    First Pokemon Stadium brought the revolution to N64. This, the second one, isn't that original or fresh of a game like the first one. Basically, we could say this is a Pokemon Stadium 1.5. It does everything PS1 done but better, with more features (Pokemon's, tourneys, mini games...).

    Now as an adult, I say this is still the best console game on Pokemon compared to its predecessor (Coliseum and Battle Revolution). Even if you don't have a Gameboy port drive for your portable games( Gold, Silver, Red, etc.), this game is still enjoyable. However, you are limited to rental Pokemon with random stats and move-sets that may not be in your favor against opponents, especiallyNow as an adult, I say this is still the best console game on Pokemon compared to its predecessor (Coliseum and Battle Revolution). Even if you don't have a Gameboy port drive for your portable games( Gold, Silver, Red, etc.), this game is still enjoyable. However, you are limited to rental Pokemon with random stats and move-sets that may not be in your favor against opponents, especially in Gym Castle Mode. The option to play your Gameboy games are good, however one slight move on the N64 controller while playing may case the game to crash and delete your save file, which is an absolute minus. There are sweet extras such as the Pokemon library and Mini-games. Soundtrack is good and the option to remove the announcer's voice is a plus for those who can't stand his voice. Graphics has improved from the first installment. Gameplay hours depend on how much you invest your time on the francise and what is available to you (Pokemon party, friends available, gameboy pack, etc.). This game is great for the Pokemon fan, but not for everyone. Expand

    Not bad, wish you could use lugia, ho-oh, and mewtwo though. Otherwise, pretty fun. Also, great minigames. If only pokemon silver and gold didnt break so easily

  1. The extensive Pokedex and library reference guide are almost worth the price of admission alone. Add to that, the capability of the Transfer Pak to access Pokemon from the Game Boy versions and things really begin looking up.
  2. The best new feature is the school... There's no more need for those huge strategy books--this mode covers everything and reinforces it in a way no book could.

    The Pokemon Academy section of the game was brilliant, and the mini-games are a lot more fun. What it boils down to is this: Did you play through Gold or Silver? Did you enjoy battling? If so, you will love this game. If you did not, pass.
