    Sad News About Neo Genesis Recycle Energy

    [​IMG]
    We have very sad news to report about the old Recycle Energy from the Neo Genesis set.

    We have received word from Pokemon R&D that since there is significant differences in the text compared to the new card in Unified Minds, old copies of the card (Including the foil promo version) will not be legal to play.
    Our condolences.
    A service will be held at Worlds.​

    "This card provides Colorless Energy.

    If this card is discarded from play, put it into your hand instead of the discard pile."

    Yes i can see the significant differences. :rolleyes:

    Well, the difference is that the old one goes to the discard pile and then to your hand.
    The new one goes straight to your hand.
    This makes a difference in interactions with effects such as Scoop Up Block.
    One would get returned, the other wouldn't.

    Errata would've worked fine. But i guess i'll keep my pile of Genesis Recycle Energy nice and minty.

    Has anyone double-checked the Japanese text on both versions?

    I am ok with this. Retro does pretty well maintaining the value of the cards in its formats on its own.
