Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simisear from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Simisear doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Water's Power which does 30 damage for two colorless energy cards. And if the defending Pokemon has any water energy cards attached to it, that Pokemon is asleep. Simisear's second move is called Flamethrower which does 70 damage for three energy cards, one fire and two colorless. However when you use this move you have to discard an energy card from Simisear.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you can almost use this card in any deck because this card only requires one fire energy card. You would hope to use this card against a water type Pokemon so you can put it to sleep with Water's Power, and that is very beneficial to Simisear you can put it to sleep since it is weak to water type Pokemon. I would probably attach more than three energy cards to Simisear if it was on my bench so that way you could use Flamethrower numerous turns in a row without not having enough energy cards.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is pretty average, I like how it can do damage and inflict a special condition with Water's Power but it is only super effective against one type, and soon as that water Pokemon wakes up it can probably knock out Simisear in one move. So, overall this card is average, it has average hp, average retreat cost, and average moves.
