No slot machines in hg/ss :( i forget if you could buy coins in that, but i think thunderbolt/flamethrower/ice beam were locked behind that but I went with Megas because they are badly designed. Hell, Magmar and Electabuzz evolutions are so bad. Scyther got a cool evolution, what happened?
I chose Hm, I get the reason behind them, but the thing that I hate about them is that you couldn't deleted the move from the pokemon unless we get the "Move Deleter" (who is most of the time on the other side of the region where we havent encounter him yet), to do so, IMO, that was a stupid idea, especially what the points of that, it not like the HM will disappears after you use the item, it stay in your box forever, so we should have the option to deleted the move on our own without some random guy help.
To me, the only good TM was Surf and Waterfall, the rest suck.
