I've been looking into getting a specific type for Hidden Power, but the best I can find is the (now outdated) Smogon Hidden Power Guide.

The Sixth Generation of Pokemon has introduced the Fairy type, throwing the value-table out of whack. So, what are the values needed to get particular types?

  • As the power is now always the same, they might have used the data previously used to determine the power. Other than that, since it probably still works with Odd/Even IVs, there is a theoretical pool of 64 combinations, they could have simply reassigned some of them. If you have a lot of Pokemon whose IVs you know, you can just check their HP type and make a list. I unfortunately have nearly no pokemon whose IVs I know exactly...

1 Answer 1


According to Bulbapedia (emphasis mine):

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.

  • Wow, that's a bummer...
