Release information

This card was released in the Base Set, originating from the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was included in the Trainer Deck B, which was given to prototype Pokémon Leagues before the Base Set's market release. All cards in this deck have a red border and "Trainer Deck B" printed on the back. It was reprinted in the Base Set 2 reprint set, which was only released outside of Japan.


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.
