I've wanted a Rapid-Spin Intimidate Hitmontop set, but every time I evolve my Tyrogue, the ability is Technician. I was wondering, is my Hitmontop's ability predetermined from when I got the Tyrogue? Any help is appreciated :D
Yes. Ability 1 will always develop into Ability 1, and Ability 2 will always develop into Ability 2.
Your Tyrogue has Guts, Ability 1. Therefore, it gets Hitmontop's Ability 1, Intimidate. If you wanted Technician, you need a Steadfast Tyrogue. --- Pokemon Black FC: 4470 1013 1751 Pokemon Pearl FC: 4942 5627 6687
