I just found out about hidden abilities and was wondering how you get Pokémon with them. Also would love to have a male Abra lvl one with the hidden ability if anyone can help me out it would be appreciated
no prob. i didn't know about hidden abilities or dream world till a friend of mine showed me. oh, also, i believe pokemon from the 3DS app, Pokemon Dream Radar have hidden abilities as well. don't remember if all hidden grotto pokemon have them, or if it's just the female pokemon, like in DW.
unfortunately Pokemon Global Link is under extended maintenance till 9pm ET (in the US, at least)
ONLY female pokemon on DW have the hidden ability.
No. Either males or females can have the alternate/'hidden' ability, including Dream World males. It's just that only the females can pass down the ability when breeding.
For Black and White, most of the hidden-ability Pokemon are only available through the Dream World, DW promotions, and trading. Black2/White2 add the ability to get them through Hidden Grottoes, as well as in-game trading and gifts (and, as mentioned, the Dream Radar).
Some are given as Mystery Gift Pokemon, though that's usually only in Japan and a few other countries, not the US, IIRC.

I'm not sure if the restrictions have changed, but with Black/White, you should be able to use almost any Pokemon with the Dream World - the exceptions being any Pokemon that were given new Formes in Black2/White2 (Keldeo, Meloetta, Thundurus, Tornadus, Landorus, Kyurem, etc.), and any Pokemon with an ability that prevents them from going to sleep, IIRC.
The Type of the Pokemon you use has a chance of influencing which areas you'll visit in the Dream World, though I don't remember which Types influence which areas. --- Currently ignoring: Real Life
Akira, when i've been going on DW, when i get to the tree, and it shows some of the pokemon that are sleeping, and i've seen Meloetta, Tornadus, Thundurus, (don't remember if i saw Landorus), Genesect, and Keldeo. i think, at least once, i saw a Deoxys. so event pokemon still apply, just from seeing those pokemon sleeping.
as for what type takes you to what area, check this page: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Dream_World#Island_of_Dreams
it shows how to unlock certain areas in BW and B2W2. it also gives you all info about you'll want to know (dream points, mini-games, etc) hope this helps --- FC: White 2 - 0906 3575 3345 Rene White - 1636 2845 7676 Mouse
I don't know if they ever ruled out event Pokemon.
The Landorus, Keldeo, Meloetta you saw at the Tree could have been from B2W2 users, I don't know. I haven't used my White game with the Dream World since around the time B2W2 was released, and at the time, they weren't allowing you to use the Pokemon I mentioned in Black/White. (Hence why I said I didn't know if they ended that restriction. :) ) --- Currently ignoring: Real Life
