Sorry if someone already asked this, but I'm too lazy to go through the whole thread. I'm wondering about Hidden Power damage calculations. I tried to decipher it myself on the wikia, and even though I'm good with math, the instructions have me at a total loss. Can someone give me a brief, simple rundown of it. Use one of my Pokemon as a test subject. It's my Empoleon in W2. I'm trying to figure out a good move for him, and I was wondering about Hidden Power. Here is what I know so far.
HP Type: Ground
IV Stat Total: "This Pokémon has relatively superior potential overall." (121-150)
Highest IV Stat: Sp. Def
Sp Def IV Stat: "It's fantastic in that regard." (26-30)
If anyone can simplify this for me, I would be very grateful. I know nothing about IVs, but I'm at a loss for new moves, so I wanted to try Hidden Power. With a Ground-type Hidden Power, I felt that was promising, so I'm looking into it more, but I'm just dumbfounded by the formula (especially since I have no clue what else to do). Thanks in advance.
