Didn't really know where to ask this but general gameplay makes sense. Is there anywhere that's compiling a list of version differences besides exclusive pokemon?
Would really like to find this out without venturing too far into spoiler country so that I can decide on a version :P
Does anybody have a preliminary tm/hm list?
3DS friend code: 0731-5298-4381
I suspect a lot of Gen V TMs return, given how relatively few new moves we've seen
TM01 Hone Claws
TM39 Rock Tomb
TM47 Low Sweep
TM54 False Swipe
TM57 Charge Beam
TM65 Shadow Claw
TM69 Rock Polish
TM84 Poison Jab
TM86 Grass Knot
TM88 Sleep Talk
TM94 Rock Smash
TM96 Nature Power
TM98 Power-Up Punch
TM99 Dazzling Gleam
Worth noting that TMs and HMs show up as a yellow pokeball in the overworld now rather than a red one like other items, making them a lot easier to spot.
And there's some that can be purchased from pokemon centres that I haven't got yet, will edit once I have them
EDIT: Yep, Dig, Poison jab, Safeguard, Hail & Sandstorm can be purchased in the pokemon centre in shalour city. Had enough money to buy all but sandstorm, and can't see the number from the shop screen...

Don't think it's been mentioned on here yet but Floette learns the new move Grassy Terrain at Level 27 which turns the field to grass for 5 turns, healing all Pokémon that aren't Levitating/Flying by 1/16 of the full HP (like Leftovers). It also turns Nature Power into Energy Ball, overriding what the terrain was normally.
Also, I can add to that TM list with my own ones:

wow, that... sucks
I wonder the secret is
I am capable of manipulating matter on a subatomic level by speaking. A mere flick of my finger is sufficient to alter the gravitational pull of the planet. I shelve physics texts under "fiction" in my personal library. I consider the Laws of Thermodynamics loose guidelines, at best. In short, I am grasping the reins of the universe's carriage, and every morning I wake up, look the heavens and shout "Giddy up, boy!" You may never grasp the complexities of what I do, but at least have the common courtesy to feign something other than slack-jawed oblivion in my presence. I, sir, am a wizard, and I break more natural laws before breakfast than of which you are even aware.

And I just found TM79 in frost cavern too
Ice puzzles are a pain when you realize they now have diagonal aspects to them now too
EDIT: derp, forgot to mention that it's Frost Breath

Not sure if it's been mentioned but Mud Sport and Water Sport last for like 5 Turns. BUT! Unlike before, even when you switch out, it stays in effect.
Riolu is a rare encounter in Route 22! <3

Are TM's reusable like Gen 5?
Top five favorite pokemon from each generation:
Normal Type Gym trainer
3DS Friend Code: 0688-5789-0631
Friend Safari Type: Poison; Seviper, Venomoth, and Toxicroak.
Roost is back as a TM! It's TM19, found in Route 8 by Surfing.
So no word on any decent new Ghost or Dark type attacks so far?
Ghost only gets the mediocre Phantom Force, which is just a retyped Dig, and I haven't heard anything about new moves for Dark period.
