What are your preferences for Hidden machine Slaves?

Are you smiling your skull in half because your SMEARGLE can FLY?

-I have FLASH on ABRA for Gens 1 & 2
-MANTINE is my WHIRLPOOL user gen 2
-SMEARGLE is my dawg in third gen (FLY, DIVE, CUT, STRENGTH)
-SMEARGLE is still my HM user in Sinnoh (FLY, SURF, DEFOG, ROCK CLIMB)

I use Krictune. Mine knows Cut, Rock Smash, Strength, and thats it.

02-23-2009, 12:23 PM
I use Tropius, zigzagoon/Linoone, and Bidoof/Bibarel as my HM slaves. other than that I try to avoid to HMs on pokemon I use unless it's useful in battle.

Those blue squid guys and that beautiful fat beaver are my personal favorites. I probably have a few others, but my memory likes messing with me whenever I post for something like this. :D

Golem, Tropius and Bibarel are my HM slaves :3
Golem for Kanto/Jhoto
Tropius for Hoenn
Bibarel for Sinnoh
IIRC they all learn atleast 4 HM's :o

02-23-2009, 04:43 PM
Golem, Lapras, and Farfetch'd. One for water moves, one for rock moves and one for everything else. I have more but I don't tend to use them as much.

I use Nincada and Psyduck in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, Meowth in Fire Red/Leaf Green, and Machop in Diamond/Pearl. Usually.

02-23-2009, 07:18 PM
I'm only saying two...Geodude & Nincada


02-23-2009, 07:22 PM
Bibarel without a doubt.

02-23-2009, 07:22 PM
Ziggzagoon/Linoone can learn every HM except Fly, so they are by far the best

I use Tropius in R/S and Machop in D/P.

Aerodactly & Kabotops, it would be Omastar, but it can't learn Cut.

~ Fly
~ Strength
~ Defog
~ Rock Smash

~ Surf
~ Waterfall
~ Cut
~ Rock Climb

I only play Gen 3... :/

I generally have 3 battling Pokemon ingame, with a Zigzagoon for Pickup, and the following two encompass all of the HMs:


-Rock Smash

02-23-2009, 08:05 PM
Bidoof/Bibarel. They're just fit for the job.


02-23-2009, 11:30 PM
Other, I only use pokemon for fly and surf. :P

In my case, it's usually Altaria and Golduck.

I chose BIDOOF/BIBAREL because they're very cute~:redface:

Actually my hm slave is Mudkip Marshtomp.

Except for fly, which is drifblim LOL

I nearly always keep a Pokemon with Surf and one with Fly in my party, and not just as HM slaves. For that, I nearly always use Bibarel.

Bidoof and Bibarel are fantastic HM Slaves.

Wooper is also really good, not sure how many people have used him for HM Slaving.

02-24-2009, 01:49 AM
Zigzagoon. Good ammount of learnable HM's, and it's ability sometimes helps.

02-24-2009, 02:04 AM

I usually use a cute little farfecth'd for Red and blue since it learns fly and cut and is easy to get. Then for the others I just kinda pick whatever I have in my box that can learn it. I guess I usually use Drowzee for flash

02-24-2009, 03:13 PM
i use a hacked mew someone gave me i only use it for hm duty and the only hacked thing about it is that its caught in some weird place i think it route 202. no hacked moves or stats actually quite bad stats

I uses Wooper's evolution.

and geodude's evolutions.

they make good slaves.^^

I just got a DS. <3

And so I use all. Wow, that was fast. <33

02-28-2009, 01:12 AM
Definitely Bibarrel. It knows most of the HMs as well as having decent stats, making it the best out of all the HM slaves IMO.

02-28-2009, 01:17 AM
This is surprisingly easy. There are 8 HMs, and a Pokemon can have 4 moves. I look for Pokemon that can have 4 HMs, and found that a Giratina/Quagsire combo works well.

I have a Gyarados for an HM slave. Waterfall, Strength, Surf, and Rock Smash, all in one Pokemon!

03-02-2009, 05:42 PM
I've only ever had one, two.. Two HM slaves.

Infernape & Tropius, so I guess I'll vote Tropius.

03-02-2009, 05:52 PM
i used bidoof. :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface: :redface:

Bidoof is a retarded prarie dog that deserves to die in a hole somewhere due to its creation.

I use Wooper, because Wooper is made of win.

has got to be mew, it can learn any tm and HM, seems fit for the job.

03-03-2009, 07:20 PM
Bidoof For The Win
