Special Sweeper Venomoth (Retro)
Venomoth is a sensational Special Sweeper. It's primary goal is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. The original meta-game back in the RBY days was ridiculous. In the dark days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Psybeam is a special 65-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to confuse the target).
♦ Solar Beam is a special 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2).
♦ Mega Drain is a special 40-base power Grass-type move (Venomoth recovers 50% of the damage dealt).
♦ Stun Spore is a status move (paralyzes the target).
♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Venomoth's defense is doubled).
