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 varies. It has been TM10 since Generation II.

Effect

Main article: Hidden Power (move)/Calculation

Generations II to V

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.

Generation VI

Hidden Power's base power is now 60, and like in previous generations, its type is determined by the user's IVs. As the method for determining the type of Hidden Power is the same as Generation III to V, a Fairy-type Hidden Power is not possible.

In other games

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 series

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