Right I'm looking to get Crobat to learn Giga Drain, Nasty Plot, Air Slash and Sludge Bomb. Sludge bomb and Air Slash can be done with a tm and level up respectively what I want to know is how to breed giga drain and nasty plot?

First of all, Crobat is in the Flying egg group which means it can't get Giga Drain (in gen 6) because non of the Pokemon that learn it by level up are in the Flying egg group.

Honchkrow learns Nasty Plot at level 35 and is the flying egg group so just breed a female Crobat with a Male Honchkrow that has Nasty Plot and the offspring Crobat should have Nasty Plot.

Crobat can learn Nasty Plots by following these simple steps:

  1. Get a male Honchkrow with Nasty Plot, it gets the move at level 35
  2. Breed it with a female Zubat/Golbat/Crobat and get the egg
  3. Hatch the egg and it should know Nasty Plot

Sadly though, Crobat can learn Giga Drain only if you teach it the move via move tutor in Pokemon Black 2 / White 2. But now in X/Y Giga drain is an egg move, here are the Pokemon you should breed it with to get the move:
Zubat, Golbat, Crobat, Natu, Xatu, Woobat or Swoobat that already know the move; however none of them learn it naturally, there are only two ways to get that move into any of the mentioned Pokemon:

  1. Make them learn it via TM in generations 3/4
  2. Make them learn it via move tutor in generation 5

And then transfer them to your X/Y game, breed and then you can get a Crobat with Giga Drain.

So if you don't have the game, you cannot get it yourself, only ask others to who have the game to do it for you.

Hope I helped!

Move tutor exclusive moves don't pass down via breeding.
Giga Drain is an egg move in X/Y for Crobat :P
But it's donors only get that via move tutors, so yeah it's somewhat impossible in-game
Oh right sorry, I misunderstood the meaning.
Now that you look at it...
I think I should mention this in my answer, to make it easier to understand
