Where to Find Pokemon Sword & Shield Special Move Tutors?

To find the Special Move Tutors in Pokemon Sword & Shield, there are three locations for you to visit; in Hammerlocke, Circhester, and Wyndon, to be exact.

In Hammerlocke, head left from the entrance into the city. Cross the wooden drawbridge and keep going left until you come across the next gateway. Take the path leading to the left and down. The tutor is on the bottom of the long, stone staircase. He can teach Grass Pledge, Fire Pledge, or Water Pledge to your Starter Pokemon. They can learn them at any level, but only with a high Friendship level.

Next, we’re going to Circhester. From the place that the Flying Taxi drops you off, head up the path in front of you, and go to the right. Your target is the Circhester Bath, which is the large, Roman-looking building. Go inside, and talk to the gentleman in the pink vest (that’s what all Special Move Tutors look like). He can teach your Dragon type Pokemon the Draco Meteor, the most devastating move that type can have. Only if your Friendship with that Pokemon is at maximum, though.

Our last location is Wyndon, the town that you visit near the end of the main story missions. From the fast travel point, head to the right until you reach the park. Then, go up to the second entrance into said park. Head inside, and you’ll find the tutor on the small Pokemon pitch. He teaches Blast Burn / Frenzy Plant / Hydro Cannon to your Starter Pokemon, but only if their fully-evolved.
