Physical Sweeper Aerodactyl (Retro)
Aerodactyl is a sensational Physical Sweeper. It tries to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Previously before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Aerodactyl from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.

♦ Earthquake is a physical 100-base power Ground-type move (power doubles on dig).
