Special Sweeper Dewgong (Retro)

Dewgong is an astounding Special Sweeper. It's meant to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Things definately worked differently in the first generation. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.

Blizzard is a special STAB-boosted 120-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
Ice Beam is a special STAB-boosted 95-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
Surf is a special STAB-boosted 95-base power Water-type move that deals a considerable amount of damage.
Bubble Beam is a special STAB-boosted 65-base power Water-type move (33% chance to lower the target's speed by 1 stage).
Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
Substitute is a status move (Dewgong takes 1/4 its max hp to put in a substitute).
