Azumarill does not learn Belly Drum from leveling up, and there is no Belly Drum TM in the game. So how do you teach Belly Drum to Azumarill?

Well, If you head to Cascarrafa city and head to the Delibird Presents store on the second floor of the town. You can purchase an Item called “Mirror Herb” for 30,000 Poke Dollars. This item’s description is as follows.

“An item to be held by a Pokemon. This herb will allow the holder to mirror an opponent’s stat increases to boost its own stats- but only once.”

Now that doesn’t sound like it will accomplish anything, but the hidden ability of this item will allow Azumarill to pick up another Pokemon’s move.

You need to find a Hariyama that knows the move Belly Drum. Add it to your party and remove any other Pokemon besides the Azumarill and the Hariyama.

Go into your Azumarill and remove one of its moves, so it only has three. Now open up a picnic with the two Pokemon, and the Belly Drum move should move over to Azumarill.

You don’t need to do anything during the picnic, wait a few seconds, and the Belly Drum move will transfer over to Azumarill. Now you have an Azumarill with Belly Drum, which will be huge for upcoming Tera Raid battles.

This technique has proved useful for both the Charizard and Cinderace 7-Star Tera Raid battles, and your Azumarill will likely continue be a valuable asset for future events. Therefore, it is certainly worth it to put in the effort!
