I've never seen a full list, listing all combinations of 30's and 31's in IV that give perfect Hidden Power, so I decided to manually make a chart.

Hidden Power type is based on whether each IV is even or odd. Since there are 6 different IV's and each of them can be even or odd, there are 2^6, or 64 combinations of all IV's being even or odd.

Hidden Power's power is a bit more complicated, but the basic idea is that every IV being 30 or 31 will always give a power of 70. However, you can decrease any IV by a multiple of 4 and retain a power of 70. This means that every IV listed as 31 can be replaced by 27, 23, 19, 15, 11, 7, or 3, and every IV listed as 30 can be replaced by 26, 22, 18, 14, 10, 6, or 2 without changing the power and type. Therefore, the ideal speed IV for Hidden Power in Trick Room is 2 or 3 (depending on whether you need even or odd). Special attackers who don't care about attack, and physical attackers who don't care about special attack, can have any even/odd IV listed above.

Here is the full list, listed as HP / Atk / Def / SpAtk / SpDef / Speed:

Additional comments:
You'd expect that all types would have an equal 1/16 chance, but for whatever reason this isn't so. Hidden Power Dark is the rarest, requiring all odd IV's for a 1/64 chance. Grass, Bug, and Fighting each have a 5/64 chance.

For sweepers that rely on speed, you want to avoid a non-31 speed IV, if possible. For some types such as Hidden Power Fire this is not possible, as you must have an even speed IV. The implications of this are such that an HP Fire Gengar cannot ever speed-tie with a regular Gengar that has a 31 speed IV. Consider things like this when deciding whether to use Hidden Power on your sweeper.

Different purposes.

That link is a Hidden Power calculator, but it doesn't list what you're looking for if you're planning a specific Hidden Power in advance.

There's been charts like these since the GBA games, but good job anyways, since they're harder to find now. Only chart I can think of right now is the one in Blueshirt's moveset guide in the GBA games, but the difference is he only lists the spreads that were common for competitive use.
Just kidding.

Thank you tc this is very very helpful.

I am wondering if I had a sweeper who direly needed HP Fire if it would be viable or possible to just use a Hidden Power of a slightly lower base power.
hey I love vanilluxes. :3
