Simipour -- Next Destinies Set Pokemon Card Review

Simipour Next Destinies Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simipour from the Next Destinies 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. Before I get too far into the review, this card is quite similar to both Simisage and Simisear (I've reviewed both cards already). Simipour's first move is called Collect and lets you draw 3 cards from your deck for 1 water energy card. Simipour's second move is called Stadium Wave and for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, it does 30 damage plus 30 more damage and puts the defending Pokemon to sleep if there is a Stadium Card in play.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card would work nicely in a dual type deck with either Simisage or Simisear since all three cards require Stadium Cards to be effective. So strategy-wise this is a good card to get into play right away so you can draw cards from your deck if you need energy cards or are hoping for stage 1 or 2 Pokemon to evolved your benched Pokemon, you can use Collect to achieve these tasks. Otherwise, make sure you have a Stadium Card in play and use Stadium Wave every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Out of the three Simi's from this deck, I like Simisage the best and gave it a 4 out of 5 rating, all three cards are good but I like that one best. It is nice that on this card the retreat cost is low and can be retreated if a Stadium Card isn't in play.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Simipour from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Vanilluxe from the same set.
