Pokémon Trading Cards series 2 was a set of Pokémon-themed trading cards manufactured by Topps in 2000. There were 71 cards in total: 40 Pokémon cards, five "Heroes & Villains" cards, 25 episode cards, and a checklist card. In addition, there were several die-cut embossed cards, animation stick-on cards, and clear cards, however, these were secret "chase cards" and are not included on the checklist.

Cards were sold in randomly distributed packets of five. One card in each packet, chosen at random, would be a foil card. The foil card could be any of the 70 regular cards.

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). On the back of each card is one of nine pieces to a puzzle, except for the Rattata card, which shows a small version of the completed puzzle picture.

Clear cards

There were five "clear cards" included in this set. The clear cards feature a double-sided picture of a Pokémon on the front and back, the back image is the image on the front but in reverse. The rest of the card is transparent.

  1. PC1 Pikachu
  2. PC2 Bulbasaur
  3. PC3 Charizard
  4. PC4 Squirtle
  5. PC5 Mewtwo

Die-cut embossed cards

Twelve of the Pokémon cards 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.
