PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I've just started playing the Pokemon yellow pikachu edition, 1 question as I'm playing. I've looked around for the answer but couldn't find a clear 1 on this or other sites.

If I evolve a Pokemon later then a move which is set for the evolved Pokemon at a certain level, will I miss the chance to get that move?

E.g. Nidorina - Nidoqueen
Nidoqueen learns bodyslam @ lvl 23, so if I evolved Nidorina after lvl 23, have I lost the opportunity to learn bodyslam for Nidoqueen?

I'm pretty sure you do lose that opportunity unless the move is on a TM. The move reminder didn't exist until Generation 3.
Do you mean in game?

No, you cannot relearn moves. You lose the opportunity to learn Body Slam for Nidoqueen, but you can relearn if you have a copy of Pokemon Stadium G/S/C on the N64. Beat the gym leader castle in that, and 1 of the 6 participating Pokemon in the final stage can relearn a level-up move it previously knew.
