Special Sweeper Tentacool (Retro)
Tentacool is a spectacular Special Sweeper. It was designed to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. The rules of gen-one were quite varied from today. Don't forget back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Bubble Beam is a special STAB-boosted 65-base power Water-type move (33% chance to lower the target's speed by 1 stage).
♦ Blizzard is a special 120-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
♦ Ice Beam is a special 95-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
♦ Mega Drain is a special 40-base power Grass-type move (Tentacool recovers 50% of the damage dealt).
♦ Barrier is a status move (raises your Tentacool's defense by 2 stages).

These are a list of several common move combinations Tentacool 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.
