You’ll find TM02 Dragon Claw deep inside Mt. Coronet. To reach the TM’s exact location you’ll need to have the HMs for Surf, Strength, and Rock Climb.
With those HMs you should find TM02 in a narrow corridor as an overworld item in Mt. Coronet, and this is the only copy of TM02 in the game.
Dragon Claw is a damage-inflicting, Dragon-type physical move.
TM02 Dragon Claw Location (Step-by-Step)
The path to TM02 can be arduous and time-consuming, so make sure to bring healing items and Escape Ropes just in case.
You will also need Pokémon that can use these HMs:
- Rock Climb
The entrance to Mt. Coronet that you want to use is northeast of Oreburgh City, so Fly to the Oreburgh Pokémon Center and head north along the main road.
Take the stairs at the northern entrance to leave the city for Route 207.
Keep moving up, then turn to go down the small staircase leading to a pit, where there’s a muddy slope in the middle of the north wall.
Head down and face the muddy slope, then get onto your Bicycle. Make sure it’s in fourth gear (the faster one), and position yourself against the south wall of this little pit.
Then charge the muddy slope with as much momentum as you can generate to make it up to the other side.
Once you’re up, take an immediate right into the canyon by the honey tree.
Travel all the way to the east until you come to Mt. Coronet’s entrance, and head inside.
In Mt. Coronet, use Surf to cross over the small pond directly above you.
On the other side of the pond, walk over to the rocky wall and use Rock Climb to scale it. You can ignore the ledge to the south.
Once you’ve used Rock Climb, head up the staircase.
In the next area, go north and take the left turn, ignoring the staircase.
Turn south when you’re able to, and then use Strength on the boulder in your path to push it southward.
Push the boulder until you can turn left, then make your left turn and head up the staircase.
From here you’ll travel north going up along the elevated terrain.
Cross the bridge going west at the end of this path.
Then descend the staircase on the other side, pass under the bridge you just crossed, and then climb the two staircases you’ll see immediately to the north.
Now immediately cross the bridge going east, and then descend the two staircases on the other side.
You’ll then pass under the same bridge you just crossed & you’ll climb the set of stairs in the northwest corner of this area.
Exit the area through the hole behind the cave painting that Team Galactic broke.
In this next chamber, ascend the two staircases.
Now in this next room, ignore the descending stairs to the right, and instead climb the set of stairs to the north.
Keep moving north and then turn left when you can.
Then you’ll need to turn southward, and then travel down the hallway and exit the cave.
Outside, there are two paths you can take, but they both lead to the same place.
The path up the stairs doesn’t have any tall grass, so take that if you would rather avoid wild Pokémon.
Turn north when you’re able to, and follow the path all the way up.
Eventually you’ll hit a rocky wall.
Use Rock Climb on the rocky wall at the end of the path.
There’s another rocky part of the wall above this one, but ignore it.
Instead, take a left and then climb the first staircase you see (this leads to a small landing with some more grass).
Move down through the tall grass, then circle back around moving up to enter the next cave entrance.
Inside the cave, use Rock Climb on the next rocky wall directly in front of you.
Move around the breakable rocks and head northeast.
Go eastward until you see a staircase to the south, then take those stairs and head east.
Keep moving east and go through the exit at the end of this pathway.
Outside, take the long staircase down to the lower level, and enter the cave entrance you’ll see directly beside the staircase.
Now back inside the cave, use Rock Climb on the rocky wall just a few steps from where you’re standing (this will bring you down to the lower level).
Go all the way east and then turn north when you can, ignoring the set of stairs.
Keep going up and then turn left at the corner.
At the end of the path here, turn south and go down both staircases, continuing south on the lower level.
When you reach the end of this pathway, use Rock Climb to slide down the wall.
Then circle around to descend the small staircase taking you northward.
Enter the opening at the end of the hall.
In this new area, directly to your left, is a Poké Ball item on the ground containing TM02 Dragon Claw.
This is the only copy of TM02 Dragon Claw in the game, so be cautious not to waste it on the wrong Pokémon.
