Eevee, Take-down, and Relearning

This whole thing has been bugging me for quite some time now.

Eevee is a poor example of the limitations of the Move Relearner; in fact, Take-Down is just the sort of move the Move Relearner is made for. You level Eevee up until it learns Take-Down, then evolve, then use the Move Relearner to get the evolution's moves that you want. So rather than being an example of restrictions on the Move Relearner, it is in fact an example of HOW to use a Move Relearner. The only other true purpose of the Move Relearner is to gain 1st level moves (and, I guess, to remember moves you were forced to forget for an HM or something, but that's just poor planning and not a necessary problem).

Actually what makes Eevee special is that it is the only known Pokémon to use 3 different types of evolution methods, Take Down is the example of something that only Eevee can learn, though technically any Eevee-exclusive move will qualify. -Tyler53841 06:34, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

More specific?

The article leaves me a tad confused by "species". Does it mean, literally, the listed species of a pokémon? For instance, Chimchar and Infernape are both of the species "Blaze" pokémon. Chimchar can learn Flamethrower or Slack Off by levelling up, but Infernape can't. If you took an Infernape to the move relearner, could it learn these moves? It hasn't changed species, but it has evolved, and they aren't in its learnset any more. At present the article doesn't seem to answer this question for me. Darien Shields 22:49, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

No. Species here means the Pokémon species. So, no, Infernape cannot learn Slack Off or Flamethrower unless it learns them at the Chimchar stage. I'll add a link to the article to avoid further confusion. — THE TROM — 23:23, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
1. So if Chimchar learns Slack Off for example, then evolves up to Infernape, then Infernape forgets Slack Off, can Slack Off be relearnt?
2. How about bred moves that are forgotten? E.g. If I breed Blaze Kick to Chimchar, then he forgets it, can Blaze Kick be relearnt? --(QQ)wertyasdf 05:40, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
I don't believe so. You can't relearn TM moves once you delete them, right? It'll act the same. —darklordtrom 05:52, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
So no to both my questions? --(QQ)wertyasdf 05:59, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Pretty much anything that is deleted which is not listed in that Pokémon's level up moveset can't be relearned and unless if it is not a one-of-a kind move then you have to start over with the process with TM's, HM's, Breeding, and Move Tutors plain and simple which is why I conduct research to avoid these problems. So just research the level up movesets more closely and if you want take precautions thats the best advice I can give.-Tyler53841 06:05, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Number of uses?

I have thought for a few years that any particular move could only be relearned once by any particular pokemon, specifically that a pokemon could not relearn a level list move that it had already relearned once before but later forgotten. Was this ever really the case? PLA 09:40, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

No. --HeroicJay 09:47, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. PLA 09:48, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Character name

I wonder if there is an official (i.e: consistent) English term for the move-relearning character yet?

I remember Back in Hoenn the guy merely introduced himself as a "move tutor", being different from others in Emerald because he claimed to know "all" Pokemon moves but would only do so in exchange for collecting Heart Scales.

In Black 2 and White 2, the move relearner (now set up at the Pokemon World Tournament) actually calls herself "the reminder girl"; when you check the PWT on your Town Map, she is listed as the "Move Reminder". --Stratelier 17:00, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Bringing this back up. All of this is true, and should be on the article. --Abcboy (talk) 02:34, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
Totally agreed. Mathfreak231 is a bawse :) (talk) 23:40, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
The Sevii Islands guy calls himself the "POKéMON MOVE MANIAC". However, I think "Move Reminder", the most recent official term, should be used for the page title. --SnorlaxMonster 07:11, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
I agree, the most recent term should be used. However, an auto-redirect from "Move Relearner" shoud be added. --Csaint482 (talk) 16:40, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Csaint's idea sounds like the best idea to me. --Wynd Fox 01:43, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Done. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 22:41, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Dream World Moves

If a Pokémon came from the dream world with a special move (ex. a Tangela with Leech Seed), will that move be available to relearn if it is removed? SoItBegins (talk) 03:48, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Actually Forgotten Moves

I just corrected the Eevee page, which erroneously stated that Swift was a starting move in Generation VI. I think what actually happened was that an Eevee was bred and the father knew Swift, meaning the resulting offspring also knew Swift. Why is this important? Because in Generation VI, if you delete a move that a Pokémon knows at a too-low level due to breeding, you can still "remember" it through the Move Reminder. For me, I noticed that Bite was in the list after I deleted it, and the Eevee was still level 1. --GuyPerfect (talk) 04:44, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Note that in Generation VI, Eevees naturally learn Swift at level 10 and can be found in the wild knowing it, so it's easy to pass down. And on a related tangent, it is being anecdotally reported that the Generation VI Move Reminder can teach egg moves (like Wish for Eevee) back to a Pokemon, but only if the Pokemon actually knew the move when it hatched. This seems an interesting detail to note.... --Stratelier 19:59, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Right, it's the same deal. A hatched Eevee that knows, say, Bite, or Swift, then forgets it, can be taught it again at a Move Reminder. A hatched Eevee that did not know those moves cannot be "reminded" of them, and they'll need to reach the appropriate level to learn them. --GuyPerfect (talk) 16:53, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Egg Moves

Sorry about my edit. I had a moment of stupidity. Derp. Jwisser (talk) 21:06, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

A Question

I am wondering if a move reminder will work on a move a Pokémon learned at level 100. For an example, Mewtwo learns Psystrike at level 100. Or if a Pokémon is transferred to another generation, will it be able to learn an old move on that generation. Thanks. ----Ethan (Discussion) 22:17, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

It's yes for the first question. For the second, is the old move a move it can learn through level up (or an egg move in Generation VI) in that generation? If so then yes, if not, no. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 22:22, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Global Link Rewards

It should be noted that Heart Scales can be obtained in Generation VI by exchanging Poké Miles for them at the Pokémon Global Link website. NerfPlayeR135 (talk) 20:20, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Heart Scales are already readily available in-game. Glik (talk) 20:40, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Something Odd

I hatched an Oshawott that only knew Tackle, then took him to the Generation VI Move Reminder. It said that Oshawott could "relearn" Water Sport, even though it never knew the move. Any explanation? NerfPlayeR135 (talk) 20:24, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
