Will we actually get the Move Tutors from the get-go? or do we have to wait next year for the next glorified DLC/Patch and/or remakes again?

Do you think we'll actually be getting Move Tutors from the get-go for once?

I asked this because in the recent trailer, we have seen Gastrodon used Earth Power which it can only learn via Move Tutor of which are only available in the enhanced versions and remakes and not the first game(s) of the generation.

Unless its only because:
A) Gastrodon can learn it via level-up or egg move now
or
B) Its only a transferred Gastrodon that learned the move (more likely the former)

We could actually get Move Tutors from the get-go for once rather than waiting for next year just to pay for either the next glorified DLC or the next remake?

I was going to say that it probably won’t happen since, at least for the past two generations, move tutors have only been in the secondary pair of games in a generation, however, your comment about Gastrodon and Earth Power lends credit to the theory that SwSh will have move tutors. Considering the fact that these games are slated for “long-time fans” or what have you, it would make sense to include move tutors since they’re useful for competitive, something long-time fans are generally more interested in. So there’s a chance move tutors might be in.

Especially considering that trading between two games in the same generation would be either limited or completely not present because of Dexit, meaning that if they included move tutors only in the followup games then some Pokemon will be unable to access them.

We don't know if they are in or not. For all we know, its just an updated movepool.

DLC at best.

Those Pokemon wouldn't be relevant to the updated metagame anyway, unless the game turned out to be a Galar expansion.

Sheesh, I've been critical of these games since E3, and even I think that poll was uncalled for.
To actually answer the topic; Hopefully! I mean, there's a lot that could go into why Gastrodon had Earth Power in the trailers, but I really doubt that it's because it was transferred over.
I do, however, hope that if it isn't because we're getting Move Tutors from the get-go, that maybe we're seeing more Pokemon getting access to new Egg Moves. It would be a nice incentive for breeding.

Earth Power could have also been made into a TM move. Just throwing that out there.
