Alternate Pokemon Colors
Did you ever notice how some of the Pokémon that appear in Pokémon
Stadium have different colors? The secret to the color variations
lie in the names you give your Pokémon as well as your trainer ID
number (assiged to you in Pokemon Blue, Red or Yellow, whenever you
start a new game). While there are a few secret names that change
only certain Pokemon's colors, there are a few naming tricks that
result in different color variations. For example:
Use only lower caps (ie: poliwhirl)
Reverse the syllables (ie: DRILLBEE)
Abridge the names (ie: Pika)
To unlock a hidden 6-on-1 battle with Mewtwo, beat the Gym Leader
Castle and get trophies in all 10 tournaments in the Stadium Mode.
The map screen will now turn to a night scene and a bonus tournament
will open up in which you battle against the psychic super-Pokemon,
Mewtwo (#150). Once you beat Mewtwo, you unlock a new game mode.
Open Up R-2 Mode
To get the secret R-2 Mode (as well as a brand-new title screen)
defeat Mewtwo after you have beaten the Stadium Mode and Gym Leader
Castle Mode. You will now see the final credits sequence, which will
unlock the harder R-2 Mode and all new battles. You can toggle
between R-2 and Regular Mode at the start-up screen.
GB Speed Upgrades
There are two secret speed upgrades to the GB Tower Game Boy emulator
that let you play Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow at much higher speeds:
Doduo Mode: Beat the Poké Cup. Once you have won all the Poké Cup
tournaments, the GB Tower changes into Doduo GB Tower and a Doduo
sticker appears on the Game Boy. The Doduo upgrade doubles the speed
of the game play when playing the Game Boy game on your N64.
Dodrio Mode: Play the Game Boy games at hyper speed with this
alternate speed settings. To get it, you need to beat the Prime Cup
(after you have already beaten the Poké Cup). You can switch between
the different GB Tower speed settings during gameplay by pressing C
Once you have beaten both the R-1 mode (including Mewtwo) and the R-2
Mode (including Mewtwo), you are given a set of bonus stickers that you
can access in the Gallery Mode. When you're on the Gallery main screen,
press and hold L and R and move the Cursor to Print. If you keep the
buttons pressed, the Print option will now change to Bonus. You will
now have access to a set of 16 bonus "wallpaper" stickers from all the
different modes that you can print out at "Snap" Stations.
Get Amnesia Psyduck
Have you ever wondered how you can get the elusive Amnesia technique?
Well, it's hidden deep in Pokemon Stadium. Unlocking it will take a
while, but it's definitely worth it. You have to register ALL 151 Pokemon
in the Hall of Fame. Whenever you beat a tournament (or Gym Leader Castle),
your six Pokemon are entered into the Hall of Fame. It doesn't matter
whether you use rental Pokemon or your own, but you can't have any gaps.
Once you've filled it all up, you are awarded a free Psyduck bonus Pokemon
that knows the Amnesia technique.
Get Surfing Pikachu
Yes, it's true: Surfing Pikachu is hidden in Pokémon Stadium. To teach
your Pikachu Surf (a technique it can normally not learn), you need to
first unlock the R-2 (Round 2) mode. Then do the following:
Enter the R-2 Prime Cup's Master Ball division (you have to beat the
first three divisions first). Assemble a team that contains a Pikachu
that does not yet know Surf. You HAVE to use a Pikachu from your Game
Boy game. You cannot unlock Surfing Pikachu using a Rental Pokémon.
Do not register your team! Pick it directly from your Game Boy cartridge.
You now have to beat the Prime Cup's Master Ball division using a three-
Pokémon team that always contains Pikachu. Pikachu has to be in every
one of the eight battles. You are not allowed to use any continues.
If you do, you won't get Surfing Pikachu.
Once you have fulfilled all the above conditions and beaten the cup,
you are shown an award screen with Pikachu standing on a surfboard.
From here on, Pikachu can use the Surf technique both in battle and
during gameplay (Game Boy versions only). If you've got Pokémon Yellow,
you can now also access the hidden Surfing Pikachu mini-game. Simply
go to the small hut on the northern beach of Route 19.
New Title Screen
Beat both the Gym Leader Castle and Stadium modes to change the title
screen (in addition to the map mode). The new title shows depict Pikachu,
Blastoise, Charizard, Venusaur and Mewtwo.
Win Bonus Pokémon
Each time you beat the Gym Leader Castle (including the Final Four and
your Rival), you will receive one of eight semi-rare to rare Pokémon.
These Pokémon are awarded at random, so it's likely that you'll need
to beat the Gym Leader Castle again and again to get the ones you want.
Note that once you have beaten the Castle, you only need to defeat the
Final Four and your Rival again if you want to win more Pokémon.
Here are the Pokémon you can win:
When executing a fighting move, hold A when the description of the move
If you win the tournament on hard, you can get all the pokemon
(including all pokegods).

Pokémon can only be between level 15-20.
Level ranges between 25-30. There is a height requirement though.
Height 6'8" limit and weight 44 pounds.

Blastoise. After you have beaten them, go to Pokemon Lab and use
the new item called Toge-Stone. Use it on Bulbasuar and you will
(Note: you have to catch Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu,
Omastar and Ninetales!) To get ChronoMew you have to pick Bulbasaur,
Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Omastar and Ninetales then at the

Leader's Castle, Free Battle, and Mewtwo Battle modes.
Kids Club Hyper mode
In one player mode with three CPU controlled opponents, successfully
complete "Who's the best?" five consecutive times on the hard difficulty
setting within one match. Hyper will be unlocked as a new difficulty
setting for CPU controlled players.
Avoid recoil damage
If you use an attack that you know will kill the opposing Pokémon, but
will hit you with the recoil, make sure that your Pokémon has at least
20 HP left. Use the attack and you will not suffer the recoil damage.
