For hidden power, would the attack always be physical as it is of the normal type, or will the type of damage [physical/special] be determined by the type of the hidden power?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And as for the exp share... Im not exactly sure how it works [this is with regards to EV training] so Ill write out how I think it is, and then you could tell me if it is correct or if it works another way..

for this example lets say I have in my party a salamence (holding macho brace) and a lotad (holding EXP share) as well as four uh, lets say, taillows.

Now, if I go out and battle and defeat a swablu for example (+1 Special Defence EVs) and I battle it with my salamence, my slamence will gain 2 EVs.. Now since my lotd is hoding EXP share, it will recieve the EVs as well (and will it be 2 or 1?) and my taillows will gain none

Im just confused because the only time I ever used EXP share, it was in my yellow, where the EXP got divided among all of the pokemon in my party (dunno if it's the same in RSE)

Physical/Special is determined by the type (Example: Water HP is special, Ground HP is physical)

I'm not sure, but I think all the Pokemon holding Exp. Share would get only +1 Sp. Defense EV.

The EVs are not split in any way; all pokemon gaining experience get the full amount of EVs. (But items like Macho Brace only affect the holder)

So Salamence will gain 2 EVs, and Lotad 1.
