Physical Sweeper Gligar (Retro)

Gligar is a sensational Physical Sweeper. It's designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Years before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Gligar from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.

Earthquake is a physical STAB-boosted 100-base power Ground-type move (power doubles on dig).
Return is a physical 0-base power Normal-type move (max 102 power at maximum happiness).
Wing Attack is a physical STAB-boosted 60-base power Flying-type move that deals damage.
Sludge Bomb is a physical 90-base power Poison-type move (30% chance to poison the target).
