Basic Energy cards (Japanese: '''基本エネルギー''' ''Basic Energy'') are defined as nine Energy cards that share their printed type with a Pokémon. They are the only cards that players are allowed to have more than four of in their decks, aside from {{TCG|Arceus}}. Basic Energy cards always provide one of their printed type of Energy or one {{TCG|Colorless}} Energy. There is no basic Energy card that provides only a single Colorless Energy, as it would be entirely outclassed by any of the other types.

Energy cards (Japanese: エネルギー Energy) are the cards that power Pokémon attacks in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Without the required Energy cards attached, a Pokémon cannot use these attacks. Energy cards come in Basic and Special forms.

Basic Energy cards

Basic Energy cards (基本エネルギー Kihon'Enerugī) are defined as nine Energy cards that share their printed type with a Pokémon. They are the only cards that players are allowed to have more than four of in their decks, aside from Arceus. Basic Energy cards always provide one of their printed type of Energy or one Colorless Energy (()(しょく)エネルギー Mushoku Enerugī). There is no basic Energy card that provides only a single Colorless Energy, as it would be entirely outclassed by any of the other types.

Name Provides
Fighting Energy ((とう)エネルギー Tō Enerugī) Fighting or Colorless
Fire Energy ((ほのお)エネルギー Honō Enerugī "Flame Energy") Fire or Colorless
Grass Energy ((くさ)エネルギー Kusa Enerugī) Grass or Colorless
Lightning Energy ((かみなり)エネルギー Kaminari Enerugī "Thunder Energy") Lightning or Colorless
Psychic Energy ((ちょう)エネルギー Chō Enerugī "Super Energy"[1]) Psychic or Colorless
Water Energy ((みず)エネルギー Mizu Enerugī) Water or Colorless
Darkness Energy ((あく)エネルギー Aku Enerugī "Evil Energy") Darkness or Colorless
Metal Energy ((はがね)エネルギー Hagane Enerugī "Steel Energy") Metal or Colorless
Fairy Energy (フェアリーエネルギー Fearīenerugī) Fairy or Colorless


Special Energy cards

Special Energy cards (Japanese: 特殊エネルギー Special Energy) are cards that provide more than one Energy of a specific type and/or have an additional effect besides providing Energy. Some may heal the Pokémon they're attached to, add damage to their attacks, or may even provide several different types of Energy at once. A majority of them provide only Colorless Energy; however, there are several which provide one or more of any type of Basic Energy.

For a full list of these, please see List of Special Energy cards.
