Release information

This card originated in the Fossil expansion with artwork by Keiji Kinebuchi. It was later included in the Expedition Base Set, originating in the Pokémon-e Starter Deck, with new artwork by Kai Ishikawa and an updated effect. This print was used throughout the EX Series, and the first part of the Diamond & Pearl Series, up until the release of Majestic Dawn. The Majestic Dawn print, originating in the Magmortar vs Electivire Deck Kit, featured new artwork by Ryo Ueda. Energy Search was later included as an Item card in the Black & White expansion with new artwork by Ryo Ueda, originating from the Battle Strength Decks. It was reprinted again in the Boundaries Crossed expansion in English, and in the Battle Gift Set: Thundurus vs Tornadus and the Keldeo Battle Strength Deck in Japanese.

Even though the Expedition Base Set print reworded the card text slightly by adding a new clause, no reference is required when using the Fossil print of the card.
