I can't think of any type that is resisted by Grass that's physical other than Ground, so it might not work. He can't even use his decent 94 attack due to no STAB and best reliable move is Strength (Explosion kills him and Hyper Beam is probably not going to kill anything, plus low PP). Overall, he doesn't have much over Rhyperior other than not being weak to Water and Grass, which will still do a decent chunk due to his low 54 special, plus his 74 HP. Plus, Zapdos has his way with Ferrothorn, which is pretty bad. The best set he could probably run is Leech Seed / Thunder Wave / Explosion / Strength. You could probably stick Mimic over Leech Seed since Leech Seed isn't that good in Gen 1. Thunder Wave is his best asset, but things will probably still outspeed it because lolbase20.
