A packet of cards featuring Mewtwo

Pokémon the First Movie Trading Cards was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps in 1999. There were 72 cards in total: 41 cards featuring scenes from Mewtwo Strikes Back, 18 cards featuring scenes from Pikachu's Vacation, 12 evolution cards, and a checklist. In addition, there were 12 die-cut embossed evolution cards and at least 18 sticker cards, however, these were secret "chase cards" and are not included on the checklist.

Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets of five. One card in each packet, chosen at random, would be a foil card. The foil card could be any of the 71 regular cards.

Sticker cards

There are at least 18 sticker cards in this set. On the front of the sticker card is a starry pattern with a removable Pokémon sticker on it and the back of each card contains one out of nine pieces to a puzzle forming an image from the movie.


A card mentioning "Pikablu" and "Buru"
  • The cards from Pikachu's Vacation name Marill as "Pikablu" and Snubbull as "Buru". This contradicts later promotional items for the movie, such as the short's novelization, which use the final English names for these Pokémon. The names were later corrected in the 'Topps Black Edition', but spelt Snubbull as "Snubble".
    • "Buru" can be considered a transliteration of Snubbull's Japanese name, ブルー Bull.
