Why do the Hitmons have such high Special Defense?

i always assumed it was to counter their primary psychic weakness before the physical/special split


... before?

Before the split they had an awful special stat.

They were really weak to psychic attacks so that's very likely why they tried to buff them.

I don't know about competitively, but Hitmonchan in-game was always a pain for me, even with Psychic attacks. I think it was one of Bruno's only guys that could take a couple of hits before going down.
