Trivia

  • This was the first Holofoil Energy card and the first Special Energy card to be reprinted in a Japanese expansion.
  • Rainbow Energy had its own Energy symbol, Any, prior to the HeartGold & SoulSilver print. This was changed to a Colorless symbol congruous to the print's updated effect.
