First FAQ ever published by me! If there are any mistakes in this FAQ, please email me at buttonbasher@gmail.com. I don't want email saying how bad this guide is, just mistakes or additions, and please put 'FAQ' or 'Move Tutor' in the subject, otherwise I might not get it. Thank you!

You may keep a copy of this FAQ for reference, but I ask that there is to be no huge copy and pasting into another document of any kind.

Since this is HTML, you don't need any special font. :P This is a special version created just for PokeDream.com. Hope this guide serves you well!

2 - Where are the move tutors, and what do they teach
4 - Credits

Where's section 3 I hear you ask? This isn't the full version, it's a HTML version made just for PokeDream.com.

1 - WHO ARE THE MOVE TUTORS

The move tutors are various people located around Kanto in FireRed and LeafGreen. Unlike the move tutor in Ruby and Sapphire, they specialize in one technique. These just happen to be some of the old TM moves that have been replaced by other moves since the original Red and Blue. This includes moves such as Body Slam, Rock Slide and Thunder Wave, and 3 special techniques that can only be taught to the 3 starter Pokemon of Fire and Leaf- Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. Each tutor will only teach their technique once, so choose your Pokemon wisely when it comes to teaching it. Also, these attacks do not get passed on to the baby by breeding, like normal TMs do.
