Pokémon Colosseum (Japanese: ポケモンコロシアム Pokémon Colosseum) was released on the Nintendo GameCube on November 21, 2003, in Japan; March 22, 2004, in North America; and May 14, 2004, in Europe. The game followed the basic stadium style battling found in the Pokémon Stadium games, but extra gameplay was included in the form of an RPG which allowed Trainers to catch Generation II and Generation III Pokémon in the desolate region of Orre.

In the game, the player character Wes was formerly a member of an organization called Team Snagem, which had obtained a machine that allowed the user to "snag" another Trainer's Pokémon as though it were wild. Another team, Cipher, was responsible for corrupting the hearts of Pokémon and giving them to Trainers. With the help of a young girl named Rui, Wes was able to find the Pokémon whose hearts were sealed and surrounded by a purple aura and use the Snag Machine to rescue Shadow Pokémon and restore them to normal.

Plot

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

The game starts with an opening scene depicting the player stealing some sort of equipment from the strongly guarded headquarters of Team Snagem, and then proceeding to flee with an Espeon and Umbreon as the base explodes. After riding on a strange one-wheeled motorcycle for a while, the player stops at the dilapidated gas station of Outskirt Stand. The player battles Rider Willie, who tells the player about Phenac City after he is defeated.

Upon reaching the new location, a pair of shady people are just leaving the city with a noisy, wriggling sack in tow. Once they see that they've been caught, one of the goons, Folly, starts a battle with the player. After defeat, both people get away, leaving the sack unattended. A girl emerges from the bag after some trouble undoing the knot, and claim to have seen the kidnappers use some kind of strange looking Pokémon. The girl becomes the player's partner and both go to find the Mayor to clear things up. A strange man bumps into the player as he leaves the Mayor's office, predicting that he will see the player again sometime in the future. The player and partner then enter the house as the girl proceeds to alert the Mayor of weird Pokémon that have a dark aura and attack humans. The Mayor assures the team that he will look into this case, and suggests going to the city's Stadium. At the doorway of the Stadium, some Snagem members recognize the player as the traitor who blew up their base. A battle with one of them ensues, and upon defeat, the girl tells the player that she doesn't care about the past, but she does encourage buying some Poké Balls for future use. After this scene, the girl becomes the player's permanent partner, and will follow the player throughout the length of the game.

Then, after purchasing some Poké Balls at Outskirt Stand, the player returns to Phenac City, only to find it taken over by some thugs. The player tries to rescue the Mayor, but finding the decked-out Miror B. and his mischievous friends in his wake. The player's partner identifies the first Shadow Pokémon available for capture after entering a battle with Miror B.'s underlings, Folly and Trudly. After beating both in a battle, and/or capturing the Shadow Pokémon, the player tries to leave the city for Pyrite Town, but is waylaid by brightly clad goons at each exit. Each has a Shadow Pokémon, but defeat of one will cue the others to leave.

From this point, the player and partner will journey all across the Orre region, battling Trainers, snagging Shadow Pokémon, and uncovering the disastrous plan of the secret organization, Cipher. This shady group and its ambitious admins are the creators of Shadow Pokémon, closing their hearts to strengthen their stats. The player eventually learns how to reverse the effects of this process, and must capture all of Cipher's Shadow Pokémon to thwart the evil mastermind behind it all. After defeating Miror B in Pyrite Cave, Dakim in Mt. Battle, Venus in The Under and Ein in the Shadow Pokémon Lab, the player goes to Realgam Tower; after defeating the Admins again, Gonzap comes out and reveals that Cipher gave Team Snagem the Snag Machines; and that Snagem gave the Pokémon to Cipher, who created Shadow Pokémon; meaning that this was all one master plan hatched by Cipher. After defeating Snagem, Nascour—the boss of Cipher—is defeated by the player. Afterwards, it is revealed that Phenac City's mayor Es Cade is actually Evice, the true boss of Cipher. After he is defeated he tries to escape; however, fortunately, a Ho-Oh uses Sacred Fire to stop him, saving the day.

Even with the true leader under arrest, there is still a post-ending to be completed. Secc, from the Kids Grid, emails the player information about some interesting characters who end up telling the player about some points of interest. Eventually, the Snagem Hideout becomes available for exploration, the Shadow Pokémon Laboratory gets some Cipher refugees to battle, and a hidden Stadium in the Under is brought to the player's attention. Lastly, after all the Shadow Pokémon are snagged, the player will be notified of a Trainer that is attacking people with another Shadow Pokémon, who supposedly looks just like the player. After the copy's defeat, there are still Colosseum battles to be won and a Ho-Oh to be obtained in Battle Mode.

Purification techniques

Main article: Purification

Pokémon in the game can be purified in a variety of ways.

  • Walking around with Shadow Pokémon in the party.
  • Rubbing scents on the Pokémon (these can be bought at Agate Village).
  • Battling with them and calling out when the Pokémon reaches its Hyper Mode.
  • Placing a Shadow Pokémon in the Pokémon Day Care in Agate Village.

Once the Heart Gauge reaches the point where it says "The Pokémon's heart is about to open! Undo the final lock!", Trainers would go to the Agate Village shrine and use its power to restore the Pokémon's heart and remove the move known as Shadow Rush. Once the Pokémon has been purified, it will gain all experience it earned during the time it was a Shadow Pokémon, and acquire a special Ribbon exclusive to purified Pokémon.

After players have beaten the game, Pokémon can be traded to all Generation III games provided that their hearts are open (and certain objectives have been completed in FireRed and LeafGreen, if they are being traded to). Note that trading Pokémon to Ruby and Sapphire will not unlock the National Pokédex.

Colosseums

The other half of the game consists of several Colosseum venues that Trainers could send Pokémon from the RPG or the Game Boy Advance games to battle.

Rewards

While competing in the Mt. Battle 100 Trainer challenge in either the RPG or the Colosseum section of the game, players can receive Poké Coupons which can be used to buy items. Additionally, players have the option of storing Poké Coupons on a Pokémon Ruby or Sapphire game pak for later use. Below is a list of what players can receive after collecting a set amount of Poké Coupons.
