My English is not good, please forgive me.

I want to get Bagon with Dragon Dance and EQ but... How to do it? Bagon learns Dragon Dance only by breeding from few Pokemons, like Altaria. Where's the problem? Altaria learns Earthquake by TM but Swablu doesn't. So every time I breed my Gible (with EQ) with Altaria, my Swablu don't have it. I'm stuck here, please help! I don't want to use TM.

Edit: I have Pokemon Platinum

You see your gible can learn EQ yes that is correct but when breeding with an Altaria nothing happens. See in order for your Swablu to have EQ when breeding it must be an egg move. Egg moves are moves that Pokemon can have when hatched if the parent Pokemon knows it. EQ is not an egg move for Sawblu so no matter how many times you breed it will never learn it. Now you can however breed Dragon Dance onto your gible because Dragon Dance is a egg move for Gible.
I hoped this helped :D

Austin, he wants a bagon. I think. Or maybe a gible. Idk
Yes, of course, i want a bagon
Dragon Dance is not an Egg Move for Gible :P

This is how I got my Dragon Dance Bagon.

Step 1: Catch a male Horsea / Seadra.
Step 2: Level it up until it learns Dragon Dance. I recommend using Horsea, not Seadra, as it learns it 10 levels earlier in Gen IV.
Step 3: Catch a female Bagon.
Step 4: Put the two in the dragon love nest.
Step 5: Keep breeding until you get the Bagon you want — discard the rest.
Step 6: Evolve your little Bagon into a Salamence and teach it Earthquake vie TM. This saves you a lot of breeding time.

Yes, using a TM saves a lot of time but i don't want to use it
But… Earthquake isn't an Egg Move for Bagon…
Pokemon can learn move which he can learn by TM if his father know it
