Help finding any unidentified moves besides the ones the Playerking95 has pointed out recently would be good.

This page details all the times in the anime where a move has been used and never named. Moves such as Swift and Hyper Beam can easily be identified but it can't be determined weather a Water type move is Water Gun, Brine or Hydro Pump.

In the main series

It was not explained as to whether or not it was Slam, Rage, Constrict, etc.
Giant Tentacruel Slam.png
020Raticate.png Cassidy's Raticate The Fortune Hunters Raticate charges into the opponent and the opponent is knocked back.
No command was given, so it is unknown if the move was Tackle, Take Down, etc.
694Helioptile.png Alexa's Helioptile The Journalist from Another Region! Helioptile spreads its frills and charges electricity. A stream of electricity fires from the tip of its tail towards the opponent.
The move wasn't specified if it was Parabolic Charge, Thunder Shock, or Discharge.

675Pangoro.png A wild Pangoro So You're Having a Bad Day! Pangoro's claws glow white and it slashes at the opponent.
The move was never named; there is no way of telling weather it was Scratch, Slash, False Swipe, etc.
136Flareon.png A Flareon in Shauna's fantasy Tag Team Battle Inspiration! Flareon releases a stream of fire from its mouth which spirals round in circles.
While the move resembles Fire Spin, Pokémon have been shown using Flamethrower and achieving the same effect.
471Glaceon.png A Glaceon in Shauna's fantasy Tag Team Battle Inspiration! Glaceon forms many shards of ice around its body and shoots them at the opponent.
The move looks like Ice Shard, not entirely sure why it isn't.
135Jolteon.png A Jolteon in Shauna's fantasy Tag Team Battle Inspiration! Jolteon releases a stream of electricity into the air and it crashes downwards with a thunderous sound. ThunderShock, Thunderbolt and Thunder have practically identical animations, although Thunder is often depicted going into the sky and then coming down.
134Vaporeon.png A Vaporeon in Shauna's fantasy Tag Team Battle Inspiration! Vaporeon is consumed in water and tackles the opponent while submerged.
Bears resemblance to Aqua Jet but Vaporeon cannot use that moves. No Pokémon in the anime had ever used a move they can't learn in the games.
286Breloom.png A wild Breloom A Windswept Encounter! Breloom fires brown seeds with a green outline that explode on impact at the opponent.
Seed Bomb and Leech Seed share identical animations, at least until Leech Seed can hit the ground and create it vines. The move was used aggressively and aimed at the opponent rather than in front of them but its still unconfirmed.
194Wooper.png A wild Wooper A Diamond in the Rough! Wooper releases a stream of water from it's mouth at the opponent.
It was not explained as to whether or not it was Water Gun, Hydro Pump, or Brine.
734Yungoos.png
Ally Yungoos To Top a Totem! Yungoos shoot an aura in the shape of their teeth at the opponent and it bites them.
The animation resembles how Bite has usually worked in the Sun & Moon series and was shown alongslide Gumshoos using Bite, however the move is unconfirmed as Crunch, Hyper Fang and Super Fang would likely have the same or a similar animation.
020Raticate-Alola.png
019Rattata-Alola.png
Totem Raticate
Ally Raticate and Ally Rattata
A Team-on-Team Tussle! Raticate and Rattata shoot an aura in the shape of their teeth at the opponent and it bites them.
The animation resembles how Bite has usually worked in the Sun & Moon series, however the move is unconfirmed as Crunch, Hyper Fang and Super Fang would likely have the same or a similar animation.
755Morelull.png
756Shiinotic.png
Morelull and Shiinotic Lulled to La-La Land! Morelull/Shiinotic shudders and mult-coloured spores burst from the mushrooms on its head.
It was left ambiguous as to whether or not this move was Spore or Sleep Powder.
755Morelull.png
Morelull Lulled to La-La Land! Morelull latches onto the opponent. Its legs glow a faint green and it drains energy from the target.
While this does not resemble Absorb, Mega Drain or Giga Drain from previous series, moves such as Rock Tomb have been shown to function very differetnly between uses. Another possibility is Strength Sap.
074Geodude-Alola.png
Geodude Treasure Hunt, Akala Style! Geodude launches into the air and is surrounded by a white aura. It then slams into the opponent.
While the move resembles how Double-Edge has been shown in previous serieses, it is far to ambiguos to be confirmed any one move, for example Facade could have been the move.
569Garbodor.png
Garbodor Treasure Hunt, Akala Style! Garbodor shoots, from the holes on its hands, globs of sludge at the opponent.
The animation resembles Sludge Bomb.
569Garbodor.png
Garbodor Treasure Hunt, Akala Style! Garbodor shoots, from its mouth, globs of sludge that faintly glow yellow at the opponent.
The animation resembles Sludge Bomb and the colour resembles Acid Spray as it appeared in the Best Wishes series.
594Alomomola.png
Ally Alomomola Big Sky, Small Fry! Alomomola shoots a stream of water at the opponent.
This move could either be Hydro Pump or an illegitimate Water Gun. Although, we've always assumed the move the Pokemon actually could learn before any errors, nobody had a problem with this until a certain user starting shooting their mouth off.
