Hordes and how to tell who has the hidden ability?

#1kk4176Posted 10/19/2013 7:30:46 AM
Is there a way to know if one of the pokemon in a horde has a hidden ability and which one?

Not really. There are abilities that have a message popping up or take visible effect(Mold Breaker and Intimidate for example) and Trace can tell you the ability of one of them too, but not which one.

You can test them if you have the right ability, such as using Rain Dance to see if a Poliwag has Swift Swim. Or you could use Skill Swap on all of them until you find one.

Rain dance for rain dish wingull

Toxic for immunity gligar

Sweet scent for contrary spinda ect
Witch helps kill off the non contrary ones if you use a multi target attack after boosting the contrary one up enough to avoid it
