Special Sweeper Clefairy (Retro)

Clefairy is an interesting Special Sweeper. It's goal is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Generation one was a completely different game from what it is now. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.

Blizzard is a special 120-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
Ice Beam is a special 95-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
Thunderbolt is a special 95-base power Electric-type move (10% chance to paralyze the target).
Psychic is a special 90-base power Psychic-type move (33% chance to lower the target's special by 1 stage).
Bubble Beam is a special 65-base power Water-type move (33% chance to lower the target's speed by 1 stage).
