is that like a card or something?
TCG=Trading Card Game, referring to the Pokemon Trading Card Game.
Alright, I'm still waiting for an answer :/
The one I just asked is gonna be there for maybe this long....
this question has been here for a LONG time!
I have searched the Pokemon website and I found not trainer, Pokemon, or energy card that could yield a clue for a core. My best guess that a core in the TCG  is either is similar to in the actual games/showdown or simply nonexistent in the realm of Pokemon TCG. I could have missed some card that indicates what your looking for, but is unlikely.

Oh, Cores are the thing that decks are based around. They are usually 1/2 Pokemon that work together well in a deck that really keep it flowing.
For example, In Reshiboar, the cores would be Reshiram and (ability) Emboar.
In Klingklang/Coballion it's, well, Klingklang and Coballion.
Darkrai or Mewtwo decks consist of Darkrai EX and Mewtwo EX.
Eels are Eelektross.
ETC

So yeah, pretty close to the video game. You build a deck around a strategy, and the Pokemon that carry out that strategy, and then construct the deck to better that strategy and make it flow correctly.

Of course you knew this while nobody else did. +1
THANK YOU SO MUCH RIO!
Upon further review and with the aid of Rio's answer, I was incorrect. That does not mean that a more correct and direct answer will come.
Lol, I wish this was on here so I could've answered it earlier. xD Sorry 'bout dat.
