A packet of cards featuring Jessie and James

Pokémon Trading Cards series 2 was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps in 2000. There were 72 cards in total: 41 Pokémon cards, 5 "Heroes & Villains" cards, 25 episode cards, and a checklist card. Each of these 72 cards also had two foil card versions (silver and rainbow). In addition, there were 27 bonus "chase cards" not included on the checklist, including 12 die-cut embossed cards, 10 animation stick-on cards, and 5 clear cards.

Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets of five or eight[1]. One card in each packet would be a randomly chosen foil card.

Die-cut embossed cards

Twelve Pokémon cards from the previous series 1 were also available as a secret die-cut version. The die-cut version was almost the same as the normal version, except the edges of the card are cut in unique ways and parts of the print on the front of the card would be embossed.

The twelve die-cut cards in series 2 are:

Animation stick-on cards

The Charmander animation stick-on card

Ten "animation stick-on" cards were included in the set. Each card appears as a normal card, but the picture of the Pokémon can be peeled off and is actually a sticker (with a clear background).
