Special Sweeper Gloom (Retro)
Gloom is a spectacular Special Sweeper. It's purpose is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Gen1 meta was a totally different monster. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Solar Beam is a special STAB-boosted 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2).
♦ Stun Spore is a status move (paralyzes the target).
♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Gloom's defense is doubled).
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
Wondering what moves can Gloom learn? Here is the list of moves this Pokemon can learn in this selected generation.
Sort and organize the learnset by move type, category, accuracy, and power. Bolded moves will gain the same-type attack bonus (STAB) if this Pokemon uses them.
These are a list of several common move combinations Gloom can perform in Red/Blue. Not every combo going to be game-changing, but some can be pretty fun to play with. Sometimes these can be easily overlooked or forgotten, hence why we find and list them here.
