Special Sweeper Oddish (Retro)

Oddish is a marvelous Special Sweeper. It is meant to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Remember prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Oddish from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.

Petal Dance is a special STAB-boosted 70-base power Grass-type move (lasts 2-3 turns. confuses your Oddish afterwards).
Solar Beam is a special STAB-boosted 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2. no charge in sunlight).
Moonlight is a status move (heals your Oddish by a weather-dependent amount).
Protect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Oddish this turn).
Stun Spore is a status move (paralyzes the target).
