Once upon a time, when Pe2k was the sole host of URPG, referees could roll Hidden Power types for those who needed them rolled.
Then, the officials had a meeting, and decided that while referees could be trusted to ref full-length battles without witnesses and not be biased to one party or another [CREDIT TO LS FOR THIS <3], they were now no longer trusted to roll a dice with a mandatory witness.
I think you can see the point I'm trying to make here.
Seriously, I don't think we ever got a real explanation as to why Refs couldn't roll Hidden Power anymore. I could so easily cheat in a Revolution battle by telling the battler I liked more what moves their opponent was using, yet the only way I could cheat a Hidden Power roll is by getting the witness to lie too. And tbh, who's gonna go to that much trouble?
