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
