Learning and unlearning
Pokémon obtained via specific methods, such as [[Event Pokémon|events]] or [[purification]], may know "special moves" that they otherwise could not learn.
A Pokémon can only know four moves at a time. In order to learn new moves once four have been learned, it must forget one old move for every new move. Some moves cannot be forgotten naturally, such as moves learned by HM. To remove these, a Trainer must incorporate the help of a [[Move Deleter]]. Moves that the Pokémon does not currently know and was able to learn at an earlier [[level]] ([[Generation]]s {{gen|II}} to {{gen|VI}}) or at any level ([[Generation VII]] and above) can be learned with the help of a [[Move Reminder]].
In [[Generation I]] only, moves learned via level-up won't be learned if a Pokémon gains enough EXP Points to "skip" the level on which they are learned, while in [[Generation II]] they were learned after leveling up. Since [[Generation III]], they are learned while the Pokémon levels up.
