The Battle Stadium was released in August 2000 and came packaged with Squirtle and Geodude[3].

The figures attach themselves to dedicated ports on the Battle Stadiums, which activates sound effects.

Electronic Ash's Talking Pokédex

When a Pokémon THINKCHIP figure is placed onto the Pokédex, the Pokémon's name, type, and battle stats can be read[4]. The collectable cards that come with each of the figures can slot into the display screen of the Pokedex.

Ash Figure sets

The Ash & Cyndaquil set was released sometime in 2001 [2].

The talking and moveable Ash figure requires four AA batteries to operate; the battery hatch is located in Ash's backpack. With the press of his belt, Ash will have a conversation with a Pokémon when a figure is attached to the port, which is contained within his Poké Ball. Each Pokémon figure results in a different interaction.
