Can a male with its hidden ability pass it down if the female is same species?

I've passed down froakies hidden ability to multiple babies using a ditto as it's counter part, but when I used a female Froakie that didn't have the hidden ability, I never got one Froakie to come out with protein. Anyone having the same prob?

I've heard reports on serebii stating that the male has a chance to pass down hidden abilities now.

I'm having similar trouble. Trying to breed a male Eevee with the hidden ability with a female Eevee that doesn't. Over 20 eggs and nothing.

I've breed the Event Torchic with a Ditto and got a Speed Boost one on the first try. So it worked for me with the Ditto, haven't tried any else yet.

After experimenting on Ralts and Eevee (with regular abilities) I came with the following:
Ralts: 9/10 had the same ability as the mother
Eevee: 8/10 had the same ability as the mother.

So I guess that the offspring will mostly get their ability from the mother. And I will continue to experiment with Ditto and hidden abilities.

I've hatched over 30 Eevees. Male parent with hidden ability, female parent with Adaptability. 2 of them had Run Away, the rest have Adaptability. I'm getting annoyed. Ugh.

This suggests it may only work with ditto.
