A Special Sweeper is one of several roles a Pokémon can fill. Special Sweepers often excel in the Special Attack and Speed stats and use Special Attacks as their medium for inflicting great damage on opposing Pokémon. Coming in many forms, most are faced with the difficulty of having to deal with Blissey and other such Special Walls. Since special walls are significantly more difficult to tackle, Special Sweepers are generally less plentiful than their Physical Sweeper counterparts, who can fight their way around and through Physical Walls with greater ease.
