PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I'm trying to breed for a female scorbunny that knows Libero (for other breeding purposes) by using a male cinderace and ditto, but the HA isn't passing down, I keep getting Blaze instead. Could someone tell me why?

I'm not sure if it's something that you have to keep trying for or if what you get is definite, that's why I saved in front of the Pokemon nursery.

P.S Also not sure if this impacts the passing down of HAs or not, but the Cinderace is holding an everstone, it has pokerus, it's lower level than the ditto (like 4 levels) and I got him from transferring from Pokemon Home.

Thanks :)

I don't know too much about breeding but what is the parent Cinderace's ability?
Parent Cinderace has Libero
Okay. (filler)

Since Generation VI, it is possible for male Pokémon, as well as Pokémon species with unknown gender (such as Magnemite) to pass down their Ability if bred with a Ditto, in which case it has a 60% chance to pass down its Hidden Ability. They cannot pass down a Hidden Ability when bred with any Pokémon other than Ditto. Ditto's Ability is always irrelevant to inheritance.So,you are getting unlucky,as you only have a 60 percent chance to get a hidden ability on the offspring.Also,everstone,pokerus,and having your cinderace at a lower level doesn't affect the chance to get an HA.
I hope I've helped!

Yes you have helped, thank you :) think on my 3rd reset i got one with Libero so I've just been trying to get a female since then. Fingers crossed when I finally do get one she doesn't have Blaze instead

Resetting repeatedly is an inefficient breeding technique. You should just fill your party with eggs, so you can run down the steps on five eggs at a time instead of one.
