Special Sweeper Venomoth (Retro)
Venomoth is a remarkable Special Sweeper. It was designed to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. In the old days before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Psybeam is a special 65-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to confuse the target).
♦ Solar Beam is a special 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2. no charge in sunlight).
♦ Giga Drain is a special 60-base power Grass-type move (Venomoth recovers 50% of the damage dealt).
♦ Thief is a special 40-base power Dark-type move (if your Venomoth has no item, it steals the target's).
♦ Protect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Venomoth this turn).
