Would you rather?  
Surely a divisive question: would you rather keep a party of six pokemon throughout an adventure and teach them all the HMs, keeping their friendship up that way; or would you rather HM slave a Zigzagoon and have to keep swapping in out of the PC? What would you do?

(I make do without Fly and enjoy the scenery and the quicker moves instead :) )

I prefer spreading the HMs out across my party, because constantly having to switch out HM slaves on the PC is a huge pain in the back.

The only exception are HM moves that I'd never use in battle, like Flash.

Since I don't play competitvely, Fly is perfectly fine to use in-battle, so I always have it. Same for Surf.

Otherwise I use an HM slave.

That's what I do to ONLYARIE; but I like Flash actually. I feel really sneaky when I use my double-team, flash, smokescreen combos when there's not a hope in hell of coming out alive otherwise. It's a good strategy though. I finished the Sinnoh league that way with my slippery Magmar and I was almost 20 levels weaker!
It's just the two-turn thing for Fly ARATH03. I don't think I could ever come close to matching some of the online players out there - I would only ever use Pokes I've trained for a start and I'll never amass dozens of level 100s that way, like they do.
