TM33 Reflect can be bought for 10,000 Pokédollars on the fourth floor of the Lilycove Department Store. Both clerks on the department store’s fourth floor also sell other TMs.
This means you can get unlimited copies of TM33 in Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.
When you use Reflect in battle, your entire team will take less damage from Physical moves for five turns. With Reflect mitigating the damage you take, you’ll be able to set up and sweep more easily against Physical threats.

Reflect is a Psychic-type status move that halves all incoming damage from Physical moves for five turns after being used. Reflect is applied to any Pokémon on your team for the duration of the move, even if you switch out to another Pokémon.
One other move that’s always used with Reflect is Light Screen. It’s basically Reflect for Special moves. Commonly referred to as Dual Screening, using both moves can easily make any glass cannon into a bulky Pokémon.
Effective Pokémon to set up Dual Screens are Pokémon with the Prankster ability, which gives +1 move priority when using status moves, like Reflect and Light Screen.
Most moves have a priority value of 0, meaning all moves with +1 priority or higher will always go first, regardless of each Pokémon’s speed.
In competitive battles, Meowstic (Male) and Klefki are almost exclusively used for Dual Screening.
Reflect is one of the best support moves in the game. Even without using it alongside Light Screen, its effect alone completely shuts down any Physical sweeper threatening your team.
However, you need to watch out for opponents with the moves Brick Break or Defog, as they instantly lift the effects of both Light Screen and Reflect.
Tip: When a Pokémon holding Light Clay uses Light Screen or Reflect, the effects of those moves last eight turns instead of five turns.
