  1. One of the most rounded and comprehensive packages you're ever likely to see, something that makes it worthy of recommendation to all discerning Pokefans out there.

    Pokémon fans can't go wrong with Stadium 2. You can work out your home-grown Pokémon in N64 color, and the Transfer Pak enables you to play any Game Boy Pokémon game on a big screen.

    It looks pretty, and is an impressive game -- but is ONLY for Pokemon fiends.

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. There’s no way the game will appeal to those who can’t stand Pokemon. There’s just not enough to make the game stretch that far.

    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.

Spectacular dubbing of commentators in the fighting !!. Fun mini-games and lots of tournaments, without forgetting that we can play the version of pokemon red / blue or gold / silver on our television by putting the cartridge of the gameboy in the adapter that is included with the game. Inexplicably, no desktop console pokemon game has surpassed the quality of this to date. Full Review »
