Simipour -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Simipour Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Simipour from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Simipour is a Stage 1, Water type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move on this card is called Scratch, for one Colorless Energy card this move does 30 damage.  Aqua Reflect is this card's second move, for two Energy cards, one each of Water and Colorless, this move does 50 damage, however, you must move a Water Energy card from Simipour to one of your Benched Pokemon after using the move.

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 it was a below average card overall and a card that I wouldn't use on its own.  The card did have an above average HP, but it was very limited in having only one move that could only do 10 damage, it is the kind of card that would work in the Active Pokemon spot to start the game, but should be evolved as soon as possible.  So knowing this about Panpour and looking at this Simipour card, I like how both moves on this card are quick to use and both can do a fair amount of damage, I don't think either move is good enough to warrant trying to fit this line into a deck, especially since you have to move a Water Energy when using Aqua Reflect.  So overall, I would not recommend using this line in a Water type deck, these two Pokemon combined are too limited in what they can do, and can't do enough damage when attacking.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Burning Shadows set.  Like I mentioned above, this card does have a solid HP and two moves, both requiring little Energy.  But overall, this card just isn't that good and can't do enough damage when attacking, combine that with a below average Panpour card, and this is a below average line overall, I would give it a 2 out of 5 rating, look elsewhere when building a Water type deck.
