One of the best moves you can have your Azumarill know in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is Belly Drum. This move reduces the HP of the user but maximizes the user’s attack. This is an important asset for battling in high-tier Tera Raids, like the upcoming Charizard ones. Unfortunately, Azumarill can’t learn Belly Drum by leveling and none of the Pokemon in its egg group can do so either. Thus, there’s no simple way to learn it through breeding.

However, there is a trick you can do with a special item that involves transferring the move from another Pokemon to Azumarill. This is how to get Belly Drum on Azumarill in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Let’s learn this neat trick together!

  • For this to work, you’ll need of course an Azumarill and a Hariyama, which is the evolved form of Makuhita. This is the only Pokemon currently in Scarlet and Violet that learns Belly Drum by leveling.
  • Next, you’ll need to make your way over to Cascarrafa and purchase the Mirror Herb at the Delibird Item Shop. This will run you about 30,000 Poke Dollars, so it’s definitely not a cheap investment. This item is the key for move transferring.
  • After that, you’ll want to go somewhere and set up a picnic. Before starting, remove all of the Pokemon in your party except for the Hariyama and Azumarill. Delete a move from Azumarill’s slots to make room for the new one.
  • Finally, make sure that Azumarill is holding the Mirror Herb before you begin. Start the picnic, and within a short period of time, the move should transfer right over to Azumarill. Now Azumarill is all ready to battle in difficult Tera Raids!
  • Since the Mirror Herb is such an expensive item, it is best to do this as a late or post-game project rather than early on, especially since that’s when you’ll be fighting in the harder Tera Raids.
