Will Hidden Power Typing remain the same?

#1Peachrules14Posted 9/26/2013 7:21:54 PM
Well, with the addition of Fairy Type, I'm assuming the IV system is going to be revamped a bit. My question to you is how GF is going to handle the transfer from Gen 5 to Gen 6 in regards of Hidden Power's type and power. Saying that they'll just add one number and make every IV cap off at 32 isn't really enough, because changing a number in just one of the six categories alters the power and/or type of Hidden Power. This also makes me wonder if Hidden Power will increase in strength to accommodate this. ALSO. Pokemon considered 'perfect' in Gen 5 are probably not perfect anymore.

I would LOVE if they got rid of hidden power all together.

Breeding for it is. I think it's a bit over hyped on Smogon.

This is true, but it's a necessary evil for many.

I really hope they alter it with something a little more practical.
Like making it so it has a fixed amount of Power, as well as being able to change its type anytime you want (from a NPC or something).

It's impractical in-game due to IV mechanics, but it's also the best option in competitive play due to the fact that it is universally available and fills several gaping moveslot holes that a lot of pokemon have.

I don't like how any pokemon can learn any type of move because of hidden power.

It's hardly a necessity with its mediocre BP range. Almost any set running HP can function without it. It's only truly useful for technician users but even then the best technicians are physical and they prefer priorities or STAB with good secondary effects.

Also, Smogon don't breed for it. They skip the entire process.

i hope the type becomes its own value, and that its type and power are shown in-game in the stats.
