From Rock Smash to Cut, Strength to Fly, Hidden Moves are crucial in unlocking your adventure. Here's where to find all the HMs in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Whether a tree or a rock, a cliff face or a body of water, there's always something blocking your progress in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Thankfully, there are special abilities, known as Hidden Moves, that you can use to get by these obstacles. In BDPS, the system has been reworked so that you no longer need to teach your Pokémon them - instead, they work from your Pokétch

To use a HM, either inteact with the object (such as a rock) and select Yes, or access your Pokétch with the R Button, press it again to enlarge it, select the HM window and choose your ability.
