A packet of Pokémon series 1 trading cards

Pokémon Official Trading Cards, informally known as Pokémon Trading Cards series 1, was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps in 1999. There were 90 cards in total: 76 Pokémon cards, 13 character cards, and a checklist card. Although no "chase cards" are included in this set, there are some foil cards, rarer than others, which may have a bumpy texture.

Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets of eight. One card in each packet, chosen at random, would be a foil card. The foil card could be any of the 89 regular cards.

There are thirteen cards featuring characters from the Pokémon anime. The first four cards have a Pokédex-style entry on the featured character, the other nine have pieces of a puzzle on the back. The image on the puzzle is also featured on the front of the checklist card.
