What can you do if you hatch a shiny without its HA?
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? Kurutto - 2 weeks ago
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.

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! Kurutto - 2 weeks ago
Good to know you managed to get it on the first try ^^ Axews - 2 weeks ago

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. shinryu_omega (Expert) - 2 weeks ago
