TM94 Rock Smash is given to you by a woman waiting outside the aquarium in Ambrette Town. You can access Ambrette Town by traveling south on Route 8.
The move can be used outside of battle to break open cracked boulders in order to access secret areas, encounter Wild Pokémon, find fossils, and other items. It can also be used to knock down cracked walls in the Lost Hotel.
TM94 Rock Smash Location
Step 1: Enter Ambrette Town from Route 8 via the stairs heading west.
Note: The first time you approach Ambrette Town from Route 8 you will trigger a cutscene in which you are told to go to the Fossil Lab, but you do not have to do that right away.
Step 2: Continue west, past the Pokémon Center to the Ambrette Aquarium (the large white and blue building). You will see a woman standing near the entrance.
Step 3: Talk to the woman NPC and she will immediately give you TM94 Rock Smash.
How To Use TM94 Rock Smash
|Rock Smash Move Details|
In order to use TM94 Rock Smash, you will need to teach it to a Pokémon in your party.
You can then approach cracked boulders and cracked walls and break them open using Rock Smash. Cracked boulders are the only kind of rock that can be broken using this move.
Tip: In Pokémon X & Y, Rock Smash is a TM. This means that the move can be forgotten if you want to replace it with something else. The TM can also be used as many times as you like.
To use it out of battle, just approach a cracked boulder and interact with it (make sure there’s a Pokémon in your party that knows the move).
You will be given the option to break the boulder open, select ‘Yes’.
Breaking open a cracked boulder will result in either a Wild Pokémon encounter, finding an item, or receiving a fossil. However, there is also a chance that nothing will happen when the rock is destroyed.
Tip: Cracked boulders will respawn when you exit and return to an area.
