Where to Find the Move Reminder and Relearn Moves in Pokemon Sword & Shield
In the past, Move Reminder NPCs were often hidden away somewhere far into the game in some random house that you’d have to stumble upon randomly and travel to any time you wanted to use their relearning services.
Fortunately, in Pokemon Sword & Shield, this process is made a lot less painful.
In every Pokemon Center in the Galar region, you can find a Move Reminder NPC who will reteach your Pokemon their forgotten moves.
He hangs out on the left most counter and if you speak to him you can take advantage of his services. If your Pokemon has any hidden egg moves, or moves that you have formally deleted you can relearn them any time you want.
It goes without saying that you still have a max of four move slots on any Pokemon. So, if you’ve filled those all up, you’ll need to pick a move to delete in order to make space for the one you want to relearn. Of course you can always just swap it right back if you change your mind.
The Move Reminder can be found in the left counter of any Pokemon Center. He will help Pokemon relearn old moves.
Relearing moves is key for making sure you always have the best movesets possible for battling tougher trainers, so definitely make sure you’re paying close attention to which ones you’re using and relearn anything you accidentally deleted.
