|TM15 Hyper Beam
|Celadon City Prize Corner. Available for 5,500 coins at the window on the right.
TM15 Hyper Beam is one of the prizes you can get at the Celadon City Prize Corner. It will be given to you in exchange for 5500 coins.
You can buy or win the coins at the Celadon City Game Corner, which is just left of the Prize Corner.
But before you can buy or win coins, you’ll first need to get a Coin Case. You can get a Coin Case from a man in the restaurant building just below the Game Corner.
This is what you need to do before you can get TM15:
- Get the Coin Case from the guy sitting in the corner of the restaurant building located just below the Game Corner
- Have at least 5500 coins in your Coin Case
Getting TM15 Hyper Beam
Starting from the Celadon City Pokémon Center, head southwest until you reach a small building just above where the path splits.
Enter the Celadon City Prize Corner.
Once you’re inside, walk towards the window on the right.
Select TM15 from the prize list. TM15 will cost you 5500 coins.
Hyper Beam Details + Uses
|Hyper Beam Move Details
|5 (max. 8)
|If the move successfully hits an opposing Pokémon, and the opposing Pokémon doesn’t faint, the user must recharge in the following turn.
With 150 power, Hyper Beam is one of the strongest moves in the game. In many cases, Hyper Beam can result in one hit KO’s.
However, the move’s biggest weakness is that the user has to “recharge” the turn after using it.
This means the user can’t attack or switch out during the turn that they “recharge.”
But if Hyper Beam makes the opposing Pokémon faint, then the user doesn’t have to recharge in the following turn.
Considering Hyper Beam’s massive power, and if the move is used by a Pokémon with a high attack stat, then it’s more than likely that Hyper Beam will knock out the opposing Pokémon.
Though it can be risky, Hyper Beam makes for a great finishing move.
