You can find TM32 Double Team near a ledge on Route 113, which is the dust-covered route connecting Route 111 on the right and Fallarbor Town on the left.
We’ll cover the exact location in our step-by-step guide below.
Double Team is a move that raises the user’s Evasion, giving you a chance to dodge your opponent’s moves. Stacking the Evasion boost Double Team gives you is a viable strategy in specific stall teams. However, well-prepared teams can easily counter this tactic.
TM32 Double Team Location (Step-by-Step)
Route 113 is a route that’s covered with volcanic ash, located between Route 111 and Fallarbor Town.
Route 113 can only be accessed when you’ve used HM06 Rock Smash on Route 111 to pass through the breakable rocks blocking your path. To be able to do this, you first need to obtain the Dynamo Badge from Wattson, Mauville City’s Gym Leader.
If you’ve already done that, then head to Route 113’s east entrance, which is right next to Route 111. Then here’s the steps to follow for the Double Team TM:
Step 1: Start by following the path on the left.
Step 2: Head up the stairs and continue to head left.
Step 3: The TM should be visible from here, but you need to go around the ledge to get it.
Step 4: So keep moving left until you see a set of stairs leading up to the ledge. Climb up the stairs and pick up TM32 Double Team.
Double Team Details + Uses

|PP||15 (max. 24)|
Double Team is a Normal-type Status move that raises the user’s Evasion by one stage.
Like any other main stat, a Pokemon’s Evasion can be raised up to six times. Here’s how much each stage modifies the opposing Pokemon’s chance of landing a move based on your Evasion stage:
|0||Opponent’s Accuracy x 1|
|1||Opponent’s Accuracy x 0.75|
|2||Opponent’s Accuracy x 0.60|
|3||Opponent’s Accuracy x 0.50|
|4||Opponent’s Accuracy x 0.428|
|5||Opponent’s Accuracy x 0.375|
|6||Opponent’s Accuracy x 0.33|
A popular strategy to employ with Double Team is using it with Toxic. If you raise your Evasion high enough where most moves against you miss, you can stall the fight and let Toxic knock out your opponent.
However, even if you raise a Pokémon’s Evasion to its maximum stage, many moves still ignore Accuracy checks. Moves that don’t miss, like Aura Sphere and Shock Wave, can completely counter the Toxic + Double Team strategy.
Moves like Defog, Haze, Lock-On, Perish Song, Roar, or Whirlwind can also counter Double Team strategies in one way or another. The ability No Guard counters Evasion-stacking as well.
