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.
