Physical Sweeper Venonat (Retro)

Venonat is an astounding Physical Sweeper. It attempts to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. In gen one, Venonat played quite differently. Before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.

Double-Edge is a physical 100-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil).
Tackle is a physical 35-base power Normal-type move that deals damage.
Leech Life is a physical STAB-boosted 20-base power Bug-type move (Venonat recovers 50% of the damage dealt).
Stun Spore is a status move (paralyzes the target).
Reflect is a status move (while active, your Venonat's defense is doubled).
