So I brought a female togedemaru with the egg move wish and put it with my male eevee, and all eggs are togedemaru, I wanted eevee tho.
What’s wrong?

The egg is always dictated by the mother's species (or non-Ditto parent, if Ditto is being used). This means that in order to get an Eevee egg, the Eevee or its evolution must be the female, or else a male Eevee can be used with Ditto but Ditto won't be able to pass down any egg moves. Given Eevee's skewed gender ratio, this is a deliberate design decision that has always been in place to make it more difficult to get Eevee eggs, along with other species such as starters, Snorlax, and Lucario.

Oooohhhh ok, thanks!
Also, the male eevee has its HA, can I pass that down if I bred it with the female?
Only the mother's ability (again, or non-Ditto parent's) is relevant. What you would have to do is leave the male Eevee and a Ditto in the daycare until you end up with a female that keeps the HA, then you can use that. If you try to catch another Eevee instead, and it happens to be a female without HA, putting both Eevees in the day care together will give you eggs that have exactly 0% chance to get Anticipation despite the father having it.

The baby will always be the same species as the female. If you don't understand breeding mechanics I'd recommend this site's page on it.
