Simisear -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Simisear Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simisear from the Pokemon XY 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 one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Simisear does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Yawn, for one colorless energy card this move puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.  Simisear's second move is called Flamethrower, and for three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, this move does 90 damage, however you must discard a fire energy card attached to Simisear after using the Flamethrower move.

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 a below average basic Pokemon card that probably shouldn't be used in a deck without this Simisear card.  So strategy wise, you'll want to evolve Pansear into Simisear as early as you can on the bench, then you can either move Simisear into the active Pokemon spot and put the defending Pokemon to sleep to allow you to set up your benched Pokemon, or you can keep Simisear on the bench and put three energy cards, or more, on it to be able to use Flamethrower when it is in the active Pokemon spot.  If you choose to use Simisear in your deck, don't use more than 1 each of Pansear and Simisear, I would recommend putting at least 4 energy cards on Simisear if you use it so you can use Flamethrower multiple turns in a row.  I personally wouldn't use this line in a deck, both Pokemon are a little slower and both discard energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is slightly below average stage 1 Pokemon card.  I do like that Simisear has 90 hp, a low retreat cost, and two moves.  But nothing really stands out on this card and even though Flamethrower does above average damage, it really don't do that much for me since you have to discard an energy card each time you use it.  Overall, this Pokemon family is below average and get a 2 out of 5 from me, the same rating both received individually.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Simisear from the X and Y set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Fennekin, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
