Hidden power is useful as the type is determined by your IV's. You can get a type that cover a certain weakness.

for example,

Typhlosion can get a hidden power electric or grass, to make up for his water type weakness

Pretty useful in competitive battling, although the fact that its a special move means less pokemon can fully utilize it

It used to (potentially) have better BP, too, didn't it? Or was it always 60 max?

Used to have a range, with 70 as the max. Now it's always 60 all the time no matter what.
