How To Get TM62 Acrobatics in Pokémon Black & White

Standing outside the Mistralton Gym in Pokémon Black

You’ll receive TM62 Acrobatics after defeating Skyla, the Gym Leader in Mistralton City. But before you’re able to challenge Skyla you’ll first need to defeat Clay at his Gym in Driftveil City.

After defeating Clay, you’ll be able to access Chargestone Cave. This cave’s exit leads directly to Mistralton City.

As for the move itself: Acrobatics is a Flying-type attack that deals damage at 55 base Power. If the user has no held item, the Power of the move doubles to 110.

Acrobatics is a Physical Flying-type attack that has the potential to inflict significant damage. Its base Power of 55 is doubled to 110 if the user has no held item.

The move also has a beefy 15 PP, allowing you to deal some serious blows several times in any given battle.

Held items are a huge advantage in competitive play, so Acrobatics isn’t used in that realm. However, it can be a great asset throughout your single-player journey in Pokémon Black & White.

Held items aren’t really needed to beat the main story, and at the time when you get this TM it could offer some usefulness to some degree.

Who To Teach Acrobatics To

Archeops is the ideal user of Acrobatics, as it has one of the best Attack stats in Black & White.

Its Flying typing has the potential to boost the moves Power to 165 thanks to STAB (Same type attack bonus.) But you technically won’t need TM62 for Archeops, as it learns the move at level 28 by default.

There are several other Flying types that can only learn the move via TM62, though.

These Pokémon Mantine, Beautifly, Vespiquen, and Tornadus. The best from this list worth teaching the TM to is Tornadus, as it has the best Attack stat of this group.
