PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I have chain bred all the Pokemon on my team and used a hidden power calculator to manipulate the ivs to get the preferred HP type. But when I go to the checker he says that all my Pokemon in my party would have a dark type HP why is this? It totally threw me off and I'm confused now.

You calculated, but were you able to breed the correct distribution?
Example: HP Ice is odd/even/even/odd/odd/odd = 31/even/30/31/31/31.

HP Dark is all odd, so that's what you get if your Pokemon are, for example, 31 in all IV's.

Your Pokemon seems perfectly normal. Unless your game is glitched, which it probably isn't since that rarely happens, all your Pokemon may just have odd-numbered IVs.

Hope I helped. :)

Ooooooohhhhh I was looking at it the wrong way completely. I thought it was the amount of perfect ivs a pokemon had that determined hp type. How do I find the exact value of the ivs that aren't perfect?
Lol, yeah. The algorithm for calculating a Pokemon's Hidden Power is listed here.
You may want to use IV Calculator, which can prove useful as long as you know your Pokemon's EVs.
