PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I've been trying to breed a Male Chimchar with a Ditto with Imposter so I can obtain a Chimchar with its HA being Iron Fist.

In the beginning of this project; I recall that I had the Ditto holding a Power Bracer to pass down the Attack stat as the offspring's Perfect IV and the Destiny Knot for the other parent. I haven't obtain any with the Adamant Nature but I do have Pokemon in the same Breeding Group that do.

I even tried breeding with a Female Chimchar with its standard ability to breed with a Male Fennekin with its HA being Magican, still no Chimchar with Iron Fist.

So far I've got a box full of Chimchars with all of them having their standard ability. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or I'm just unlucky...

I've also considered looking for a Female Chimchar with its HA in the GTS but that didn't provide me any good leads...Also, I don't have access to many Friend Safaris, just have three and none of them interest me...

So in the end I'm kinda feeling stuck... =\

Help and advice be very much appreciated. =]

You can't use a HA Ditto to get HA on other pokemon. Your best bet is to trade for a  HA Chimchar, or take your chances on the GTS.
Friend Safaris don't have HA Chimchars btw, so don't try to look fr them.

Hidden Abilities don't really work like that.

To get an Iron Fist Chimchar, you must do either of the following:

  • Get it from someone else.
  • Breed a female Chimchar with Iron Fist with another member of it's egg group or Ditto.
  • Breed a mle Chimchar with Iron Fist with a Ditto (only in Gen 6 games)

So that effectively means that you should already have a Chimchar with Iron Fist to breed it into another Chimchar.

Hope I helped!
