Croconaw, The Big Jaw Pokémon. If it loses a fang, a new one grows in its place keeping a consistent 48 fangs in its mouth. It opens its Jaw wide when attacking. Once it has clamped the opponent with it's claws, it will not let go because its fangs are forked back so they are impossible to remove when sunk in

Strategy Using Croconaw

The idea of this Croconaw set is to build up attack strength upon the already good stat. It's defenses can help it survive most attacks hence the reason for Swords dance. Making this a special sweeper will be a mistake in my opinion and stab doesn't really help, unless you've baton passed onto this pokemon to increase its special attack but that is only one situation. Also, you can play around with its phsyical attacks, such as adding return over brick break etc. Although this set would be better if Croconaw evolved into a Feraligatr, it will have to do.
