Pokemon Stadium - Tips - The PoJo




Stadium Tips Page

POJO NOTE:  We could sure use some tips... Stadium is just as hard as it is fun!  Feel free to send in what Pokemon (and attacks) you are using to beat all the Cups, Gym Leader Castle, and Mewtwo!  We'll continue to update tips/codes as we receive them! ( Tips are sent in from our readers, and we cannot guarantee they will work....)

Beat Mewtwo

  • To beat Mewtwo on Pokémon Stadium without any effort in training your own Pokémon choose for your six rental Pokémon: Electrode, Rhyhorn, Rhydon, Krabby, Kingler, and Pinsir. Use Electrode first and use Thunder Wave so Mewtwo is slower than everyone. Use Flash so that Mewtwo has trouble hitting you. After Electrode faints (which could take a while) use any one of the others and use their One-Hit KO move. DO NOT DAMAGE MEWTWO! If you do he can use Rest and shake off the Paralysis and mess you up. He will be messed up until you totally crush him.

Mewtwo too tough!!??

  • To beat Mewtwo with one pokemon, Get a Snorlax lv.100 and teach it
    explosion.  Explosion with be a special move and will defeat Mewtwo with one hit!   So far I haven't found a pokemon that can survive Snorlax's hit! It truly
    is one of the most powerful moves on the game!!!

Mini games too easy??!!

  • To get harder mini games in the Kids' Club, set the setting's on Whose The
    Best, and Hard mode. You can set it to any amount of wins. But if you beat
    hard mode on whose the best five times in a row (good luck) you will open
    something like a R-2 mode for the Kids' Club. And it's a lot harder.

Stadium Tricks...

  • I’m not sure if anyone has tried this yet but I was fooling around with my
    Pokemon Blue and Pokemon Stadium. Here is a really easy way to get the
    starting 3 Pokemon (Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur) without trading with
    a friend in the beginning of the game using either red or blue. First
    start a new game and select any of the 3 starting pokemon (it doesn’t matter
    who). Then get the pokedex and catch 3 pokemon, I caught rattata, pidgey
    and caterpie. Then plug in your pokemon red or blue and go into Professor
    Oaks lab and into the list of all your pokemon, the pc all the way to the
    left. Go into that and into the selection: pokemon. You should have 4
    pokemon in the left box: party, and then change the right box to N64 box 1.
    Place all but 1 of the pokemon you caught in the N64 box 1. Save then go
    into the game boy tower and start a new game. Choose a different starting
    pokemon, get the pokedex and go back into the same pc. Transfer the 3
    pokemon saved from the N64 game and into your party. Repeat to get the
    other starting pokemon and your done. It may take awhile but it is
    definately worth it. You can also do this if you have already played
    through the game and you can get a second Mewtwo, Moltres, Articuno,
    Zapdos, Eevee and some other pokemon you haven’t caught. Remember you must
    leave 1 pokemon in the gameboy pack. Hope this trick helps!!

MissingNo Solved!?

  • I noticed that your Pokemon Stadium section does not yet have accurate information regarding glitch pokemon like Missingno. I was feeling bold yesterday, so I tried to use my Missingno with stadium, and here’s what happened (results may or may not be typical).  You can’t battle with him, because the game classifies him as Level ? and therefore unable to meet any of the tournament guidelines (even "anything goes"!) His type is ???? and all his stats are ????. Instead of being #000 like he is in Game Boy, he is number ????. Although you can’t battle with him, the game still classifies him as Pokemon data, so he can be manipulated and transferred in Prof. Oak’s computer. And if you go to the Snap mode, you’ll find that Missingno looks a lot like the little doll that appears when you use substitute :)  He hasn’t glitched my game yet, so as far as I know it’s safe to transfer him to stadium.  WARNING: Catching him in the Game Boy version won’t erase your game (I’ve had him for a year now and my data is still intact) but it will definitely mess up your hall of fame. So be warned. Dan

Beat Mewtwo!

  • There are two good strategies to beat Mewtwo. One is to use a Jolteon with
    Toxic and use Pin Missile. The other is to have your own Mewtwo, Ditto, and
    Mew (if you have one) and transform in to Mewtwo. Then use Blizzard. I hope
    this helps - Ryan Southwell

See the Unseen!

  • Having trouble beating Koga's invisible wall maze in Pokémon Red, Blue,
    or Yellow? Then upload it to the N64 on PKMN Stadium. There will be
    little dots (4 to be precise) on squares with invisible walls on them.
    This makes avoiding trainers and getting to Koga quickly a snap!

Color Swap?

  • Did you ever notice when you’re battling other trainers and their pokemon
    are slightly different, i.e. a green Sandshrew or Rhyhorn with
    blue mouth? i read out of the strategy guide that if you see a strange
    pokemon on the game, write down its nickname, and then on the gameboy
    pokemon go to the name changer in lavender town and change its name to the
    one you wrote down and then load it on stadium, you’re pokemon will have
    the same feature when you battle. Sounds complicated but its cool!

Trade with Yourself!

  • Hello Pojo. Love your site! I have a great trick to move Pokemon between 2 games. You don’t need to have a link cable or a Gameboy!!!!! All you need is 2 games and Pokemon stadium. First you need 2 games. For example, say you have a red and yellow version. Say you have a Pinsir in the yellow version but not the red. Simply put the Pinsir in Stadium and save. Next, turn off the game and exchange versions. Turn on the game and move the Pinsir from the Stadium to the red version. This works with any Pokemon and any 2 versions. This takes a long while but it is worth it!!!!

Here’s the team I used to beat the gym leaders and Masterball level of the
Prime Cup.

  • Dragonite
    ice beam
    body slam
    hyper beam
  • Jolteon
    pin missle
    double team
  • Vaporeon
    Ice beam
    hydro pump
  • Tauros
    Ice beam
    hyper beam
  • Gengar
    night shade
    dream eater

All are at level 100 and were raised manually (no rare candies) except for
1 on tauros. All were maxed out with stat enhancing drugs like carbos, iron etc.
Their stats are far superior to rental pokemon of the same level.
I was only defeated once in all of the battles with them.

Tauros and Dragonite are the heart of the team because of their ability
to defeat many pokemon types. Tauros is usually sent out first and can
defeat one or two pokemon on his own without having to switch to the
others. Dragonite is great because he is resistant to many attacks fire/’
water etc.

Never underestimate your opponent in stadium. Try to have as many
different types of attacks on one team as possible. If all else fails use
stat changing moves like minimize and swords dance. If you can get your
pokemon "dug in" you may have a better chance of winning. Don’t forget
about paralysis, sleep and confusion -your opponent won’t.

Remember your opponent’s weakness not just type wekness but wekness to
attack based moves or special based moves. I.e. if you have a charizard
vs. a gengar it’s much better to use fly on it than try to attack it’s high
special with a fire attack. Also remember that you get a 1.5x damage
boost by matching type with pokemon. Remember that when choosing which
attacks to use and teach pokemon.

Pokémon Stadium Cheat Codes
Tips sent in by Michael Le

  • Extra Damage
    When performing a fighting move, hold "A".
  • Alternate Pokémon Colors
    Some of the Pokémon that appear in Pokémon Stadium have different colors.
    The secret to the color variations lie in the names you give your Pokémon as
    well as your trainer ID number (assigned to you in Pokémon Blue, Red or
    Yellow, whenever you start a new game). Well there are a few secret names
    that change certain Pokémons’ color. These are a few naming tricks that
    result in different color variations:
    · The whole name is lower caps (i.e.: poliwhirl)
    · Reverse the order of the syllables (i.e.: DRILLBEE)
    · Abridge the names (i.e.: Pika)
  • Battle Mewtwo
    To play a hidden 6-on-1 battle with Mewtwo beat Gym Leader Castle and get
    all trophies in all 10 tournaments in the Stadium Mode. The map screen
    should turn into a night scene then a bonus tournament will open up, you
    will battle against the psychic super-Pokémon, Mewtwo (#150). Once you have
    beaten Mewtwo you will unlock a new game mode.
  • Bonus Stickers
    Once you have beaten both the R-1 mode (including Mewtwo) and the R-2 Mode
    (including Mewtwo), you are given a set of bonus stickers that you can
    access in the Gallery Mode. When you're on the Gallery main screen hold down
    L and R and move the Cursor to Print. If you keep the buttons held the Print
    option will change to Bonus. You will now have access to a set of 16 bonus
    wallpaper stickers from all the different modes that you can print out at
    Snap Stations.
  • GB Speed Upgrades
    There are two secret speed upgrades to the GB Tower Game Boy emulator that
    let you play Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow at much higher speeds:
    · Doduo Mode: Beat the Poké Cup. Once you have won all the Poké Cup
    tournaments, the GB Tower changes into Doduo GB Tower and a Doduo sticker
    appears on the Game Boy. The Doduo upgrade doubles the speed of the game
    play when playing the Game Boy game on your N64.
    · Dodrio Mode: Play the Game Boy games at hyper speed with these alternate
    speed settings. To get it, you need to beat the Prime Cup (after you have
    already beaten the Poké Cup).
    You can switch between the different GB Tower speed settings during game
    play by pressing C Right.
  • Get Amnesia Psyduck
    Unlocking it will take a while, but it's worth it. You have to register all
    151 Pokémon in the Hall of Fame. Whenever you beat a tournament (or Gym
    Leader Castle), your six Pokémon are entered into the Hall of Fame. It
    doesn't matter whether you use rental Pokémon or your own, but you can't
    have any gaps. Once you've done it, you are awarded a free Psyduck that
    knows Amnesia.
  • Get Surfing Pikachu
    To teach your Pikachu Surf (a technique it can normally not learn) you need
    to first unlock the R-2 (Round 2) mode. Then do the following:
    · Enter the R-2 Prime Cup's Master Ball division (you have to beat the first
    three divisions first).
    · Have a team that contains a Pikachu that does not yet know Surf. You have
    to use a Pikachu from your Game Boy game. You cannot unlock Surfing Pikachu
    using a Rental Pokémon.
    Do not register your team. Pick it directly from your Game Boy cartridge.
    · You now have to beat the Prime Cup's Master Ball division using a team
    that always has Pikachu. Pikachu has to be in every one of the eight
    · You can’t to use any continues. If you do you won't get Surfing Pikachu.
    Once you have done all of the conditions shown and beaten the cup you are
    shown an award screen with Pikachu standing on a surfboard. From here on
    Pikachu can use the Surf technique both in battle and during game play (Game
    Boy versions only). If you've got Pokémon Yellow you can now also access the
    hidden Surfing Pikachu mini-game. Simply go to the small hut on the northern
    beach of Route 19.
  • New Title Screen
    Beat both the Gym Leader Castle and Stadium modes to change the title screen
    (in addition to the map mode). The new title shows depict Pikachu,
    Blastoise, Charizard, Venusaur and Mewtwo.
  • Open Up R-2 Mode
    To get the secret R-2 Mode (as well as a brand-new title screen) defeat
    Mewtwo after you have beaten the Stadium Mode and Gym Leader Castle. You
    will now see the final credits sequence, it will unlock the harder R-2 Mode
    and all new battles. You can toggle between R-2 and Regular Mode at the
    start-up screen by pressing C-Right
  • Each time you beat the Gym Leader Castle (including the Final Four and your Rival) you will receive one of eight semi-rare to rare Pokémon. These
    Pokémon are awarded at random, so it's likely that you'll need to beat the
    Gym Leader Castle again and again to get the ones you want. Once you have
    beaten the Castle you only need to defeat the Final Four and your Rival
    again if you want to win more Pokémon.
    Here are the Pokémon you can win:
    #001 Bulbasaur
    #004 Charmander
    #007 Squirtle
    #106 Hitmonlee
    #107 Hitmonchan
    #133 Eevee
    #138 Omanyte
    #140 Kabuto


Here is a list of the Pokemon I use to battle in Pokemon Stadium. So far,
I’ve beaten the Gym Leader Castle and all of the "ball" categories in the
Prime Cup except for the Master Ball category.   Tips sent in by Tim Martin

  • Jolteon: Double Kick, Thunder, Thunder Bolt, Body Slam
    Double Kick super effective against rock types, which are Jolteon’s weakness.
    Thunder is the most powerful attack, and Thunder Bolt is for when you don’t
    need to do much damage, and you need accuracy. Body Slam is for when the
    enemy is resistant to electricity.

  • Mewtwo: Psychic, Toxic, Barrier, Recover
    Psychic is Mewtwo’s strongest attack. Toxic is great at taking down really
    strong opponents, especially ones that like to stall, or against other
    pokemon w/ Recover. Barrier is so you stay alive by taking very small amounts
    of damage, and Recover gains back HP you’ve lost.

  • Dragonite: Blizzard, Hyper Beam, Body Slam, Horn Drill
    Blizzard is super effective against other dragon types, grass, and flying
    types. Hyper Beam is his strongest attack. Body Slam is for when you don’t
    need to do a lot of damage, and it saves PP. Horn Drill is a great
    desperation attack, or when you want to defeat someone quickly.

  • Sandslash: Earthquake, Slash, Dig, Rock Slide.
    Since Earthquake and Dig are ground attacks, you don’t have much to use
    against flying types, but Rock Slide is super effective. Earthquake is the
    strongest ground type attack. Slash is a great normal move with a critical
    hit almost every time. Dig is pretty strong, it wastes the opponent’s PP, and
    stalls as well.

  • Flareon: Flamethrower, Fire Spin, Fire Blast, Body Slam
    Fire Blast is the strongest fire type attack. Flamethrower is for when you
    don’t need to do as much damage as Fire Blast. Fire Spin is good for when you
    don’t want the enemy to attack, if you can avoid the problem of bad accuracy.
    Body Slam is for fire resistant enemies.

  • Blastoise: Blizzard, Surf, Hydro Pump, Body Slam
    Blizzard protects Blastoise from grass type enemies. Hydro Pump is the
    strongest water attack. Surf has better accuracy and more PP than Hydro Pump,
    so use it when you don’t need to do as much damage. Body Slam is for water
    resistant enemies.

  • Tips: Use the Cinnabar Island Infinite Item trick in your GB game to get
    infinite PP ups (they come in really handy in long battles) and infinite TM
    8’s (Body Slam)
