‘Battle Styles’ Ban List Released, Includes Minor Changes to Energy Recycler

Pokemon.com has released its quarterly ban list for Battle Styles. While no changes have been made to the Standard or Expanded formats, a rule change has been announced for all previous prints of Energy Recycler so they match the Battle Styles print.

All previous versions of Energy Recycler (XY—Ancient Origins, 72/98Sun & Moon—Guardians Rising123/145; and Sun & Moon—Forbidden Light143/131) will receive errata to be updated with the following card text:

Shuffle up to 5 basic Energy cards from your discard pile into your deck.

The latest version of Energy Recycler from Sword & Shield—Battle Styles has different text than older versions. Previous versions forced the player to shuffle 5 basic Energy cards into their deck if there were at least 5 in the discard pile, but the new text allows the player to choose up to 5 instead. (As a reminder, that means any number from 1 to 5.)
