What can you do if you hatch a shiny without its HA?

  1. I am hatching competitive Snoms with perfect IVs and its Hidden Ability (HA), Ice Scales. I am afraid I’ll get the shiny, but it won’t have Ice Scales.

    What would I do if that happened?

  1. Legally, you can't do anything. While Ability Capsule exists, it can only change ability to the other common one (so it can't give a Hidden Ability or take it away).

    If you hatch a non-HA shiny Snom, you can do two things:

    - Keep hatching, until you get another shiny Snom, hopefully with Ice Scales. You can use your non-HA one for trading too (legal)

    - Find a genner who would "tweak" your Snom so it'll have Ice Scales (illegal)

    I don't doubt you know how to breed, but make sure a female/non-Ditto parent has Ice Scales. HA has around 60% chance of passing down.

    Hopes it helped! ^^

  2. Thank you for such a detailed answer!

    I think posting this question actually gave me good luck, as I managed to hatch one with Ice Scales a few minutes ago!

  1. You can't change to or from a HA, so if you really want a shiny with the HA, you unfortunately just need to keep breeding and get lucky.
