    So, what was your favorite TM (and/or HM) from Generation III?

    As for TMs, my favorite would be TM02 Dragon Claw. Boy did I clone the crap out of that one in Emerald... XD

    I'd say my favorite HM would be Surf. 95 power, 15 PP, AND reusable? Yeah.

    EQ all the way. 100 power with 100acc, perfect.
    From HMs, Surf is the best. It's pretty similar to EQ.

    Back when I was playing through the games, these two would probably have been my answers as well (although Return seemed to work really well for my Sceptile). And not only was it my favorite HM, but I'd have to say that Surf is my favorite Water-type move of all time.

      Surf definitely, I always equip it on my Water-types because it's reliable and helps you travel on water!

        Mine would have to be the usual Surf and Earthquake. Because of their power.

          HM Dive! It's a shame that Dive has so much more potential in terms of using it outside of battle though. I don't have a favourite TM.

            I like Earthquake because it's so strong and Surf because just like the rest of the Earth, Hoenn is 80% water xD

            My favorite is Flamethrower, especially since you can get it however many times you want in RSE. :) It's also my favorite move anyway, so yeah!

            As for TMs that were introduced in gen III, I'll go with Dragon Claw. Awesome move, and I always seem to use it and never have one to send over to my storage game, lol. I need mooore.

            Overheat, I don't know why, but back in '04, I just loved how the screen turned red, and I had a little chuckle over it.

            Springtime, the sun is back and the breeze to accompany it..

              HM Surf & Strenght: powerful, useful, reusable and even nice animations.

                    TM 22 Solarbeam just cause it's one of my fave moves :D

                    I also like Toxic, Aerial Ace, Psychic and Earthquake, the latter of which because it meant I could evolve my Rhydon earlier and teach it to it instead of waiting to learn it lol

                    Hon. mention to Shadow Ball, Ice Beam, Giga Drain and Dig

                    HM-wise I quite like Waterfall, I think it's pretty Also liked the introduction of Dive, that was pretty neat outside of battle.

                      Overheat was always a must on whoever could use it for me, I'd use it on someone like Manectric and he was a boss.
