Talk:Pokémon Stadium (English)
I don't know what to do but there are 3 Stadiums in Japan. American Pokemon Stadium 2 is named Pocket Monsters Stadium KinGin (GoldSilver) in Japan, American Pokemon Stadium "1" is named Pocket Monsters Stadium 2 and Japanese Pocket Monsters Stadium "1" is a completely different game, older and Japanese-only. So, what to do. We must have an article about it! But what to name the Article? Maybe Pokemon Stadium (Japanese)?

Japanese Version Cups
Seriously, I can't believe that NO ONE pointed this out (though it is mentioned on the Stadium Cups talk page).
The Japanese version has six Cups instead of four, as you can see here. (The info is also available on several sites that gave info on Stadium before its international releases.) In addition to the Pika, Petit, and Prime Cups, there are Nintendo Cup 97, Nintendo Cup 98, and Nintendo Cup 99. The Nintendo Cups 97 and 98 are based off of the Stadium 0's L50-55 and L1-30 divisions respectively, while Nintendo Cup 99 has a L1-50 level restriction and has four divisions. The Nintendo Cup 99 also had to be cleared to unlock one of the modes for the GB Tower.
Here's the interesting part: According to the Japanese Stadium site (check the top right link at the bottom of the page), the rules for the Nintendo Cups were based on actual Japanese tournaments. You can find one tournament on Stadium 0's Japanese site.
It seems like the Poke Cup in the international versions uses Cup 97's level restriction and Cup 99's four divisions. The Poke Cup's Japanese name is also the Nintendo Cup, which would explain why it's billed as the official Nintendo tournament.
Nintendo Cup 97 also has some generic trainers that appeared in Stadium 0 but not in any international versions. Once again, does anyone have any info on these trainers? MagicBarrier 05:37, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
Level 20 Gym Leader Castle prize Pokemon
I was playing stadium the other day and defeated the rival, but the prize pokemon I had gotten was a level 5 Squirtle. So is it that the Pokemon are the same level as they appear in the game or each at level 5?--FHJoker 08:59, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
