Is there any basic pokemon in the current format that let you discard an energy?
What exactly do you mean by discard because if you mean from your opponents pokemon theres the new SW Natu.
I do believe I'm allowed to mention Pokepedia.net in threads like these.
You are capable of using it to search for all pokemon in the Modified Format

You are capable of using it to search for all words "Discard energy card"
Now, this is not the best way to search, as it'll pull up such pokemon as Chimchar (as it does meet all of these requirements). It's not even complete, as there's no Secret Wonders in the database yet. However, it DOES give you a decent list if you scan through it.
I see Carnivine. I see Vaporeon *.
None of the others are really even remotely close to being playable (IE: Rayquaza EX is colorless weak and needs 3 energy to do this attack).
Try expanding your search a bit to include SW (Natu's a good example. Lugia almost discards an energy. I can't think of any more examples off top of head) and stage 1s, and watch that list grow. 'Bout all the advice I can give, sorry.
Separate names with a comma.
