Re: Gym TM Clarifications and Final Ruling(s)
I believe that the Gym Pokemon can use the Gym TM, but only under certain circumstances.
1. The Gym pokemon must be in a Gym Battle. (Technically gym pokemon can't be used out of gym battles.)
2. If the Gym Pokemon is owned, it can only use the TM during a gym battle. Technically it means the TM is temporarily taught.
Now, if the trainer buys the TM and teaches it to his pokemon, then it's fine. I just think that it's unfair that a gym leader should be able to get his TM for free and unlimited use. Not to mention the fact that not all gym leaders have a TM.
Gym TMs are free, but only for Gym Pokemon in Gym Battles.
