TM003 is “Fake Tears” a move that makes your Pokemon feign crying to fluster the target and harshly lower the target’s Sp. Defense stat. To make your Pokemon learn this move as with most other TMs you will first need to find the Disc item somewhere in the vast open world of Scarlet and Violet. Check out the guide below to find out where to get Fake Tears TM and how to craft more once you get it.
Where to Get Fake Tears TM in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
To get the Fake Tears TM item in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet:
