Physical Sweeper Qwilfish (Retro)

Qwilfish is a pretty decent Physical Sweeper. It was designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. In the old days before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Qwilfish from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.

Sludge Bomb is a physical STAB-boosted 90-base power Poison-type move (30% chance to poison the target).
Poison Sting is a physical STAB-boosted 15-base power Poison-type move (30% chance to poison the target).
Double-Edge is a physical 120-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil).
Return is a physical 0-base power Normal-type move (max 102 power at maximum happiness).
Rollout is a physical 30-base power Rock-type move (power doubles with each hit. repeats for 5 turns).
Defense Curl is a status move (raises your Qwilfish's defense by 1 stage).
