Why is earthquake physical?

I know it is a silly question, but I was wondering if I was the only one who thought earthquake, of explosian should be a special move.

An earthquake is when the ground around you is shaking. Because the damage from that hits you, instead of some beam being fired (which is what most special attacks are) it is physical.

Agreed......
Extra periods to make 12 characters.
I also agree with ohioscyther. However, I agree with DT on the movecomplimenting the Pokemon using it. ANcientpower for example, can be learned by very few Rock types because very few are Special.
Yes, I agree with that too.
A physical move attacks with something you can touch. Like Rock Slide, you can touch rocks. And Razor Leaf, you can touch leaves.
