Pokémon Trading Cards series 3 was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps in 2000. There were 64 cards in total: 33 Pokémon cards, 11 "Heroes & Villains" cards, 19 episode cards and a checklist card. In addition, series 3 contains the most chase cards out of any Topps Pokémon trading card series: six puzzle cards, ten pop-up cards, five clear cards, and 12 die-cut embossed evolution cards.
Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets. One card in each packet, chosen at random, would be a foil card. The foil card could be any of the 63 regular cards.

Heroes & Villains
These cards are a continuation of the Heroes & Villains cards introduced in series 2. As of such, they are numbered beginning with #6 to form a continuous set.
Much like the episode cards in series 2, there are nineteen episode cards in series 3. The series 3 cards, rather than continuing from where the series 2 cards stopped, instead feature episodes from Orange Islands episodes.
