Physical Sweeper Hitmonlee (Retro)
Hitmonlee is a pretty decent Physical Sweeper. It attempts to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. The original meta-game back in the RBY days was ridiculous. In the old days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Jump Kick is a physical STAB-boosted 70-base power Fighting-type move (Hitmonlee takes 1 hp of damage if it misses).
♦ Double-Edge is a physical 100-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil).
♦ Body Slam is a physical 85-base power Normal-type move (30% chance to paralyze the target).
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
♦ Substitute is a status move (Hitmonlee takes 1/4 its max hp to put in a substitute).
