Croagunk -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Croagunk Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Croagunk from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Croagunk is a Basic, Psychic 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.  This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Corkscrew Punch, for one Colorless Energy card, this move does 10 damage.  The second move on this card is called Frog Hop, for two Energy cards, one each of Psychic and Colorless, this move does 20 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

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, you're never going to want to use a card with only 60 HP, but as a first step to getting any Toxicroak card into play, this card isn't bad at all, since you can use it to start the game and do 10 damage the first turn and up to 40 damage the second turn.  So if you are building a Psychic type deck, this card wouldn't make for a bad starter type Pokemon, it is just a card you don't want to really use on its own.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Toxicroak, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Burning Shadows set.  Like I mentioned above, there is really no reason to use this card on its own, but if you are trying to use Toxicroak in your deck, this specific Croagunk card isn't a bad card at all, having an average HP, and two decent moves, it just won't last long later in games.
