In Generations {{gen|III}} and {{gen|IV}}, Abilities could not be inherited by breeding. An Egg would simply randomly be born with one of its possible Abilities.
 
Since [[Generation V]], it has been possible for female Pokémon to pass down their Ability. In {{game|Black and White|s}}, if a female Pokémon has its [[Ability#Hidden Abilities|Hidden Ability]] and is bred with a male Pokémon, it has a 60% chance of passing it down. In {{2v2|Black|White|2}}, a female Pokémon bred with a male Pokémon has an 80% chance of passing down its Ability slot (regardless of whether it is a Hidden Ability or not). From [[Generation VI]] onward, a female Pokémon has an 80% (60% for [[Ability#Hidden Abilities|Hidden Ability]]) chance to pass down its Ability slot, regardless of whether it is bred with a male Pokémon or {{p|Ditto}}.<ref>https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemontrades/comments/6vu1bd/common_misconceptions_about_the_odds_of_breeding/</ref>
 
Since [[Generation VI]], it is possible for male and genderless Pokémon to pass down their Ability. From Generation VI onward, if a male or genderless Pokémon has its Hidden Ability and is bred with Ditto, it has a 60% chance to pass down its Hidden Ability. Ditto's Ability is always irrelevant to inheritance.
