HMs have always been a crucial – and frowned upon — feature in the Pokemon main series games. These ‘Hidden Machines’ let you traverse the region faster while also getting rid of and overcoming obstacles which would prevent from progressing further in the game.
What players didn’t like about HMs were that they were basically moves that you needed to teach Pokemon to use outside of battle. These moves could also be used within battles, but a lot of them were too weak or useless for them to actually be impactful in battles.
HMs also could not be forgotten by Pokemon normally, who had to be taken to a specific ‘Move Deleter’ to get rid of the move, and hence were a complete burden to teach and use.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl made a huge quality-of-life improvement. You now just need to have the HM — now called TM — in your possession to use it in the overworld! For example, when you use the TM Fly, you will see a wild Staraptor come to your aid and whisk you away to the destination you want to reach.
