Game information Edit

Pokémon Stadium (ポケモンスタジアム2 Pokemon Sutajiamu Tsū, lit. "Pokemon Stadium 2"), is a strategy video game developed by Nintendo EAD with the assistance of Creatures and HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It was released on April 30, 1999 in Japan, February 29, 2000 in North America, and April 7, 2000 in Europe. Though known in Western regions as Pokémon Stadium, the game is actually a sequel to the 1998 Pokemon Stadium (ポケモンスタジアム Pokemon Sutajiamu).

The original Pocket Monsters' Stadium was released in Japan on August 1, 1998. This version featured only 42 Pokémon available for battle, instead of the full 151 Pokémon from the Game Boy versions. The remaining Pokémon were viewable in a Pokédex, but the models lacked the required animations for battle. This version was not released outside of Japan, and as such the numbering of the subsequent 2 is ahead of the North America releases.

The later Pocket Monsters' Stadium 2 was originally intended for the Nintendo 64DD format, but as the Nintendo 64DD was a commercial failure, it was transferred to cartridge format. The first game had met criticism for its difficulty, and in the sequel, the AI was toned down to make it easier for average players to beat. It was eventually released as Pokémon Stadium throughout North America and Europe. This version features all 151 original Pokémon from the original Game Boy games. The North American version of this game featured support for transferring Pokémon from Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow via the N64 Transfer Pak. The North American version could also be purchased in a bundle that included the game with Transfer Pak, a Nintendo 64 with a gray controller, a second purple controller, the Pokémon Stadium Official Strategy Guide by Prima Games, and a "Cool Porygon" trading card.
