Physical Sweeper Dodrio (Retro)
Dodrio is a decent Physical Sweeper. It is designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. The rules of gen-one were quite varied from today. In the dark days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Double-Edge is a physical STAB-boosted 100-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil).
♦ Drill Peck is a physical STAB-boosted 80-base power Flying-type move that deals a mighty amount of damage.
♦ Sky Attack is a physical STAB-boosted 140-base power Flying-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2).
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Dodrio's defense is doubled).
