How are those two stats determined when transferring a RBY Poke to GS? I would think that the game would take the Pokemon's current deter value for Special and use it for both, but that's only what I think and I'm not too sure on that at all. Anyone know?

You are kinda cryptic in your question, pick a question answer set:

Q: How are the special attack and special defense scores calculated in Gold/Silver?

A. The same way that the special score is in the previous games, except that the base value for special attack and special defense now may be different. That decision was made on a per monster basis.

Q: Are there two deter (gene) values, one for each of special attack and defense, or is it totally based off the old one, or something else?

A: The only thing that has been modified (and not in all cases) is the base value. This means that the special gene is used on both special attack and special defense, and that the bonus from stat EXP given to your special score in the older games is given to both special attack and special defense in the new one.

What this means is that you have the same stat EXP counters as before, and the results are applied the same, except that one of them (special) counts for two stats.

What I don't know is how it calculates how much stat EXP you recieve when you take out a monster with differing SpAtt and SpDef. Do you recieve an average?

Hope this helps, if this isn't what you were asking, ask again...

What I meant was.....er....it's easier just to use an example. Say my Arcanine has a Special deter value of 15 in RBY. When I transfer it to G/S, will it use the deter value of 15 for both Special Attack and Special Defense, or are they determined in another way? If I read your answer correctly, then it uses the 15 for both. Right?

Special Attack and SPecial Defense don't each get their own DV, they use the same one, and they use the same Stat EXP, too, to keep things in order if you trade your Gold version Pikachu to your Red version. As stated above, the Base Stats may be different for the two Special stats, and this would cause a change.
