Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krookodile from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set. Krookodile is a stage 2, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Krookodile does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Piston Headbutt, this move requires one darkness energy card and does 30 damage, plus you may move an energy card attached to your opponent's active Pokemon to one of their benched Pokemon. Krookodile's second move is called Hammer In, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 80 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Krookodile is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Sandile into play and then evolve it into Krokorok before you can evolve Krokorok into Krookodile, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days. The first two Pokemon in this line from Plasma Freeze are way below average, so in order for me to want to use this card I would really have to like Krookodile or look to other Sandile and Krokorok cards from other sets. So with that in mind, I would not recommend using Krookodile from this set with the Plasma Freeze Sandile and Krokorok cards. I say this because neither of Krookodile's moves make me want to use it that badly. Hammer In does do above average damage, but there are plenty of other cards out there that also do that kind of damage. Plus with a high retreat cost, if you have to retreat Krookodile, you have to potentially discard all of the energy cards you put on it for Hammer In. So again, I would not use Krookodile in a deck, but if you choose to I would only use a 2-1-1 line of Sandile, Krokorok, and Krookodile in a darkness type deck. I would make sure not to move Sandile or Krokorok into the active Pokemon spot, I would evolve them into Krookodile on the bench and then put three energy cards on it and use Hammer In every turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon card set. Even though I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck, I still think this card is alright on the surface, it has a good hp, and two decent moves, actually one above average. But if you look at Krookodile as a whole with Sandile and Krokorok, I cannot recommend using them together in a deck. Altogether I would give this line a 1 out of 5 rating, I have given the cards individually a 1, 2, and 3 out of 5 rating respectively, but I just want to make sure that no one plans on using this Pokemon family in their deck because it just isn't good.
