PostSubject: Hidden Power General Information   Wed Jan 14, 2009 2:26 pm

Hidden Power – General Information

Hidden Power is perhaps the most complex move in the Pokémon games.

The base power of this move ranges from 30 to 70. It can be of any type (except normal), depending on the IV combination that your Pokémon has. In RSFRLGE, it can be either a physical attack or a special attack. It is a physical attack if its type is Fighting, Flying, Poison, Ground, Rock, Bug, Ghost or Steel; it is a special attack if its type is Fire, Water, Grass, Electric, Psychic, Ice, Dragon or Dark. In DP, there is no such complexity, since it is always a special attack.
Know Your Type

Your Hidden Power type is determined by whether or not your IVs are even or odd. An even IV is an IV which can be divided by two without remainder, otherwise it is an odd IV. Namely:

Even
IV 30, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 0
Odd
IV 31, 29, 27, 25, 23, 21, 19, 17, 15, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 3, 1

The easiest way to discover the type of your Hidden Power is to start from zero, and:

* Add 32 if the Special Defense IV is odd.
* Add 16 if the Special Attack IV is odd.
* Add 8 if the Speed IV is odd.
* Add 4 if the Defense IV is odd.
* Add 2 if the Attack IV is odd.
* Add 1 if the HP IV is odd.

Depending on the resulting number, the type of your Hidden Power can be found using the following chart:
If Number Is Between Hidden Power Type Is
0 and 4 Fighting
5 and 8 Flying
9 and 12 Poison
13 and 16 Ground
17 and 20 Rock
21 and 25 Bug
26 and 29 Ghost
30 and 33 Steel
34 and 37 Fire
38 and 41 Water
42 and 46 Grass
47 and 50 Electric
51 and 54 Psychic
55 and 58 Ice
59 and 62 Dragon
63 Dark

Let's have an example: Suppose your Pokémon has the following IVs (remember, in the order HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed):

11, 8, 23, 22, 31, 4

We start from zero, then add 1 because of an odd HP IV (11), add 4 because of an odd Def IV (23), and add 32 because of an odd SpDef IV (31). The answer is 37, which corresponds to Hidden Power Fire.
Know Your Power

The base power of your Hidden Power can be found as follows.

Start from zero. Then, for each IV, if the IV divided by two is an odd number (rounded down), i.e. the IV is 31 or 30 (15), 27 or 26 (13), 23 or 22 (11), 19 or 18 (9), 15 or 14 (7), 11 or 10 (5), 7 or 6 (3), or 3 or 2 (1), then:

* Add 32 if the IV is the Special Defense IV.
* Add 16 if the IV is the Special Attack IV.
* Add 8 if the IV is the Speed IV.
* Add 4 if the IV is the Defense IV.
* Add 2 if the IV is the Attack IV.
* Add 1 if the IV is the HP IV.

After doing this, multiply this number by 40, then divide the answer by 63, and round down. Finally, add 30 to this answer, and you have your Hidden Power base power.

For example, for the IVs given earlier:

11, 8, 23, 22, 31, 4

We start from zero, then add 1 because the HP IV divided by 2 is odd (11 / 2 = 5 rounded down, which is odd), add 4 because of an the Def IV divided by 2 is odd (23 / 2 = 11 rounded down), add 16 since the SpAtk IV divided by 2 is odd (22 / 2 = 11) and add 32 since the SpDef IV divided by 2 is odd (31 / 2 = 15 rounded down). The answer is 53. Multiplying by 40 gives 2120. Dividing 2120 by 63 and rounding down, we get 33. Finally we add 30 to this, getting 63. So Hidden Power's base power would be 63 in this case.

If you haven't understood a single thing from the above, you don't need to worry, since you don´t have to know how exactly the base power is calculated. The most important thing to know is that if the Special Defense, Special Attack and Speed IVs (all three) are odd numbers after being divided by two, you will always get at least base power 65. Because it is relatively easy to breed 3 IVs, these are the three IVs you should aim for when breeding for your Hidden Power.
