As far as I know, there is no way for an Eidolon to obtain the "Grapple" trait on one of their attacks.

A level one Summoner is granted an Eidolon and has the ability to choose from one of the following for their primary form of attack

  • 1d8 damage (disarm, nonlethal, shove, or trip)
  • 1d6 damage (fatal d10)
  • 1d6 damage (forceful and sweep)
  • 1d6 damage (deadly d8 and finesse)

Along with these attacks, the Eidolon is also granted a single option for a secondary attack:

  • 1d6 damage (agile and finesse).

At level twelve the summoner can pick up a Class Feat called "Grasping Limbs" which reads: "Your eidolon grabs enemies. Choose one of the eidolon's unarmed attacks with the grapple trait. It gains the Grab action (Bestiary 343) on that unarmed attack.

How would a Summoner/Eidolon be able to make use of the Class Feature "Grasping Limbs" if they are unable to acquire an attack with the "Grapple" trait?

The Advanced Weaponry Feat (level 1) allows you to give your Eidolon's primary melee attack the choice of one of the following traits: disarm, grapple, nonlethal, shove, trip, or versatile bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing.
