Default Secret ability breeding?

I'm doing a lot of breeding to build my competitive team, and I was wondering: if I have a male pokemon of species A that has its secret ability and a female pokemon if species B that does not, is it possible to get the secret ability of species B in the egg? I know that both males and females can pass down secret abilities in X and Y, but I was wondering if having a secret ability can be passed down cross species. Example: I have a male kirlia with its special ability, telepathy, and a female drifloon with one of its normal abilities, like aftermath. Could I get a drifloon with flare boost by breeding the two?

From what I understand, a male Pok?mon can only pass down its Hidden Ability while breeding with Ditto, but I could be wrong about that.

I will test and come back to confirm/deny...

EDIT: Breeding female Gardevoir with its hidden ability and male phantump with natural cure (normal ability).
As of the first 5 eggs, the hidden ability "harvest" has not been inherited by phantump.

EDIT: After 10 eggs, none of the baby phantumps have their hidden ability. Sorry folks, it's looking busted :/
I don't have time to do any more testing, but if someone wants to prove me wrong, be sure to let us all know.

for what i know you must use a phantump with hidden ability to get phantumps with hidden ability.The diference is that you can breed it with Ditto (either male or female),and that was impossible back in 5th gen.

Quick question: If I have a Ditto with it's Imposter Hidden Ability, would every Pokemon of a different species I breed have a chance of getting its own Hidden Ability?

Nope. Doesn't work that way.

Darn. Thanks for answering. I can't wait until Thanksgiving Break so I can start Team-Building already.
