Hidden abilities are gained through Dream World or Hidden Grottos, and are only available in Gen V games.

Normal abilities are the ones you can get by catching a Pokemon in-game (except in Hidden Grottos).

A Hidden Ability can only be obtained from a Hidden Grotto or the Dream World, thus, they are also called Dream World Abilitys.
