A '''Move Tutor''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|技教|わざおし}}え{{tt|人|びと}}''' ''Move Teacher'') is a [[non-player character]] who will teach a [[Pokémon]] specific [[move]]s. Move Tutors are found in [[Kanto]] (including the [[Sevii Islands]]), [[Johto]], [[Hoenn]], [[Orre]], [[Sinnoh]], [[Unova]], [[Kalos]], [[Alola]], and the [[Pokémon Stadium]]. They are not to be confused with [[Move Reminder]]s.
==Generation I Move Tutors==
===Stadium (Japanese)===
In the game known as {{OBP|Pokémon Stadium|Japanese}} in Japanese that was only released in Japan, if the player clears the Master Ball division of the L1-30 Division with a {{p|Pikachu}} in his or her party, the Pikachu can learn {{m|Surf}}.
==Generation II Move Tutors==

==Generation III Move Tutors==
===FireRed and LeafGreen===
These Move Tutors are in {{v2|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}. They do not appear in the [[Generation I]] games.
==Generation IV Move Tutors==
===Diamond and Pearl===
There are two Move Tutors in Sinnoh—one on {{rt|228|Sinnoh}} and one on {{rt|210|Sinnoh}}. The Move Tutor on Route 210 teaches {{m|Draco Meteor}} to a Dragon-type Pokémon which has had its [[friendship]] maximized. Similar to the Cape Brink Move Tutor in FireRed and LeafGreen, the Route 228 Move Tutor will teach one of the elemental versions of {{m|Hyper Beam}} to a fully-evolved starter with maximum friendship. Unlike the Cape Brink tutor, it can be any of the twelve [[starter Pokémon]], but the move's type will always correspond with the Pokémon's primary type. Also unlike the Cape Brink tutor, it can be taught as many times as the player likes.
==Generation V Move Tutors==
===Black and White===
In {{game|Black and White|s}}, there are four Move Tutors in Unova: one in [[Driftveil City]], one on {{rt|13|Unova}}, one in [[Opelucid City]] and one in [[Castelia City]]. A man in his house in Driftveil City teaches the newly-introduced {{DL|Move variations|Pledge moves}}, which can be combined with each other in double and triple battles for additional effects. As before, the elemental {{m|Hyper Beam}} variants can be taught to [[friendship|friendly]] fully-evolved [[starter Pokémon]] of each respective type, with the new Move Tutor being located on Route 13. {{m|Draco Meteor}} is taught by the opposite game's [[Opelucid Gym]] [[Gym Leader|Leader]] ([[Drayden]]{{sup/5|Wh}} or [[Iris]]{{sup/5|Bl}}), but maximum friendship is not required. Also, if the player brings an event {{p|Meloetta}} to Café Sonata in [[Castelia City]], a musician will teach it {{m|Relic Song}}. Furthermore, if the player brings an event {{p|Keldeo}} with {{p|Cobalion}}, {{p|Terrakion}}, and {{p|Virizion}} in their party to [[Moor of Icirrus]], they will teach it {{m|Secret Sword}}.
