A Hidden Machine (hereby referred to as "HM") is a machine that teaches Pokémon towers special moves that are used to access different levels. HMs can be used during and outside of battle.

HMs can be learned by selecting a Pokémon and selecting "TM/HM" just like TMs. The only difference between TMs and HMs are that HMs require finding them, instead of having them from the beginning, like TMs.

HMs on Pokémon Tower Defense work much like TMs. They can be forgotten like normal moves and they are learned just like TMs.

List of HMs

Cut

Cut is found after beating Diglett's Cave. It can be used on the top most square on Route 2 to cut a tree and get Flash.

Flash

Flash can be obtained on Route 2, given to the player by Professor Oak. Cut is required to obtain Flash.

Place the Pokémon with Cut on the spot next to the bush. Cut does not have to be the selected Pokémon's move. Press "Next" at the closing cutscene and Oak will arrive to give the HM Flash. If Abra is in your party, Oak will not arrive and the Old Man will to ask to trade for Mr. Mime.

Flash is required to enter Rock Tunnel. A party Pokémon must have Flash in its list of moves to enter. If the player enters Rock Tunnel without a Pokémon with Flash, the giant Onix will appear and the player will run away.
