Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krokorok from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Set. This is stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Krokorok doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Mud-Slap and for two colorless energy cards it does 30 damage. Krokorok's second move is called Corkscrew Punch and for four energy cards, two each of darkness and colorless, it does 70 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card with a stage 2 evolution in Krookodile, you'll want to evolve Krokorok into Krookodile as soon as possible because Krookodile has a much higher hp, and can do a lot more damage, especially late in the game. But if you have to use Krokorok in the active Pokemon spot, I would recommend using Mud-Slap every turn unless you know you can evolve Krokorok into Krookodile shortly, before Krokorok gets knocked out, then I would put four energy cards on Krokorok and use Corkscrew Punch. I wouldn't use Corkscrew Punch otherwise because with only 90 hp, you'll be wasting a lot of energy cards by putting four on one stage 1 Pokemon card. I would base a deck around Krookodile so I would have a 4-3-2 line of Sandile, Krokorok, and Krookodile.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This is an average card to below average card, if I did decimal places on my ratings I would give this one a 3.0 out of 5. I like the fact that this card can do 70 damage, but it is very slow and its retreat cost is extremely high, but since it has an average hp, you may be able to last in the active Pokemon spot long enough to use Corkscrew Punch without getting knocked out.
