Pika Cup (Japanese: イエローカップ Yellow Cup) is the lowest-level Stadium Cup in Pokémon Stadium which did not return in Pokémon Stadium 2.

It is a cup for low leveled Pokémon, specifically those from Level 15 to Level 20. The sum of the levels of the three Pokémon chosen cannot be more than 50. Technically, all Pokémon except for Mewtwo and Mew are eligible to enter. However, getting strong Pokémon at that low of a level can get quite complicated. While some are catchable at low levels in certain versions (e.g. Level 15 Dragonair in Yellow Version), others are more complex and involve trading across the in-game trainers and the different versions. Interestingly, as many of these involve the Yellow version, its naming after that game's version mascot, Pikachu may have had more than one point to it.

Available via tradebacks from Generation II

Many Pokémon from Generation I that previous appeared exclusively at level 21 or higher can be obtained at low levels in Generation II and then traded to a Generation I game to be used in the Pika Cup. Also, the inclusion of Generation II tradebacks lowers the "Lowest Level Usable" for some Pokémon. The following list shows every Pokémon not previously available or with a lower minimum level:
