Pokémon breeding

21 bytes added, 29 September
Inheriting Abilities: Added specification about male HA breeding with female of same species.
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}}.
 
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 a Ditto, in which case it has a 60% chance to pass down its Hidden Ability. Ditto's Ability is always irrelevant to inheritance. Male Pokémon cannot pass down a Hidden Ability when bred with a female of the same species.
 
If an Egg does not inherit its Ability from a parent, it can only be born with one of its non-Hidden Abilities.
