    Normally, l dont. I think it would be smart, but its also a bit of a waste of a spot in a party, maybe next game if they make it for DS l will use one, but so far, not really have l.

    Well, I don't really like using HM slaves, but I sometimes use them if I need them. In Platinum, I often used a Bibarel for Rock Climbing and Surfing, but in HeartGold, I put two Water-types on my team (Poliwrath and Lanturn) so that I wouldn't need an HM slave.
    100% of information in signatures on this forum involving percentages is false. If you feel as cheated by this atrocity as I do, don't you dare copy this into your signature.
    Hold on... if this percentage was correct at the time of print, that means the actual percentage of false information is less than 100% if this signature is included. Which means that... no! I've become a slave to the system!!

    I do, I just can't stand to use up a perfectly good move slot for an HM on one of my team members.

    I figure I might as well teach it to a Pokemon that I'm not gonna really use.

    Yeah. Without an HM slave, my team would be filled with stupid HM's.

    Yes, I nearly always use a HM slave. In D/P/PT I would always use Bibarel, and name it something like "Bieberfevr" or "Toothfairy" for a laugh.

    I don't really like to use HM Slaves, I like to make meaning out of every Pokemon I catch. I'll occasionally sacrifice a move slot for something like Strength or Cut, but once I get to the Move Deleter, I'll just remove it. I have no problem with Surf or Fly, seeing as they are somewhat decent moves, or at least I think they are!

    Yeah, HM slaves are always useful. =3 In gen 4, it was always Bibarel.

    I always use an HM slave, in HG's case Furret, with Surf, Cut, Strength, and Waterfall. I never train it that well, so it's Lv. 30 when the rest of my team is 48. I carried around a Hoothoot until I taught Fly to Ho-Oh. I had Gyarados know Surf, but I needed to make room. Unfortunately, my Magmar is stuck with Rock Smash.
    Due to my very annoyingly long name, I will accept anything along the likes of pokemonmaster, pokemaster, pokemaster30, P3.0, 3.0, etc.

    Yes, I use HM slaves. 2 HM slaves and 4 strong, EV-trained Pokemon are good for ingame. I try to have 2 HM slaves, that know all HMs together. The only HM they don't have to know are Surf and Waterfall, because I use both Surf and Waterfall a lot on my competitive/EV-trained Pokemon. I don't like teaching my "strong" Pokemon bad HM moves like Cut and Whirlpool.

    I simply refer to use them on a singal pokemon with the ability to use all the HM's, or at least a fare amount of them.

    I hate using HM slaves, I just deal with using my normal party pokemon.

    Generally, no. I used to. Now I feel it's a waste, because I could just have six team members that know the HMs and can delete them pre-E4. Having HM Slaves is just cruel. ._.

    I used a Bibarel as one & a water type with my regular team (since surf + waterfall aren't bad) and Fly w/ a bird one, I just swapped out the bibarel for gyms & stuff.

    Agreed! At first I thought hey why not but then I learned that if you teach the right HM to the right team member they can come in handy. I don't mind one bit.

    I do, however I use them for catching lower-leveled Pokemon. My Tentacruel was crucial in the capture of suicune on HG, and on Black today I used my Kingler to catch a Mawile.

    I always prefer to distribute the HM moves among my adventure team Pokémon, and use slaves only in the post-game to fly or dive to training places.
