Physical Sweeper Golem (Retro)
Golem is pretty popular Physical Sweeper. The purpose of this moveset is to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. In the old days before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Golem from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Double-Edge is a physical 120-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil).
♦ Return is a physical 0-base power Normal-type move (max 102 power at maximum happiness).
♦ Rock Slide is a physical STAB-boosted 75-base power Rock-type move (30% chance to flinch the target).
♦ Rock Throw is a physical STAB-boosted 50-base power Rock-type move that deals damage.
♦ Seismic Toss is a physical 0-base power Fighting-type move (does damage equal to your Golem's level).
