Pokémon Stadium gives trainers an arena to engage in heated Pokémon battles, and offers them a ring-side seat for the action. Tons of features, including support for playing your Game Boy Pokémon game through your N64, make Stadium a must-have for all Pokémon fans!
The American version of Pokémon Stadium is actually based on the second Japanese edition of Pokémon Stadium. Pokémon Trainers are able to conduct turn-based battles similar to the Game Boy versions of Pokémon, but outrageous animation sequences and flashy special attack effects will make your Pokémon come to life like never before.
One of the most exciting aspects of Pokémon Stadium is that you're able to battle using your most loyal Pokémon from the Red, Blue and Yellow versions of Pokémon (sold separately). Thanks to a Transfer Pak that comes with the Pokémon Stadium Game Pak and plugs into the bottom of your Controller, data can be transferred straight from a Game Boy cartridge to your N64.
The Technical Machines, attacks and levels of your trained Pokémon are available on Pokémon Stadium, so you won't have to leave any of your favorites behind. You'll want your specially trained Pokémon to battle Stadium's toughest rivals.
On top of the visual treat of watching your Pokémon duke it out on the big screen, Pokémon Stadium also contains a variety of minigames starring all types of Pokémon. Rambunctious Lickitungs slurp up platefuls of lunch in Sushi-Go-Round. Watch out for the red-hot entree!
150 Pokémon can be used, or "rented," in Pokémon Stadium, even if you decide not to transfer data from your Game Boy Pokémon games. (Mewtwo is never available as a Rental Pokémon, but you can upload Mewtwo from your Pokémon Game Pak.) Pokémon Stadium will allow up to four players to compete in a grueling Pokémon tournament, designed to reveal which of your friends is the best Pokémon Trainer.
