Move tutors

(Redirected from Move tutor)

Move tutors, or tutors, are NPCs that impart move techniques to Pokémon. They allow Pokémon to learn moves that might otherwise be unavailable, or learn said moves before the Pokémon reaches the required level. Since move tutors are in various locations throughout the game, one will need access to the area that they are stationed in.

TM-tutors

TM tutors are a special subtype of move tutors that provide another avenue for learning TMs for those that do not yet have their TM items programmed in. While TM tutors are functionally identical to conventional move tutors, they are different in the Pokémon move pools that they teach.

While TM-tutors do enable Pokémon to learn missing TMs, they lack the portability of conventional TM items and are only considered a workaround for the lack of those items. As such, they are only expected to exist until the items themselves are in the game.

Move Relearners

Move Relearners will teach any move within the Pokémon’s level-up move pool that the Pokémon has satisfied the level requirement for. This means that the Pokémon must have already reached the level requirement for the move, in order to relearn it. This is the principal means of restoring lost or forgotten moves. Pre-evolution and post-evolution moves will not be relearnable via the Move Relearners.

Move Relearners will charge 2,000 per transaction, and two are stationed per region. They are available in the following areas:

  • KantoCerulean City; Saffron City; Tutor Heaven
  • JohtoGoldenrod City; Blackthorn City
  • HoennSlateport City marketplace; Sootopolis City
  • SinnohSnowpoint City and Hearthome City

Move Inheritors

Homologous to Move Buffets, Move Inheritors—known more colloquially as pre-evolution move-tutors—move-inheritors can also recover lost moves; where they are dichotomized is that move-inheritors will allow evolved forms to relearn moves of their pre-evolutions, thereby affording move-learning continuity for moves exclusive to the pre-evolution that may have been forgotten or never learned—most common for stone-evolved Pokémon, which tend to be irretentive of most of their pre-evolution’s moves.

Move Inheritors are stationed in all of the daycare centers available, and they will charge 10,000 per move.

Egg-inheritable moves

Main article: Egg-Inheritable Moves

A move-tutor exists that amalgamates all egg-inherited moves in the handheld games. These move-tutors are stationed in every daycare center and Tutor Heaven. Access to them entails defeating Naero‘s boss NPC.

No parent combinations are needed in order for the Pokémon to learn the Egg Move. The Pokémon will have unrestricted access to every Egg Move it would have in the handheld games, and an identical move pool will carry over to its evolutions. It will cost 15,000 per transaction.

Legendary Events tutor

Researcher Allen, accessible upon completion of the Legendary Events Move quest, can teach extragenerational moves to Legendary Pokémon that do not otherwise have them in their learnsets (limited to one Generation, currently VII). He can be found in the Ruins of Alph Research Center, and he’ll charge 20,000 for each move.
