How to craft TMs in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Via the Technical Machine... Machine.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet continues the tradition of allowing you to teach your favorite Pokémon some unique moves they may not otherwise be able to learn naturally via leveling up. You can do so using TMs. While the items themselves are one-use only, don't worry. You can recreate any TM that you find in the overworld or that is given to you via crafting.

Crafting TMs using the TM Machine in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

In Generation IX you are given the option to craft TMs via the TM machine. Crafting requires a moderate amount of effort, however. You will only be able to craft TMs that you have acquired naturally via exploration or gameplay progression. To craft TMs you'll need to use crafting components dropped by defeating Pokémon in traditional battle or via the new Let's Go mode. You'll also need to use a small amount of LP for each TM crafted.
