Beginning in [[Generation V]], {{cat|Pokémon without Hidden Abilities|most Pokémon}} were given an additional, '''Hidden Ability''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|隠|かく}}れ{{tt|特性|とくせい}}''' ''Hidden Ability''). A Pokémon with its Hidden Ability will retain its ability slot upon [[evolution]], unless the evolved form has no Hidden Ability. Hidden Abilities can only be acquired under special circumstances. Such circumstances are listed below.
* Certain [[event Pokémon]] may have their Hidden Ability.
* In Generation V, all Pokémon encountered in [[Entree Forest]] (i.e. obtained from the [[Pokémon Global Link]], either via the [[Pokémon Dream World]] or a [[List of Pokémon Global Link promotions/Pokémon|Global Link promotion]]) will always have their Hidden Ability, if they have one.
* Pokémon obtained from the [[Pokémon Dream Radar]] will have their Hidden Abilities.
* In {{game|Black and White|s}}, some overworld Pokémon have their Hidden Ability:
** The five {{p|Darmanitan}} in the [[Desert Resort]].
** The {{p|Musharna}} in the [[Dreamyard]] on Fridays.
* Any Pokémon found in [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]]'s [[Hidden Grotto]]s have their Hidden Ability.
* In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, some overworld and gift Pokémon have their Hidden Ability:
** On Mondays, a male {{p|Jellicent}} at [[Undella Bay]]{{sup/5|B2}} or a {{p|Braviary}} on {{rt|4|Unova}}{{sup/5|W2}}.
** On Thursdays, a {{p|Mandibuzz}} on {{rt|4|Unova}}{{sup/5|B2}} or a female {{p|Jellicent}} at [[Undella Bay]]{{sup/5|W2}}.
** A {{p|Deerling}} given as a gift on {{rt|6|Unova}}.
** A male {{p|Eevee}} gifted by [[Amanita]] in [[Castelia City]], after the player has entered the Hall of Fame.
** [[Yancy]]/[[Curtis]] will trade the player a specific Pokémon with a Hidden Ability after entering the [[Hall of Fame]] and riding the ferris wheel with them.
* Any Pokémon encountered in a [[Horde Encounter]] may have their Hidden Ability.
* Pokémon encountered in the [[Friend Safari]] have approximately a 1 in 3 chance of having their Hidden Ability if the Friend to whom the Friend Safari corresponds has been recognized as a Friend in the [[Player Search System|PSS]] (i.e. if both players have been on the PSS at the same time).
* {{DL|DexNav|Hidden Pokémon}} have a chance of having their Hidden Ability, which increases as the Search Level for that species increases.
* In Generation VII, Pokémon that appear as the tenth or later Pokémon in an [[SOS Battle]] have a chance of having their Hidden Ability, which increases as the chain lengthens.
* All Pokémon transferred from the [[Virtual Console]] releases of the [[Generation I]] or [[Generation II]] games via [[Poké Transporter]] have their Hidden Ability.
* In {{g|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}}, some [[Totem Sticker|Totem-like]] Pokémon have their Hidden Ability. This is to ensure the Totem Pokémon in question has only one possible Ability upon being received.
** Totem-like {{p|Gumshoos}}, {{rf|Alolan}} {{p|Marowak}}, and {{p|Ribombee}} in Ultra Sun.
** Totem-like {{rf|Alolan}} {{p|Raticate}}, {{p|Togedemaru}}, and {{p|Kommo-o}} in Ultra Moon.
* In Generation VIII, Pokémon can yield a Hidden Ability through a [[Max Raid Battle]].
