I guess a recent example I can use is Gulpin. I bred a female Gulpin with a male Gengar to teach Gulpin Dream eater, but when it hatched it also had Shadow ball, but this move is not listed under the breeding move set?

Also, I bred female Absol with male Tauros to get Zen headbutt, and when it hatched it had Rest attached but this move is also not listed as a breed move?

I've also noticed the same discrepancy on other online guides, but maybe I'm just missing something ??

You Definately are, when you breed, the Hatched Pokemon can also inherit moves that it can learn by TM. For example, Absol can learn Rest as a TM, which is why it has inherited the move Rest. Same thing with your Gulpin. Hope this helps..

TMs are bred too. If the father knows a TM that the baby can learn the baby will know the TM. Shadow Ball is a TM that Gulpin can learn and Rest is a TM that Absol can learn.

Thanks fellas!
