    As far as I can recall, no snivy have ever been released with their hidden ability to date, either through events or the dreamworld.
    Thanks but its a shame though Serperior that gets 2+ Sp. Attack for every Leaf Storm? That would make a Timid one a real threat combined with Wring Out, Dragon Pulse and one other special attack...

    Can I soft reset to obtain different items or Pokémon in a Hidden Grotto?

    Unfortunately, no. What I do when I'm after a specific item/Pokémon is check the one it spawns in, then go and check other hidden grottos until I think enough time has passed until the one I want has regenerated. It can be a lot of effort, but when you get what you want it's worth it!

    Another trick is to make sure all Grottos are full (except the one you want something from--say a specific pokemon), then just ride around until the one you do want has respawned. This is because it goes through and checks each of the Grottos in a specific order to see if they need refilling, and if there is a Grotto in the order - before the one you want - that needs refilling, then it will do that one first. So it could take longer if you go through checking each one at a time. If you don't mind checking each one at a time and getting lots of other things along the way then that method work too of course (it was also the method I used on my game). But for those who just want one specific thing, it might be easier to try the method using the full Grottos.

    You mean a regular Ditto or a Hidden Grotto Ditto? Im assuming you mean one from the Hidden Grotto, just walk around and keep checking the Hidden Grotto to see if one is there, though it may take quite a while to find one, as they have a 5% chance of respawning every 256 steps, and a Pokemon wont always appear. Ditto is also considered Rare so even if a Pokemon generates there is a low chance of Ditto. Just keep respawning the Hidden Grotto until you get one. Also, you'll need to get an item, hidden item or capture/defeat/run away from a Pokemon to respawn the Grotto.

    Do critical hits go through Def and Sp. Def boosts from the Eviolite?

    1. Hidden Grottos cant be soft resetted.
    2.The Giant Chasm is the only place to find Ditto in the Hidden Grotto, because Ditto itself only appears at the Giant Chasm, so yes, you must keep checking that one until you get it.

    No, critical hits do not ignore the stat modifiers for an Eviolite. The critical hit section of the damage modification page goes into more detail about what critical hits can be affected by.

    Soft resetting is pressing L, R, Start and Select all at the same time to restart the game without having to turn off the system. It is also a phrase used when performing that action to obtain a legendary or gift Pokémon with the right nature or to force it to become shiny which normally happens after hundreds, maybe thousands of soft resets.

    However long it takes Im afraid :/ there's no set number of SRs. I got mine at just over 1000 SRs, though it could take more or less. You just need to keep resetting until it appears shiny. There's a 1/8192 chance it will be shiny every reset.
