In the Pokémon fandom, the term signature move is often used to refer to a move that can only be learned by a single species or its evolutionary relatives, usually in the same evolutionary line. Most are learned by leveling up, but some can be learned through other means when no Pokémon can learn the move by leveling up. Also, some of these moves can be passed down via breeding to other Pokémon or are known by certain event Pokémon.
Note that the information below may not be up to date, as edits to move distributions are still being made. Last updated: 29th May, 2017 at 15:00 GMT. Note also that, when all move distributions are final, there will be no distinction made between "intended" and "unintended" signature moves.

Unintended signature moves
The moves known by these Pokémon were NOT intended to be signature moves. Instead, after move distributions were done, these moves were discovered to be exclusive to only one species or evolutionary line.
These moves would be signature moves, but at least one other Pokémon is also able to learn it as an egg move.
- Calphite and Indrolith are the only Pokémon that can learn Horn Attack. However, they can pass this move on to Kidling and Slatic as an egg move.
- Dreamdery is the only Pokémon that can learn Lovely Kiss. However, it can pass this move on to Erycoon and Lintle as an egg move.
- Taomarin and Orangutao are the only Pokémon that can learn Smelling Salts. However, they can pass this move on to Platypow as an egg move.
- Erycoon is the only Pokémon that can learn Tail Slap. However, it can pass this move on to Platypow and Slatic as an egg move.
