Special Sweeper Magneton (Retro)
Magneton is a pretty decent Special Sweeper. It is meant to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Gen1 meta was a totally different monster. Remember prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Thunder Shock is a special STAB-boosted 40-base power Electric-type move (10% chance to paralyze the target).
♦ Thunder Wave is a status move (paralyzes the target).
♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Magneton's defense is doubled).
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).

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 Magneton 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.
