I know on the site it says its physical but I used it with Tyranitar on Fire Red and Mirror Coat worked after it so now I'm confused.

In generation three games, like sapphire, ruby, emerald, fire red, and leaf green, Crunch is a special move. In generation 1-3, a move being physical or special is based solely on it's type. Like shadow ball was physical because it was a ghost type. Crunch is physical in generation 4 because They changed it to be based on the attack itself.

So

gen 3-special
gen 4-physical
