You can obtain TM58 Sky Drop by talking to a female NPC inside Mauville City’s Poké Mart. She will be standing at the right side of the Poké Mart, and she will ask you if you like roller coasters. If you answer yes then she’ll give you the TM for Sky Drop.
Mauville City is located north of Route 110, and you can pick up this TM as soon as you can access the city.
TM58 Sky Drop Location (Step-by-Step)
Since the TM will be given to you by an NPC inside the Mauville City Poké Mart, the only prerequisite is that you’ll need access to the city.
To get there, first make sure you’ve:
- Obtained the second Gym Badge from Brawly, Dewford Town’s Gym Leader
- Dealt with Team Aqua/Magma in Slateport City
- Fought your Rival in Route 110
If that’s all set, then let’s cover how to reach the correct NPC to get your copy of TM58.
Step 1: Enter Mauville City’s south entrance going up from Route 110.
Step 2: Head north to go outside to Square Tower.
Step 3: Enter the Poké Mart up ahead, directly due east of the Pokémon Center.
Step 4: Talk to the Delinquent in the corner (blonde-haired female NPC) and she will give you the TM for Sky Drop.
TM58 Sky Drop Details + Uses
|Sky Drop Move Details|
|PP||10 (max. 16)|
Sky Drop is a Physical Flying-type move that takes two turns to execute.
On the turn you select the move, the user flies with the target, where the target can’t use a move. While in this state, both Pokémon can’t be targeted for an attack, except for the following moves:
- Sky Uppercut
- Smack Down
- Thousand Arrows
The user drops the target on the following turn, damaging the opposing Pokémon. If the target is a Flying-type or is under the effects of Levitate, Magnet Rise, or Telekinesis, it will deal no damage. However, they are still brought up in the air on the turn Sky Drop is used.
Additionally, Sky Drop cannot be used when Gravity is in effect.
The move will also fail when attempting to use Sky Drop on Pokémon weighing 440.9 lbs / 200 kg.
Like a lot of two-turn moves, Sky Drop isn’t used at all in competitive battles.
The move’s effect and base power just aren’t good enough to use.
It is, however, more usable in Double or Triple battles. You can use Sky Drop’s effect to temporarily remove one other Pokémon in the field for one turn, possibly making it easier to deal with its teammate.
