If the baby learns it by level up, or is listed as learning by egg move then yes.

Some of the Pokemon that learn Stealth Rock by TM in gen 4, now learn it by breeding in gen 5.

That's weird. So why doesn't my Torkoal know Stealth Rocks when i breed it with a Bibarel that knows Stealth Rocks and Yawn?
Torkoal doesn't learn Stealth Rock through breeding.

If any pokemon learns a move in gen III & IV, then is transferred to pokemon black / White then breeds with a pokemon in it's egg group that has that move as an egg move, then the baby will have that move. Ex- I wanted a deino with dark pulse. I got a male seviper on pokemon platinum, used dark pulse & transferred it to black. I bred it with my female deino & BAM a deino with dark pulse.

Hope it helps
