Hidden Power

#11Emerald_FlashPosted 8/15/2013 2:03:45 PM
It's easily exploitable and makes no sense. Every Pokemon shouldn't have access to every type of attack. Many people consider HP a necessity on their builds, which is. . . stupid.

I say they remove it completely.

Saying inb4 does not make you cool, or clever. It actually makes you seem like a troll.

I wish they'd introduce a way to determine hidden power that was IV.. anything would be preferred at this point. Uhh I have been trying to get a Timid Eevee with hidden power ice and a decent speed stat for 8 days now.


I love my modest hp ice Jolteon. That thing took me over a month and a half to breed. I hatched a shiny Eevee during that month and a half.

Well yeah nega, that is the story and explanation behind the move, I just don't buy it. Seeing a charizard use an ice move or something just literally makes no sense. And yes I know, 'it's vidya game, no have to make cents' but still ha

Hidden Power IS currently necessary for Special Attackers (the few in OU and under that are viable), but that's because there are so few good and reliable special attacks compared to the many amazing and reliable physical attacks most physical attackers can learn.

Hidden Power and IVs should be removed, but they need to make a bunch of new powerful and reliable special attacks to make up for it like the physical attackers have.

Since they're introducing Fairy Type, the entire Hidden Power and IV system would be a mess. As in your hard work in breeding a specific Hidden Power would be a waste since they're adding a new type into the mix. I say make Hidden Power reliant on a different, less tedious mechanic such as an in-game facility that can change it or those macaron things in Pokemon-Amie.

Not necessarily. It's more than possible to devise a method that will keep the same Hidden Power for transferred Pokemon, yet still have a new method that takes Fairy into account.

However, I do completely agree that Hidden Power in general needs to be changed. Ideally, we should be able to change it at will, but since this is Game Freak...
