Why don't we have a Special version on Burn and intimidate?

That's probably why most special attacks were nerfed this gen.

Why?

a) freezing has a low chance at the best of times, and;
b) when frozen, they can't attack anyway.

I think that standard Poisoned would be better (not severely poisoned, ala toxic, as that's enough a boost already).

Well, there are no moves specifically designed to (not badly) poison the opponent though.

You know why spiders know how to spin webs when they hatch? Because F*** You! That's why.

Poison powder, poison gas.

Not to mention nearly every poison type move and their mother have a chance to poison.

Special intimidate I can see being feasible.

Special burn? Hell no. Do you know how annoying the metagame would get if there were statuses that nerfed both sides of the attacking spectrum? Especially if something got access to both of them.

Most Physcial attackers are more of a threat then most Special attackers.

^ This.

Physical Sweepers are more dominant than Special Ones.

I often thought Unnerve should've lowered Special Attack.
