PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I found an Araquanid in a Max Raid Battle and thought I should get it since Water Bubble is op. I successfully defeated and caught it, but it had Water Absorb despite it being its Hidden Ability.

use a ability capsule if you dont want it
Ability Patch is the one that changes HAs, not Ability Capsule. Though, it will only change a standard ability to a HA, not the other way around.
You can just breed/catch another one in any case.
Thanks Fizz, it took a while to catch another araquanid but it has water bubble now thanks to your help

The caught Pokémon's moves and Ability will be the same as it was during the Max Raid Battle; some Dynamax Pokémon encountered in Max Raid Battles will have their Hidden Ability.

It's possible to catch Pokemon with Hidden Abilities in Max Raid Dens.
