Croagunk #64/149 -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Croagunk Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Croagunk from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two Croagunk cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Croagunk is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Croagunk does not have an Ability, and it only has the one move.  Its only move is called Paralyzing Jab which requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic, and does 20 damage plus paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Croagunk is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Toxicroak, which I'll be reviewing in two days, you'll probably want to use this card with Toxicroak.  Because Croagunk can't attack right away by having an attack that requires only one energy card, this card is not cut out to be a starter Pokemon card.  And, if you're not using this card with Toxicroak, I would not recommend using this card in a deck on its own.  However, if for some reason you have this card in your deck and it is put in the active Pokemon spot, you'll have no choice but to use Paralyzing Jab every turn.  But again, you shouldn't have this card in your deck on its own, so you shouldn't have to worry about having Croagunk in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card.  This card does have a good hp, low retreat cost and a fairly decent move, but the reason I'm giving this card a below average rating is that there are much better basic Pokemon cards out there that either can attack quicker, attack with two energy cards and has a higher hp, or Pokemon that are just better in general.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Croagunk from the Boundaries Crossed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second Croagunk card, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
