|1||S.S. Anne Ship – Lower Deck (B1F) in the second-to-last room from the left.||No|
TM44 Rest can be found on the S.S Anne’s lower deck (B1F). You’ll find the TM next to a bed in the second-to-last room on this floor. Just go all the way to the leftmost wall, then go one room over and you’ll find the TM.
But before you’re able to board the S.S. Anne, you’ll need to speak with Bill in Cerulean City to get the S.S Ticket.
For this guide we’ll assume you’ve already gotten the ticket and that you’ve already made it to Vermilion City. But if you need help with that part of the game then we do have a walkthrough to help with that.
TM44 Rest Location (Step-by-Step)
Step 1: Starting at the entrance to Vermilion City, head south.
Step 2: Veer southeast and pass in front of the Poké Mart.
Step 3: Turn to walk onto the pier, which is just south of the Poké Mart.
Step 4: Continue west across the pier and pass by the sailor.
Step 5: At the end of the pier you’ll be stopped by another sailor. He’ll ask for your S.S. Anne ticket.
Step 6: After showing your ticket, continue south and enter the ship.
Step 7: Now inside the S.S. Anne, head east across the entrance deck.
Step 8: There’s a set of stairs at the far southeast corner of the entrance desk. Climb down these stairs to reach the lower deck (B1F).
Step 9: From the bottom of the stairs, begin walking west past the room doors.
Step 10: Enter the second-to-last room at the end of the hall.
Step 11: TM44 Rest will be found in a Poké Ball on the ground next to the bed.
TM44 Rest Details + Uses
|Rest Move Details|
TM44 Rest is a Psychic-type move that fully heals the user at the expense of falling asleep for two turns. When paired with the move Sleep Talk, Rest can be very useful.
Sleep Talk allows the Pokémon to use a randomly-selected attack while asleep.
With that said, Rest doesn’t have much appeal as a competitive move. Because falling asleep for two turns can open up a huge turn advantage for your opponent. And using Sleep Talk really isn’t viable in the competitive scene either, as you’ll want the option to select your own attacks.
But for a casual playthrough of FireRed & LeafGreen?
Rest and Sleep Talk can be a fun combo to try out.
Who To Teach Rest To
Generally you could use Rest just as a healing move on any Pokémon that can learn it, but there is one other more strategic option:
Snorlax learns both moves via level-up, and has more than enough HP to dominate turn after turn with Rest. Sleep Talk has the potential to become a deadly attack thanks to Snorlax’s 110 base Attack.
Alternatively if you don’t want to really use it then you could just sell the TM for cash.
