adding section on inheriting forms
If an Egg does not inherit its Ability from a parent, it can only be born with one of its non-Hidden Abilities.
===Inheriting Forms===
In most cases, if a hatched species has [[List of Pokémon with form differences|multiple forms]] (not dependent on in-battle conditions), it will often inherit the form of the mother or non-{{p|Ditto}} parent. {{p|Burmy}} will always hatch with the same cloak as its mother; if bred between {{p|Mothim}} and {{p|Ditto}}, it will always hatch with a Plant Cloak. {{p|Rockruff}} with the [[Ability]] {{a|Own Tempo}}, which evolves into {{p|Lycanroc}}'s Dusk Form, is treated as a separate form and can inherit this trait accordingly to its offspring.
There are a few exceptions to this inheritance pattern:
* {{p|Vivillon}}'s pattern depends on the real-world, geographic area of the save file it originated from, regardless of its parent's pattern
* {{p|Sinistea}} will always hatch as a Phony Form, even if its parent is an Antique Form
In addition, species with [[regional form]]s will hatch into whichever form is native to that region. However, if a parent of a foreign form and same family is holding an [[Everstone]], the offspring will be of that foreign form instead.
