How to Attach Energy to a Pokemon in the Trading Card Game

Learn how to attach energy to a Pokemon from the Pokemon Trading Card Game pros at Comic Cafe in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Joe D'Andrea, a Pokemon professor at Comic Cafe in Warren New Jersey, and we're here to show you how to play the Pokemon trading card game.

On your turn, you may want to do one of several things before you attack, and one of these is attaching energy. You may attach one energy card per turn to a Pokemon, although there may be other cards like trainer cards that let you do more energy attachments than normal. To attach, take your energy card and tuck it underneath the Pokemon it's being attached to. It should peek out at the top. In fact, all of your energy cards should be visible to the other player. You may only attach energy to a Pokemon once per turn. Sometimes there are other ways to get energy onto your Pokemon besides attaching, even though you can only attach once, you may play other cards that will let you attach more energy.
