You’ll be able to buy a total of 500 coins for 10,000 Pokédollars, so if you wanted to buy all the coins necessary then each copy of TM24 would cost 80,000 Pokédollars.
TM24 Thunderbolt Location (Step-by-Step)
Step 1: Starting at Celadon City’s entrance, walk west a little bit past the Pokémon Center.

Enter the smaller building when you have enough coins (the Prize Corner).
Or if you need coins then you can buy them or win them from the Game Corner next door.
Step 4: Now inside the Prize Corner, speak to the cashier on the far right.
They will sell copies of TM24 Thunderbolt for 4,000 coins each.
TM24 Thunderbolt Details + Uses
|Thunderbolt Move Details|
Thunderbolt is considered the best Electric-type attack in FRLG, and it’s absolutely worth getting onto your team.
The move offers great damage with perfect accuracy. Plus you can get multiple copies of the TM, so you can teach it to multiple Pokémon in your party.
And if this move is used by an Electric-type Pokémon, Thunderbolt’s base Power becomes 143 thanks to STAB.
Thunderbolt also has strong PP capacity with 15 starting PP. This allows the attack to be used repeatedly over the course of multiple battles.
And it gets even better:
Thunderbolt also has a 10% chance of paralyzing its target with each hit.
There are very few downsides to this move, so it’s absolutely worth using for Electric-type coverage.
Tip: Since Thunderbolt is a Special-type attack, be sure to pair it with your best Special Attackers. Magneton, Jolteon, and Zapdos are all lethal options to teach Thunderbolt thanks to their high Special Attack stats.
