Use points from Mantine Surf in Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon to pay for Move Tutors

Posted on October 21, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

Game Freak shared a new aspect of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon in an interview with Eurogamer Portugal. We have a bit of news about Mantine Surf.

Director Kazumasa Iwao stated that points earned from Mantine Surf can be used to get items and have Move Tutors teach your Pokemon moves that they couldn’t learn in last year’s games. It’s similar to other enhanced versions, sequels, and remakes of Pokemon games. However, it’s not yet known if points can be obtained through other methods or if the points are Battle Points.

    Did I miss something? As far as I’m aware, move tutor moves have always been free. The only thing I remember was an ace trainer teaching Draco Meteor but your dragon pokemon had to have its friendship had to be maxed out

      Excuse me, but did you ever finish a mid-gen pokemon game?
      There were tutors in Emerald’s Battle Frontier that accepted BP, as well as tutors across the overworld that taught a move only once, the latter existed in FireRed and Leafrgreen as well.
      there were move tutors in Platinum that accepted shards.
      There were more move tutors in BW2 (in the PWT entrance) and ORAS (at the Battle Resort) that, again, accepted battle points for their services. At this point, you’ve skipped any game that didn’t have brand-new pokemon (games either have a new region to explore and no move tutors, or an old region to explore and move tutors), you didn’t talk to every npc you could find, or you never finished those games.

      Ofc, there were a few move tutors that appear in every game, like Draco Meteor you mentioned earlier; every game since Diamond and pearl has had a Draco Meteor move tutor, as well as one for Blast Burn, Hydro Cannon, and Frenzy Plant (though these are usually in the post game), and a second set of move tutors for Fire Pledge, Water Pledge, and Grass Pledge, as well as Meloetta’s Relic song and Keldeo’s Secret Sword, was added in Black and white, and every game since ORAS has a move tutor for Rayquaza’s Dragon Ascent

        I only remember the Gen 4 shard move tutor. I skipped all Gen 3 Pokemon games
        What I mean is after Gen 4 I don’t remember any of the tutors asking for anything, they just taught your Pokemon the moves once they “were ready”. (I don’t remember finishing BW2 so that’s probably why I don’t remember any recent titles having that)

        I usually talk to every NPC except the ones in the 1st one or two towns because they never tell me anything I don’t already know

          Did you play Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire, or does that fall under “gen III”?
          The gen VI move tutors were only found in ORAS, because there was no third version/sequel games

            Falls under gen3. Missed Gen 3.cuz I never got a GBA so I never had any connection with the Gen 3 games. I wasn’t hyped for ORAS at all

      As far as I recall, any move tutor that would teach a move for free would only ever do it once. Paying them is a better deal than once only.
