The Stripped-Down Breeding FAQ.
Arranged by Cat-Gonk.
I'd also like to make it clear that none of this information was discovered by myself, I just got it all from other people and put it together for my site and for my own collection of Pokemon data. The clever people who actually did the hard work for this FAQ are listed at the bottom of this text file.

The Spearows and the Beedrills (in brief).
Any breedable Pokemon can be bred any move that it learns naturally or through TM, as well as the moves listed below.
Two Pokemon can be bred by giving the male to the old man and the female to the old woman in the Daycare south of Kogane. After a period of time determined by how much walking you do and the willingness of the two Pokemon to get it on (tip, same body types generally means higher sex drive), an egg will have been laid (though some Pokemon appear to be mammals). The old man will be standing outside, talk to him and he'll give you the egg. Warning, this is not RBY, you need a space in your lineup to accept the egg.
The egg will hatch if you carry it around and walk with it. They take some time, which is why breeding chains are often a bad idea and you're better off just buying a Gameshark if you really must have Acid Armour on Magcargot.
There is a chance that of one of the moves that the baby can be bred with is on the father, the baby, being the same specie as the mother, may be born with it in its abilities. Voltorb, Staryu, Magnemite and Porygon are genderless, and therefore cannot breed. Ditto breeds with anything with a resultant offspring of the Pokemon it bred with.
Names were taken from Necrosaro's list, with a few of my own translations in there, ie Mind's Eye for the lock-on move Poliwrath learns, View Thoughts for the move that lets normal/fighting attacks his ghost types as well as negating all Accuracy changers.
Painful Note refers to the move learnt by Poliwag/whirl which imparts an x10 multiplier to Attack at the cost of 50% HP. The AGNP name for this move is Shave Pounds, and I've also heard it referred to as Heart Song.
If you have any queries, e-mail me at email@example.com and I'll do my best to answer. You're best off going to Azure Heights, Pokemon Forever and Pokemon Daily first (the last two URLs escape me but they should be on http://www.azureheights.com somewhere)

Kudos to Meowth346 for being able to make and interpret ROMs so damn well, though he did have Houou learning Shadow Ball at one stage. All this info is his, cut right from the ROM.
A merry MEEH to Necrosaro, who wrote the first ever complete English GS moves list, and provided a foundation for the translations.
Thankies to Darryn, who provided this information, helping with the translation-translations (not everyone has the same translation for certain moves) when I couldn't figure out what names he'd given to what, and for all the work he's put into Gold/Silver during his time in the AH Research Forum. I expect to see him and Givera made Azurians when GS is released in English, their position on the forums should give them first pick at research topics.
