In the GameBoy Pokemon games, a Pokemon would have five stats: HP, Attack, Defense, Special, and Speed. Pokemon Gold and Silver introduced a sixth stat, Special Defense (Sp. Def.) while renaming Special to Sp. Atk. Back in the GameBoy Pokemon games, Special would serve as the role of both Sp. Atk. and Sp. Def., meaning your Special-class attacks' damage input AND output were determined by one stat, creating a painful imbalance in some cases that the stat separation remedied.
