Sturdy is Carbink's hidden ability. The chances of getting a hidden ability through S.O.S. rises as the chain increases. It may take a while, as the chances are pretty slim. You may want to have a Pokémon with the ability Trace, so you will know if it is has Sturdy or not. Just throwing a PokeBall randomly and hoping it is HA is not the way to go. In short, you will have to complete a chain.

Here are the chances of getting a hidden ability Carbink

Chain length of 0 to 9: 0% chance of Hidden Ability
Chain length of 10 to 19: 5% chance of Hidden Ability
Chain length of 20 to 29: 10% chance of Hidden Ability
Chain length of 30 to 255: 15% chance of Hidden Ability

Or worry seed, roleplay, entrainment, etc. Trace won't work well because you'll have to switch to reactivate it :P
Ok Thanks
Or you can just attack it with a powerful attack. If it doesn't have Sturdy, it goes down, allowing another Carbink to be called. If it does have Sturdy, it'll survive at 1 HP and you'll be able to catch it.
