When you think of signature Grass type moves for Pokemon, there’s ones such as Vine Whip and Razor Leaf. However, the Grass move Magic Leaf is just as powerful, has good accuracy and can be taught to many different Pokemon using a TM. Grass Pokemon aren’t the easiest Pokemon to utilize due to their many weaknesses, but they do have their place as battlers. Pokemon like Florges, Tropius and Liligant are all perfect counters for Water, Rock and Ground types. By teaching them Magic Leaf, they’ll be able to counter any boss with this typing. This is how to get Magic Leaf (TM033) in Scarlet and Violet.

  • 3 Petilil Leaf
  • 1500 LP
