I think we need a new topic.

Before generation IV, all Dark-type moves were special. However, the presence of powerful Dark-type moves like Crunch, Pursuit, and Thief certainly does not make Dark all that special. So: Do you think it was right to classify them as Special moves? Also, discuss anything related to Dark-type, preGenIV.
For some dark types like Houndoom it was a blessing because it had both types be special, which is the better stat.But for the likes of say Absol, it's a curse. Sure it got STAB from the dark moves, but it wasn't the better attack stat to go off of. To me it's a double edged sword.
