Toxicroak Lv.32 MD

 

Alright, today’s COTD today is a decent attempt at what Toxicroak should do. With that out of the way, this card sucks… The first attack is decent and is close to what the second attack should be like, 20 damage plus a single coin flip for poison and paralyze, all for only one (P)… The second attack sucks, nobody is going to want to play 3 energy for 60… It just isn’t worth it. The HP is decent, 90 is enough to save it from Psylock and attacks that do 80 damage (Which there are quite a few of.) Overall, it needs to do more damage than 60 to be good…

 

Pros –

90HP

Cool first attack

 

Cons –

Bad weakness

Horrible second attack

 

Modified – If only the second attack was better… 2/5 (+1 for the awesome first attack.)

 

Limited – Shove that (P) energy in there and you‘ve got a winner! 4/5

 

Why does the pokemon card maker ruin good ideas with bad cards?

Alazor Toxicroak (Majestic Dawn)

So it's hp is average. It's 1st attack is pretty good for 1 energy it can paralyze and poison.
It's second attack is below par for a stage 1.  60 damage for 3 energy isn't as good as it used to be.

Modified 2.1/5

Limited: 3.5/5 It has a cheap 1st attack and a small retreat cost, so Wynaut?

Toxicroak

Welcome back, today we'll be looking at Toxicroak, in my opinion a prime choice for any poison/status deck. For a mere single psychic energy Toxicroak will do 20 damage, poison and potentially paralyze.  Inevitably you'll have dealt 30 damage, pending any status healing cards/effects, combo that with the potential innability to attack or switch(remove the status') can be nerve racking and devastating! This could also be comboed further by adding a Weezing or two to your bench to double or triple the poison damge... so with potentially four Weezing on your bench, the twenty damage from the attack and the base poison damage you're looking at dishing 70 damage for only one energy! I know it doens't seem likely to have all of these pieces in place, but oh man when the stars align it will be awe inspiring! Overall the hit points aren't bad, 90 on a stage one isn't anything to brag about, but there are worse... As far as the bottom stats go, the weakness has potential to be a pain, especially with the ever popular Gardellade, but the single retreat cost isn't bad...

Modified- 3.9/5

In limited this guy can be a beast! if you can pull of the stage one, which shouldn't be too awful hard to pull off, with a single energy you're looking at two status effects and damage... quick! use it!

Limited- 4.5/5
