Physical Sweeper Entei (Retro)
Entei is a legendary Physical Sweeper. It's purpose is to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. In the old days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Strength is a physical 80-base power Normal-type move that deals a good amount of damage.
♦ Dig is a physical 60-base power Ground-type move (digs underground turn 1, strikes turn 2).
♦ Mud-Slap is a physical 20-base power Ground-type move (100% chance to lower the target's accuracy by 1 stage).
♦ Rock Smash is a physical 20-base power Fighting-type move (50% chance to lower the target's defense by 1 stage).
♦ Detect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Entei this turn).
