Krokorok -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Krokorok Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krokorok from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Krokorok is a 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 two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Krokorok does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bite, for one darkness energy card, this move does 20 damage.  Krokorok's second move is called Corkscrew Punch, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 50 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Krokorok is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Sandile into play (I reviewed Sandile from this set yesterday) and then evolve Sandile into Krokorok.  Krokorok does have a stage 2 evolution in Krookodile that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Krokorok is the final evolution in this line.  So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Sandile was a very poor basic Pokemon card, so in knowing that, this Krokorok card will really have to be good in order for me to want to use it.  But unfortunately this card just isn't that good either so I would avoid both of the two Pokemon in this line.  If you were to use this card in a deck, I wouldn't use more than 1 each of Sandile and Krokorok, and I would try and evolve Sandile into Krokorok on the bench, get at least one energy card on Krokorok and then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Bite until you have three energy cards on it, then use Corkscrew Punch every other turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card. Even though this card has an average hp, and two moves, I am still giving this card a below average rating because neither of Krokorok's moves are very good, Bite is okay, but Corkscrew Punch does below average damage.  So coupled with Sandile from this set, I would give this line so far a 1 out of 5 rating, Sandile was a 1 and Krokorok was a 2.  I would avoid this two Pokemon at all costs.
