Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krookodile from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It is the final evolution of Sandile. This card has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Krookodile's Ability is called Black Eyes which says that whenever Krookodile is your active Pokemon you can flip a coin, if you get a heads then you may discard an energy card from the defending Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Krookodile only has one move called Thrash which does 70 damage plus 20 more damage if you want to do 20 damage to Krookodile, you can do all this for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Krookodile's Ability needs to have Krookodile in the active Pokemon spot you'll want to make sure you can keep Krookodile out there as long as possible, so make sure and have three energy cards on it before you put it into the active Pokemon spot, then I would suggest using Thrash and doing 90 damage every turn to knock Pokemon out faster and using Potions and other HP restoring items to keep Krookodile alive longer, and if you flip heads hopefully the defending Pokemon won't have enough energy cards on it to attack.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. I will talk more about this card and why I like it in my deck review on YouTube but I like the fact this card can do a major amount of damage and prevent the opponent from attacking at the same time. If you pair this card with other fighting type cards from the Emerging Powers set that has the ability to discard energy cards from the active Pokemon, your opponent's may never have enough energy cards to attack. The only downside about this card is that it has a high retreat cost.
