Pokémon Advanced Trading Cards was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps in 2003. There were 90 cards in total: 8 character cards, 81 Pokémon cards, and a checklist card. Each of these 90 cards also had a foil card version. In addition, there were 28 bonus "chase cards" not included on the checklist: 18 embossed evolution cards and 10 pop-up cards.

Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets of seven. One card in each packet would be a randomly chosen foil card.
