If I transfer Duskull or Kecleon from the Dream World to X/Y, will their ability

...change to Frisk/Protean? (stupid 80 character limit)

Why? Does it not work with Starly?

Theoretically they should, if they occupy the hidden ability slot.

It might not let you make the transfer, but it's worth a shot.

Kecleon definitely won't. Duskull might if it has the hidden ability flag set. You'd have to evolve it to know, though. But you might not be able to transfer a pokemon with its normal ability and the hidden ability flag set.

But abilities are reset when a pokemon evolves, not at any other point. So a Kecleon would never get Protean even if it had its flag set, because it doesn't evolve.

That said, did the Dream World even generate pokemon with the hidden ability flag on if the pokemon didn't have a hidden ability?

Are pokemon actually able to lose their hidden abilities from other games? I though X/Y had them in-game too.

These are pokemon that didn't have hidden abilities in Gen V and gained them in Gen VI.

Why would one succeed, but not the other?

The change would occur upon evolution. Duskull can evolve. Kecleon can't.
