Gen III- hidden power type

1 vote

in Gen III and all previous generations Hidden power was a physical move but did the type change it like hp(dark) was still special?

Yes. Hidden power Fighting for instance would be physical, since it was based on type rather than the move itself.

in Gen III and all previous generations Hidden power was a physical move

Prior to gen III, hidden power was physical or special based on the type, so that part is incorrect.

that example is really bad considering the move is physical but thanks anyway
That's what I was trying to prove. Moves like hidden power [fighting] would be physical despite Hidden power later being made into a special move in Sinnoh. Dark was special prior to gen IV.
