PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I mean moves that are not exclusive to a single evolutionary family, like Sunsteel Strike is exclusive to only Solgaleo. I define "least distributed" as only two to three evolutionary lines that can learn it, via level up or otherwise. The least distributed I could come up with is Night Daze, given only to Lunala, Zorua, and Zoroark. Please include all moves that fit this description. Moves and Pokemon no longer in Sword and Shield should also be included, if they fit the requirements.

Thank you.

One I know is Water Shuriken.  Only Greninja and Accelgor can learn Water Shuriken since there both stealthy Pokémon.  Greninja learns this by evolution and Acceptor learns this by level up.
Thanks. Forgot about Water Shuriken. Also, Magnetic Flux can be learned by more than just those two, though.
Huh. Maybe Pusle and Minun.  Or maybe it is just those two.
Yup your right let me fix that. There is too much
Shoot, I started making my answer before you edited it to say "only two to three evo lines", and interpreted it as "two non related Pokemon" instead :(. I'll edit it later on, if you'd like
Oof. I just fixed that once I realized not three but six lines can learn it.

Hope this helped! If I missed one, please let me know!

if any mods see this, for V-Create, both Victini and Rayquaza should have an asterisk by them, but the software interprets this as me wanting to italicize the words in between instead, and I dont know how to disable that, so if you could edit it so that it formats properly, that would be a big help
What did you use to answer? Bulbapedia?
Kingdra learns octazooka.
updated. and i manually went through the list of moves on bulbapedia to see which ones had the smallest distribution
felix, try slashes or backslashes.
What do you mean?
\*He/she/it probably means this.\*
