Simipour -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Simipour Emerging Powers set Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simipour from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have an ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Grass' Power which takes two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage plus if you have any grass energy cards attached to Simipour, it heals 20 damage from Simipour with each grass energy card. Simipour's second move is called Rushing Water which does 60 damage for three energy cards, one water and two colorless, and also lets you move an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon to one of the opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card that is quite similar to Simisear that I reviewed a few days ago. This card can be very good in a grass and water type deck, used with Simisage. Besides that, Rushing Water is an average move that allows you to move an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon, however it isn't too great especially if the defending Pokemon is close to being knocked out, you're just aiding the Pokemon they are more than likely going to bring in. I do like the fact that Grass' Power makes can heal Simipour and make its 90 hp seem a little higher than it is.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. For me this card is way too similar to Simisear and isn't as good. It isn't worth it to put three energy cards on a stage 1 Pokemon card with only 90 hp to do 60 damage when many stage 2 cards out there with much higher hp does at least 60 damage for three energy cards. I would use this card with grass type Pokemon to utilize Grass' Power, otherwise I wouldn't put this card into the active Pokemon spot if I didn't have to.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Simipour from the Emerging Powers set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Swanna from the Emerging Powers set.
