I was wondering if Hp goes off the special attack of a pokemon if it has a special type Hp, or does Hp only go off attack if it uses a special type move ?

..
hiddenpower special or physical based, based on its type if thats what you're asking.so if you have a ice type HP then its special and if its something like fighting HP then its physical, k?

Don’t forget that MIRROR COAT will always fail against HIDDEN POWER, even if it is Special-based. On the other hand, COUNER will always work against it.

Well, I might be totally wrong [Razz]

Yeah, but now that I think about it.... Does a HP also always go off the ATTACK stat of the pkmn using it?

Let's say my Espeon uses a fire power, will it go off his attack or his special attack stat?

'Cuz like with that counter-shit, the game sometimes thinks a HP being a NORMAL attack...so... [Eek!]

veloS you idiot.. An Espeon using HP-FIRE will go off its SPECIAL attack stat because FIRE is a special based type. The game thinks Hidden Power is Normal because it can be countered, but that doesn't mean that every hidden power is physical based..but every hidden power can be countered...and the type of hidden power can never be Normal type..

GeeKay lied when he told me that you can have HP Normal with DV of 1/1/1/1? [Frown]

[Eek!] Sorry man, fuck, I know FIRE is special type. I just got confused a bit with all of that countering stuff... [Frown]
