I know a few people (Like Me) That didn't keep track of their EV's and DV's, then found out about hidden power, and wanted to use it. <color=salesman>With this guide brought to you by WPM, find out your HP!</color>

1. Test your power out on a pure Psychic type. If Super Effective, go to step 2. If Not Very Effective, got to step 3. If normal effective, go to step 4.

2. Now test out your HP on a normal/flying type, like a Pidgey. If your attack is Not Very Effective, your HP is HP BUG. If it doesn't affect the pidgey at all, your HP is HP GHOST. If your attack is normal affective, then your HP is HP DARK.

3. Your HP is now either Psychic or Fighting. At this step, test against a Gastly. If it doesn't hit, your HP is HP FIGHTING. If it's super effective, your HP is HP PSYCHIC. You could also test it out against a pure poison type, like an Ekansif you can't get a Gastly.

4. Test your HP against a pure Bug type, like a Caterpie. If it's super effective, go to step 5. If it's Not Very Effective, go to step 6. If it's normal effective, go to step 7.

5. It's either Fire, Flying, or Rock now. Now test against a Fire type. If it's not very effective, your HP is HP FIRE. If it's normal effective, your HP is HP FLYING. If it's super efective, youre HP is HP ROCK.

6. Test against a pure electric type, like a Pikachu. If it's super effective, it's HP GROUND. If it's normal effective, your HP is HP GRASS. If your HP isn't very effective against that electric, test gainst a water type. If that's super efeective, your HP is HP ELECTRIC. If it's not very effective, your HP is HP STEEL.

7. Getting tired? I am. *sigh* Now then. Test your HP against a pure grass type, like a tangela. If it's not very effective, your HP is HP WATER. If it's normal effecive, your HP is HP DRAGON. If it's super effective, your HP is HP ICE.

8. If you've gone through all of these steps and kept at it, your HP is HP POISON. w00t!




I hope this helps at least one person. :D If this is in the wrong spot, please feel free to move it or lock it.

Kudos to Tonberryking to letting me do this and the trusty psypoke type effectiveness chart.


EDIT: Please PM me if you find any mistakes. Thanks.

Wow, nice work, but there is always the simple way to do it, fight a kecleon, but if you don't have R/S/E to find kecleon, this is the best way to do it, I'll use this often in FR.

But this is in the Hoenn Generation section, so someone might want to move it.

Anyway, good effort, WPM. Keep it up :D

Stickied for a while... and I'll probably put this on the site (With credits, of course)

Oh yes, you can't get a Normal type Hidden Power. Only the other 16 types.

my Charizard has HP Grass
my Raichu has HP Ghost
my Machamp has HP Fire
my Porygon has HP Poison (and this was tricky because I've never even seen a dragon pokemon in this game, so I skipped forward to fighting Magikarp, then tested it on a Diglett)
my Rhyhorn has HP Ghost also
and Kabutops is Ice

Wow. You know, I always wanted to know what the HPs of all the Unowns of FRLG were. I caught most of them and I tested them out but I gave up after a while and couldn't come to a conclusion. So, I can't wait to try it out. There was one that sup-effed Machamp and normalled Pigeot. It should be... Psychic? I can't even remember which one that was...

I edited out the part with the dragon type, now it's a grass type. Since most people can't find a dragon in game, respectively. Hope I made it easier. =D

I tweaked it a bit, T-King found a spot that didn't make sense. One less pokemon you have to battle. Yay!

EDIT: The ideal HP to get on an electric type is Ice. If you can't get that, grass or water will do.

Then what about the power? You'll need to do huge calculations to find the power, which ranges from 30-70 (taken from the Razor Leaf or Magical Leaf topic). But still useful. Good job.

The power isn't what's being tested here, it's the type of HP. :?

THIS GUIDE IS TO FIND OUT THE TYPE, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIND THE POWER OTHER THAN KNOWING YOUR DVS!

I've tested my Medicham's Hidden Power in Spoink (super effective) and then, in Taillow (didn't affect it).... So, I guess its Ghost type.

Dude, this topic was {absol} utely handy, I really needed it. Thanx, Water Pokemon Master!

Also, one the Grass type part, you could change it to Grass/Posion as well, since there are few pure Grass types, compared to Grass-Poison. The results will stay the same as well.
