Energy Removal (Japanese: エネルギー・リムーブEnergy Remove) is a Trainer card. It was first released as part of the Base Set.
You can't have more than 1 ACE SPEC card in your deck.
You can't have more than 1 Prism Star card with the same name in your deck. If a Prism Star card is discarded, put it in the Lost Zone.
Choose 1 Energy card attached to 1 of your opponent's Pokémon and discard it.
At the beginning of your turn, flip a coin. If heads, you can do nothing during your turn. If tails, your opponent can do nothing during his or her next turn.
A prototype Pokémon Leagues were given the Trainer Deck B, which included this card, before the Base Set's official release. This print has a red border and "Trainer Deck B" printed on the back. This card was included in the Base Set, first released in the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was reprinted in the Base Set 2 expansion.
Like its even more powerful counterpart, Super Energy Removal, Energy Removal was deemed far too powerful and replaced with Energy Removal 2, which requires coin flips for the same effect.
