If either parent is holding a damage-reducing berry(except Chilan since there is no hidden power normal), the offspring's Hidden power type would be decided based on what type the berry reduces damage.
For Ex. If you breed a Ditto with a Magnezone, and the Magnezone is holding an Occa Berry, the Magnemite offspring's hidden power type will ALWAYS be Fire unless you remove the berry from the Magnezone.
To add this up, if both the parents are holding the same damage-reducing berry, the base power of hidden power will always be the max 70. IV breeding for hidden powers would be less tedious this time :D
But if both the parents are holding a different damage-reducing berry(like if the Ditto is holding a Chople and the Magnezone is holding Occa) the offspring's hidden power type would be randomly chosen of one of the parent's berry type's(like the Magnemite's hidden power would either be Fighting or Fire) . But I doubt people would do that method anyways XD

As long as berries became more readily available, I wouldn't have a problem with this. --- Aut viam inveniam, aut faciam

That's pretty rad yeah. Also, they should just change hidden powers base power to 70. Or better yet make it even stronger. --- http://images.wikia.com/dragonball/images/d/d4/GokuBeeGif.gif

In all honesty, EVERYTHING should be controllable in breeding. We still have to limit it to 2 hold items, so there's nothing particularly broken about it. We may as well have a sort of everstone that works for abilities too, just because. --- Moo

Also, hidden powers color should change depending on what type it is. Countless times have I been in a battle and I forget what my pokemons hidden power type is.
I know you can check that but in the middle of a battle it's quite impossible. --- http://images.wikia.com/dragonball/images/d/d4/GokuBeeGif.gif

No longer is IV breeding tedious! --- Chuck Finley is Forever! People that agree: 5. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and am 100% proud of it. Yeah, it's hot, but it's a dry heat.
Sweet. Lots of folk agrees with my idea :D If only there was a good English to Japanese translator so I can send this to the Gamefreak HQ --- Freiza may be cool, but his brother is..... COOLER(get it?) 3DS FC:0645-6947-9076
