Pokemon is one of the most popular game franchises that Nintendo has released. In fact, the franchise has spawned numerous TV shows as well as plenty of games in the past years.
Pokemon games are usually Role-playing games where you take control of a character and battle against different gym leaders and such.
But today, I will talk about the Pokemon Stadium Game for the Nintendo 64. This is not considered as an RPG game since this game doesn’t really have a plot to it.
Basically, this game pits you with other Pokemon and you will also have the chance to defeat other gym trainers as well.
The beauty of the Pokemon Stadium Game for the Nintendo 64 is that it has a “transfer pak” addon. Basically, what this does is that it allows you to transfer your Pokemon lineup from the Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow games. If you’ve played those games and have a sizable lineup of Pokemon, you can access them and trade them to be used in the Pokemon Stadium Game for the Nintendo 64.
There are two major game modes in the game. One game mode is the Stadium cup, where you will battle against Pokemon trainers in a three-on-three style format.
Another major game mode is the “Gym Leader Castle”. In this game mode, you will be pitted against 8 different Kanto Gym Leaders. After defeating these gym leaders, you will then fight the Elite Four.
After defeating Mewtwo, he will open up a new Gym Leader Castle tournament but with a higher difficulty rating.
The Pokemon Stadium Game for the Nintendo 64 showcases 151 Pokemon. The thing about this game is that you have to make sure that you have a Pokemon with a different elemental affinity.
That is to make sure that you have a Pokemon lineup that can fight against different types of Pokemon.
Your lineup has to be dynamic so that you can change to the Pokemon that is a weakness for your opponent’s Pokemon.
Aside from the two major game modes, there are additional contents that are added to the game as well.
The first additional content is the “Free Battle” mode. In this mode, you can play against your friends in a freestyle format. You have the option to follow the original rules or you can create your own set of rules.
The next additional content is the “Battle Now!”. In this game mode, you will fight against the computer AI or you can fight with another player as well. Both of you will have preset Pokemon to use.
There are also various unlockables in the game and you can see them in the victory palace and the gallery.
Even though this game doesn’t have a plot, the Pokemon Stadium Game for the Nintendo 64 is still a fun game and one that every Pokemon fanatic should consider playing.
