Talk:Pokémon Stadium (Japanese)
- Yep. I'm going to take away all of the Pokemon that weren't in the game. Porygon-Z 16:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Red, Green, or Blue?
Findings and Questions
I've been doing some "research" on the Stadium series lately, and have come up with the following info:
- According to the first question seen here, the 42 Pokemon were selected for a reason. However, the translation sites just give me garbage. Can anyone translate it?
- Yellow is compatible with the game, as seen here in Question 12. The game uses colored Game Boys to show which game is connected, so Yellow's compatibility is confirmed at the end of this video when the player inserts a yellow Game Boy.
- Unlike the English Stadium, the game seems to use the cart mechanics. For instance, in the video in the third link, Tauros doesn't have to recharge after it uses Hyper Beam to defeat a Pokemon.
- In the L50-55 division, there are generic trainers rather than trainer classes from the game. (You can see one of the trainers in the video.) These trainers were later re-used in the Japanese version of the second Stadium. Does anyone know their names?
- The L50-55 and L1-30 divisions returned in the Japanese version of the second Stadium as Nintendo Cups 97 and 98 respectively. The Poke Cup in the international versions uses the level requirement of Nintendo Cup 97. You can see this info in the Stadium Cup talk page.
- There is a GB Tower in the game.
- Starmie has different animations, and I'm sure other Pokemon do as well.
- A video showed a mode similar to a Free Battle mode where you could select computer opponents from a list. Does anyone have any info on this mode?

- Something like:
- "By what criteria were the available 40 species chosen?
- With Pokémon that actually appeared at the past Pokémon League/s* at the core, and then adding Pokémon that weren't included until all Types were represented."
- I don't know if this is referring to the in-game Pokémon League, or if there were tournament/s called "Pokémon League". Bluesun 17:03, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
- Thanks for the reply.
I think they're referring to real-life tournaments, as the info for the Nintendo Cups 97-99 states they were based off of real tournaments. It would also explain the lack of pre-evos in the game. MagicBarrier 20:02, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
"their 3D sprites can still be viewed in the other modes"
There is no such thing as a "3D sprite". It's either a sprite (made from a pre-rendered 3D model to look 3D) or it's a 3D model. I'm not changing since I have no idea what it means (I would guess it should say "3D model", but I'm not sure). Dannyjenn 02:24, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
