Elite Fast TM Pokémon Go Moves

The Elite Fast TM is a type of TM in Pokémon Go. When an Elite Fast Tm is used on a Pokémon it changes Fast Attack to an entirely different move of the player’s choice. 

Community Day moves and other legacy and event-exclusive moves can be learned in this way. 

Also when an Elite Fast TM is used on a Pokémon which can learn Hidden Power, the Hidden Power type will then appear in the move selection list. 

Here’s a list of ‘Elite Fast TM Pokémon Go Moves’

How to beat Terrakion in Pokémon Go

Published

How to beat Terrakion in Pokémon Go guide

Terrakion, the Cavern Pokémon, is coming to five-star raids! This guy is a Rock- and Fighting-type Legendary Pokémon and is said to be very strong! 

It’ll be better to challenge it with Water-, Grass-, Fighting-, Ground-, Psychic-, Steel-, and Fairy-type Pokémon. This is what we recommend to beat Terrakion.

Below given raid counters guide is designed to help you beat Terrakion with your best counters.

  • Mewtwo with Confusion and Psystrike
  • Latios with Zen Headbutt and Psychic
  • Metagross with Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash
  • Espion with Confusion and Psychic
  • Machamp with Counter and Dynamic Punch
  • Kyogre with Waterfall and Hydro Pump
  • Alakazam with Confusion and Psychic 

Terrakion’s part-Rock typing makes it vulnerable to Ground, Steel, Grass, Water, and other Fighting-types, which gives you a wide range of team options.

When it’s raining take out your Kyogre and water types, when it’s sunny take out your grass- and ground-types, psychic-, and fairy-types while it’s cloudy. 

There are ample other ways to take down Terrakion. It would be better if you have any community day Pokémon, like Sceptile with Frenzy Plant against this Pokemon. 

We recommend using SmackDown and Rock Slide moveset for Terrakion. It has several weaknesses, however, it can be used to take down many fire-, flying-, bug- and ice-types easily.
