Hidden Power is stupid for this exact reason. There is no legit way for a Pokemon with the right IV, Ability, and Egg Moves to ALSO have the Exact Type and Power of Hidden Power.

You are asking people to cheat. If there is no legit way to make Hidden Power work, why have it at all?

Having a weakness in a moveset, not having 100% type coverage, gives each Pokemon a unique purpose on the team. If one pokemon could deal super effective damage to everything, Why have six pokemon at all?

The only thin Hidden Power can do is homogenize Pokemon so they all operate the same way.
