Why is Hidden Power so difficult to manage?

#1ColtCababaPosted 12/24/2013 12:25:57 PM
I just want to breed something non-gendered with HP Fire, and I can't do that because I don't have a Ditto with IVs in 30, and they can't breed with N's Pokemon which would make this so much freaking easier.

It's stupid tbh, IV's themselves aren't a great system but a hidden power based on them is just dumb. Personally with them opening up EV's to casuals via super training. I think hidden power should either be selectable from a late game/post game NPC. Or some sort of mini-game should allow you to customize it.

We need some kind of Ability Capsule-like item that can change it.

This

There is really no reason to have HP like it is right now... They even dropped the god awful BP IV linked system just one more step and HP will be much better

If you want I'll breed you one.

But be warned it's very difficult to breed pokemon with HP Fire and with max IVs.

Ah, thanks, but I'll decline. I prefer to breed things myself.

Yeah, I agree. They really need to make HP more flexible and easier to access.

I'm talking about I'll let you borrow my 30 Sp. Atk IV ditto and my 30 Speed IV Ditto to make this less painful to deal with.

I got lucky and bred a perfect Quiet Magnezone with HP Ice.

At this point, I'd say it would be easier if players had no control of HP at all, and the move's type was instead decided by some other random value.

That's really nice, but I'll rather earn such a Ditto myself. Thanks anyway. ^ ^;
