I'm pretty sure evolving a Pokemon changes the outcome of breeding only if the Pokemon changes egg groups.

sumwun is correct.
A Pokemon's current state of evolution does not affect the stats of its offspring. However, you will not be able to breed certain Pokemon unless they are or are not evolved:
For example, Nidoran female can breed with anything in the Field, Monster, or Ditto egg-group but its evolutions cannot. Baby Pokemon, including Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Elekid, Magby, Azurill, Wynaut, Budew, Chingling, Bonsly, Mime Jr., Happiny, Munchlax, Riolu, and Mantyke all cannot breed until they evolve.

The stats of a Pokemon are affected by Individual Values (IVs), Effort Values (EVs), and Natures. When breeding, the offspring will inherit 3 IVs for different stats from a random parent, and the other three IVs will be chosen randomly. You can breed for specific stats using certain parents and items.

Since I'm not sure what game you are playing, I will offer the link for a general guide on breeding as a whole rather than a guide for a specific generation. I suggest you read through Bulbapedia's page on breeding here.
Knowledge is priceless, my friend.

omg bro youre the best!! but just for confirmation, will it be better if i breed salamence to salamence than bagon to bagon?
How quickly you get eggs and the stats of the resulting Pokemon will be no different between Bagon and Bagon than between Salamence and Salamence. So either one is good. If you want egg-moves however, you should opt for a different species male in the Dragon egg-group. Here is a list of all of Bagon's egg-moves and compatible parents:
Now go forth and conquer!
ofc bro i will!! thankyouuu!! another favor, can u answer my another question or more like suggestion what could be the best competitive lineup(lvl50cap)? 6th gen thanks!
Can you call me "sumwun" instead of "Sumwun"? Thanks.
Whoops, sorry. I knew that but I must have been on autopilot.
Btw, sadness, I'm not very good at competitive questions, but there are plenty of skilled and kind people here who can answer.
