From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Pokémon Trading Cards series 3 was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps in 2000. There were 72 cards in total: 34 Pokémon cards, 12 "Heroes & Villains" cards, 19 episode cards, 6 puzzle 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 evolution cards, 10 pop-up cards, and 5 clear cards.
Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets of five or eight. One card in each packet would be a randomly chosen foil card.

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.
