its possible to drink to much water
when you drink too much (im not sure how much is too much) the water flushes your electrolytes along with bad chemicals, which means you will have reduced energy. thats why they say powerade gives you energy, because theres lots of electrolytes

hyponatremia is a serious issue if you drink too much water, yes.

However, reduced eletrolytes doesnt mean less energy. After they get outside a certain range your nervous system has problems conducting and your brain swells up and you die.

Also, powerade is terrible
