Move Tutors

Like all previous Pokémon games, there are various people dotted around the Hoenn region who will teach your Pokémon a variety of moves, all for free. This page is to detail each one, as well as what they teach

Move Reminder

Location: Fallarbor Town

The Move Reminder is arguably the most important Move Tutor in the game. This guy, located in the house in the north-west of Fallarbor Town, will teach your Pokémon any move that is in its level up move list. In addition to that, if the Pokémon hatched from an Egg with an egg move, was caught with an Egg move using the DexNav, or is an event Pokémon with specific moves exclusive to that event, the Pokémon will be able to relearn that move if it has forgotten it. The Move Reminder does this for the simple price of 1 Heart Scale.

Move Deleter

Location: Lilycove City

The Move Deleter is located within the top part of Lilycove City and will gladly delete a move for you. Normally, all moves can be overwritten, but this is incredibly useful if you're trying to delete an HM from a Pokémon, which is common in Hoenn due to there being more HMs in this region.

Fire Pledge, Water Pledge, Grass Pledge
