Minun's also the only pokemon with the "Minus" ability. Is it possible that this has something to do with it or is it more likely due to Minun's species? If someone were to keep tooling around Minun's various traits and pointers, they might find something. I would, but I prefer to hack Emerald. So at the moment, I'm just a brainstormer in this matter.

And I'm aware that the ability being related is a strange guess, but it's also a strange glitch. Something about Minun has to be affecting the attack type, as it's incredibly strange that Plusle is unaffected. My theory is that it could be a programming error related to the ability and special/physical attack of Minun (the glitch was probably small enough that Nintendo's developers either missed it or ignored it).

EDIT. And perhaps the game's routine for checking the special attack modifier from "Minus" is different than the routine for "Plus" somehow? I'm just throwing things out there so don't overreact if I'm way off base with this one.
