PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I was breeding for a Shiny Charmander with a Blaze Charizard and a Limber Ditto... I got a couple Solar Power Charmanders, though very few (point being I bred a hidden ability onto a Pokemon where the mother did not have it). I also thought that DexNav encounters were the only way to find hidden ability Pokemon, and Y does not have DexNav. If the answer to my original question is yes, what is the chance?

You could try encountering Swinubs in hordes. You can try using a weak ice attack on all of them and catch the ones that take less damage.
wait a minute

You can't find hordes of those in XY silly salmon
Yeah, you can't find Swinub or Piloswine hordes in XY. Sorry.
sorry this has nothing to do with the question but did you just call Sumwun a silly salmon
That's my new diss phrase.
Yes, I called it Silly salmon.. there's a bunch of "diss phrases" that use animals and rhyme though..

Depends on the method. If you just use the Friend Safari, you might find it. If you find it in the wild, never.

Heavy Balls aren't in X/Y. Also, Piloswine and Swinub aren't even in the weight range in which a Heavy Ball would be better for capturing them than a normal Pokeball.
Ok, just try an Ultra Ball.
I mean if I bred a male with a Ditto, the offspring would be in a regular Pokeball, whereas if I used a female caught in an Ultra Ball (my personal favorite), the offspring would be in an ultra ball.

And just remember, finicky means picky to an extreme extent.
