Hidden Power (Japanese: めざめるパワー Awakening Power) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 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.

Effect

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 Template:Type2 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.

In Mystery Dungeon, the type and base power of Hidden Power is randomly calculated whenever a Pokémon enters the dungeon. It does not change between floors.

"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 Template:Type2 move, cause nothing to happen due to Kecleon's immunity.

However, in Platinum, there is a man in the Veilstone Game Corner Prize Exchange house that will tell the player the type of their Pokémon's Hidden Power. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, he is present in the Celadon Game Corner Prize Exchange house.
