How do you know if your pokemon has a Hidden Ability?

Just got given a dream world dratini and now I'm breeding to get better IVs how do you know if it has the Hidden Ability? I've looked around the internet and can't find anything. Also don't understan how it can be hidden?

Thanks,

Steven

Does it have Marvel Scale? Then congratulations, it has its Hidden Ability.

Does it have Shed Skin? So sorry, better breed another.

How much more complicated does it have to be?

Well I haven't had a one with a Hidden Ability so I didn't realise that is just said it. I assumed as it was called 'Hidden' that you wouldn't be able to see it. Thanks anyway

DW Dratini should have it's hidden ability.

They're called "Hidden" abilities because of the difficulty in getting them (most that are available now can only be obtained from the Dream World, or by breeding Pokemon from it, and most Pokemon's Hidden abilities are not legitimately available at all yet), not because they're "hidden" on the Pokemon.

The only reasons they're not universally called "Dream World" abilities are because a) you can get a Darmanitan and Musharna with their hidden abilities in-game, and b) the Dream World is currently completely incompatible with fifth-gen Pokemon.

And there is a great deal of speculation that Dream World wont be the only way to gain hidden abilities. Events, prizes from spin-off games, RSE remakes, etc etc etc are all ways that GF could 'release' a Pokemon with its new ability.

By chance, is your dratini a male?

or

are you breeding with a ditto?

Either one will not pass on the DW ability.
