Does a King's Rock's effect only work for physical moves?

I was wondering because I gave my Dronite one, and the majority of his moves are special so I just wanted to know that.

It works for all moves that cause damage.

All moves that actively deal damage and do not already have a chance to flinch will gain a 10% chance of flinching the opponent. (This chance doubles to 20% if the holder has Serene Grace.) This effect does not stack with Stench, and is not affected by Sheer Force.

No, King's Rock works for all attacking moves, regardless of special or physical.
