Doduo is a marvelous Physical Sweeper. It tries to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Don't forget before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Doduo from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
