POKÉMON STADIUM | 2000

Nerdy Facts:

  • The game was actually a sequel to a Japan-only game called Pocket Monster Stadium, which only had 42 Pokémon available.

  • The game had a hidden reference to the anime: if you transferred the starter Pikachu from Pokémon Yellow, it would say its name instead of the default cry.

  • The game allowed you to change the color of your Pokémon if you nicknamed them, depending on your trainer ID and the nickname.
