Croagunk #65/149 -- 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 second of two Croagunk cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  This Croagunk card is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  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 Poisoning Jab which requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and psychic, and does 20 damage plus poisons the defending Pokemon.

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 tomorrow, 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, I wouldn't try to put Croagunk in the active Pokemon spot immediately to start the game, but instead I would get two energy cards on this Pokemon on your bench, then when an opportune time comes, put this card in the active Pokemon spot and then use Poison Jab.  I would actually use this card on its own in a deck, it would have to be a psychic type deck, or deck that inflicts a lot of special conditions on the defending Pokemon, and I would include just one of these cards in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  This card is much better than yesterday's Croagunk card.  I like how this card has more hp, and a better move, that not only does damage but automatically inflicts a special condition on the defending Pokemon.  So if you plan on using a Croagunk card in your deck, this is the one I would recommend.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
