Pokémon Stadium 2

released on Dec 14, 2000

While Pokémon Stadium 2 does have a storyline, progress in the game can be made by winning Cups in the Stadium and completing the Gym Leader Castle. When all Cups have been won and the Gym Leader Castle completed, the player's Rival will appear. Defeating the Rival will unlock Round 2, in which the player must re-challenge the Stadium, Gym Leader Castle, and the Rival in order to complete the game. But, they have different Pokémon and the difficulty is much higher.

Stadium:
The player begins by choosing 6 different Pokémon. There are 250 different Pokémon to choose from; including some legendary Pokémon. Pokémon tournaments take place in the Stadium. There are four Cups to participate in. Each round consists of eight battles, and every Cup except the Little and Prime Cup consists of four rounds, named after Poké Balls, that must be cleared to win that Cup.

Pretty fun, played it kinda recently actually but yeah idk the mini games really are the only reason to go back tbh


Me on holydays as kid:

Pokémon Stadium 2 + Transfer Pack + Pokémon Crystal = See you when dinosaurs come back to earth.


I loved this. But I do think without the Gameboy adapter it is mediocre at best. Rental pokemon just isn't the same.


If you had the N64 GBA adapter this game is 5/5, it was like taking your team to the higher leagues, to beat the Pokemon Stadium, there was a lot of mysticism around it at the time and it was glorious.

If you did't have the adapter it's a 3/5, you just picked the most op pokemons possible to beat it and that's it. Some of the minigames were also very fun, so there was that.


What's true of the first game is still true here, the only thing that's good in this game are the handful of minigames. The main difference here is that Gold/Silver pokemon were added. It still misses the point of a Pokemon game nearly entirely with no catching, no training, no traveling, just pointless battles. I guess the point was to see pokemon fight in 3D, that is no longer a novelty. The minigames were okay!
