How does HP work and how are you able to get the HP you want; such as fire for ex with outstanding IVs?

And what's the max damage it usually carries?

Thank you in advance.
Looking forward on ditching pokemon B & W for X & Y.

getting the right HP is kinda hard unless you RNG or hack because you need kinda specific IVs.

also the max power is 70.

And since you're asking on the Pokémon X board instead of Black (2), know that how it works will almost certainly change in some way anyway thanks to the Fairy type (unless it just simply can't be Fairy-type...)

In order to get the IVs necessary to get a specific type of Hidden Power with a base power of 70 (the max), people usually hack, RNG, or otherwise manipulate the IVs.

It is possible to get decent Hidden Powers if you breed enough, however. As an example, I bred this Joltik, which has both good IVs and a good Hidden Power: https://www.pokecheck.org/?p=detail&uid=3465664

HP is what keeps your Pokemon alive. When a Pokemon's HP reaches zero, then they faint and become unusable until they are revived. You can get the HP you want by having your Pokemon have the right amount of IVs and EVs in HP.

I'll be honest: I saw the topic's title and initially really did think he was asking about hit points rather than Hidden Power.

Here's how Hidden Power works.

There are two formulas, but they're mostly the same. Hidden Power WILL change type (but not power) in Gen VI, though.

How the formulas work: you take the Pokemon's IVs and divide them by two. The remainder is either one or zero. If A, B, C, D, E, and F are the remainders for HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed respectively, then add (A + 2B + 4C + 8D + 16E + 32F), divide that by 63 (the maximum sum if A-F are all 1) and multiply that by 15. This number is rounded down. Each result corresponds to a type.

If you want to calculate the power, take the fraction with the 63 and instead of multiplying it by 15, you multiply it by 40 and add 30. Round down and you have a number between 30 and 70. This is your power.

The best powers possible are 70 (for non-Technician Pokemon) and either 60 or 59 (for Technician Pokemon). 59 is only good because 60 requires a lowered Sp. Atk stat.

So Hidden Power gets affected by Technician if the power is below 60? For the mons that get it, which types are recommended for type coverage?

Why does it say "This Pokémon is likely edited or RNG abused."

Hmmm?!
