Physical Sweeper Wobbuffet (Retro)

Wobbuffet is a remarkable Physical Sweeper. This moveset attempts to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.

Counter is a physical 0-base power Fighting-type move (if hit by physical attack, returns double damage).
Mimic is a status move (the last move the target used replaces this one).
Destiny Bond is a status move (if an opponent knocks out your Wobbuffet, it also faints).
Safeguard is a status move (for 5 turns, protects Wobbuffet's party from status).
