Yes, the attack will either be Special, Physical, or Status, depending on its "icon" The orange/red icon means that the attack is physical. The blue icon means that the attack is special. The gray icon means that the attack is status.
Thank you! That helps a lot! There are some small things in this game that I needed to figure out again. The last Pokemon I played was Fire Red so I had a lot of catching up to do in terms of new mechanics.
