Simisage -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Simisage Pokemon Card Emerging Powers set

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simisage from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. It does not have a special ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Fire Power which takes 2 colorless energy cards and does 30 damage, plus if either of the energy cards you use for this attack are fire type, the defending Pokemon is now burned. Simisage's second move is called Seed Bomb which does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, in this case, 2 colorless energy cards, and one grass energy card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would try and use this card in a dual type deck that includes fire and grass type Pokemon, that way you can utilize Pansage's first move that does a special condition if you have a fire energy card attached to it. Since both of its moves require a majority of the energy cards to be anything, you could almost put this card in a majority fire type deck, and that way if you were facing a mostly water type deck, you could use this card to do major damage on the grass Pokemon. If you have time to set this card up on your bench, I would definitely use Seed Bomb once the defending Pokemon is burned since when you use the move you don't have to discard or do anything to Simisage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is pretty average overall, it has 90 hp, which is average, and does 60 damage for three energy cards which is definitely average. It is above average with its first move since it can do damage and inflict a special condition, but overall it isn't anything good or bad. If you're looking for a decent stage 1 grass type Pokemon to use in your deck this may be a viable option to use.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
