Recently, I tried to get expanding force on my Tapu Lele - it said that it was incompatible.
Next, I tried Tapu Koko and it couldn't learn rising voltage.
Afterwards, I tried Tapu Bulu and it couldn't learn Grassy Glide.
I didn't do Tapu Fini because I don't have it, but I am pretty sure the result would be the same.

Does anyone know if this is true, that the Tapus won't get their respective move tutor moves? If so, I feel like lots of people will exhale in relief once they know that there won't be any Rising Voltage Kokos around...

I’m happy bout the kokos but I’d love an expanding force lele
Me: time to make an OU team with Expanding Force Lele

Teambuilder: nope
the datamine was incorrect about those moves but they all got some mostly useless new additions to their movepools still
Tapu Koko - Assurance, Fairy Wind, Stored Power, Swift, Eerie Impulse, Endure, Rest
Tapu Lele - Play Rough, Psycho Cut, Future Sight, Stored Power, Charm, Endure, Guard Swap, Power Swap, Speed Swap, Rest
Tapu Bulu - Bullet Seed, Close Combat, Darkest Lariat, High Horsepower, Mega Punch, Revenge, Rock Smash, Mega Drain, Stored Power, Endure, Guard Swap, Power Swap, Rest
Tapu Fini - Dive, Play Rough, Disarming Voice, Draining Kiss, Stored Power, Endure, Guard Swap, Rest
Stored Power could be used with CM Fini, though I feel like Bulu was the only one who got solid additions to its movepool.
i doubt stored power will be useful especially without the stab boost. CM draining kiss has potential though for sure

Yes, all the Tapu's don't learn their respective moves or any moves from Move Tutors.
