Croagunk -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Croagunk Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Croagunk from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Croagunk is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with a HP of 60.  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 one move.  The only move that this card has is called Poison Up, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to put 3 more damage counters on the defending Pokemon in between turns if the defending Pokemon is already Poisoned.

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 more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, I cannot recommend using this card in a deck.  It practically has no use as a starter type Pokemon since it can't do any damage when attacking.  The only strategy with this card would be to find a quick way to poison the defending Pokemon, switch that Pokemon out for free, then put Croagunk in the active Pokemon spot using Poison Up, therefore having Poison Up do 30 more damage since the defending Pokemon is already poisoned.  If you don't have a way to get the defending Pokemon poisoned during play, do not use this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Toxicroak, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  This is a card you do not want to consider using in a deck if you can't poison the defending Pokemon, and even then, this card requires a fair amount of work to even have something positive with this card.  So without Toxicroak, do not use this card in a deck, it definitely is not good.
