Krokorok -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Krokorok Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krokorok from the Flashfire 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 Dark Clamp, for one darkness energy card this move does 10 damage and makes your opponent unable to retreat during their next turn.  Krokorok's second move is called Double Swing, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 60 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Krokork 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 there is not a Krookodile card in this set, so you'll have to read my previous reviews on Krookodile to see if you should use this Pokemon with Krookodile.  So if you read yesterday's review of Sandile, you will know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card and a card that should not be used on its own and if you decide to use Krokorok really should be put in the active Pokemon spot, it should be evolved into Krokorok on the bench.  However, I would not recommend using Krokorok in a deck for the same reason I didn't recommend using Sandile from this set, I would not use it because Krokorok's main move, Double Swing, is a coin based move, meaning it could end up doing zero damage every single turn.  If you were to use Sandile and Krokorok in your deck, I wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line, and I would hope for some luck when using these cards because you'll need it, but if you do get some heads, Sandile can do up to 30 damage a turn and Krokorok can do 120 damage a 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 from the Flashfire set.  This card can do a good amount of damage, but unfortunately it just isn't that great of card, besides having an average hp, everything else on this card is below average, especially the two moves it has.  So overall, if you look at Krokorok and Sandile combined, I would probably give these two cards a 1 out of 5 rating, they are both below average individually and terrible together, I would look elsewhere for darkness type Pokemon for your deck.
