Stadium - Walkthrough
This mode is for players who just want a quick PokeBattle. You will start off with 6 already set Pokemon, each depending on what player you are. Each are level 50 and are basic Pokemon.
This is the Pokemon Stadium VS mode. You must have 2 controllers, each with a Game Boy Game Pack with a Pokemon game inserted. You can set a time limit, and play according to the rules in the many Cups.
This is where you set the game options such as the sound and data settings.
The Main Menu. Here are it's sections:
Stadium: Single-Player mode. Battle in the Cups for Trophies.
Free Battle: This is the 1-4 Player mode. You control 1 team with a
friend and compete in a unruled battle.
Gym Leader Castle: Another Single-Player mode. Battle against the Gym Leaders
from the Game Boy version!
Pokemon Lab: This is where you can organize all your pokemon/items. This place
allows you to trade and view a Pokedex with all you pokemon listed.

Now, let me show you how you can get rid of the 1st trainers to take you on.
ROUND 1: BOULDER BADGE
This trainer uses Nidorina, Ekans, Venonat, Butterfree, Kakuna, and Paras.
Suggested Types to use: Fire, Psychic
From what I have seen, the trainer starts out with 2 Bug and 1 Poison. Balance it out and use 2 Fire and 1 Psychic for a sure victory!
ROUND 2: CASCADE BADGE
This trainer uses Pidgeotto, Farfetch'D, Bellsprout, Ivysaur, Zubat, and Geodude.
Suggested Types to use: Psychic, Electric, Water
It is really up to you if you want to start out with a Psychic or Electric Pokemon. Psychic for Poison Types, Electric for Zubat and birds, and Water for Geodude.
ROUND 3: THUNDER BADGE
This trainer uses Poliwhirl, Wartortle, Magicarp, Slowpoke, Staryu, and Nidorino.
Suggested Types to use: Electric, Psychic
Only 1 Poison type, rest are Water. Should be a easy battle.
ROUND 4: RAINBOW BADGE
This trainer uses Ninetales, Growlithe, Sandshrew, Drowzee, Charmeleon, and Vulpix.
Suggested Types: Water, Bug
Water will wipe out the Fire Types, while the Bug Type knocks out that Drowzee.
ROUND 5: SOUL BADGE
This trainer uses Voltorb, Magnemite, Porygon, Mankey, Kingler, and Raichu.
Suggested Types: Rock or Ground, Psychic, Electric
Voltorb, Raichu, and Magnemite are helpless against the
Rock/Ground types. Kingler is nothing with
a Electric guy against him and Mankey is a wimp against a Psychic. Porygon isn't a big problem.
ROUND 6: MARSH BADGE
This trainer uses Rhyhorn, Wigglytuff, Kadabra, Machop, Seadra, and Gastly.
Suggested Types: Water, Electric, Psychic
I would start off with a Psychic to knock out Gastly and/or Machop. Electric against Seadra beats him badly, and Water will make Rhyhorn nothing. Kadabra and Wigglytuff could be a problem if they aren't taken care of in a fast manner.
ROUND 7: VOLCANO BADGE
This trainer uses Gyarados, Mr. Mime, Arcanine, Tentacruel, Dewgong, and Meowth.
Suggested Types: Electric, Water
Electric will make short work of Gyarados, also against Dewgong and Tentacruel. Water will wipe out Arcanine. Mr. Mime and Meowth are up to you.
ROUND 8: EARTH BADGE
This trainer uses Dragonair, Slowbro, Clefable, Tentacool, Raticate, and Golduck.
Suggested Types: Electric, Ice
Ice will give Dragonair the cold shoulder, while the rest should be shocked with Electricity.
