Unlimited - I don't think so. 1/5
Modified - I'm a fan of gust of wind-type attacks. Not only that but Poison Rub does 20 damage and poisons the Pokemon you bring out. This can be very disruptive and annoying for the opponent. Get 2 Nidoqueens in play and you can attack for no energy! Pride attack is cool but you need a few queens on your bench for it to do decent damage. 3/5
Limited - Good luck getting out a stage 2. If you do get it out, you'll be pretty unstoppable. Poison Rub is pwnage. 3/5

Nidoking Lv. 55 SW
In this corner, with a height of 4 feet 7 inches, weighing in at more than 136 pounds; today’s heavyweight contender is, the king (Lol.) With 130 HP and Weakness to psychic, this pokemon is not getting OHKO’ed very easily. The first attack is good, you can either do 20 damage and poison or switch the defending pokemon then poison and do 20, either way your going to hit the pokemon you want. The second attack on this thing is slightly expensive (Can be helped with Nidoqueen MT) but, it has the chance (Even though a slight one.) to a maximum of a massive 180 damage! Even if the king doesn’t do 180 it still could do 120 or 150, which are both very large numbers. Now for the best part, for every Nidoqueen MT on your bench (As long as she can use her ‘body) all of the kings attacks cost (c) less, that means that with 2 on the bench, the first attack costs nothing and the second attack costs (p) (p)! Just like Nidoqueen, the king has a big 2 retreat cost, just big enough you don’t want to use it but small enough that you can. Also, Nidoqueen (Delta) from DF lets you search for any pokemon once per turn!
Pros –
Maximum of 180 damage!
130 HP
Cheaper attacks once Nidoqueen MT is out
Switching opponents pokemon is good
Cons –
2 retreat cost
Co-dependant on Nidoqueen
Unlimited – Sorry, not even the king does good here. 1/5
Modified – This card is great once used in the right deck. 4/5
Limited – No Nidoqueen = expensive attack for 4 energies. 3.5/5
Don’t mess with the king,
I saw Elvis yesterday... He sat between me and Bigfoot on the UFO.”
