Is it true the only way to get hidden abilitys in sun/moon is to SOS chain?

asked by
Popplio's HA is currently unavailable - I imagine it will very likely be available through a Nintendo event soon though. And SOS chaining seems to be the only way to get Hidden Abilities but I swear there's another way...
There was an Alola starters with hidden abilities event some time ago.
What’s a hidden ability. Also wow this question was a while ago.

You need the Pokémon Bank application for the 3DS family systems. There is an event to get all three starters with their Hidden Abilities. The event started on March 9, 2018, and ends on October 31, 2018. You can still get them until, October 31, 2018. The hard way is SOS chaining.

As of now, you can't get Popplio's hidden ability in any way except through hacking.

u need to have poke bank, but the event is over anyway. once the gen 8 games are released you may be able to use pokebank to transfer to gen 8 and they MAY return the old feature/glitch (were not sure if it was ment to happen, since it was removed) where when you transfer from certain games before gen 3 to another game after gen 4, the starter's ability would be its hidden ability
