If you want your Pokemon to remember a move, select the appropriate option. Then, select a Pokemon who you want to learn a new move. The next step is to select the move you want, and confirm your selection. If the Pokemon you’ve selected already has a full move set, you’ll then have to choose which move you want it to forget. It can be a tough choice, sure, and the best move combos are really up to you. Some are obviously more powerful than others, some less so. Just, you know, exercise common-sense caution.

If, on the other hand, you want your Pokemon to forget a move, the system is pretty much the same. The only real difference is that you have to select Forget a move instead of Remember a move. Then again, you can simply swap out moves using the above-mentioned method without having to manually forget a move.
