I'm pretty sure that the special stat in RBY was a combination of SpA and SpD.

In Generation I, the Special stat was used for calculating both the power of your special moves, and the defense from the opponent's special move. This made moves like Amnesia raise both your special Attack and special Defense. In Generation II, the games split Special into two stats, perhaps to allow for more strategy.

It's more for balance rather than strategy, because this made moves like, say, Amnesia somewhat broken. Also, it means that Pokemon with good Special offensive ability would naturally have good Special defensive ability, which shouldn't be the case. It's likewise a double penalty for Pokemon like Hitmonchan, with a dismal Special.

My suggestion is referring to the topic that was fairly lengthy, Sacred Ash. There was a great discussion about how to catch things in the Safari Zone, and I'd rather not repeat anything. I'll link it below.

http://www.psypokes.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=22941 Further down, it should help you. Pick who you believe.

Hope this helps!

AEPMT :D :) :P :wink: :mrgreen:
