Such as SM legendaries having their signature moves, and Volcanion having Steam Eruption, and for a non legendary, Galarian Weezing with Strange Steam.

Do you want me to put this question back on the unanswered list?
Only if you can think of at least one other pokemon that Blast Fury forgot, because if it's just that, then I'm fine.
The Gastly family were the only ones with ghost poison type and night shade in gen 1. The Exeggcute family were the only ones with grass psychic type and barrage in gen 1. Jynx was the only Pokemon with ice psychic type and lovely kiss from gen 1 to gen 7. Heracross was the only Pokemon with bug fighting type and megahorn in gen 2. Sneasel was the only Pokemon with dark ice type and beat up in gens 2 and 3.
Thanks, definitely change it to unanswered then.
my answer looks wierd as a comment

  • Impidimp family (Dark/Fairy): Confide (move), False Surrender (move, signature for Morgrem and Grimsnarl), Spirit Break (move, signature for Grimsnarl)

Note that this list does not include moves or abilities on prior evolutions who lack the type. (Volt Tackle is not listed on Alolan Raichu because the prior evolutions who are pure Electric learn it too) This list also does not consider signature moves bulbapedia classifies as due to only one Pokemon learning by level up where the move is also an egg move. It does include signature moves for entire evolution lines with the type combo that are only on the final form.

Source: checking [this][1] with [this][2] and [this][3], making sure to remove examples where signature moves can be learned by breeding and signature abilities on evolution families where the type changes.

Hope this helped!
