Colorless Energy Cards – Info & Images


What are Colorless Energy Cards?

Basic Colorless Energy Cards do not exist. Rather, there are nine different Basic Energy Cards that are used in the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) and any one of those can be used where a Colorless Energy card is required. 

Normal, Flying and Dragon type Pokémon do not have designated Energy Cards. Moves and attacks for these Pokémon will require a number of Colorless Energy.
