Special Sweeper Mareep (Retro)
Mareep is an outstanding Special Sweeper. It's purpose is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Thunder Shock is a special STAB-boosted 40-base power Electric-type move (10% chance to paralyze the target).
♦ Defense Curl is a status move (raises your Mareep's defense by 1 stage).
♦ Thunder Wave is a status move (paralyzes the target).
♦ Light Screen is a status move (for 5 turns, your Mareep's party has doubled special defense).
