What are Fire Energy Cards?

Although there have been many design changes over the years, Fire Energy Cards are always predominantly red and always feature the Fire symbol of a black flame on a red circle. (Scroll to bottom for timeline and gallery of all designs to date).

Fire Energy Cards Symbol

Fire Energy only corresponds to Fire type Pokémon and their cards always include the Fire Energy symbol in the top right hand corner. In order to use an Attack Move of a Fire type Pokémon, the player will need to attach the specified number of Fire and/or Colorless Energy Cards. The numbers required are indicated by the symbols to the left of the Attack Move.

A Fire Energy Card can also be used when the Colorless Energy symbol appears because Colorless Energy can be any type of Energy.

Charizard VSTAR

The Charizard VSTAR card from Brilliant Stars has two Attacks. To use Explosive Fire the player must attach two Fire Energy and one Colorless Energy. To use the Star Blaze Attack, three Fire Energy and one Colorless Energy are required.

 

Timeline of Fire Energy Cards:

To date there have been 18 different designs of Fire Energy Cards. Energy Cards were given numbers up to the release of the Sun and Moon series in 2017. The only Basic Energy cards to be given numbers from 2017 onwards are those that are released as Secret Rares.
