HA Breeding Question

#1danielfox24Posted 1/13/2014 10:55:33 PM
Hi i was wondering, when breeding a Hidden ability pokemon with a ditto, are males and females equally likely to pass down the HA or are females higher chance? thanks!

Only male ha can use ditto

Females still require a non ditto

Yes, they are equally likely. It's a 60% chance to pass down the hidden ability whether you use a Ditto or not.

thats like the complete opposite lol

females pass down the ability, breeding with dittos anyone can pass it down and it looks to me like equal chance for both genders

Here's how it works:

Female HA + male or Ditto = 60% chance to pass down the female's hidden ability, 40% chance to pass down the female's other ability (or 20% for each if she has two regular abilities)
Male HA + Ditto = See above, but replace female with male. 60% for HA; 40% or 20/20% for other abilities
Regular female + male or Ditto = 80% to pass down female's ability if she has two abilities, 20% to pass down her other ability. Obviously 100% if she only has one ability
Regular female + male HA = See above. 0% chance to pass down male's HA

I think people just generally make up stuff about breeding because they don't know the answer to the question, then others pick it up and start spreading it around.

At least I know what I'm talking about.
