Special Sweeper Articuno (Retro)
Articuno is a legendary Special Sweeper. It's meant to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. First generation Pokemon had alot of struggles to deal with. Remember prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Ice Beam is a special STAB-boosted 95-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
♦ Bubble Beam is a special 65-base power Water-type move (33% chance to lower the target's speed by 1 stage).
♦ Water Gun is a special 40-base power Water-type move that deals damage.
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Articuno's defense is doubled).
