How do egg moves work?

I'm want to try to get an Eevee with curse, but I don't really understand egg moves. Is there any way to get the egg move you want or is it just a random occurence? I've never even gotten an egg move before on my other breeded pokemon so I'm a little confused.

Male Pokemon pass certain Moves to the Baby. These include TM, HM, and other Moves the Baby can learn. If both parents know a Move the baby learns via Level Up, it will be born with the Move. Filler Moves are from the base Level Up Moves.


For Eevee with Curse:

You'll need a Male Torkoal, Bidoof, or Bibarel with Curse and a Female Eevee (or Eevee-lution) for the easiest way.

Certain traits can be passed down by parents to their offspring. The mother determines which pokemon hatches from the egg (aside from ditto) and has a 50% chance of passing her nature onto the Egg if she's holding an "Everstone."

However, Egg Moves are something that only the father can exclusively give. So if the move you want to pass is on a female, it'll be impossible. That's most likely your issue. And very few moves can be transferred by breeding. Any move tutor skill is basically nulled as well.

Curse can be transferred, but can be difficult. The easiest way I can think of would be by breeding a Male Bibarel Level 53+ In HG/SS/Plat ONLY with a female Eevee/Eevee Evolution.
