In the Pokémon TCG, a player can only use an Attack Move if the specified number of Energy are attached. This specified number generally includes one or more Energy that corresponds to the Pokémon type, and / or a number of Colorless Energy. Counter Energy Cards provide one Colorless Energy or two of any Energy if certain conditions are met.
