A Move Deleter's only restrictions are that they cannot make a Pokémon forget the last move it knows and, in {{game|Emerald}}, they cannot make a Pokémon forget {{m|Surf}} if that Pokémon is the only one in the player's [[party]] or [[Pokémon Storage System|PC]] that knows the move.
Those restrictions aside, the Move Deleter is the only way for a Pokémon to forget [[HM]] moves such as {{m|Cut}} or {{m|Fly}} besides exploiting the {{pkmn|Day Care}}. This is particularly useful for transferring Pokémon from Generations {{gen|III}} or {{gen|IV}} to the following generation via [[Pal Park]] or [[Poké Transfer]], since Pokémon cannot know any HM moves when they are transferred. They are also the only way to decrease the number of moves that a Pokémon knows.
The Move Deleter's service was likewise useful in the [[Generation II]] games to delete moves exclusive to the second generation so that Pokémon could be traded to [[Generation I]] games via the [[Time Capsule]].
