Question for Pokemon Sapphire

What does Special Attack and Special Defense mean? I've always wondered this, even way back when I bought Pokemon Yellow.

Special Attack rates the potential of Fire- Water-, Grass-, Electric-, Ice-, Psychic-, Dragon-, and Dark-type attacks, and Special Defense rates the Pokémon's resiliency to these types of attacks.

These stats are consolidated into Special in Red, Blue, and Yellow, and in those versions Poison-type moves were counted as special attacks.
