Special Sweeper Chinchou (Retro)
Chinchou is a notable Special Sweeper. It is meant to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Chinchou from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Waterfall is a special STAB-boosted 80-base power Water-type move that deals a decent amount of damage.
♦ Thunderbolt is a special STAB-boosted 95-base power Electric-type move (10% chance to paralyze the target).
♦ Spark is a special STAB-boosted 65-base power Electric-type move (30% chance to paralyze the target).
♦ Ice Beam is a special 95-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
♦ Protect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Chinchou this turn).
