The Pokemon BDSP Move Relearner comes quite a way into your Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl journey. Remembering moves is crucial if you want to create the perfect party in Pokemon BDSP, but you can only do it when you find the Move Tutor. It can be very easy to delete a move in favour of another one, only to regret this decision later when building your team. Some Pokemon also have moves that can only be learned at level 1, which is done by breeding the Pokemon. But, all is not lost as the Pokemon BDSP Move Relearner allows you to relearn any move in a Pokemon's moveset.

The Move Relearner can be found in Pastoria City, with the house being located north-east of the Pokemart. Pastoria City is where the fourth Gym is located, a water-type Gym, and it's also where you can find the Safari Zone, known as the Great Marsh. This is where many rare Pokemon can be found, particularly water-type Pokemon.

When you find the Move Tutor house, head inside and you will find a single NPC standing in the right corner of the room next to a bookcase. Talk to him to begin relearning moves for your Pokemon.

Pokemon BDSP Move Relearner: How It Works

Talk to the man in the Move Relearner house in order to relearn moves. You will need to pay one Heart Scale for each move that you relearn. These can be found by mining in the Grand Underground and are fairly easy to come across. Heart Scales can also be found as a held item by Luvdisc when caught with a Super Rod at the Pokemon League, as well as one being on the ground to collect in Route 212.

Pokemon BDSP Move Relearner: What Moves Can Be Relearned?

All of the moves in a Pokemon's moveset can be relearned. Many Pokemon have moves that can only be learned at level 1, which are obtained through breeding. These can also be relearned with the Move Relearner, with some moves being extremely powerful so these are certainly worth checking out.

Some notable level 1 moves include Torterra's Wood Hammer move, Crobat's Cross Poison, Gyarados' Thrash, and Garchomp's Fire Fang.

Pokemon BDSP Move Relearner Restrictions

While most mosts can be relearned, there are a few restrictions that won't allow certain moves to be learned. 

  • A Pokemon can't relearn moves that are only learned by their pre-evolution. Each Pokemon has its own unique moveset and only these moves can be relearned.
  • Egg Moves can't be relearned, you will need to breed another Pokemon in order to get these again.
  • TMs can't be relearned.
