Krookodile is meh. Hes a decent physical sweeper and will do ingame, but competitively, there are better options, like Feraligatr... --- Official Krookodile (Warubiaru) of the BW Boards I don't have Chortles
Yeah there meh. Decent ingame and decent competitively. Biggest problem is dark/ground creates some weaknesses that you don't have to worry about with other ground physicals like Excadrill. --- <last RPG completed>Pokemon HG<Current>FF14<next>Pokemon Black
Krookodile PROs: ------------------------- 2 Good abilities: - Moxie allows full sweeps of teams (Ghost E4, Psychic E4) - Intimidate pads his defense and can cripple some common in-game enemies 2 Good Attacking STABs: Crunch & EQ Access to good coverage attacks (Outrage, Dragon Claw, Stone Edge, Rock Slide, Brick Break, Fire Fang, Thunder Fang) Above-Average Attack (117) & Speed (92) Access to Swords Dance
Krookodile CONs: ------------------------- Dark/Ground is bad defensive typing (5 common weaknesses, 3 uncommon Resistances, 1 common Resistance, 1 common Immunity) Defenses are Average (95/70/70)
He does lose to Excadrill as the best Ground-type in the game, though...
Excadrill PROs: --------------------- Sand Rush 135 base Attack, 88 base Speed Steel Typing + 110 base HP gives it great bulk Access to Swords Dance 1 Good Attacking STABs: EQ Access to good coverage attacks (Rock Slide, Shadow Claw, Brick Break, X-Scissor, Poison Jab) Access to Rapid Spin
Excadrill CONs: ---------------------- 88 Speed is below average outside of SS No Stone Edge --- Pkmn-D FC - 1633 0762 8977 DWDS FC - 1890 7307 8323 Oh, come on, he has a personality.... somewhere between a tamagotchi and a furby. - penultimate lifeform
Try to get a Jolly Sandile, just to make sure he is faster than other pokes to enable sweeps
Crunch Earthquake Rock Slide / Stone Edge (Coverage) Outrage / Dragon Claw / Swords Dance / Hone Claws / filler
Your main weapons are Crunch & EQ. Rock + Ground hits most for neutral.
IIRC only Hydreigon resists both Crunch and EQ and is neutral to Slide/Edge, which is why I liked to carry the Dragon move, but you can use the buffing move if you are carrying Intimidate... --- Pkmn-D FC - 1633 0762 8977 DWDS FC - 1890 7307 8323 Oh, come on, he has a personality.... somewhere between a tamagotchi and a furby. - penultimate lifeform
