In the RSE, it would be Zigzagoon or Linoone since they can learn Cut , Surf and Rock Smash (Linoone can also learn Strength)

As much as I love Linoone, they make awesome HM slaves because their ability is great for toting them around the region, too.

Tropius makes a really good one too, it can learn Cut, Fly, Strength, Flash, and Rock Smash.

From personal experience, some really good HM slaves are Tropius, Linoone, Azumarill, Pelipper, Golduck and Skarmory. You can cover all of the HMs by using a combo of two of them.

Tropius is by far the best HM Slave out of all the Pokemon for land HMs, let alone 3rd Gen. Wailord is the best for Water HMs.

I think I just incorporated HM's into my team, by giving each pokemon one HM so I could have a full team of six pokemon.

in FR i would have meowth and i would teach it a couple HMs and use its ability to randomly find items so i wouldn't have to use item finder constantly to get berries. i also would use pay day combined with amulet coin to get money also. its pretty versatile for non-battle related stuff.

For me I would use Gyarados as my primary water HM slave giving Gyarados the moves Surf, Waterfall, Dive and Strength. I was never found of Gyarados to begin with. As for my primary land HM slave I would use Linoone because it learned Cut, Strength, Rock Smash and I gave it Surf as well....I was also never too found of Linoone as well.

Strangely enough I made my Ludicolo into a HM slave. Which is odd because she became my favourite Pokemon for a long time and my champion Beauty contest winner.

My main HM slave in Sapphire was always Tropius. It would generally have Cut, Flash, Fly and Rock Smash. Funny enough, I remember my other HM slave from my original run on Sapphire was Kyogre. I was already at the point where I didn't want to use Legendaries on my team, but I justified it as being okay to use since it could learn the other four HMs. Looking back, I feel awful for making a legendary one of my HM slaves.

Linoone/Tropius, sometimes I'd just let my party of six learn a HM or two each, or sometimes Gyarados/Linoone.

Most times I'd just let my Swampert learn Surf (still one of my favourite moves) and my Swellow learn Fly. Then the rest would just be divided amongst the HM slaves.

But Tropius is a really good HM slave, man. I had no idea until my third re-run of Ruby.

Linoone. Ecen though it looks cute, you gotta admit that it has a pretty suck-ish movepool. I used it for Surf, Strength, Cut and Flash . o.o
