Physical Sweeper Hitmonchan (Retro)
Hitmonchan is a stupendous Physical Sweeper. It's meant to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Return is a physical 0-base power Normal-type move (max 102 power at maximum happiness).
♦ High Jump Kick is a physical STAB-boosted 85-base power Fighting-type move (if miss, Hitmonchan takes 1/8 damage it would've dealt).
♦ Mach Punch is a physical STAB-boosted priority-increased 40-base power Fighting-type move (usually goes first).
♦ Mud-Slap is a physical 20-base power Ground-type move (100% chance to lower the target's accuracy by 1 stage).
♦ Detect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Hitmonchan this turn).
