The types whose moves were all non-physical before Gen IV.
They are:
Fire, Water, Electric, Ice, Grass, Psychic, Dark, and Dragon.

Dark is lulzy because every Dark-type move was Special in Gen III, whereas every Dark-type move from Gen III or lower was reclassed as Physical in Gen IV.

The only reason anyone mentions them is because all the existing Eeveelutions (who were created at a time when these types were still valid or at least still well-remembered by everyone) have them, and so this is used as a reason that there will be a Dragon-type Eeveelution this generation.

You mean "every Dark-type move introduced in Gen IV was special type".

Anyway it makes sense, most dirty fighting is physical.

What he meant was that moves like Bite and Crunch, which were Dark-type moves, were special in gen 2 and 3, because they were DARK, which was a "special type". Gen 4 got rid of the special type and made the individual moves physical or special, and every move that was Dark type in gen 3 coincidentally became a physical move when it transferred to gen 4.

There are no stupid questions. Just pointless questions asked in incredibly stupid ways.

Given that this is a) not true* and b) not remotely like what he said, and c) what he said was completely true**, I really doubt that he meant that.

* - Assurance, Fling, Night Slash, Payback, Punishment, and Sucker Punch are all Physical Dark-type moves introduced in the fourth gen; the only Special Dark-type move that existed at all in the fourth gen was Dark Pulse.

** - Again, the only Special Dark-type move in the fourth gen was Dark Pulse, which itself was introduced in the fourth gen. So all offensive Dark-type moves from older gens - every last one of them - went from Special to Physical.

Ahh yeah my bad, it was the sentence structure of the post that got me off.

"Dark is lulzy because every Dark-type move was Special in Gen III, whereas every Dark-type move from Gen III or lower was reclassed as Physical in Gen IV."

Really made me confused.
