In the 4th Generation, along with in-game trades we saw Move Tutors make a return. What is a move tutor? A move tutor can teach your Pokemon all sorts of new moves, if you give them something in return such as a shard or Heart Scale. There was also a tutor who could teach you some powerful moves in return for BP points, along with a tutor who charged no price but could teach your starter their ultimate move (Hydro Cannon, Frenzy Plant, Blast Burn)

Now my question to is that did you like the new moves being offered in this generation? Were they worthless, great? Why do you think that? Are the prices in return for a move unfair? Anything you think they could of added or put in? In case you can't remember some of the moves the tutors taught or just want to double check, here's some information on the Move Tutors, what they are and also what they can teach your Pokemon:

And without further ado, discuss! :D

The move tutor moves were great in Platinum and HGSS. However, I prefer Platinum's system of using shards for move tutors. Who thought it would be a good idea to change it to BP, and a crap ton of it? That was a very bad move on their part. It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't so expensive, but I don't feel like sitting around at the Battle Frontier all day trying to get the BP for Fire Punch. rood. Platinum you just had to dig for shards. Much easier.

So yeah, love the moves that were offered, hate the method in HGSS.
