Physical Sweeper Raticate (Retro)
Raticate is a spectacular Physical Sweeper. It is primarily designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Things definately worked differently in the first generation. In the dark days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Double-Edge is a physical STAB-boosted 100-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil).
♦ Dig is a physical 100-base power Ground-type move (digs underground turn 1, strikes turn 2).
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
♦ Substitute is a status move (Raticate takes 1/4 its max hp to put in a substitute).
