The Pokémon 2000 Stadium Tour was a series of events that were held across the United States and Canada[1] in 2000 promoting the release of Pokémon Stadium for the Nintendo 64 game console. At the event, attendees could see a preview of Pokémon Stadium and receive a Mew for the Generation I Game Boy games. Using the new Transfer Pak, competitors were able to watch their best Pokémon, from their favorite Game Boy game, battle in full 3D on the Nintendo 64. The Stadium Tour hosted Pokémon Battles in three skill groups: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Trainers were allowed to use either Pokémon Red, Blue, or Yellow for the tournament. If the attendees and their Pokémon performed well, they had the opportunity to earn Official Pokémon Trainer Badges. Pokémon Masters from Nintendo were on-hand to challenge the very best Pokémon Trainers to a Pokémon Master Trainer Challenge on mammoth big screen televisions. The winner of the east coast tournament at the Montgomery Mall in Maryland was Alex Ed Prins-Stairs.

The Final Battle

The final Pokémon battle for the trophy was fought 3-on-3 at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland using Pokémon Stadium (which had not yet been released). The battle was between competitor Ed Prins-Stairs (who went by the name Alex Prins-Stairs at the time) and a "Pokémon Master" staff member. The battle was cast live to a big screen television.

Prins-Stairs's team was Mewtwo, Mew and Starmie while the staff member's team was Mewtwo, Mew and Articuno. The match ultimately ended with the staff member forfeiting, resulting in Prins-Stairs being declared the winner. The trophy was mailed to the winner along with a Poké Ball filled with candy and a Mewtwo beanie plush.
