Hidden ability in Kalos?

Ok, in my understanding you get hidden abilities by sending Pokemon to the dream world. But couldn't you only get to the dream world in Unova?

Please correct me if I'm wrong 'cause I really need Protean.

In Unova , Dream World is not the only way .
Hi Sceptile. There's also the Hidden Grotto in B2W2 actually.
Hi Waterninja. Without being able to friend safaris, I would suggest just trying your luck out on GTS. Put up a "rare" Pokemon you can get/breed (Beldum is my favorite, though Kangaskhan or Gen 2-5 starters are pretty OK) for a Frokaie, repeat until you get a Protean one. Another is you can just luck out on Wonder Trade. I know I get a lot of Froakies there and I don't even want them since I already have my comptitive Greninja ready. Some of the wonder trade Froakies turn out to be Protean.

In Pokemon X and Y, the only way to get a hidden ability Pokemon is by capturing one in the Friend Safari or in Horde encounters.

The Friend Safari is the better option because you have a much higher chance of actually finding a hidden ability Pokeomon than you do in horde encounters (in hordes you have a puny 5% chance of finding a hidden ability Pokemon), but some Pokemon can only be found in the Friend Safari, Some can only be found in hordes and some...in neither.

The third option is to transfer a hidden ability Pokemon from a generation 5 game.

-You can either trade with someone
- or breed - But I am guessing you don't have a Protean Pokemon
-or via Friend Safari
