This thing has been bugging me for a while now, and I need it sorted out:
The abilities, Static and Poison Point (and any others,) they are activated by certain moves.
Gyarados used Bite on Nidorino.
Gyarados was Poisoned by Nidorino's Poison Point.
However, if that same Gyarados used EQ, it doesn't get Poisoned, despite the fact that EQ is a physical move.
Now before everyone tells me that the above abilites work only 30% of the time, and it was just luck, I can tell you that I have done extensive testing and my Gyara has not been poisoned by a Nidorino after 20 EQs.
So, despite their being a Physical/SPecial split, is there also a sub-division in Physical of Physical-Contact/Physical-non-contact/Special?
Sorry, it's just been bugging me, and I'd like the question to be answered.
