Is there any vfx software specifically aimed at 2d game developing?
If not, what do you think are the best vfx programs out there that can be proficiently used for 2d game dev?

You mean like explosions, effects, hits or any other gfx fireworks?

Well, that depends. Most people I know just use Adobe After Effect to create any sort of animated visuals. Or you make them at runtime with some tricks, methods and shaders/effects. If After Effect or baking them at runtime is beyond you - there are also software that do that and only that, such as TimelineFX, Magic Particles or Particle Illusion but they all are rather limited in use and scope.

I would advice you to just learn After Effect. Specially as it can be used for many things, not just VFX.
