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'm a the Luigi master!

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.
