'''Battle Mode''' is a mode in the [[Pokémon Stadium series]] in which two players can play against each other or a CPU using any [[rental Pokémon]] available in the game or from the [[Generation I]] and [[Generation II]] games. Battle take place on a grassy field. In Battle Mode, two players battle onceone CPU player, teamwork emphasized and the only way to win during this type of battle. Up to four people can play together with only one available CPU player and players have the option of setting the CPU's difficulty from Easy, Normal, and Hard. Players can form teams each choosing 3 pokémon and players can decide who goes first by selecting there pokémon first on the selection screen. Pressing L will reset all players pokémon choices on the selection screen allowing the players to choose again. Holding the R button will allow you to check which pokémon you have selected alongside your partners on the selection screen. Players use the A, B, and C buttons to select there pokémon and once all 6 have been chosen the battle will begin. In both games players may also choose which stadium to battle in which most of the stadiums are based off environments from the respective game and some based off environments from [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]]. Players battle until the opposing trainers pokémon are knocked out. Players can switch to their teammates through the switch pokémon screen at anytime. If all of the teammates pokémon are defeated that player cannot resume the battle and must count on there partner to finish the battle. The CPU player cannot form a team with any of the players whatsoever. In [[Pokémon Stadium 2]] the CPU player becomes [[Cal]] and introduces a different character design then the one used in [[Pokémon Gold and Silver]]. Cal will use whatever pokémon the player assigns unless the Challenge Cup is chosen. Also players and Cal can be given any amount of pokémon (if Free Battle Mode is selected) from one pokémon to six. Rules are introduced for Battle Mode, depending on what cup you choose will determine the type of rules that are introduced. Rules can be reviewed using the R button at the mode selection screen alongside available pokémon for the specified cup (Example: Little Cup is for level five pokémon only). Restrictions like making two foes sleep are also enforced unless Free Battle Mode is selected. The Custom Cup option allows players to customize what rules and restrictions alongside levels for pokémon and available pokémon that can and can't be selected. Battle Mode can be used to register pokémon sets for the individual cups and up to 10 sets can be registered for each cup and even Free Battle Mode. Pokémon from the Gameboy and Gameboy Color pokémon games can be registered and entered as well allowing for players to utilize more powerful and more diverse pokémon. Trainers from the Gameboy Color series will have different character pictures than the default pictures.
