Here is the test I did:

Gave all my attacks the fake type of Dragon (testing Tackle against Gastly proves that the type is really changed), set wild Pokemon's DVs to 0.

L16 Bulbasaur, my Pokemon, knows Tackle and Splash.
L16 Gastly, the wild Pokemon, knows only Amnesia.
For the first phase of the test, I made the wild Pokemon know only Amnesia and keep using it while I keep using Splash.

On all these tests, Gastly's HP is 35.
Test 1 - Gastly uses Amnesia until its Special can't be raised anymore, then I use Tackle to attack.
The attack did 13 damage.
Test 2 - Right away, I use Tackle to attack.
Gastly faints!

On the second phase of this test, I replace Amnesia with Barrier.
Test 3 - Gastly uses Barrier until its Defense can't be raised anymore, then I use Tackle to attack.
Gastly faints!

Since Gastly is prevented from fainting only by using Amnesia, Dragon in RBY is proven to be a Special type.

Soon I'll test Dragon's type alignments and see if they match GS's.

Well it is pretty damn easy to see that a Dragonite with a Dragon type move does not do crap to anything

This test was done, as mentioned, a while ago. It's just that it's kinda useless info, even in the abstract, because for all we know, they might program an "Invert Attack/Special" line into all Dragon attacks.

Hacking the ROM is fun, but not really relevant to game play in some instances. That kind of thing is the reason everyone thinks Blizzard freezes 30% of the time.

Its data says that (the same way the data says Dragon attacks are Special-based), but it doesn't come out that way in practice for reasons not immediately apparent in the data line.
