How to Get Surf in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee are full-on HD remakes of the original Game Boy titles. However, not everything is as you remember it, and there have been a few changes introduced with the Switch games. Here is everything you need to know about getting Surf in Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.
In Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, Hidden Machines (HM’s) have been taken out of the game to make getting around Kanto a bit easier. In older Pokemon games, HM’s would have been taught to a Pokemon in your team as a move, taking up space in their arsenal of moves.
This time around, HM’s are gone and have been replaced with Secret Techniques. There are five Secret Techniques in total and the one that replaces Surf is called Sea Skim. The other Secret Techniques are as follows: Chop Down, Sky Dash, Strong Push, and Light Up, which act as replacements for Cut, Fly, Strength, and Flash, respectively.
There are large bodies of water, lakes, and oceans to get across throughout the Kanto region and in order to traverse them, you’re going to need to receive the Sea Skim technique.
Once you progress to Fuchsia City, you’ll meet a man with a surfboard and a Lapras who will then teach Surf Skim to your partner Pokemon. Unlike Hidden Machines, you won’t have to use up of your attack spaces, as Surf Skim isn’t an attack used during battle, but is only used for getting across the water.
And that’s all you need to know about how to get Surf in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.
