How do you check if your pokemon has a hidden ability?

Are hidden abilities different from the abilities you see in the stats menu? What makes hidden abilities hidden? :p I would like to get Quick Feet for my Jolteon, but I'm not sure how get it, or check if it has it. . .

Don't get so caught in your ways that you can't change.

Look up on Google what the pokemon's hidden ability is.

The only way to get hidden abilities right now is to catch the pokemon in the friend safari or hope one in a horde battle has it. You can then breed for more if you want.

serebii.net seems to have most if not all the hidden abilities already. Keep in mind if you search via google you might see the term "Dream world ability". This is basically the same thing but is a gen 5 term from when the Global link was still being used with x and y (which at this moment it still is but will but shut down in the near future).

I was reading about them at serebii.net, but it mostly talks about the Dream World.

Not sure what it's talking about. :p I just understood the part that only females can pass down hidden abilities? But how do you check if it has a hidden ability?

First off, that's outdated: Males have a chance now, too.
Second, there are one or two Abilities they can have whenever. Occasionally, via horde and/or Friend Safari, you can run into something with an Ability that it can't get otherwise.

For example, Frogadier's standard Ability is Torrent. However, if you run into one in the Friend Safari, it has a chance of having its Hidden Ability, which is Protean.

To clarify, OP: I had this very same confusion. The hidden ability will REPLACE its ability. I always thought the hidden ability was an ability it could have IN ADDITION to its regular one or two. But nope!

So all you have to do is check its summary page and check the ability!
