EDIT: I've added the reasons as to why each Pokemon listed above has illegal move(s).

Was Brave Bird Crobat not a thing in Gen V?
I wanna be a Cooltrainer.
"While Crobat can know both of these moves individually, it could not know both simultaneously at the time. Crobat can only learn these moves as Egg Moves, but the only Flying Egg Group Pokémon, other than the Crobat family, that can learn Hypnosis are the Hoothoot family, Sigilyph, and the Pidove family, which cannot learn Brave Bird."

Crobat can learn Brave Bird in Gen V, but it cannot learn both Brave Bird and Hypnosis at the same time.
I'll edit my answer so that it has the reasons that Pokemon can't have a move or combination of moves, too.
My bad. I'll edit the BW2 entries. You can do the rest
