Dream World ability: Anger Point – Boosts attack stat to maximum level if user receives a critical hit
Location found (Black/White): Relic Castle

Evolution family: Sandile > Krokorok at level 29 > Krookodile at level 40

Krookodile holds 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 to Tyrannitar should indeed be a boon). The downside to his typing is that it does leave Krookodile 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.

    I like the sunglasses look this guy has. He's so shady. It's weird to tink that crocodiles are so under-represented in these games, really with just Feraligator, and he's an opposite typing.
