Trash Energy Special Energy Card Trash Energy provides 2:metal: Energy. In addition, when Trash Energy is attached to a :metal: pokemon, reduce all damage done to the pokemon by the defending pokemon by 20. Trash Energy may not be attached from your hand. Awesome metal energy, but you have to attached it from the deck or discard pile. Many of the effects that attach energy from Deck/Discard specify "Basic" energy, making this not an easy card to use.
