    Please no. You cannot believe how much I despise Hidden Power because of its complex mechanics surrounding it. It also forces me to rely on special-based Pokemon with wider movepools so I don't waste days getting the type of HP is recommended by Smogon to make it a good Pokemon. Now that I think about it, Hidden Power hinders the purpose of having you to switch your Pokemon if it has a type disadvantage from the opponent's Pokemon. To answer your question, A physical-based Hidden Power would only make the game mechanic even more complicated for crafting your dream team.
