Just like in all recent Pokémon games, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have a number of NPCs that can teach your Pokémon moves that they don’t normally learn by leveling up and that are not necessarily teachable by TM use. These NPCs are called Move Tutors and there are several different kinds all across the Alola region.

Beach Tutors

One of the new features in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is the inclusion of the Mantine surfing minigame. Doing tricks during the minigame will earn you points and the more points you have after a round, the more BP (Battle Points or Beach Points) you will receive afterward. There are three beaches that players can Mantine surf from and these three beaches are home to three Move Tutors who will teach your Pokémon moves in exchange for BP.

The Move Tutor at Big Wave Beach on Melemele Island will teach the following moves for the following amount of BP:

Specific Move Tutors

There are also a few Move Tutors in the game that teach between one and three specific moves, only to specific Pokémon. Two such Move Tutors can be found at the blue booth in the mall of the Hau’oli City Shopping District. The Move Tutors at this booth will teach moves only to the fully evolved versions of the 21 starter Pokémon. The female NPC to the right side of this booth will teach Fire Pledge to fully evolved Fire-Type starters, Grass Pledge to fully evolved Grass-Type starters and Water Pledge to fully evolved Water-Type starters. The male NPC to the left side of this booth will teach Blast Burn to fully evolved Fire-Type starters, Frenzy Plant to fully evolved Grass-Type starters and Hydro Cannon to fully evolved Water-Type starters.

At the Hano Grand Resort, there is a famous Pikachu hanging out by the pool out front. After you complete a brief side-mission for the Pikachu, the man standing next to it will become a Move Tutor that can teach Volt Tackle to a Pikachu.

Inside the Hano Grand Resort, there is an elderly man in a blue shirt standing next to an Alolan Meowth. This man is a Move Tutor who can teach Relic Song to Meloetta and Secret Sword to Keldeo.

There are two Move Tutors inside the Pokémon Center at Seafolk Village. To the right side of the building, there is a bald man in a red shirt who can teach Dragon Ascent to Rayquaza. To the left side of the building, there is a female Ace Trainer who can teach Draco Meteor to any Dragon-Type Pokémon.

Move Deleter and Reminder

In the Hau’oli City Pokémon Center, there is a bald man in a beige shirt to the right side of the building. This man is the Move Deleter, who can make your Pokémon forget any move that they know. Since HM moves are no longer a mechanic in these games, the Move Deleter is significantly less useful than in previous generations, but if you want to use him, he’s there.

In the Mount Lanakila Pokémon Center, there is an elderly woman in a green dress to the right side of the building. This woman is the Move Reminder, who can teach a Pokémon any move that it used to know and has forgotten. The Move Reminder can also teach moves that a Pokémon has yet to learn, that it would normally learn by leveling up further than it currently is.
