Pokemon X and Y is just around the corner, and one thing that has received very little attention is the function of HMs in the upcoming 3DS release.

Even now, the use of HMs has not been shown in any official capacity in Pokemon X and Y videos, but the latest Pokemon X and Y eShop trailer may have a teaser to the future of HMs.

In the Japanese Pokemon X and Y trailer below, we get an overview of all the big updates and functions of the games, which include riding Pokemon.

It has long been known that Rhyhorn will be one of the available Pokemon to ride on in X and Y. But the trailer also shows that Rhyhorn will have the capability to smash rocks that are in the player's path.


As Pokemon fans know, this move is similar to the function of Rock Smash, which has been an HM in most of the generations in addition to other Hidden Machines like Fly, Surf, and Strength.

Is this trailer foreshadowing that HMs will still be in use in Pokemon X and Y?

So far, all that has been discussed regarding HMs in X and Y is that they will be dramatically reduced, but we have no confirmation as to how many HMs still exist, nor how much of an impact they will have on gameplay.

And should HMs be reduced and cut away altogether, fans seems perfectly satisfied with the move.

"I like what they did with with HMs for gen V. I say keep it the same and do not make them mandatory to progress the story," says Neoseeker visitor Mudkip94.

"I would love to see the HMs feature taken out, it'd be so much easier. They could be used as Field Moves, such as Sweet Scent or something. That'd be so much easier and less frustrating!" says Kurbrick.
