Shortly after traveling to the Isle of Armor, you will find yourself training in Master Mustard's Dojo. While the Dojo's offerings are fairly slim at first, there is a new Move Tutor who will become available after you pick between Bulbasaur and Squirtle. He is one of Master Mustard's students who specializes in new moves, any of which he'll teach to your Pokémon for just five Armorite Ore.

Although five Armorite Ore per move might sound like a hefty price to pay, you can earn a bunch of Armorite Ore as you travel on the Isle of Armor. It can be a reward in some Max Raid Battles, Hidden Items, and can be multiplied by Digging Ma.
