    Default Who should get signature moves?

    Vote and explain, please.

    I forgot an "Only one certain Pokémon" option, sorry.

    IMO, it would be nice if each line got one, give each one something special. =\

    Vote? Where? XP

    That aside, I think at least every Uber Legendary should get a Signature Move, or Signature Something. That's why it's weird they gave Ninetales and Politoed Drought and Drizzle, which were once Signature Abilities of Kyogre and Groudon. At least they should've done what they did with Rayquaza, and make two new Abilities with the same effect but different name, like Air Lock/Cloud Nine. Redundant, yes, but such is Pokémon. Now we have normal Pokémon capable of calamitous rain and heat. They could've made them "Summon Clouds" and "Clear Skies" or some sort, and maybe tone them down (Say, 10 turns of Sun/Rain, not permanent).

    But yeah, seeing how the Hoenn Legends don't have Signature Abilities anymore, they deserve Signature Moves now. What about a Move that gets a further boost during Rain/Sun? Making it 150% more powerful (STAB + Weather + Effect), like a super-powered Weather Ball (Base 100, like most Legendary Signature Moves). Rayquaza's could be a Flying or Dragon Move that gets more powerful with any weather in effect, meaning it's stronger if its Ability is being applied.

    All other Uber Legendaries seem to be covered. Only the 3rd Gen ones lost anything that made them special as it is.

    Likewise, all Trios should get a shared Signature Move (Like the Musketeers and Sacred Sword). It gets tricky with the Beasts and the Regis, though. They all can have a Move based on their Master, though (Fire or Flying for the Beasts, and Normal for the Regis). All Event Legendaries could use a Signature Move too. That leaves only Mew and Celebi as it is, though.

    Yeah, I'd like to see every Legendary having Signature Moves. If Mewtwo finally got one this Generation, I can't see why the others shouldn't.

    EDIT: Oh there's the poll. XD
    lol I got bored.

    Every starter should get one. The Gen III starters had them until Gen IV. But all of them should get one each suited to do what the user does best.

    And the Gen III ones should recieve powerboosts to their former signature moves(Only they get the boost and not other Pokemon who gained said moves in Gen IV) so that they become pseud-exclusive to them.

    Every family should get an exclusive move learned at a late level. As in, Lv 60 for the basic stage, Lv 70 for the second, and Lv 80 for the third, in a three stage family. Also, the moves should be very powerful.

    I'd be happy with just Weezing getting a signature move. Cause it's my favorite and stuff.

    Honestly, the Beldum evolution line needs a better signature move than "Meteor Mash".

    Maybe a new ability is in order, possibly "Assimilate" which would invole a member of the Beldum evolution line, and another pokemon from the same line.
    Beldum = 25% increase on all stats.
    Metang = 50% increase on all stats.
    Metagross = 100% increase on all stats.
    (All excluding accuracy and evasion)

    Or a signature move "Decimate(decimation)"
    Type: Psychic
    Damage: 140
    Accuracy: 100
    Description: User launches a beam of intense light in an attempt to destroy foe. Reduces User's Special Attack.

    Meteor Mash =/= signature move. Clefairy could learn it in Gen III too.

    But they should get one nevertheless. Same thing would be true for the Bagon line. Something along the lines of Headbutt, just stronger. Head Smash for one could've worked ...

    Farfetch'd/Dunsparce/Qwilfish should get one too, just to give the player an incentive to actually use them.

    For the rest, starters and legendaries who not yet have one.

    Meteor Mash is a really good move.

    If oly 2 or 3 pokemon can learn a move, I consider it a signature move of those families.

    I think it's great as is, only certain families with obvious abilities getting one, as well as most legendaries. I think it would be nice for more legendaries to get them, though.

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    They DO have signature moves. Hydro Blast, Blast Burn, and the grass move.

    I'd like to see ditto get a signature move, maybe a status move or a healing one? It would really change ditto, but it would add a lot of usefulness (sorta).

    This is what I believe shall happen. All non-Legendaries who gain a signature move will eventually lose it as its signature move when other unrelated Pokemon learn it. All Legendaries will retain their signature moves until GameFreak does something further with Legendaries (and Smeargle will always be able to copy moves but not actually learn them).

    That being said, Game Freak will continue to implement Pokemon (nL) with signature family moves and implement others (L) with other signature moves. Eventually, all nL Pokemon will lose their signature moves while all L retain theirs.
