Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krookodile from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set. This is a stage 2, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Krookodile does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Dark Clamp and for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, it dos 60 damage and prevents the opposing Pokemon from retreating during their next turn. Krookodile's second move is called Bombast and for four energy cards, two each of colorless and darkness, it does 40 damage times the number of prize cards you have taken.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 2 Pokemon card that needs awhile to evolve and requires at least 3 energy cards to attack, I would recommending setting this card up on your bench. Krookodile is a late game finisher, so I would put four energy cards on Krookodile, and when you need to knock out one or two Pokemon to win the game I would put Krookodile into the active Pokemon spot and use Bombast doing 160 damage the first time and then 200 damage the second time and then winning the game. If for some reason Krookodile is in the active Pokemon spot before you are able to knock out 2 of your opponent's Pokemon you'll want to use Dark Clamp instead. I would recommend having a 4-3-2 line of Krookodile, Krokorok, and Sandile in your deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. Towards the end of games this card is a guarantee on letting you win since it can do so much damage that's why I'm giving this card such a high rating, just make sure it isn't knocked out and you can knock out pretty much any Pokemon in 1 move when you've taken 4 and 5 prize cards and are about to win the game. As long as you can build your deck to start winning early, this has to be one of the best closers out there, and I definitely recommend this card for any deck it is likely to fit.
