    Default help please. ( sorry if asking in wrong place )

    i have been thinking about something and the answer is most likely realy stupidly obvious but if someone can help please i would be gratefull

    in the 1st 2nd and 3rd gen days moves werent classified. moves werent listed as special or physical. so what was the point of a attack stat and a sp attack stat how could we differentiate the two.

    for example if i am raising a charizard which i know has much higher base stat of sp attack than it does att then i am going to put evs in sp aim for modest over adamant and teach flamethrower over flare blitz.
    but how can this be planed out and done in older gens.

    if in older gens all moves are just moves and not classified as special or physical then where does special or physical stats come in and what is the point in them. the reason i ask is i am about to get another file going on emerald for some seis toss chansey and im putting thought into team options.

    is there anyone who can give info on this

    not sure if im explaining it well. what im saying is in 3rd gen if a poke has high att and low special att but moves arent divided into the physical and special category ( which they arent ) then how do i know which moves are which and best move sets to use.

    or is the answer that now with the update in 4th gen when all moves were catergorised into physical or special i can still use that as a guide to what is special and physical in previous gens

    You should have Asked this within a 3rd Gen Help thread. The type determines the stat used. With the exception of Dark-type, most moves didn't change between Attack/Def and Sp Attack/Def.
