Really, the best thing I can say about Toxicroak is he's a very good offensive counter to Keldeo, since there isn't much Keldeo can do to the toad. Aside from that, I've found him to be exceedingly average. I haven't used him, but I've seen a surprising resurgence of him on the ladder; I'm assuming it's in response to the rise of Keldeo. No Toxicroak has ever managed to do jack shit to me, but I won't comment on it's tiering since, as I said, I've never actually used the damn thing.
