Pokémon Advanced Challenge Trading Cards
Pokémon Advanced Challenge Trading Cards was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps. There were 90 cards in the set, including a checklist. In addition, there were several chase cards not featured on the checklist, including embossed evolution cards and pop-up cards.
Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets of seven. One card in each packet, chosen at random, would be a foil card. The foil card could be any of the 89 regular cards.
Cards in the Pokémon Advanced Challenge series
Like the Pokémon Advanced Trading Cards series, Pokémon cards are ordered not by Pokédex order but in alphabetical order. All Pokémon appearing in this set were introduced before and in Generation III.
- Castform (fire)
- Castform (ice)
- Castform (water)
Embossed evolution cards
There are 18 embossed evolution cards in the set, representing six three-stage evolutionary lines. Each evolution card is die-cut in a way that when the three stages of the evolutionary line are placed together, the shapes of the cards will fit together. Additionally, the image of the Pokémon and the Pokémon logo are embossed.
There are 10 pop-up cards in the set. Each pop-up card has an image of a Pokémon which can be punched out and then propped up using the rest of the card for support.
