Physical Sweeper Scraggy (Intimidate)

Scraggy is an awesome Physical Sweeper. It's purpose is to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Scraggy is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield but Eviolite makes it possibly stronger than it's final form. If Eviolite is held by a Pokémon that is not fully evolved, it will raises the Defense and Special Defense of that Pokemon by 50%. Focus Sash helps protect Scraggy from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
