Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Eevee didn't retain hidden ability?

0 votes

I had caught an Eevee with Adaptability at a friend safari, and then evolved it to Sylveon, expecting a Pixilate Sylveon. But after it evolved, it had Cute Charm instead. Why is this?

Because (from what I believe) Pokemon with Hidden Ability can only be found in dream world, horde, etc. I think evolving Pokemon from normal ability (and posibility HA) will not result in Pokemon with Hidden Ability. Also, their Hidden Ability is quite different.
And this information is because I haven't got 3DS to play either X or Y. So maybe there is a flaw in my theory.

Because Eevee's hidden ability is Anticipation not Adaptability. So you need to have an Eevee with Anticipation to get Pixilate Sylveon otherwise you'll keep ending up with Cute Charm.
