Hidden Power (Japanese: めざめるパワー Awakening Power) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. Although it appears as a Normal-type move, Hidden Power's actual type and base power vary. For calculation on Hidden Power, see Hidden Power calculation. It has been TM10 since Generation II.

Effect

Main article: Hidden Power calculation

Hidden Power inflicts damage using a type and base power determined by the user's IVs.

Hidden Power can receive same-type attack bonus. For instance, a Bug-type Pokémon will receive same-type attack bonus when using a Bug-type Hidden Power. Although Hidden Power is Normal-type in the game's data, a Normal-type Hidden Power is not obtainable. Because of this, a pure Normal-type Pokémon will never receive same-type attack bonus when using Hidden Power unless it also has Normalize as its Ability.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

The type and base power of Hidden Power is randomly calculated whenever a Pokémon enters a dungeon, and does not change between floors. The type is selected among each of the 17 types with roughly equal probability (the game chooses from the 18 types, including the ???-type, choosing again if the ???-type is chosen; if this is done 100 times consecutively, Hidden Power will be of the Fire-type). The base power of the move is chosen among the following values with equal probability: 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 15, and 17.

Pokémon Rumble/Pokémon Rumble Blast

Hidden Power is randomly assigned any of the 17 types whenever a Toy Pokémon has it as one of its moves. The typing does not change for as long as the Pokémon keeps the move.

"Testing" Hidden Power

Players are able to test what the type of their Hidden Power is most often by utilizing a Kecleon. It does not have to be their own, though this makes it more convenient. Entering any Double Battle with the Pokémon with Hidden Power and Kecleon at the front of the list, then using Hidden Power on the Kecleon will cause it to change types to the type that Hidden Power is, or, if the Hidden Power is a Ghost-type move, cause nothing to happen due to Kecleon's immunity.

However, starting in Platinum, there is a man in-game that will tell the player the type of their Pokémon's Hidden Power, and, even if the Pokémon doesn't know Hidden Power, the type that it would have. In Platinum, he is present in the Veilstone Game Corner Prize Exchange house. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, he is present in the Celadon Game Corner Prize Exchange house. In Black and White, he is present in the Pokémon Center in Mistralton City. In Black 2 and White 2, he has been relocated to the Pokémon World Tournament.
