With the release of the first new event-exclusive move of the Throwback Event seeing its release in the form of Ho-Oh with Earthquake, players have discovered a troubling issue: existing Ho-oh cannot learn Earthquake via Elite TM.

However, we here at Gamepress have reached out to Niantic in regards to this, and have received exclusive word from a Niantic representative that Earthquake will be added to Ho-oh's Elite TM Movepool in the near future.

This news can allow many of us to release a sigh of relief, as it sets a precedent for the remaining exclusive moves of this event, and re-assures the value of the newly released Elite TMs and their future effectiveness.
