Basic Energy GrassJapan’s next set of Gym tournaments will give out one of nine classic Energy promos to participating players. The Energy will use their original designs. This means we’ll see Grass, Fire, Water, Lightning, Psychic, Fighting, Metal, Darkness, and likely Double Colorless Energy (though they could make a retro Fairy Energy if they wanted!).

The classic Energy designs will likely be included in Evolutions, our November Base Set reprint set.
