The Mobile Stadium data transfer screen in the Japanese version of Pokémon Crystal

The Mobile Stadium (Japanese: モバイルスタジアム Mobile Stadium) is a now inaccessible online service in the Japanese version of Pokémon Stadium 2 which allowed players to transfer data of timed mobile battles from the Japanese version of Pokémon Crystal via the Transfer Pak.

In Pokémon Crystal, the "Mobile Stadium" entry appears on the main menu and is accessible after connecting to the Pokémon Mobile System GB at least once. After transferring the battle data to Pokémon Stadium 2, it is converted into a video and rendered in full 3D graphics, being watchable via a similar feature in the game.

The indirect successor to the Mobile Stadium is the Vs. Recorder, introduced in Pokémon Platinum and present in the core series games ever since, which uses the same concept but different means of operation.


This is a video of a battle from the third match of a national cup tournament that was hosted in 2000, uploaded to Pokémon Stadium 2 via Mobile Stadium in Pokémon Crystal.
