If there’s a trend among trainers in all Pokémon titles is that most only teach offensive abilities to their team. While this isn’t bad, there are some moves out there that can change the course of the battle. One of the moves you’ll find early is Taunt. Some people tend to ignore this ability as it doesn’t do damage at all, and it just takes an ability space on your creatures, well, there’s more to it than that. By using this move, you’re forcing your opponent to only use attack moves for three turns which can be a good strategy depending on your team. If you’re considering that, we’ll tell you how to get TM 087 Taunt in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
How to get TM 087 Taunt in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
As always, there are two ways to get this TM. You can either find it or craft it. The first one is good, but you’ll only be able to use it for one Pokémon. Crafting, however, will let you make as many as you want. Let’s focus first on how to get TM 087 Taunt on the map in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet:
- One TM is on a cliff south of Casseroya Lake
- The second is on top of a large cliff northeast of East Province (Area Three)
Contrary to other TMs, there are two locations to get this one. For the second location, you’ll need the high-jump ability on your legendary Pokemon, so be sure to obtain that first.
