Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simipour from the Pokemon XY Card Set. Simipour is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Simipour does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Recycle, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to put a card from your discard pile onto the top of your deck. Simipour's second move is called Surf and for three energy cards, two water and one colorless, this move does 70 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Simipour is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Panpour into play (I reviewed Panpour from this set yesterday) and then evolve Panpour into Simipour. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Panpour was an average Pokemon that could be used on its own in a deck but I wouldn't recommend using it in that way. I would instead use that card with this card in a water type deck, I would recommend using a 2-2 or 1-1 line and whenever you get three energy cards on Panpour evolve it into Simipour so you can use Surf every turn. Recycle would really only be useful if you have a Pokemon that has a move that discards energy cards, that way you could retrieve those cards from the deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card from the X and Y set. I do like that Surf does above average damage, but everything else on this card is average, hp, retreat cost, weakness, and its first move Recycle. Overall, the line of Panpour and Simipour from this set is average and would work pretty decently in any type deck out there.
