Obviously all of the HMs are usable outside of battle, but there are also moves such as Teleport, Flash, and Sweet Scent which are usable outside of battle as well.

What are all of these moves, and what effect do they have in the field?

I went here and checked out all the move descriptions that had the word "also" in it. As Ben Brocka said, I don't think there are any new ones, but here:

Format: Name | Type | Category | Base Power | Accuracy | PP | Description

  • Rock Smash | Fighting | Physical | 40 | 100 | 15 | The user attacks with a punch. This may also lower the target's Defense stat. This move can also shatter rocks in the field.
  • Dig | Ground | Physical | 80 | 100 | 10 | The user burrows, then attacks on the next turn. It can also be used to exit dungeons.
  • Milk Drink | Normal | Status | -- | -- | 10 | The user restores its own HP by up to half of its max HP. May also be used in the field to heal HP.
  • Soft-Boiled | Normal | Status | -- | -- | 10 | The user restores its own HP by up to half of its max HP. May also be used in the field to heal HP.
  • Sweet Scent | Normal | Other | -- | 100 | 20 | A sweet scent that harshly lowers opposing Pokémon's evasiveness. This also lures wild Pokémon if used in places such as tall grass.
  • Teleport | Psychic | Status | - | - | 20 | Use it to flee from any wild Pokemon. It can also warp to the last Pokemon Center visited.
  • Flash | Normal | Status | -- | 100 | 20 | The user flashes a bright light that cuts the target's accuracy.

I realize flash doesn't have that "also" word, but it seems to lower encounter rate in caves, according to the hiker who gives it to you. Chatter doesn't appear to be a field move anymore.


Fly is given by Professor Sycamore in Coumarine City and can be used outside of battle after beating Coumarine City Gym

  • This does answer the question, though not with as much detail as the accepted answer. More importantly,fly is an essential field move, and is not listed in the other answer.
