(I’m on X and Y) So I want to have a Lillipup with Adamant nature for a Retaliate Revenge Killer. I want it’s Hidden ability which is Run Away.(Later turns in Scrappy when fully evolved) So I was breeding a female Lillipup(has Hidden Ability and was holding Everstone for Adamant nature)with a Ditto with 6 Iv’s (Destiny Knot)then I got this Lillipup with Max Iv’s on Hp, Attack,Defense, Sp. Defense, and Speed. Problem is that it doesn’t have its hidden ability.
It’s a male so I was thinking can I breed this Flawless Lillipup(holding Destiny Knot)with a Female Lillipup with its Hidden ability(Holding Everstone, Max Iv’s on Hp Atk, Sp.Atk, Sp.Def, and Spd) to get more chances of getting the Iv’s and Hidden Ability that I want? Isn’t it in the same egg groups so that the female can pass the Hidden Ability?(Sorry If I don’t explain myself good)

Overall, it looks fine to me. The only thing you will need now is time and a little bit of luck. You have a 60% chance of passing down hidden abilities if a female, or a male breeding with Ditto., so all you need is for the Destiny Knot to pass down the right combination of IV's. The only thing I would change is that you should breed with the Ditto instead since it has 6 perfect IV's.

A hidden ability has a 60% chance of being passed down by a female, and a 60% chance of being passed down by a male if you're breeding with Ditto. From what you said, I believe that you had poor luck in not getting the hidden ability. For IVs, you should breed with Ditto, as it has all 5 perfect IVs that you need. The hidden ability chance is the same either way. I hope I helped!
