Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simisear from the Black and White Pokemon Card Set. Simisage 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 Flame Burst and for one fire energy card, it does 20 damage, plus 20 more damage to 2 of your opponent's benched Pokemon. Simisear's second move is called Fury Swipes and for three colorless energy cards, this move 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 Flame Burst is a spread damage type move, I would include this card in a spread damage type deck. And because Flame Burst only requires one energy card, and Fury Swipes can take any type of energy, I would recommend putting this card in any type spread damage type deck, because it should be fairly easy to either get a fire energy card or special energy card on Simisear to use Flame Burst no matter the deck. As you can tell, I would use Simisear solely for spread damage, as soon as I get one energy card on Simisear I would move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Flame Burst every turn until Simisear either is knocked out, you win the game, or you need to retreat. I don't think I would attach more than one energy card to Simisear, but if you want to be safe you could always attach three energy cards total and then use Fury Swipes any time you want to do major damage to your opponent's active Pokemon. I would use a 2-2 line of Pansear and Simisear in any spread damage type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. This is a very good spread damage type Pokemon card. It is one of the best I've reviewed so far and it is definitely the best uncommon card I've reviewed from the Black and White set so far. The only things to watch out for when using this card is that although Simisear's hp is average, it really isn't that high so it might not last as long as you wanted in the active Pokemon spot, and if you're not the luckiest that day, Fury Swipes may end up doing 0 damage for you a couple of turns. But overall it is a great card, and one I would recommend wholeheartedly.
