You can always go around attacking other Pokemon with it until you find one that its super-effective against, then you can narrow it down. Like if I use it on a Zebstrika and its Super-Effective its Hidden Power Ground. If you have a Kelceon enter a double battle and attack your own Kelceon with Hidden Power. The Kelceon's ability will change its type to match the type of the Hidden Power.

It is calculated by a Pokemon's IVs. Serebii will explain in detail >

but then he has to do all that math :3
lol, but he did ask for how you can work it out. :3
Plus he would have to figure out what IVs he had
Well, he could just headed to one of the Pokemon Centers that have Hidden Power calculating NPCs, like in Veilstone City. Easy enough, even easier competitive; it's right there in the teambuilder!
He wanted to find out without talking to a NPC
