In the dark days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Croconaw is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield until Eviolte was added to the mix. 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 Croconaw from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
