Hidden Abilities and Breeding in X?

0 votes

So I want a Honchkrow that has Moxie, which is its hidden ability. How do I get this ability if Murkrow dosnt have Moxie? If I have a perfect IV Murkrow and evolve it, will it get Moxie if Murkrow has the Hidden Ability?

You will get a Moxie Honchkrow if Murkrow has its Hidden Ability, which is Prankster. In order to get a Prankster Murkrow you will need to find it in a horde battle in XY (it cannot be obtained with its HA in ORAS). Do this by using Entrainment on the hordes until you find a Murkrow with Prankster. When you evolve this Murkrow into Honchkrow, it will have Moxie.

Breeding two Pokemon with normal abilities will never result in a Pokemon with a hidden ability.
To breed a Pokemon with a hidden ability, the female Pokemon (or a male/genderless Pokemon being bred with a ditto) must have its hidden ability. It will have a 60% chance of passing on the hidden ability.
This does, unfortunately, mean you'll need to catch or trade for a Pokemon of the right species with the hidden ability to begin with.

Sorry, but you have no chance of getting a hidden ability if you dont already have it.
