Dragon Balls

The Dragon Balls are scattered across the game. Gather and bring all seven to the Old Man in Mayko Town, and he'll summon Shenron for you to fight (and catch). You can only face Shenron ONCE though, and the Dragon Balls will be removed from your inventory afterwards, so only hand in the Dragon Balls when you're prepared to catch him!

Ape Tails (Post-Game)

There are just three (3) ape tails in the game that you can find and give to these fighters: SSJ3 Goku (evolves to SSJ4 Goku), Majin Vegeta (evolves to SSJ4 Vegeta), and SSJ Gogeta (evolves to SSJ4 Gogeta). This is the only means to unlock all three fighters, so be careful not to misuse these! The locations are as follows:

  • Pilaf Warehouse: just follow the tips for the sapphire to get to this place.
  • Lost Cave: Go right, up, down, down, right, left, down, right, up.
  • Seven Island @ Sevault Canyon: Behind some rocks. You need the HMs Rock Smash and Strength.

God Stones (Post-Game)

Like the ape tails, the god stones allow fighters to evolve into gods. This item can be used on the following fighters: SSJ3 Goku (evolves into SSG Goku), Majin Vegeta (evolves into SSG Vegeta), Ultimate Gohan (evolves into SSG Gohan), and SSJ Vegeto (evolves into SSB Vegeto). Out of all four, the only Saiyan God that can be caught is the one respective to your starter (eg. if you start with Vegeta, you can encounter SSG Vegeta). The prerequisites to encountering a Saiyan God are (i) to beat the Dragon League and (ii) to give Celio the ruby and sapphire. The locations of the stones are:

  • Capture/beat both Zamasu and Black on Navel Rock, and talk to Gowasu again to get one as a gift.
  • Whis holds a god stone. Capture him and take it from him.
  • Beerus holds a god stone. Capture him and take it from him.
  • Lost Cave on five island. Surf to the right of Resort Gorgeous and go down the ladder then right, up, down, up.

TM/HM Case

Along your journey, you'll come along items known as TMs (Technical Machines) and HMs (Hidden Machines). Put simply, these items are used to teach moves to your fighters, as opposed to having them learn a small number of moves via levelling up. Not all fighters can learn all moves, however. Below, you'll find the details for each type. For details on the moves originally from Pokemon: Fire Red, visit PsyPokes' guide to TMs/HMs.

To see the TMs and HMs each fighter can learn, visit the TMs and HMs page.


There are 31 TMs in total. Each TM can be used once to teach a fighter a move, and then disappears from the TM case in your inventory. TM moves are only used in battle and, just like regular fighter moves, can be replaced anytime by another TM move, a new fighter move learned via level up, or an HM move. Some TMs can be bought, and others are obtained through defeating gym leaders, some NPC encounters, or are found on the ground.

TM-only move

Used to be Facade until Version 4


There are 7 HMs in DBZ Team Training. Unlike TMs, HMs can be used an unlimited number of times. They cannot be bought, as they are only obtained once and then forever retained in your inventory. As well, they can be used out of battle to unlock new pathways, and thus are necessary to complete the game. The number of fighters who can learn HM moves is usually small. The only way to forget an HM move is through the Move Deleter, who you encounter near the end of the game (post-game segment aside). Thus, it is highly recommended to spend HMs on "dummy" fighters who you carry in your party solely for the HMs.

NOTE: In Version 5, Surf is removed as an HM and is replaced with the item Shell Bell (given by the same person), which now allows you to travel across water on Roshi's turtle. Thus, you don't need to teach Surf to an Aqua anymore to cross water.
