What?

It means either your Banette has an Egg move that can't be obtained on it at the same, or. No I think that's it.

Some moves and abilities come from things like events or the dream world.
Banette has Gunk Shot as a 5th gen egg move (Muk/Swalot).

Um, I'm really not sure as to why that causes it to conflict with any ability though. My guess is that you're using it's dreamworld ability, Cursed Body. The two clearly conflict somehow, so you can't - legally - get them together,

No, you can. Get a female DW Banette, a male Muk/Swalot with Gunk Shot, and breed them.

TC must be trying to use the TM for Gunk Shot, and Bannette can't learn it as a TM, only when it breeds.

I remember in Gen IV that Vulpix couldn't learn the Energy Ball TM, but I had to breed specially to get it.

By TM, do you mean Tutor Move? Because otherwise, your post has a mistake.

By Cotton Shield I assume you mean Cotton Guard. The problem here is that Cotton Guard is an event move. Meaning you can't have egg moves with it. Which Gunk Shot is.

THAT makes sense. I mentioned the dreamworld ability because ability is mentioned in the title. I didn't think of the fact that it'd be "another move" despite the fact that I recognized it as a Showdown error.
