Special Sweeper Omanyte (Retro)
Omanyte is an awesome Special Sweeper. This moveset attempts to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Years before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Omanyte is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield until Eviolite was attached to it. 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 Omanyte from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
