Physical Sweeper Drowzee (Retro)
Drowzee is a stupendous Physical Sweeper. It is primarily designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Don't forget back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Drowzee 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 Drowzee from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Return is a physical 0-base power Normal-type move (max 102 power at maximum happiness).
♦ Shadow Ball is a physical 80-base power Ghost-type move (20% chance to lower the target's special defense by 1 stage).
♦ Seismic Toss is a physical 0-base power Fighting-type move (does damage equal to your Drowzee's level).
♦ Counter is a physical 0-base power Fighting-type move (if hit by physical attack, returns double damage).
♦ Barrier is a status move (raises your Drowzee's defense by 2 stages).

Special Sweeper Drowzee (Retro)
Drowzee is a pretty decent 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. Drowzee is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield until it was realized Eviolite would make it quite viable. 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 Drowzee from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Confusion is a special STAB-boosted 50-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to confuse the target).
♦ Fire Punch is a special 75-base power Fire-type move (10% chance to burn the target).
