Any Special moves that do? While it offers more power to be able to have a move make contact *and* be Special, if there are no vanilla moves which are that way (or vice versa), wouldn't it be simpler to read that byte instead?

    (**I didn't actually check to see if there were any moves like this, so I may have just overlooked some. I'm only really familiar with the 1/2/3rd Gen moves, anyway.)
    Within Pokemon Game Editor's Attack Editor, it has a list of checkboxes. One of them has the option of whether or not that move makes contact with the opponent.
