Physical Sweeper Makuhita (Guts)

Makuhita is a remarkable Physical Sweeper. It's designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. In the old days before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Makuhita from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Flame Orb will burn Makuhita at the end of the turn which will activate Makuhita's Guts ability. Use Detect or Protect to help guarantee the Orb activates on your first turn. With Guts, if Makuhita is statused its attack is 1.5x; ignores burn halving physical damage. Facade's damage doubles when the user has a status affliction. Combine that with Guts to seriously give Makuhita a sweet boost.

Facade is a physical 70-base power Normal-type move (power doubles if Makuhita is burn/poison/paralyzed).
Double-Edge is a physical 120-base power Normal-type move (has 1/3 recoil).
Brick Break is a physical STAB-boosted 75-base power Fighting-type move (destroys screens, even if the target is immune).
Earthquake is a physical 100-base power Ground-type move (hits adjacent pokemon. power doubles on dig).
Detect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Makuhita this turn).
