Special Sweeper Ledyba (Retro)

Ledyba is an outstanding Special Sweeper. It was designed to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Ledyba is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield until Eviolte was added to the mix. 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 Ledyba from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.

Ice Punch is a special 75-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
Thunder Punch is a special 75-base power Electric-type move (10% chance to paralyze the target).
Psybeam is a special 65-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to confuse the target).
Solar Beam is a special 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2. no charge in sunlight).
