In platinum I went to veilstone game corner to check the hp type for my burmy. I got the message, 'Oh, no. This Pokémon can't learn Hidden Power in the first place.'
Is my game messed up or something? Burmy learns hp through level up.
I think the guy checks if the Pokemon can learn Hidden Power via TM, as that's how the majority of Pokemon learn it. Burmy can learn no TMs, so that's why it's saying that your Burmy can't learn Hidden Power, despite learning it via level up.
