TM02 Dragon Claw is located on the ground deep inside Meteor Falls, which is a large cave west of Fallarbor Town. You need to have Surf and Waterfall to access the room containing the TM.
And since the HM for Waterfall is obtained by defeating the 8th Gym Leader, you won’t be able to explore the upper levels of the cave when you first arrive in Meteor Falls.
TM02 Dragon Claw is a physical dragon-type move with a base power of 80 and a perfect accuracy of 100. Despite having no additional effect, it’s still a reliable move that can be learned by many Pokémon.
TM02 Location (Step-by-Step)
Before revisiting Meteor Falls to get your hands on the TM, make sure that you:
- Defeat Wallace, the 8th Gym Leader, to get HM05 Waterfall and the ability to use it outside of combat
- Bring a Pokémon that knows both Surf and Waterfall
Tip: To escape immediately after exploring Meteor Falls, you can bring a Pokémon with Dig or an Escape Rope.
Once you’ve done that, use Fly and head to Meteor Falls.
And then here’s a step-by-step guide on how to find the TM:
Step 1: Enter the cave and immediately head left.
Step 2: Go down the stairs and use Surf on the body of water near the waterfalls.
Step 3: Use Waterfall to climb up the large waterfall on the north side of the cave.
Step 4: Head north and go through the cave entrance in the north wall.
Step 5: Turn right, then climb down the ladder.
Step 6: Follow the path to the left, then start heading north past the Dragon Tamer.
Step 7: Climb up the ladder at the end of the path.
Step 8: Go up the stairs, then head down seven ledges.
Step 9: Before the eighth ledge, follow the path on the left. Then, climb down the ladder.
Step 10: Go down the stairs and Surf directly north.
Step 11: Disembark here, and go through the cave entrance.
Step 12: Surf north one last time; TM02 Dragon Claw should be at the end of the cave.
Dragon Claw Move Details
|Dragon Claw Move Details|
With a base power of 80 and an accuracy of 100, Dragon Claw remains one of the most commonly used Dragon-type moves. It’s a solid move that can be learned by both Dragon and non-Dragon-type Pokémon.
Dragon Claw also doesn’t have the downsides of other physical Dragon-type moves.
For example, unlike Dragon Rush, it has perfect accuracy. And unlike Outrage, it doesn’t have any negative secondary effects.
It does, however, have less power than both of those moves.
Tip: Since Dragon-type Pokémon are weak against Dragon-type moves themselves, you can let a non-Dragon-type Pokémon learn Dragon Claw to provide it some good coverage against common threats like Garchomp or Salamence.
