A Special Attack is nonphysical. Here is a list of physical and special types:

Special-
Fire
Water
Ice
Psychic
Dark
Electrical

Physical-
Normal
Fighting
Ground
Rock
Steel (I think this is a physical)

I think I named them all...

Well special attack is the types:Dark, Fire, Pyscic, Dragon, Grass, Water, Electric, and Ice. Ordinary attack is: Bug, Ghost, Poison, Fighting, Ground, Rock, Flying, Normal, and Steel.

Remember, your Pokemon's Special Attack and Attack depends on thier nature. Adammant, Impish, Careful, and Jolly those are the natures that raise Special Attack.

The ones that don't are: Modest, Mild, Rash, and Quiet. The ones that raise Attack are: Bold, Modest, Calm, and Timid. And the natures that don't are: Lonely, Adammant, Naughty, and Brave.

An pokemon's attack does dammage on a non resistance and non weakness pokemons.

While the special attack does damage on a weakness pokemon and resistance pokemon so its wise to keep them mantained.
