The Surf TM of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is compatible with Water-type Pokemon. It allows users to attack everything around them with a giant wave. After you’ve acquired the disc, you can craft more of it at the Pokemon Center from the TMs. Here are the required items to make additional Surf abilities:

  • 10,000 LP
  • 5 Finneon Scales
  • 3 Finizen Mucus
  • 3 Wiglett Sand

If players want to see this attack in action, they must go to their Bag in the Main Menu and equip the TM with a Water-type Pokemon. You can also level up particular creatures, like SlowPoke and Eiscue, who already have the Surf ability in their move set.
