HMs can be used any number of times, and cannot be tossed, sold, or sold[[held item|held]]. This contrasts to TMs in Generations {{gen|I}} to {{gen|IV}}, in which TMs are single-use items that can be tossed and, sold, or held. In [[Generation III]] onward, HMs cannot be stored in a [[PC]].
Moves taught by HMs are all [[field move]]s in the games in which they are HMs, but some field moves are not HM moves. Like all field moves, they can be used outside of battle even if the Pokémon has fainted or no {{PP}} in that move (using it in the field does not consume PP). Except for [[Generation V]], specific [[Badge]]s must be obtained by the player before they can use an HM move outside of battle to advance the game's storyline.
