rule = x^_?AtomQ -> newform;

x^y /. rule

newform

x^(y + z) /. rule

x^(y + z)

x^(y*z) /. rule

x^(y*z)

=============
I'm new to pattern matching, and am stuck on a seemingly simple probem:

If I want to transform a pattern like

(I)  Power[x,_]   i.e. x^_

but NOT

(II) Power[x,Plus[_,_]]   i.e. x^(_+_)

How would I go about making that rule?

x^_ -> NewForm

Applies the rule to (II), which I don't want.

Thank you for your help :)
