Pokemon Card of the Day: Krookodile (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Krookodile from the Black and White set. This is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon that is the final evolution of Sandile. It has an hp of 140, a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Krookodile doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, its first move is called Torment which does 30 damage for two colorless energy cards. Besides doing the damage you can prevent the defending Pokemon from using one of its attacks the next turn. Krookodile's second move is called Death Roll and takes four energy cards, two each of fighting and colorless and does 60 damage plus 40 more damage if the defending Pokemon has any damage on it. So as far as strategy goes, Krookodile is a good defensive Pokemon card since you can move it into play when your opponent has a Pokemon in play that has one powerful move, you can move Krookodile into the active Pokemon spot, use Torment, disable that one move, and then the next turn be able to do 100 damage with Death Roll. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. I like how it can not only do a high amount of damage but it can prevent a lot of damage from happening to Krookodile which makes its 140 hp seem even higher. So thanks for reading today's review of Krookodile from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Liepard from the same set.
