Physical Sweeper Shellder (Retro)

♦ Tri Attack is a physical 80-base power Normal-type move that deals a decent amount of damage.
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Shellder's defense is doubled).
♦ Substitute is a status move (Shellder takes 1/4 its max hp to put in a substitute).
