The most important aspect of a Pokémon game is to catch ’em all. False swipe is the move that lets you do that with ease and without letting the Pokémon faint. It gives you the ability to take down a Pokémon to the lowest possible HP i.e.1. This makes catching them fairly easy and very quick.

The game itself defines it as a craftable item “that prevents the Target from fainting, the target is left with 1 HP”. It has power: 40, Accuracy: 100, and PP: 40.

This is quite useful and pretty important for Shiny Hunters out there! Because it’ll give them the ability to catch Pokémon very easily. Even the ones that are quite difficult to catch. In short, it brings the odds to their side.

How To Unlock False Swipe TM

It’s not that hard of a task to be able to get this TM in the game. We just need to meet a Professor in another city, who is going to unlock it for you. Then we will be able to craft it later at the TM machine.

He will ask you for at least 30 Pokémon to get a reward. So you will need to collect 30 Pokémon, which is something that most players do within a few hours of playing the game. Once you give him that, he’ll give you the TM057s which is False Swipe!
