PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Hi everyone!

I am transferring all my Pokemon from my old games to Home. I ran into a problem when I was transferring Pokemon from Soulsilver to White. I got most of them transferred but I got an error message on a handful that said I can't transfer Pokemon with Hidden Abilities. How do I get rid of these Hidden Abilities or reset the Pokemon or whatever to transfer my remaining Pokemon to White and eventually to Home? Any help would be really appreciated!

Thank you!


How did you get these Pokemon?
Hidden Abilities didn’t exist in Soul Silver. How did you get some? :P

Assuming HAs did exist in Soul Silver, you could breed your Pokémon so they don’t have HAs, unless you want to keep the original ones. :P
I misspoke lol. It's not an HA but an HM that is causing the problem in SoulSilver. How do I get rid of the HMs on my Pokemon so I can transfer them?
Which specific Pokemon are they?

A Move Deleter (Japanese: わすれオヤジ Forgetting Man) is a person who, for no charge, will make a Pokémon forget a move it knows. They are the counterparts to the Move Reminder, often found in the same location.

Tthe Move Deleter is the only way for a Pokémon to forget HM moves such as Cut or Fly besides exploiting the Day Care. This is particularly useful for transferring Pokémon from Generations III or IV to the following generation via Pal Park or Poké Transfer, since Pokémon cannot know any HM moves when they are transferred.

Move Deleters can be found in the following locations:
Blackthorn City: House west of the Poké Mart

By the way, there's no HM for whirlpool in gen 5. If you want your Pokemon to know whirlpool, then you need to trade them to DPPt (where whirlpool isn't a HM) and then transfer it.
