If a Male Vaporeon with Water Pulse was bred with a Female Vaporeon, the move would not be inherited
Head over to Darkshade’s official guide to see the groups in pretty detail, or use Bulbapedia(or other fan site) to look up specific Pokemon.
This aspect of breeding has pretty much remained unchanged from the handhelds. Assuming the two species are compatible(see Egg Groups), then the baby Pokemon will always be that of the mother. This will be the female parent in almost all cases, with the exception being breeding with Ditto, where the Ditto will be considered the mother, regardless of who the partner is. Ditto can breed with any species, including Genderless Pokemon, but excluding Undiscovered Pokemon and other Ditto. Again, see the Egg Group section for more details. There are some exceptions, which are due to two different species being a part of the same species chain. Illumise/Volbeat, Nidoran(f/m), etc.
- In the case of two Pokemon of the same species, quite obviously, the offspring will be that species.
- In the case of two different species of Pokemon, whichever species is female will be the species of the offspring e.g., a male Abra and a female Machop will produce a Machop.
- In the case of the female species not being the lowest stage of evolution, the baby will be that species but at the lowest stage of evolution (excluding incense breeding) e.g., a male Jigglypuff and a female Clefairy will produce a Cleffa.
- In the case of incense breeding, female Wobbuffets will produce Wobbufffets unless they are holding Lax Incense, in which case they will produce Wynaut. The same goes for female Marill/Azumarill, which will produce Azurill when holding a Sea Incense.
- In the case of Genderless or Male Pokemon breeding with a Ditto, the offspring will always be Ditto’s partner and never a baby Ditto.
