In the spin-off games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

TMs in the Mystery Dungeon series are named only by the move they teach. For example, MDBag TM RTRB Sprite.pngAttract is the item that teaches the move Attract. Most TMs, however, correspond to a TM in the core series' contemporaneous games.

TMs in Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky can only be used once before becoming Used TMs. In Gates to Infinity, TMs can be used any number of times. In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, some TMs can only be used once while rainbow-colored TMs can be used any number of times.

In Rescue Team DX, TMs can only be used once. Whilst the available TMs are the same as those in Pokémon Sun and Moon, the TM list order is the same as for Super Mystery Dungeon (that is, in the TM order for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), with newly added TMs added to the end of the list.
