|TM45 Thunder Wave|
|1||At the top of Route 24 above Cerulean City.||No|
You’ll find TM45 at the top of Route 24, which is just north of Cerulean City. It’s sitting on the ground near a trainer who gives you a free Charmander.
You can get TM45 at any point after you reach Cerulean City.
Getting TM45 Thunder Wave
Starting from the Cerulean City Pokémon Center, head west until you reach the fence of cylinders.
Once you’ve reached the cylinders, head northeast until you’ve passed two long houses and are above the Pokémon Center.
Once you’ve passed the two houses, head north onto the Nugget Bridge on Route 24.
Head north across the Nugget Bridge until you reach the top of Route 24. If this is your first time here, you’ll have to defeat all the trainers on the bridge to progress.
There are 5 trainers on the bridge and 1 at the end, making it 6 trainers you have to defeat.
At the top of the route, you’ll find a Poké ball on the ground next to a trainer. This Poké ball contains TM45 Thunder Wave.
Thunder Wave Move Details
|PP||20 (max. 32)|
|Effect||Paralyzes the opposing Pokémon.|
Thunder Wave simply paralyzes the opposing Pokémon.
Each turn, paralyzed Pokémon have a 25% chance of being unable to attack. A paralyzed Pokémon’s speed is also decreased by 75%.
This combination makes it a very annoying status condition to deal with, but also very a useful one to inflict onto an opponent.
Thunder Wave can really slow down and impair an opposing Pokémon. And paralysis also helps with catching Pokémon as well.
