Move Reminder

This article is about the characters that teach moves Pokémon can learn at previous levels. For the characters that teach specific moves, see Move Tutor.

A Move Reminder (Japanese: わざおしえマニア Move-Teaching Maniac), sometimes called a move relearner by fans, is a character who allows Pokémon to relearn any move that they were able to learn from a previous level-up (usually in exchange for a Heart Scale). Reasons for this include none of that species being able to be obtained at an early enough level to actually learn the move (e.g. Zapdos and AncientPower in Generation IV), or the species having more than four starting moves (e.g. Kecleon).

Teachable moves

Move Reminders are restricted to teaching a Pokémon only moves that its species can learn; they cannot teach moves exclusive to an earlier evolution. In particular, many Pokémon that evolve by evolutionary stone have a very restricted set of learnable moves in their evolved forms compared to their unevolved forms. For example, Eevee can learn Take Down by leveling up, but none of its evolutions can; this means that an Eevee of level 25 or higher could be taught Take Down by a Move Reminder, but a Vaporeon or other Eeveelution of the same level could not.

Certain Pokémon may also be taught moves via the Move Reminder that they would not normally learn until a later level or at all by leveling up. For example, while Lopunny could normally only learn Healing Wish at level 63 by leveling up, a Move Reminder can teach the move to Lopunny before then since it also counts as one of Lopunny's starting moves. The move Rototiller can also be taught to Lopunny by a Move Reminder, and this is the only way for Lopunny to learn this move (outside of breeding).

In Generation VI, any Pokémon bred or obtained in a Generation VI game may also be taught any move it knew when it hatched or was obtained. This includes Egg moves, Volt Tackle bred onto Pichu, and event-exclusive moves such as the Pokémon Center Tokyo Bay Inkay's Happy Hour.

Like all methods of teaching moves (other than Pokémon Day Care), the Move Reminder cannot overwrite HM moves.

In Pokémon XD, if a Pokémon has four moves, the Move Reminder will not be able to teach it a move until the Move Deleter deletes one of the Pokémon's current moves.

Locations

While Generation II has no formal Move Reminder, in Pokémon Stadium 2, after defeating the Elite Four and Champion at the Gym Leader Castle, the player will be allowed to reteach a move to one of the Pokémon that was involved in the battle.
