The formation process of perovskite-type hydride LiNiH$$_{3}$$ was investigated using ${it in situ}$ synchrotron X-ray diffraction measurements. A mixture of LiH and Ni was hydrogenated at 873 K and 3 GPa, and the structural changes associated with hydrogenation were observed. Time resolved diffraction profiles showed a three-step reaction: hydrogenation of Ni to NiH$$_{x}$$, formation of Li$$_{y}$$Ni$$_{1-y}$$H solid solution, and conversion to perovskite-type hydride LiNiH$$_{3}$$. The solid solution, which has never been reported, plays the role of the precursor in the perovskite formation and its presence is apparently critical for synthesizing perovskite-type hydrides.
