    A Leaguer got upset with me when I mentioned she couldn't get Splash Energy with Aqua Patch.

    But I couldn't find a ruling so I figured i'd ask.

    Her view is Splash Energy does not have the "provides {colorless} energy when not in play" so she can Aqua Patch it.

    I told her the card "only provides Water Energy only while this card is attached to a Water Pokémon."

    But there's nothing like an official ruling

    Well, it doesn't provide colorless energy while not in play.
    It provides no energy.
    It also doesn't count as a colorless energy card.
    But, the thing that does matter, and that addresses her question, is that it states, "This card provides {W} Energy only while this card is attached to a {W} Pokémon.
    So that means that at all other times, including while in the deck or in the discard, it is not providing {W} energy and therefore can't be "seen" by Aqua Patch.
