Gen 8 Mechanics

In version 8.1.0 of Pixelmon, an overhaul was done to Pixelmon for Gen 8 movesets, with changes to TMs and the addition of TRs. Galarian generational blanks can be obtained from shopkeepers, Tier 1 and Tier 2 pokeloot and from Common, Uncommon, Rare and Spooky bosses. Alolan generational blanks can be found as tier 4 (Ultra Space) Special drops. Older generational blanks cannot be obtained without cheats.

TMs/TRs aren't in drop pools or craftable, instead players can use TMs and TRs to create/duplicate moves. By adding this Blank item to a Pokémon as a held item, the first move used (That is a legitimate TM/TR move) will imprint onto the blank. After x amount of move uses, the disk will complete and the player can remove it for use on another Pokémon or trade it away.

      ** At the moment TMs require 100 uses to fully complete
      ** At the moment TRs require 25 uses to fully complete
      ** The number of uses needed can be configured in the external drop files.

This means old players might find themselves with a lot of old TMs, these TMs, however, will only be useable on pokemon that still have Gen 7 movesets, or that still have these TMs listed in their stat files(Server Configurations).

Generational TMs

















Previous Mechanics

TMs are items that teach certain moves to Pokémon. They can be obtained from shopkeepers or as special drops. To have a Pokémon learn a move through the TM, the TM must be right-clicked on the desired Pokémon. If the TM is compatible with the Pokémon, the Pokémon will attempt to learn the move. By default, the TM will disappear when the move is successfully taught.

List of TMs


HMs are similar to TMs, teaching certain moves to Pokémon, except that they can be used infinitely without disappearing. Unlike in the Pokémon games, these moves can be deleted or overwritten by other moves normally.

HMs are used to be obtained as special drops however, HMs can no longer be obtained naturally as of 8.2.0.

Config settings

  • "allowTMReuse": If enabled, TMs can be used an infinite number of times without breaking. If disabled, TMs break after one use.
  • "needHMToRide": If set to true, Pokémon that can be normally mounted must know either Fly or Surf to be mountable.
