Simipour -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Simipour BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simipour from the BREAKthrough Pokemon 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 Green Fling, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to put three grass energy cards from your discard pile into your hand.  Simipour's second move is called Hand Fling, for two colorless energy cards this move does 10 damage times the number of cards in your hand.

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 of Panpour, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card, it had a good HP, low retreat cost, and could potentially do above average damage every turn, but the main reason I didn't like that card was because its only move was based on a coin flip which means it may end up doing zero damage every single turn.  So knowing this about Panpour and looking at Simipour, the first thing you'll notice is that Simipour would do best in a grass type deck since you can then utilize Green Fling and move energy cards from your discard pile to your hand.  Hand Fling is a decent move but one that would work better if you first use Green Fling to get more cards into your hand.  I would also make sure to include plenty of Trainer cards in your deck that gets cards into your hand.  So I could see using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family if you're building a grass type deck since this line doesn't need to be used with a water type deck since both Panpour and Simipour require only colorless energy cards to attack.

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, it has an average HP, low retreat cost, and two solid moves, boosted if in a grass type deck.  Overall, like I said above, if you're building a grass type deck, this card should be a staple.  I would give Panpour and Simipour combined a 3 out of 5 rating.
