In the {{pkmn|anime}}, several characters comparable to Move Tutors have appeared. However, instead of directly teaching the move to a Pokémon, the "Move Tutors" in the anime usually tend to just show an example of the move they are teaching, and the Pokémon has to work hard in order to properly master it.
In ''[[AG013|All Things Bright and Beautifly!]]'', a [[Pokémon Coordinator]] named {{an|Chaz}} offered to help {{Ash}} to teach his {{AP|Pikachu}} {{m|Iron Tail}} in preparation for his [[Rustboro Gym]] battle with [[Roxanne]], demonstrating the move with his {{p|Sentret}}. Although Pikachu started learning the move in the same episode, it took him until the events of ''[[AG016|The Winner By a Nosepass]]'', during the Gym battle with Roxanne, to perfect the move.
In ''[[AG060|Delcatty Got Your Tongue]]'', {{an|May}} was impressed by the moves used by Johnny, a {{p|Delcatty}} belonging to [[Dr. Abby]]. May wanted her {{TP|May|Skitty}} to learn {{m|Blizzard}}, but she was unsure in her own abilities and thought she would not be able to teach her Pokémon to use the move the way Abby, a [[Top Coordinator]], taught Johnny. Abby told Skitty to mimic Johnny and, after a bit of practice, Skitty successfully used Blizzard. The move was mastered in ''[[AG062|Disguise Da Limit]]'' during the {{to|Verdanturf}} {{pkmn|Contest}}.
In ''[[AG090|Pokéblock, Stock, and Berry]]'', when Ash was having trouble of teaching his {{AP|Swellow}} {{m|Aerial Ace}}, a man named "[[Vladimir]] the Attacker" offered to teach Ash how to use the move properly, using his {{p|Pidgeotto}}'s Aerial Ace as a demonstration. Swellow managed to master the move in [[AG091|the next episode]].
