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. Crystal Energy Cards provide one Colorless Energy or one of any Energy attached to that Pokémon.
