This is a page guide on the complete list of Move Tutors and moves learned by Move Tutor in the game Pokemon Sword and Shield. Read on for information on the location of each Move Tutor, what moves they teach, and the conditions to learn them.
List of Contents
Move Tutors are characters found around the game who will teach your Pokemon rare moves when you talk to them. They can be tricky to find, but this guide lays out all the info you need in one place.
Unlike previous games in the series, Move Tutors in Pokemon Sword and Shield can teach moves repeatedly to as many Pokemon as you like.
In The Isle of Armor DLC, a host of new Tutor Moves are available at the Master Dojo. All the Moves available here can be learned by paying 5x Armorite Ores.
|Terrain Pulse||The user utilizes the power of the terrain to attack. The move's type and power changes depending on the terrain when it's used.|

|Flip Turn||After making its attack, the user rushes back to switch places with a party Pokemon in waiting.|

|Expanding Force||The user attacks the target with its psychic power. This move's power goes up and damages all opposing Pokemon on Psychic Terrain.|
|Skitter Smack||The user skitters behind the target to attack. This also lowers the target's Sp. Atk stat.|
|Meteor Beam||In this two-turn attack, the user gathers space power and boosts its Sp. Atk stat, then attacks the target on the next turn.|
|Poltergeist||The user attacks the target by controlling the target's item. The move fails if the target doesn't have an item.|
|Scale Shot||The user attacks by shooting scales two to five times in a row. This move boosts the user's Speed stat but lowers its Defense stat.|

To find the NPC with the Tutor Move, go to the Gym (Stadium) and search for a narrow route facing down, just between the buildings around the area.
Then, go right and descend the long stairs. The man at the bottom will teach your Pokemon the move Steel Beam. However, for him to teach you the move, you must first complete the game and become the Champion.
|Steel Beam||The user fires a beam of steel that it collected from its entire body. This also damages the user.|
This move has a massive power of 140, but comes at the high cost of draining half of the user's HP.
From there, head left and you will encounter the boy asking for Applin. Head down the stairs from that location and you will find the Move Tutor for the three Pledge Moves.
Each Starter Pokemon can learn the move which matches its Type. Your Starter Pokemon can learn the Pledge Move of its type regardless of its stage of evolution.
|Grass Pledge||A column of grass hits the target. When used with its water equivalent, its power increases and a vast swamp appears|
|Fire Pledge||A column of fire hits the target. When used with its grass equivalent, its power increases and a vast sea of fire appears.|
|Water Pledge||A column of water strikes the target. When combined with its fire equivalent, its power increases and a rainbow appears.|
The Move Tutor for Draco Meteor is found in Circhester, located to your left when you enter the Hero's bath area.
He will teach your Dragon-type Pokemon the powerful move Draco Meteor.
|Draco Meteor||Comets are summoned down from the sky onto the targer. The attack's recoil harshly lowers the user's Special Attack stats|
The three 150-power Tutor Moves can be learned in Wyndon. To get to the Move Tutor, keep going straight until you see a park. Head right and talk to the man standing in the middle of the park.
He can teach your Starter Pokemon powerful attacks called Ultimate Moves. Each Starter Pokemon can learn the move which matches its Type. However, only a fully evolved Starter Pokemon can learn the Ultimate Move of its type.
|Frenzy Plant||The user slams the target with the roots of an enormous tree. The user can't move on the next turn.|
|Blast Burn||The target is razed by a fiery explosion. The user cannot move on the next turn|
