Physical Sweeper Muk (Retro)

Muk is a wonderful Physical Sweeper. It attempts to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Generation one was a completely different game from what it is now. Remember before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.

Hyper Beam is a physical 150-base power Normal-type move (can't move next turn if target or sub is not koed).
Body Slam is a physical 85-base power Normal-type move (30% chance to paralyze the target).
Sludge is a physical STAB-boosted 65-base power Poison-type move (40% chance to poison the target).
Acid Armor is a status move (raises your Muk's defense by 2 stages).
Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
