I know Ultra Warp Ride Legendary's moves are pre-determined, but is this for all the cases? Like in the tall grass, Ultra Warp ride non legendarys, and you get it.

That's all.

When encountered, a wild Pokémon's moveset will generally consist of the most recent four moves its species would know by leveling-up; that is to say, a level 8 Yanma will know Tackle, Foresight, and Quick Attack when encountered in the wild in Pokémon Platinum, while one encountered at level 19 will have Quick Attack, Double Team, Sonic Boom, and Detect. This is true even for evolved species, such as Raichu, which, if it were able to be encountered in the wild in Pokémon Platinum, would always know Thunder Shock, Tail Whip, Quick Attack, and Thunderbolt.

Most wild Pokemon will know the last four moves that they've been able to learn. As far as I know, the only example of wild Pokemon not following this rule is when a Pokemon with an egg move is found through DexNav.

Ultra Necrozma in Ultra Megalopolis is also an exception, since it’s technically a wild encounter.
