What's the Difference Between TM and TR Moves?

If you're unfamiliar with both TM and TR moves in Pokemon games, then allow us to explain. TM moves are a staple of Pokemon games, and they allow you to teach one particular combat move to any applicable Pokemon. For example, only Fire-type Pokemon can learn Fire-type moves from TMs.

TR items work exactly the same as TM moves, but you can only use them once. Whereas for example you can use TM40 to teach Swift to as many Pokemon as you want, you can only use TR92 once to teach Dazzling Gleam to a Pokemon. If you want to teach Dazzling Gleam to multiple Pokemon, you'll need to find multiple TR92 items.
