Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simisage from the Pokemon XY 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, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Simisage does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Torment, for one colorless energy card this move does 20 damage and you get to choose one of your opponent's active Pokemon's attacks and disable it for their next turn. Simisage's second move is called Solar Beam, this move requires three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, and does 70 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Simisage is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pansage into play (I reviewed Pansage from this set yesterday) and then evolve Pansage into Simisage. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Pansage was an excellent basic grass type Pokemon card to use as a starter type Pokemon in grass type decks. So knowing that about Pansage and looking at this Simisage card, I would highly recommend using this entire Pokemon family in a grass type deck, this line won't be the line you build the deck around but it will definitely make a contribution. So I would use a 4-2 line of Pansage and Simisage in a deck, I would move Pansage into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, then set the other ones up on the bench and evolve them into Simisage on the bench. Whenever you do get Simisage into the active Pokemon spot, use whichever move you have the required energy for. To me, Torment is a very interesting move and I think it could really annoy your opponent, but any time you can knock out the defending Pokemon with 70 damage, use Solar Beam over Torment.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set. There really isn't anything that I don't like about this card, it has a low retreat cost, and two good, but not great moves. Combined with Pansage from this set, I'm giving this Pokemon family a 5 out of 5 rating, it is very good. Individually Pansage was a 5 and Simisage a 4. This line should definitely be in a lot of grass type decks out there.
