Nidoking d
Modified:
Like you may expect, Nidoking d works well in combination with Nidoqueen d. Nidoqueen's Invitiation Poke-Power can give you a Pokemon to discard each turn for Dark Horn, but overall, both of Nidoking's attacks are mediocre, and fall short of being playable.

Its weakness to psychic also weakens its modified playability.

Modified: 2/5

Unlimited:
One of hundreds of slow, weak Stage2's to choose from.
Unlimited: 1/5

Limited:
Not only do you need Nidoran M and Nidorino, but dark energy to be able to use its second attack. Horrible.
Limited: 1/5

Nidoking d

Nidoking d isn’t very good. Linear attack is useful, but not worth it for a stage 2. Dark Horn is decent, but again, not worth it for a stage 2. 120 HP is nice, but Psychic weakness is terrible right now. There are better cards out there.

Unlimited: 1/5

Slow stage 2 that’s vulnerable to Energy Removal. No thanks!

Modified: 2/5

Dark type would be good against the highly popular Banette ex… IF IT WASN’T WEAK TO PSYCHIC! Too slow to and too little damage to be useful.

Limited: 1/5

Slow stage 2, bad weakness, and too hard to get Dark Energy.

Nidoking delta

Modified 2/5 - The artwork may look cool, but as a stage 2, it has an average attack without any special Poke-Powers and Poke-Bodies. Activating the extra Bench Attack clause with his 2nd attack is actually very costly. Linear Attack is pretty average, and that's that.

Nidoking

Nidoking is a good looking pokemon. It has nice stats and decent attacks however, I don't think its good enough to play at Cities.

Unlimited: 1/5
