How To Get Hidden Abilities in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Gaming Guides, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Pokemon fans worldwide have united once again to celebrate the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The game is a surprise for the fans eagerly waiting for an early release of the game on the Nintendo Switch.

Talking about Pokemons, you can get some hidden abilities if you know how to acquire them in the first place. So far, I have only seen one method that works for most players, so I wanted to share that using this post.

Acquiring Hidden Abilities in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet (SV)

To start off with, there is a way to check the abilities and whether a Pokemon has a hidden ability or not. Ideally:

  • Open “Boxes”
  • Then go to the desired Pokemon you wish to check.
  • Now click on “Check Summary.”

Along with a list of stats, you should see an additional line under the usual HP, Attack, Defense, and the other general statistics. It should look somewhat like this:

Now the question may arise as to how to catch such Pokemons in the first place. Well, there are two simple, tested methods to get them.

  • Raids – Simply doing raids gives you a high probability of capturing these Pokemons with hidden abilities.
  • Free Roam – The good ol’ method of capturing a Pokemon is out in the wild. And as simple as it may sound, that is where you can find these pokemon, as reported by several players.

The one thing I WILL NOT recommend here is to use your Ability Capsules since I have tested them and wasted hundreds of them, and still, I had no luck in getting even one of them with Secret abilities.

So, that was my two cents on how you can get Hidden or Secret Abilities for Pokemons in SV. Leave your thoughts in the comments below, and I will see you with a new one!
