Krookodile -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Krookodile Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krookodile from the X and Y 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 Bother, for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, this move does 50 damage, plus if you get a heads when flipping a coin, your opponent cannot play any supporter cards during their next turn.  Krookodile's second and final move is called Knock Back, this move requires four energy cards, two each of darkness and colorless, and does 80 damage, plus your opponent must switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.

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.  Both of these cards are average so they could be used in a deck without Krookodile, but of course you'd like to use them with their final evolution.  Because Krookodile is at least an average card, you can definitely use this entire Pokemon family in a deck.  I would like to zone in specifically on this Krookodile card and its move called Knock Back.  Because this move does 80 damage and then sends that Pokemon to the bench, it is pretty much a spread damage type move, so you'll want to include this Pokemon in a spread damage type deck.  I wouldn't include more than a 3-2-2 line of Sandile, Krokorok, and Krookodile in your deck since all three evolutions are slow, but this line is definitely a line a deck can be built around.  Krookodile would be your main Pokemon and then you would need several Pokemon with moves that do 10 or 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.  That way you could use Knock Back several turns, retreat it to your bench, and spread damage around using that other Pokemon, knocking out multiple Pokemon at once.

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 X and Y set that would work perfectly in a spread damage type deck.  The reason I'm not giving this card more than an average rating is because of its slowness and high retreat cost.  But overall, this Pokemon family could definitely be used in a deck and get a 4 out of 5 rating from me, individually each of the Pokemon in this line were 3 out of 5.
