There are 2 different types of attack. Normal attack and special attack. A normal attack move is a physical attack in which you touch the enemy eg. Karate Chop. A special attack is one in which you don't touch the enemy eg. Psychic. So your special attack is how strong your Special attacks are and your Special Defense is how strong you are AGAINST them.

Special Attack and Special Defense refer to how much damage you can do and how much damage you can prevent taking for certain types of moves, such as Fire, Psychic, and Dragon. Attack and Defense apply to more physical move types like Fighting, Normal, and Rock.

Special Attack and Special Defense are something like attack and defense but it's better if you want to use special attack and special defense use the move called Calm Mind and it will raise your special attack and special defense at the same time you should use it on Latios make your Latios hold Soul Dew and you will mostly have an unbeatable pokemon.Soul Dew also raise your special attack.

Hope I help

Well it's basically attack, but it's like a powerfull th9ing. Moves like hydro pump, fire blast etc are special attacks same for defense.
