Physical Sweeper Totodile (Retro)
Totodile is a stupendous Physical Sweeper. It's purpose is to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. In the old days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Totodile 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 Totodile from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Slash is a physical 70-base power Normal-type move (high critical hit ratio).
♦ Rock Slide is a physical 75-base power Rock-type move (30% chance to flinch the target).
