Protect TM007 Location – How to get it

You can find Protect TM in Alfornada Cavern and South Province (Area One, Two, Four). Once you have this move, you will be able to teach the Protect to your Pokemon, which has the effect of: “This move enables the user to protect itself from all attacks. Its chance of failing rises if it is used in succession.” As many TMs are found in the world of Paldea, be on the lookout for Yellow Poke Balls!

Protect TM Recipe – How to make it

To craft Protect, you will need the following resources: 400 LP, 3x Lechonk Hair, and 3x Scatterbug Powder. Once you have the recipe, you’ll be able to craft the recipe at any Pokemon Center’s TM Machine as long as you have the required resources to do so.

Tip: If you need more League Points (LP), remember that you can trade in materials you won’t be using to the TM Machine in exchange for LP. You can also receive LP for interacting with Tera Raid Dens (they look like large, sparkling crystals). Sparkling Pokemon will give you LP when defeated or caught.
