Elite Charged TM

Elite Charged TM

The Elite Charged TM (Japanese: すごいわざマシン スペシャル Elite Special Move Machine) is a type of TM in Pokémon GO.

Using an Elite Charged TM on a Pokémon changes its Charged Attack to a different move of the player's choice, within the Pokémon's possible move pool. Most legacy and event-exclusive moves, such as Community Day moves, can also be learned this way. However, Elite Charged TMs cannot teach Frustration or Return, even if the Pokémon is Shadow or Purified. It cannot replace Frustration, except during specific events that allow this such as a Team GO Rocket takeover. An Elite Charged TM also cannot teach Smeargle any new moves.

Moves exclusive to Elite Charged TMs

The following lists all the moves that can only be learned using an Elite Charged TM, outside of special in-game events. Shadow, Purified, and most Event Pokémon are also eligible to learn these moves.

Games Description
GO This Technical Machine lets you choose a Charged Attack to teach to a Pokémon.


An Elite Charged TM was first available as part of the Community Day Box for  1,280 during Abra Community Day. Since then, it has been available in Community Day Boxes for Community Days that featured an event-exclusive Charged Attack. Oddly, despite Abra Community Day featuring a Fast Attack Counter, an Elite Charged TM was included in its Community Day Box.

An Elite Charged TM has been rewarded to players who reach Rank 7 in GO Battle League by the end of Season 1 and Season 3.
