Krokorok -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Krokorok Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Krokorok from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set.  Krokorok is a Stage 1, Darkness type Pokemon card, with a 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 Knock Off, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage, and allows you to discard a random card from your opponent's hand.  Krokorok's second move is called Darkness Fang, for three Energy cards, two Darkness and one Colorless, this move does 60 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.  Sandile does have a Stage 2 evolution in Krookodile, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, 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 my review of Sandile, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon overall.  Even though Sandile had an above average HP and two moves, I gave it a below average rating mainly because it was slow on the attack and when attacking it was under-powered.  So knowing this about Sandile and looking at this Krokorok card, it is similar to its Basic evolution form, in that it has a solid HP, two moves, yet isn't worth using in a deck since it is not that powerful.  Knock Off can be useful for disrupting your opponent's strategy and if you're playing 4 Double Colorless Energy cards it can be used for only one Energy card, but Darkness Fang only does average damage and isn't worth the three Energy cards needed to attack on a Stage 1 card.

Pokemon Card Rating:  
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average to slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card overall.  This card really doesn't have any negatives but it just isn't that great overall.  It is somewhat slow on the attack and can't do more than average damage.  Together with Sandile from this set, I would give the two cards a 2 out of 5 rating, look elsewhere for some Darkness type Pokemon to use in your deck.
