Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simisage from the Black and White Pokemon Card Set. Simisage 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. Simisage doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Seed Bomb and for one grass energy card this move does 30 damage. Simisage's second move is called Fury Swipes and for three colorless energy cards it does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip three coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this card only requires one energy card to attack you can definitely put this card into the active Pokemon spot right away. Since Fury Swipes takes colorless energy cards you can basically put this card in any type deck, and use a special energy card to take care of Seed Bomb. I would actually prefer Fury Swipes over Seed Bomb every turn unless you need to knock out the defending Pokemon and you can knock it out by doing damage of 30 or less, if that is the case I would use Seed Bomb over Fury Swipes. If I were to use this Pokemon in a deck, I would use it in any type deck, but it is always easier to use in a grass type deck, and use a 2-1 or 2-2 line of Pansage and Simisage.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very average stage 1 Pokemon card. It has a good hp, and two solid moves. The reason it doesn't get a higher rating is this card doesn't do anything special, it doesn't inflict a special condition, spread damage, or for sure do a lot of damage, so that is why I'm giving this card an average rating.
