Type 2. Base power Section Two: Hidden power breeding in Emerald, Diamond and Pearl SECTION ONE: Hidden power – general info Hidden Power is perhaps the most complex move in Pokémon. The base power of this move ranges from 30 to 70. It can be of any type (except normal), depending on the IV combination that your Pokémon has. In RSFRLGE, it can be either a physical attack or a special attack. It is a physical attack if its type is Fighting, Flying, Poison, Ground, Rock, Bug, Ghost or Steel; it is a special attack if its type is Fire, Water, Grass, Electric, Psychic, Ice, Dragon or Dark. In DP, there is no such complexity, since it is always a special attack. 1. Type Your Hidden Power type is determined by whether or not your IVs are even or odd. An even IV is an IV which can be divided by two without remainder, otherwise it is an odd IV. Namely: Even = IV 30, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 0 Odd = IV 31, 29, 27, 25, 23, 21, 19, 17, 15, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 3, 1 The easiest way to discover the type of your Hidden Power is to start from zero, and: 1) Add 32 if the Special Defense IV is odd. 2) Add 16 if the Special Attack IV is odd. 3) Add 8 if the Speed IV is odd. 4) Add 4 if the Defense IV is odd. 5) Add 2 if the Attack IV is odd. 6) Add 1 if the HP IV is odd. Depending on the resulting number, the type of your Hidden Power can be found using the following chart: Between 0 and 4: Fighting Between 5 and 8: Flying Between 9 and 12: Poison Between 13 and 16: Ground Between 17 and 20: Rock Between 21 and 25: Bug Between 26 and 29: Ghost Between 30 and 33: Steel Between 34 and 37: Fire Between 38 and 41: Water Between 42 and 46: Grass Between 47 and 50: Electric Between 51 and 54: Psychic Between 55 and 58: Ice Between 59 and 62: Dragon 63: Dark Let's have an example: Suppose your Pokémon has the following IVs (remember, in the order HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed): 11, 8, 23, 22, 31, 4 We start from zero, then add 1 because of an odd HP IV (11), add 4 because of an odd Def IV (23), and add 32 because of an odd SpDef IV (31). The answer is 37, which corresponds to Hidden Power Fire. 2. Base Power The base power of your Hidden Power can be found as follows. Start from zero. Then, for each IV, if the IV divided by two is an odd number (rounded down), i.e. IV = 31 or 30 (15), 27 or 26 (13), 23 or 22 (11), 19 or 18 (9), 15 or 14 (7), 11 or 10 (5), 7 or 6 (3), or 3 or 2 (1) then: 1) Add 32 if the IV is the Special Defense IV. 2) Add 16 if the IV is the Special Attack IV. 3) Add 8 if the IV is the Speed IV. 4) Add 4 if the IV is the Defense IV. 5) Add 2 if the IV is the Attack IV. 6) Add 1 if the IV is the HP IV. After finishing, multiply this number by 40, then divide the answer by 63, and round down. Finally, add 30 to this answer, and you have your Hidden Power base power. For example, for the IVs given earlier: 11, 8, 23, 22, 31, 4 We start from zero, then add 1 because the HP IV divided by 2 is odd (11 / 2 = 5 rounded down, which is odd), add 4 because of an the Def IV divided by 2 is odd (23 / 2 = 11 rounded down), add 16 since the SpAtk IV divided by 2 is odd (22 / 2 = 11) and add 32 since the SpDef IV divided by 2 is odd (31 / 2 = 15 rounded down). The answer is 53. Multiplying by 40 gives 2120. Dividing 2120 by 63 and rounding down, we get 33. Finally we add 30 to this, getting 63. So Hidden Power's base power would be 63 in this case. If you haven't understood a single thing from the above, you don't need to worry, since you don´t have to know how exactly the base power is calculated. The most important thing to know is that if the Special Defense, Special Attack and Speed IVs (all three) are odd numbers after being divided by two, you will always get at least base power 65. Because it is relatively easy to breed 3 IVs, these are the three IVs you should aim for when breeding for your Hidden Power. SECTION TWO: Hidden power breeding in Emerald, Diamond and Pearl FORMAT: HP/attack/defense/special attack/special defense/speed parent A + parent B -> baby = probability in % = one in how many eggs (rounded up) NOTE: it doesn´t matter which IV you start with, or in which order, because the three main hidden power IVs (sp.defense, sp.attack, speed) have all the same probability to be passed in Emerald (D/P), it would only matter if one of those three IVs had to be HP or defense, but this is not the case...so feel free to start with any of those three IVs Order: ice, grass, fighting, ground, rock, flying, electric, bug, ghost, fire, water, psychic, dragon, dark, steel, poison (CTRL+F) hidden power ICE first way – max speed, special attack and special defense second way – max special attack and special defense, 30 speed -> here is only the first way, max speed is more important + it has a higher chance to get the ICE type 1. x/x/x/x/x/31 + x/x/x/x/x/x -> x/x/x/x/x/31 = 26.5625% =

I wish I had seen this earlier when trying to breed an HP Electric Slowpoke, lol. I'm definitely going to bookmark this. Great job, Peterko.

Man... you guys must be absolute GENIUSES!!! And not only that, but you must have an incredible amount of perserverance! All of these articles are great work! Kudos to both of you!!! *hands out more cookies*

Am I right in saying it is impossible to get a good HP Fire on a Trick Room user with 0 speed? If so, the way I am looking at this guide, it seems that if the 30 was replaced with a 2 it would do exactly the same thing. Also great guide by the way, I understand it much more that when it was created. These guides have helped me a ton with breeding.

Indeed, you can't get Hidden Power Fire 70 BP with 0 Speed IV, unfortunately. The lowest it can be is 2, as you say.

Thanks for clearing that up. I think I will keep my first HP breeding for a non trickroomer to make things easier.

You can have HP Fire 64 with 30 Defense, 30 Special Attack, and 0 Speed. This is the highest Hidden Power possible.

This guide= amazingness. It will be very useful when breeding HP Grass charmanders, and HP Ice eevees.

It seems the easiest ones to breed for where sp.atk & speed are both at 31 for power(70) are the following in type order: 30/30/30/31/30/31 HP = bug 31/30/30/31/30/31 HP = bug 31/31/31/31/31/31 HP = dark 30/30/31/31/31/31 HP = dragon 30/31/31/31/31/31 HP = dragon 31/30/31/31/31/31 HP = dragon 31/31/30/31/31/31 HP = dragon 30/30/31/31/30/31 HP = ghost 30/31/30/31/30/31 HP = ghost 31/30/31/31/30/31 HP = ghost 31/31/30/31/30/31 HP = ghost 30/30/30/31/31/31 HP = ice 30/31/30/31/31/31 HP = ice 31/30/30/31/31/31 HP = ice 30/31/31/31/30/31 HP = steel 31/31/31/31/30/31 HP = steel With HP ice being very commonly sought after, I notice there are 3 ways to get a 70 power by focusing on flawless sp.atk/sp.def/speed stats.

Ok, Gotta say this is really helpful, gonna start attempting to HP Breed... However instead of doing the Generic 31/30 Speed Breeding I have to do it to TR standards, Do I just subsitute the 31 for 3 and 30 for 2?

Replacing 31 for 3 and 30 for 2 would alter neither the Hidden Power type nor its base power, so yes.

hp fighting can also be obtained with E/E/O/E/E/E. i'm pretty sure this is the only combination which isnt mentioned explicitly in the first post. (except for some that were intentionally left out - eg the slow hp ice spread etc). (i'm not really a nerd. i was just making a table of all the even/odd combinations and the hp types they produce. nothing nerdy at all.....)

You're right. You can have 30/30/31/30/30/30, 31/31/30/30/30/30, 31/30/30/30/30/30, 30/31/30/30/30/30 or 30/30/30/30/30/30 to get HP Fighting 70.

I just want to thank you guys for this. you don't know how much this has helped me with HP.It helped a lot. well, now you do. Kudos, anyway
