Is there a move deleter in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?

Get rid of those moves.

The Pokémon series is full of Pokémon, each one learning different moves as they level up or by TMs and HMs. When using an HM, a move is permanently learned and cannot be deleted without the use of a move deleter. This may leave you wondering if there is a move deleter in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
