Body Slam is a physical STAB-boosted 85-base power Normal-type move (30% chance to paralyze the target).
Peck is a physical STAB-boosted 35-base power Flying-type move that deals damage.
Fly is a physical STAB-boosted 70-base power Flying-type move (flies up on first turn, then strikes the next turn).
Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
Reflect is a status move (while active, your Farfetch'd's defense is doubled).
