Physical Sweeper Arcanine (Retro)
Arcanine is a notable Physical Sweeper in single battles. It attempts to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. The original meta-game back in the RBY days was ridiculous. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Double-Edge is a physical 100-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil). ♦ Body Slam is a physical 85-base power Normal-type move (30% chance to paralyze the target). ♦ Dig is a physical 100-base power Ground-type move (digs underground turn 1, strikes turn 2). ♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target). ♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Arcanine's defense is doubled).

Category Filter: Filter movelist to show only Physical, Special, or Status moves
Extended Move Details:Additional move information such as Risk versus Reward Statistics or Move power versus specific type-matchups
Type-matchup: Sort through and determine which moves would best work versus an opponent of the typing you select.
Note: The damage listed here under Versus is not actually calculated using the in-game damage formula. It is simply calculated using typing weaknesses and resistances from the selected type-matchup modifier along with STAB (if applied) to help sort through and give a general idea as to how powerful certain moves might be towards that selected typing after modifiers are applied. Several moves listed here may have additional effects that might alter actual damage output which are not factored on this specific list. Use damage calculators to find actual damage amounts.
These are a list of several common move combinations Arcanine can perform in Red/Blue. Not every combo going to be game-changing, but some can be pretty fun to play with. Sometimes these can be easily overlooked or forgotten, hence why we find and list them here.
