    That Onix you receive for Bellsprout in the beginning of SS (Violet City, name is Rocky, I believe) works wonders as an HM slave. Strength, Rock Smash, and Rock Climb. Surf is given as an attack move to my water type, Waterfall given to my Red Gyarados, Flash and Cut to Bellsprout, and Whirlpool to some useless generic water type I can catch.

    Surf isn't much of a problem for me, as I specialize in special moves (I hate the physical move affecting abilities, flame body, poison point, aftermath e.t.c.) and I like water starters, swampert being my favourite. I use Radicate and Bibarel, as they accomodate all the Hm's

    I can confirm his name is Rocky. He's currently a Steelix in my party on SS. I may use HM slaves if I get another game, but it's unlikely.

    Sometimes, if I have a Bidoof handy.
    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, ‘If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.’

    I once used peliper for waterfall, surf and fly. I have seen empoleon used for rock climb, surf, waterfall and rock smash (or something like that.) I have used a golem for rock climb, rock smash and dig. (Yes, I know that dig isn't an hm.) Linoone is also a great HM slave, and it has pickup.

    Nowadays, all of my pokemon battle and have one or two HM's
    Uh ...

    i have a few questions about that ability, pickup - if you have 2 or more pokemon with that ability, do they all have a chance to pick up an item? and will pickup find items after any battle that generates EXP - so, including battles with cynthia, cheren, morimoto, trainers in the battle court and stadium in nimbasa, and even the elite 4 etc. as well as in the wild?

    and agreed on linoone, he's not very useful competitively but he's a cool little pokemon nonetheless, and with pickup and the ability to learn a bunch of HMs too, he makes a great in-game pokemon to have with you;

    anyway, i wanted to add a discovery i made, which isn't entirely about HMs, but it involves a pokemon that can carry a bunch of useful in-game moves, one of which used to be a HM, so it kind of counts - breloom! first the ex-HM; he can learn flash, which is virtually a HM in white and black, or perhaps should be, since i can recall at LEAST 2 caves which need flash; ok, you could probably find your way without flash, but that sentence requires the addendum 'eventually'. secondly, additionally, it can also be an excellent catcher; it learns spore, and can also learn false swipe!

    My HM slave is usually the first pokemon I capture, such as Zigzagoon or Bidoof.

    Once I reach the E4, they go away for good, unless I'm capturing legendaries.

    I do teach surf to my water Pokemon and Fly to my flying Pokemon.

    Yes. I mainly use my Lickilicky for Rock Smash, Strength, and Rock Climb. He's my right-hand HM slave

    In my first Playthrough, I didn't use a HM Slave. All my 'mons had an HM. Rock Smash in Infernape, Rock Climb in Giratina (!), Surf and Waterfall in Floatzel, Fly in Staraptor, Cut in Roserade and Strenght in Luxray.

    I don't know if the HM were in these 'mons exactly, but it's close to this.

    I use a Bibarel as a HM slave in Diamond and Pearl, and probably will in Platinum, too.

    In Diamond, it knows...
    Cut
    Surf
    Rock Smash
    Rock Climb

    In Pearl, it knows
    Cut
    Strength
    Rock Smash
    Rock Climb

    I do at the beginning of the game. Then around the third badge or so, I put it in the PC. I try to teach Pokemon on my team one HM per Pokemon.
    (I try not to give any HM's to the Starter, unless it's the Water Starter)

    I use, it is somewhat necessary. I wouldn't teach Rock Smash or Flash for one of my Pokemons that I use competitively.

    The only HM's that are good to battle are Surf and Fly.

    I always have an HM Slave at hand, I don't really want to waste my move slots on useless HM's.

    Yes. In almost every Pokemon game I play I have to use at least 1 HM slave.

    Hm...I don't actually like using HM Slaves...but I'm strange like that =3
    I do have at least 1-2 HM Slaves in my PC though, and I'll only get them out if I really need them, like using Flash, Rock Smash, Rock Climb etc.
    But otherwise, I have my party with my favourite Pokemon, because for me, HM Slaves just waste my time somehow ._." In my opinion anyway...

    I use Fly and Surf on my main Pokemon team. <.> If another Hm is needed I pick a pokemon who can learn the rest. So far I don't want to add an HM to any of my team, especially since Im so close to going at the top of Mt. Silver and I pretty much need someone with Rock Climb >.> so I still need it >:c
    Right now Steelix is the HM Slave <_>

    I usually catch the rat pokemon from the first route and use that as my HM slave.

    Yes, I use them, but only if necessary. As much as possible I fill in the six slots of my party with the Pokemon I like. Usually I teach some HMs which would fit in one of my Pokemon's movesets, (eg. Waterfall to Gyarados, Surf to Empoleon, etc.)
