Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: The Great Crater Of Paldea, Area Zero - All TM Locations 1
Image: Nintendo Life

Inside The Great Crater of Paldea lies Area Zero, a location shrouded in mystery — at least until you get there in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet's final chapter.

Given the nature of Area Zero, there is no minimap when you're inside the crater. Therefore, it's up to us Pokémon experts to show you where to find some juicy TMs in the area.

Here is where you'll find all TMs inside Area Zero. If you're looking for our TM hub, which includes all recipes, you can find that here.
