Whether it’s making sure that you’re able to evolve the right Pokemon into their jacked forms using a Reaper Cloth, or just ensuring that your squad is learning the right moves, we get the rush!

Earthquake TM Pokemon Sword and Shield

Earthquake is quite the legacy move in Pokemon, and it’s been used to great aplomb over the generations. When it comes to Pokemon Sword and Shield, it’s described as a move where “the user sets off an earthquake that strikes every Pokemon around it.” 

Now to the tough part. It’s also known as TR10 here and not a TM in Galar. This means that it’s essentially a one-time use item. Once you use it on a Pokemon, it’s going to break, so if you want to teach more than one critter Earthquake then you’re going to have to get your hands on more than one TR of this type to do so. 

Unfortunately, they’re pretty rare. There’s no set Earthquake TR spawn to our knowledge. If you’re lucky you’ll run into a Wild Area Watt Trader who’s got it in their inventory to sell to you, or you’ll find it kicking around the Wild Area as a random spawn. Either way, it’s going to be down to luck and chance instead of anything that you can do but don’t give up! Keep cycling around and you’re sure to happen upon one soon.

Now that you know how to get the Earthquake TM in Pokemon Sword and Shield, it should be a piece of cake to find one so long as you get lucky with a Watt Trader or a Wild Area spawn. It’s not you, mate, it’s the game. Need help with anything else while you’re adventuring around Galar? Why not check out the following tips and tricks that we’ve put together for your benefit:
