Allow for all of the moves to be included from the contest. If this is such a big deal, we need to backtrack and disallow gen I tutors to the gen VI crowd that evolves. They cannot possibly learn those moves. If we are under the premise that pokemon learn a move and retain the knowledge, these five are no different and it creates needless complicated rules to try and limit them.
The inclusion of Anabel's Espeon knowing Zap Cannon toward the end of the Battle Frontier arc shows that Gen I/II TMs were still around in 'anime-land'. If one of the main characters had taught an 'old' TM to a Pokémon and then later evolved it into a new evolution, they'd still have knowledge of the move.

Rhydon can learn Zap Cannon.
Rhydon can evolve into Rhyperior.

Cosplay Pikachu can learn Icicle Crash.
Cosplay Pikachu cannot evolve into Raichu.
