How to Play Pokemon Trading Card Game : Types of Energy in Pokemon TCG


Let’s talk about Pokemon types of energy.
Now I have heard a lot of you going types of energy, what the heck are types of energy
and what does it have to do with the game? Basically just like we eat or drink a Pokemon
uses energy to fuel its body to use its attacks to walk to do whatever Pokemon does so when
you use Pokemon in a game you need to have energy to give it to fuel its attacks. There
are all different kinds of Pokemon and each Pokemon feeds on different kinds of energy.
Sometimes one, sometimes two, maybe even three but usually it is just one or two. There are
six basic types of energy, water energy, electric energy, leaf energy or Earth energy as it
is sometimes called, fire energy, fighting energy and psychic energy. With the introduction
of Diamond and Pearl or a little bit farther back than that but right now basic energies
are including metal energy an dark energy. Also last but not least is colorless energy.
Let’s talk about how you tell what kind of energy a Pokemon uses. The easiest way is
to look at the card. If you look up in the corner here it is going to have a little circle
with the kind of energy that the Pokemon uses, the energy the Pokemon uses the most and sometimes
it changes a little bit when you look down here for the attacks but this is the one that
tells you what the type of energy you need to put in your deck is. Right now I am holding
an electric type Pokemon and that is this little Pokemon guy here, he is an electric
Pokemon and you will need electric energy.
