we’ve seen GameFreak try to replace the mechanic in various ways. Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee do so with a new type of move they’ve labeled .
These special moves learned by your starter Pokemon, be it Eevee or Pikachu, will act as HM’s, clearing out bushes, dashing through the sky, or skimming across the water.
Here’s where to get every Secret Technique in the game:
