Pokemon Special Abilities

When you breed a Pokemon with its special ability, does the subsequent hatched Pokemon from this breeding get that special ability?

Not always.

If the mother has the hidden ability, there is a 60% chance the baby will have it.
And if you breed with a Ditto, it will NOT have the special ability.

And if the mother doesn't have the hidden ability, the baby never will, even if the father has it. If the mother has a regular ability, the baby has an 80% chance of having that ability and 20% of having the other ability (if there are two). If there's only one normal ability, of course it will always have that.

If you breed with Ditto and the Pokemon normally has two normal abilities, the chance will be 50% of either, no matter the mom's ability.

And this pertains to BW2 only. BW1 had random abilities for babies, and only a 40% chance to get the hidden ability on a baby from a mother who had it, and a non-Ditto father iirc.
