Move Tutors

Like all previous Pokémon games, there are various people dotted around the Alola 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: Mount Lanakila

Details:
The Move Reminder is possibly one of the most important Move Tutors in the game. Located in Mount Lanakila's Pokémon Center on Ula'ula Island, this character will teach your Pokémon a move that it either had as an Egg Move and has forgotten, or that was long up its Level Up list. This is handy to make sure your Pokémon has the correct moves or if you accidentally deleted a move. It's also got a new feature in Sun & Moon where it will also teach you a move that is further along it's moveset, normally learned at a higher level.

Move Deleter

Location: Hau'oli City

Details:
The Move Deleter was previously an important character in past games because he allowed for you to delete HM moves. However, as HM moves aren't in the game, he is now less useful. However, if you want to delete Pokémon's moves, perhaps to have a Last Resort moveset, then you can find him in Hau'oli City's Pokémon Center.

Volt Tackle

Location: Konikoni City

Details:
Volt Tackle has always been a move that Pikachu could get through breeding with a Light Ball. With Sun & Moon, Volt Tackle becomes more important as it's the move Pikachu needs in order to use its Z-Move Catastropika. As such, the trainer who gives yo Pikachu's Z-Crystal will also teach the move Volt Tackle to your Pikachu.

Mythical Moves: Secret Sword & Relic Song

Location: Hano Grand Resort

In Hano Grand Resort's hotel, you'll be able to find this gentleman who will teach the specia moves Secret Sword and Relic Song to your Keldeo & Meloetta respectively. These moves are necessary for Keldeo to become Resolute Form and Meloetta to turn into its Pirouette Forme in battle.
