Special Attacking types:
THE ONE EXCEPTION is Hidden Power, because no matter what type it takes, is still classified as a Normal-Type move, and will thus do physical damage. I hope this guide serves to be of help to those making or replying to Generation III RMTs.
BN:One Trick to remember this All the Eeveelutions types as for 4th gen, and Dragon type are Special. Also This list is didn't change from 2nd Generation games, so is applicable there too.
