    R/B/Y: I always use a Bellsprout or Oddish for Cut (and maybe Flash? I forget if they can learn it). Surf and Strength are usually on my main team. Same with Fly, because I'm lazy.

    G/S/C: Bellsprout and Oddish for Cut and Flash. Surf, Strength, and Fly are on my main team. I think I usually get a Krabby for Rock Smash, and I use Gyarados for Waterfall and Whirlpool.

    R/S/E: Linoone/Zigzagoon is pretty awesome. It can use a lot of HMs, and it has Pickup, which is pretty handy. I think I catch a Wailmer for Dive and Whirlpool and Waterfall purposes... was there Whirlpool in these games? I forget. Whatever.

    D/P/Pt: One word. Bibarel.

      R/S/E: Zigzagoon

      D/P/Pt: Bibarel or... *gets shot* Torterra.

      Torterra was useless to me and I didn't feel like catching a Bibarel, so I just used Torterra as an HM slave with Cut/Strength/Rock Smash/Rock Climb. =D

        R/S/E: Zigzagoon. Never bothered to catch Linoone.
        FR/LG: I use a variety of things for this. Apparently Aerodactyl is a pretty good slave, and Gyarados isn't too bad either.
        D/P/Pt: A Bibarel and my Mantine, which is my Surf/Waterfall/Defog slave. Bibarel does everything else.

          That's... Better than Arceus.

          I usually use Bibarel, but I'm thinking about using multiple Smeargle, keeping all of them but the one I need for the Route(s) I'm on in storage.

            I recently traded all these pokemon over from Diamond to HeartGold and I saw that my Giratina knew Cut and Strength, so I rounded it out with Rock Climb and Rock Smash. Not really planning to use for much anyways, and Giratina is ugly.

              I only use HM slaves when doing Mono-runs (usually, my favorite type can't use all the HMs I need). When I do use slaves, I usually skip the trouble and hack a Dragonite

              But yeah, normal games means no HM slaves.

              Hmmm...2 ways I have HMSlaves:

              Mew-If I get mine cloned, 2 cover all my HMs.

              However, my current method on Platinum:

              -Dragonite-Fly/Defog/Surf/Waterfakk
              -Garchomp-Rock Smash/Rock Climb/Cut/Strength

                I usually don't use HM slaves either. Surf, Fly and Strength i just teach to Pokemon in my party, they are okay moves, so i don't really care. If i need some other HM, ill just get a Pokemon, teach it to him, and drop him again in the next city

                First starters, honestly, I hate the term "slave" (to rude and insulting in my opinion) I call them "HM Partners" or "HM Companions".

                I only use 4 HM's - 2 a lot (Cut and Surf - two other are Fly and Strenght)
                • Soul Silver I have not yet decided.
                • Pearl, I have not yet decided on cut, Buizel is my main water Pokemon, and surf is one of my favorite water attacks, not just for HM, also a regular move.

                for my Unova games
                • Cut: my Liepard - its always part of the team
                • Fly: Unfezant - usually in the PC
                • Strenght: a Mienfoo - not the one I use in my team, but one in the PC
                • Surf: Dewott - not just HM, I keep as a regular move too

                other HM's I don't use, unless I really need them, I"ll search whom ever I have in the PC and is compatible with the HM.

                Thanks for pointing that out, i really don't like the term either.
                I like your "HM partner" way better :3
