are move tutor moves breedable?

like here is an example

i have a hitmontop with sucker punch (HG move tutor move) if i breed it with ditto would the baby tyrouge come out with sucker punch?

Not unless it is an egg move.

In this case, Tyrogue can't learn Sucker Punch at all, so the only way to get Sucker Punch on a Hitmontop is via the Gen 4 move tutor.

Sorry, but move tutor moves can't pass down on that merit. Only if it's also an egg move on a male or a level-up move on both parents can such a move pass down through breeding.

Interestingly enough, this ignores the precedent Crystal was supposed to have set concerning such moves; Crystal's move tutors could indeed pass down from father to offspring by that merit alone, I really don't see why that changed when move tutors returned in FireRed/LeafGreen and apparently followed FireRed/LeafGreen's lead instead of Crystal's for later tutors...
