When you say if it wasn’t taught by TM, do you mean the move is normally learnt by the Pokémon but can also be learnt by TM?
Thanks for answering, I posted my reply as a comment to your answer.

The bred Pokémon will inherit the egg move if it fulfils the following requirements:

  1. If the move is listed as an egg move. (You can check the Pokémon’s Egg moves on this website!)
  2. If the father has naturally learned it, even if it can be TM learned.

As long as these requirements are met you should be able to breed the move to the offspring. So, the answer is yes.

First of all, thank you for replying to my question! Replying to your comment, I most certainly do. But I should’ve specified, I was only referring to gen 3 Pokémon breeding. If I am not mistaken, in gen 3, there is a special mechanic where if a Parent Pokémon nows a TM, the offspring will inherit the move. I was just asking if it has to be a move taught via TM. If so, how would the game know, would the  information that it was a TM move be embedded in the data of the move?
