|TM16 Light Screen|
|1||Rooftop of Celadon City Department Store – Give thirsty NPC a Fresh Water||No|
You’ll get TM16 Light Screen as a gift from an NPC with pink hair that’s on the rooftop of the Celadon City Department Store. If you give this NPC a Fresh Water from the vending machine, she will give you the Light Screen TM in exchange.
But before making it to Celadon City, you’ll need your Thunder Badge from the Vermilion City Gym and you’ll need to make it through Rock Tunnel first.

TM16 Light Screen Details + Uses
|Light Screen Move Details|
Light Screen is a Psychic-type Status move that provides a protection barrier for your party from Special Attacks. Even if the user of the move is switched out of battle, Light Screen’s protection will remain for at least 5 turns for your entire party.
Light Screen is often used in combination with the move Reflect, which protects against Physical Attacks.
With both moves in play, all incoming damage will be reduced by 50%.
But since each attack’s category is dependent on typing in FRLG, it is much easier to predict any incoming Special Attacks.
Fire, Water, Grass, Electric, Ice, Psychic, Dragon, and Dark-type moves all use the Special Attack stat for damage calculation in FireRed & LeafGreen – so it’s best to use Light Screen versus any Pokémon of these types.
