In G/S, Staryu has egg moves for Aurora Beam, Barrier, and Supersonic, but these are impossible for it to learn because Staryu is genderless and can only breed with Ditto. (These were removed in Crystal.)

Also, in G/S several Pokémon have egg moves of Charm, Steel Wing, Sweet Scent, or Lovely Kiss. These were also removed in Crystal, because theyre TMs and are already passed through breeding.

I'm deciding to bump this because our affiliates at Legendary Star Blob 2 have their own page about Staryu's egg moves as of recent.

A genderless with egg moves?…fascinating. How DID you LEARN this, though? *shifty eyes*…It must be asked….

You need to use the sketch glitch to get the move on a ditto (Transform into a smeargle, sketch a move) and you can get Staryu egg moves

True, but that is definitely NOT intended behavior.

Do any other genderless Pokemon have egg moves, or is it just Staryu?

A slightly unrelated thing but which may be important: the term "genderless" is misleading because the Pokémon's sex is unknown as opposed to being determined as neither male or female. In Western Stadium 2, there actually seems to be an Egg Group for "gender-unknown" Pokémon, which includes Staryu and Starmie, but core games do not include such an Egg Group.
