They both have a lot of weaknesses. However, I would say Krookodile. Krookodile can learn powerful moves. If it's Jolly Nature, that will make it even better. Even though it's Attack Stat is a little lower than Excadrill's, I would still go with it. I feel that it also looks better than Excadrill.

This is only a Suggestion. You should go with the Pokemon that you like better.

Hope this helps!

I'd say go with Krookodile if you don't have Sand support, since that's what makes Exca shine. I'd recommend giving him:

Krookodile @ Choice Band/Choice Scarf

Ability: Moxie

EV's: 252 Atk, 252 Spd.


Thunder Fang

Nature: Jolly/Adamant

MoxieDile is a force to be reckoned with, especially when he's Banded. However, he can be outsped, so a Scarf is also a good idea.

If you do want to go with Exca though, this is what I'd suggest:

Excadrill @ Air Balloon

Ability: Sand Rush

EV's: 252 Atk, 252 Spd.


Swords Dance
Rock Slide(Excadrill can't learn Stone Edge)
X-Scissor/Brick Break

Nature: Adamant/Jolly

This guy will tear through teams, especially if you get a Sandstorm going. EQ hits hard with the STAB bonus, Rock Slide gives him some good coverage, and Swords Dance boosts his Attack to massive levels. The choice between X-Scissor and Brick Break is yours, as they both have their advantages and disadvantages.
