Ex. Zoroarks signature move was Night Daze, but later was also learnable by Lunala in gen 7. Incineroars signature move was Darkest Lariat, but was later turned into a TR in gen 8. Hawluchas signature move was Flying Press, but was later learnable by Pikachu-Libre. What are all the times this has happened? Oh and if the move was later learned by more than one Pokemon, you only need to tell the first other Pokemon that learned it. Annd last thing hopefully. If the move is learnable by the Pokemon evolution it doesn't count as a signature move because another Pokemon can learn it.

Alrighty then, let's give this one a shot. The first Pokemon listed is the one with the signature move originally, and the second is the first one to receive it (By level up, preferably, but if none learn it through level up then the second listed Pokemon gets it through breeding.) And not by events either.

Gen 1

  • Frenzy Plant (Venusaur to Meganium)
  • Blast Burn (Charizard to Typhlosion)
  • Hydro Cannon (Blastoise to Feraligatr)
  • Twineedle (Beedrill to Escavalier)
  • Rolling Kick (Hitmonlee to Hitmontop)
  • Hi Jump Kick (Hitmonlee to Hitmontop)
  • Dizzy Punch (Kangaskan to Spinda)

Gen 2

  • Megahorn (Heracross to Nidoking)
  • Extreme Speed (Arcanine to Rayquaza)
  • Mach Punch (Hitmonchan to Hitmontop)
  • Morning Sun (Espeon to Solrock)
  • Pain Split (Misdreavus to Mismagius)
  • Beat Up (Sneasel to Weavile)
  • Octazooka (Octillery to Grapploct)
  • Mimic (Suduwoodo to Jigglypuff)
  • Sacred Fire (Ho-Oh to Entei)

  • Poison Tail (Seviper to Venipede)
  • Weather Ball (Castform to Lugia/Ho-oh)
  • Blaze Kick (Blaziken to Hitmonlee)

Note: Leaf Blade and Muddy Water are not here because they are learned by Grovyle and Marshtomp, not just Sceptile and Swampert.

Gen 4

  • Rock Wrecker (Rhyperior to Dwebble)
  • Heart Swap (Manaphy to Magearna)

(Wow, is that really it? It's all I can find.)

Gen 5

  • Horn Leech (Sawsbuck to Phantump)
  • Night Daze (Zoroark to Lunala)
  • Secret Power (Audino to Vulpix)

(That's really it and one of them was an example?)

Gen 6

  • Water Shuriken (Greninja to Accelgor)
  • Crafty Shield (Klefki to Chimecho)
  • Spiky Shield (Chesnaught to Cacturne)
  • Mystical Fire (Delphox to Mismagius)
  • Powder (Vivillion to Cutifly/Ribombee)
  • Flying Press (Hawlucha to Pikachu-Libero)

Gen 7

  • Throat Chop (Incineroar to Obstagoon)
  • Darkest Lariat (Incineroar to TR)
  • First Impression (Golisopod to Galarian Sirfetch'd)
  • Psychic Fangs (Bruxish to TR)
  • Zing Zap (Togedemaru to Pincurchin)
  • Sparkling Aria (Primarina to Lapras)
  • Fire Lash (Heatmor to Centiskorch/Salazzle)

Sm 4evr specifically said moves that ONE POKEMON can learn. And, because Klefli nor Chimecho are in SwSh, it is considered their signature move now.
Klefki is in the IoA.
Okay, I'll change that, thanks
Are you going to update this for crowned tundra then?
@Dracovish Yes, if I remember
