Physical Sweeper Crawdaunt (Hyper Cutter)

Crawdaunt is a phenomenal Physical Sweeper. It is designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Crawdaunt from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Life Orb boosts the power of Crawdaunt's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. With Hyper Cutter, prevents other pokemon from lowering Crawdaunt's attack stat stage.

Double-Edge is a physical 120-base power Normal-type move (has 1/3 recoil).
Return is a physical 0-base power Normal-type move (max 102 power at maximum happiness).
Sludge Bomb is a physical 90-base power Poison-type move (30% chance to poison the target).
Brick Break is a physical 75-base power Fighting-type move (destroys screens, even if the target is immune).
Ancient Power is a physical 60-base power Rock-type move (10% chance to raise all stats by 1 stage (not acc/eva)).
