Krokorok -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Krokorok Emerging Powers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krokorok from the Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Set.  Krokorok is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Krokorok doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Bite which does 20 damage for one colorless energy card.  Krokorok's second move is called Crunch which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, and does 40 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, it allows you to discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card that has a stage 2 evolution in Krookodile, I would recommend keeping Krokorok on the bench and evolving it into Krookodile before putting it into play, I would do this because Krookodile can do much more damage than Krokorok and it has a higher hp.  There is one Krookodile card in this set, and I've reviewed that card on my blog previously.  If you have to put Krokorok into play, I would recommend using Crunch every turn since it does more damage but if you don't think you're going to be able to evolve Krokorok into Krookodile I would only put one energy card on Krokorok and only use Bite so I wouldn't lose two more energy cards when Krokorok is knocked out.  If I were to use Krokorok in a deck, I would use it in a mostly fighting type deck, and I would make sure to include Krookodile in that deck, and I would use a 4-3-2 line of Sandile, Krokorok, and Krookodile.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  This card is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card, the only thing average about this card is that it has 90 hp, other than that, it has a high retreat cost, and two weak moves.  So once again, if you want to use this card in a deck, make sure to include its evolution in that same deck.
