Until gen 4 those moves were all special attacks and therefore awful on Hitmonchan

Because I first played Pokemon when I was 4, until a few years ago, I used to think that I imagined the old att sp.att system. I'm glad that I'm not crazy.

Special: Dark, Fire, Water, Electric, Grass, Dragon, Psychic, Ice

Physical : Steel, rock, normal, ghost, fighting, poison, bug, flying, ground

In Gens 1-3 these moves have been always like this

Not in the old games. They did a retroactive change at some point and made them physical.

My apologies then, I seem to have forgotten. It has been years since I turned on my Gameboy Color

how the hell were they special?

Before 4th Gen came out. All Electric, Water, Fire, Dragon, and Psychic Type moves were considered special. This is why many people preferred Hitmonlee over Hitmonchan. By the time Hitmonchan was even useful, other Pokemon from 4th gen trumped over him.

i always figured that special attacks were the ones that didn't make contact, i.e surf, razor leaf.
and physical were ones that did make contact...wasn't it like in gen 2 forward?
if so, not all of one type of move could be considered special

Yes they started doing that in gen 4. I have no idea why it took so long

Dark was physical. You were right the first time.

dark was special actually and also why mirrorcoat could work against a bite but still won't affect dark types
