Where To Get TM74 Gyro Ball in Pokémon Black & White

Using Gyro Ball in Pokémon Black

TM74 Gyro Ball can be bought for 10,000 Pokédollars in the Nimbasa City Pokémon Center at the desk selling TMs.

In Pokémon Black and White, Poké Marts are no longer a separate building. Instead the marts are included inside Pokémon Centers, and the mart desk is located immediately to the right of the Center’s entrance.

You’ll be able to reach Nimbasa City after defeating Gym Leader Burgh in Castelia City. After beating Burgh, you’ll need to cross the sandstorm on Route 4 to reach Nimbasa.

Gyro Ball is a move that should only be taught to your slow, hard-hitting Pokémon.

If the user is much slower than its target, Gyro Ball can deal significant damage. Here’s the formula used to calculate the attack’s base Power:

Base Power = min(150, (25 * SpeedofTarget ) / (SpeedofUser) +1)

The maximum Power that Gyro Ball can reach is 150, which is significant for a move with perfect accuracy.

Consider teaching the attack to your slowest tank Pokémon and allow them to flourish versus your opponents speedsters.

Pokémon like Ferrothorn are the perfect fit for Gyro Ball. Ferrothorn’s base Speed is 20, almost ensuring that it’ll face-off against quicker opponents.

Golurk is another fantastic choice to teach Gyro Ball, as it features a 55 base Speed stat and a whopping 124 base Attack.
