemona at your side at the peak of the lighthouse.

When you get to the Pokémon Center in Mesagoza City, nearby, you will notice a man standing behind a counter. There is an apparent yellow text bubble over the head of this NPC.

This NPC will inform you that you may obtain a wonderful present from him once you successfully take down four trainers in Area One when interacting with him. Simply engaging in a fight and eliminating four trainers will do this.

He will gift you the Thunder Wave TM when you return and speak with him.

Hi! I'm George Dermanakis, the owner of NeuralGamer. I'm a passionate gamer, writer, and website developer. I've watched as NeuralGamer grew from a one-person team (me) to a team consisting of content writers, organizers, and more. Read some of my articles and make a judgment call — was it up to your standards? Hopefully, it was a smooth experience. I have many thousands of hours on Steam, and I consider myself an expert in any Paradox Interactive game, Cookie Run Kingdom, Dark Souls, The Forest, Civilization 6, Tropico and Merge games. Between these games, I have over 10,000 hours! If you need help, let us know through the Contact Us page. Thanks!

Shortly after, though, she became the go-to girl for our other writers when they needed advice, eventually becoming our Chief Content Editor. DON'T ask her about how many hours she has on Minecraft.
