View Full Version : Where's the Move Tutor?

Where is the Move Tutor and what do I have to do to get moves taught? Is there a limit to the amount of moves taught? I'd like a Body Slammin', Rock Slidin', Swords Dancin' Sandslash, if possible.

The move tutors are all over the world. A certain competitor has the lists on their site...

For a few, there's the Rock Slide Tutor boy in the Rock Tunnel, Mega Punch/Kick outside Mt.Moon(Cerulean), and Substitute outside the Safari Zone.

Is there a link to the full list of which teaches what and where?

Yes, but unfortunetly it's technically advertising the site, since the owner is afraid that his info will be stolen(back...) most areas are right-click protected, and I'm not sure if it even links directly to the info.

Body Slam: A man inside a house on Mystery Island 4 will teach Body Slam

Counter: A person behind a counter on the 3rd floor of the Celadon City Department Store teaches Counter.

Double-Edge: A man at the end of Victory Road will teach Double-Edge.

Dream Eater: A man standing on the other side of a pond in Viridian City will teach Dream Eater. You will need to bring a Pokémon that knows either Cut or Surf with you to reach him.

Explosion: A guy in the northern part of Island 1 will teach Explosion.

Mega Punch: Outside of Mt. Moon, before Cerulean City. There are two move tutors. The one on the left will teach Mega Punch.

Mega Kick: Same place as the tutor that teaches Mega Punch, but he is the one on the right.

Metronome: A scientist in the Cinnabar Island Labratory will teach Metronome.

Mimic: The Copycat Girl in Saffron City will teach Mimic after you give her the Pokédoll.

Rock Slide: A guy near the end of the Rock Tunnel teaches Rock Slide.

Seismic Toss: A scientist in the Pewter City Museum teaches Seismic Toss.

Softboiled: A man standing across a small pond in Celadon City will teach Softboiled. You will need a Pokémon that knows Surf to be able to reach him.

Substitute: A man in front of the Kangaskhan pen in Fuchsia City teaches Substitute.

Swords Dance: A guy standing on the pier of Island 7 will teach Swords Dance.

Thunder Wave: A lady on the 2nd floor of the Silph Co. building will teach Thunder Wave.

Also, on Island 2, there is a move tutor that will teach your starter Pokémon a special move. Your starter Pokémon will be the only Pokémon that can learn it. The move is like an "elemental Hyper Beam"

Bulbasaur-Frenzy Plant
Charmander-Blast Burn
Squirtle-Hydro Cannon

Two questions:

1) When you say "starter pokemon", does it HAVE to be Bulbasaur, or could it be one of it's evos?

2) Is Plant Frenzy worth it, or is Solarbeam or Razor Leaf better?

It doesn't have to be a Bulbasaur, but it does have to be the pokémon that you recieved, as a Bulbasaur, at the beginning of the game. If you breed another Bulbasaur, that other one can't use this Move Tutor.

The general opinion around here is that Hyper Beam sucks and its elemental versions aren't any better. The turn you lose recharging is just too big a drawback.

Then what's a better replacement for a plant move?

Razor Leaf is a far superior move.
