Battle Resort Move Tutor glitch

The Battle Resort Move Tutor glitch is a natural glitch in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It causes an NPC to refer to a Pokémon by one of its moves' names, rather than the actual Pokémon itself.


1. Attempt to spend Battle Points to teach a move on a Pokémon with at least four moves

2. Proceed, and attempt to replace a move to get message "You're good with having it forget (move name)?"

3. Cancel out instead of choosing "yes", and the message "Give up on learning the move (move tutor move name)?" will appear.

4. Choose yes, and the message "(name of move that was going to be placed) did not learn (move tutor move name)!" will erroneously appear.
