Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simisear from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. Simisear 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 two colorless energy card retreat cost. Simisear does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move it has is called Searing Flame, this move requires one fire energy card and does 20 damage plus burns the defending Pokemon. Simisear's second move is called Flame Blast, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 40 damage plus 20 more damage for each fire energy card attached to this Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Simisear is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pansear into play (I reviewed Pansear from this set yesterday) and then evolve Pansear into Simisear. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Pansear was an average basic Pokemon card. With that being said, you may have Pansear in the active Pokemon spot already when you get Simisear into your hand, whenever you get Simisear into the active Pokemon spot you're going to want to make sure to only attach fire energy cards to it so at a minimum Fire Blast would do 100 damage per turn. So when Simisear is your active Pokemon use whichever move you have the right amount of energy for. I would even suggest if you evolve Pansear into Simisear on your bench and don't put it into the active Pokemon spot right away that you put 4 or 5 fire energy cards on this card so that it can do even more damage when using Flame Blast. Because Pansear is a little slower to attack, I would only use a 2-2 line of this Pokemon family in a mostly fire type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very good stage 1 Pokemon card and would definitely be a good addition to your fire type deck. I like both of Simisear's moves, both can do a good amount of damage for the amount of energy cards required. The only thing I wish should be better on this card is its hp, but it is average for a stage 1 Pokemon card so I can't complain too much. Overall, I would give the line of Pansear and Simisear from the Plasma Storm set a 4 out of 5 rating.
