This is some stuff I found out through some recent tests.

Hidden Power is listed as a normal type move, but the damage dealt by a Hidden Power relies on either attack or special attack, depending on what type of Hidden Power it is. So Psychic, Water, Electric etc., Hidden Powers are based on special attack while Rock, Fighting, Flying etc., Hidden Powers are based on attack.

Secondly, Hidden Power NEVER gets STAB. A Ninetales with a Fire type Hidden Power won't get STAB, and no Normal type gets STAB on Hidden Power, even though it's listed as a Normal type attack.

Lastly, Rain Dance WILL boost the power of Water type Hidden Powers; Sunny Day WILL boost the power of Fire type Hidden Powers.

I just thought I'd pop in and mention that, since there has been some uncertainty in that area.

I believe he was referring to the fact that HP is Normal as it's exiting the TM, but then is shaped type/power wise by the DVs of the pokemon that it grafts to.

You're absolutely sure there's no STAB with HP? You had HP dragon 60 and Dragonbreath on a Kingdra and Dragonbreath did 50% more damage?

Hidden Power is counted as a normal move so attachments like Pink Bow power it up. Even if it deos water/fire etc damage. Hmm, White Cat, how do you become a Molly Nut Bomb? Never heard of it.......

Molly Nut Bomb is the current name for the "Administrator" rank on these forums.

Hmm, that's an interesting bit of info. Have you actually tested Pink/Polkadot Bow powering up Hidden Power?

Could HP be in the same category as Curse in the fact that it is "NORMAL" but it really is typeless?
