Krookodileholds his own in battle. He's especially fun to experiment with because his typing is unique – no other evolutionary family has the Ground/Dark combo. And it's an excellent combo at that, with two immunities, Electric and Psychic, and four good resistances, Rock, Poison, Ghost and Dark (a double resistance toTyrannitarshould indeed be a boon). The downside to his typing is that it does leaveKrookodile vulnerable with five types, but at least he doesn't suffer any double weaknesses.

As for moveset, you have a ton of options (again, because of Krookodiles typing), but Earthquake and Crunch are no-brainers for heavy-hitting STAB attacks.
