I have these Grass type energy cards in my collection, they're from 2017, fairly new. But I have no idea why they're numbered. I can't even remember where I got them from. The numbers are on each card in a white and blue circle, not quite at the bottom, right corner.

enter image description here

  • I guess what I mean to ask is, what are the numbers for? What do they mean?

    I have a wild suspicion that they may come from some kind of demonstration deck - the numbers help put the deck into a fixed order so that the demo always goes the same way.

These are from Sun & Moon Trainer Kit: Alolan Sandslash & Alolan Ninetales, the first instance of Trainer Kit that uses those circled numbers instead of the previous approach of using set number for purpose of sorting the two half decks for a demonstration game.
