What are Psychic Energy Cards?

Psychic Energy Cards are one of the nine Basic Energy Cards that are used in the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG). They were introduced when the game was launched in Japan in 1996 and have been a feature of the TCG ever since.

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

Psychic Energy Cards Symbol

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

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

Unown V Silver Tempest

The Unown V card from Silver Tempest has two Attacks. To use Shady Stamp the player must attach one Psychic Energy. To use Victory Symbol, three Colorless Energy are required.

 

Timeline of Psychic Energy Cards:

To date there have been 18 different designs of Psychic 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.
