Double Colorless Energy (Japanese: 無色2個エネルギー Double Colorless Energy) was the first-released Special Energy card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, and as such, is one of the most well-known, especially by older players. It was, until the Team Rocket expansion, the only Energy card that one could only have four of in a deck, however, despite this, it found a great many uses across all kinds of deck archetypes.

Release information

Double Colorless Energy was first released in the Base Set with art by Keiji Kinebuchi, which survived to its first reprint in Base Set 2. The card was re-released in the HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion with new artwork by Kent Kanetsuna and a reworded effect. It was later reprinted in the Next Destinies expansion with new artwork by 5ban Graphics. This print was then included in the Reshiram EX and Zekrom EX Battle Strength Decks, as well as the Master Deck Build Box EX.

Trivia

  • Double Colorless Energy was the only Energy card capable of providing more than one unit of Energy until the release of Miracle Energy in the Neo Destiny expansion. It was the only Energy card capable of providing more than one unit of Energy that could be attached to any Pokémon, however, until the release of Bounce Energy in the Skyridge expansion, which essentially was a version of this card with a drawback. Now, several cards, including Upper Energy, Scramble Energy, and Boost Energy are able to provide multiple Energy units when attached.
  • This was the first special Energy card to be reprinted, though only in the English-only Base Set 2. The first Japanese reprint would be Rainbow Energy.

Origin

  • Double Colorless Energy was likely created in order to represent all seven (at the time) of the TCG types with an Energy card.
