Pokémon Stadium gives trainers an arena to engage in heated Pokémon battles, and offers them a ringside seat for the action. Tons of features, including support for playing your Game Boy Pokémon game through your N64, make Stadium a must-have for all Pokémon fans!
In Pokémon Stadium, you're able to battle using your most loyal Pokémon from the Red, Blue, and Yellow versions of Pokémon (sold separately). Thanks to a Transfer Pak that comes with Pokémon Stadium and plugs into the bottom of your controller, data can be transferred straight from a Game Boy cartridge to your N64.
The technical machines, attacks, and levels of your trained Pokémon are available on Pokémon Stadium, so you won't have to leave any of your favorites behind. You'll want your specially trained Pokémon to battle Stadium's toughest rivals.
There are 150 Pokémon that can be used, or "rented," in Pokémon Stadium, even if you decide not to transfer data from your Game Boy Pokémon games. (Mewtwo is never available as a rental Pokémon, but you can upload Mewtwo from your Pokémon Game Pak.) Pokémon Stadium will allow up to four players to compete in a grueling Pokémon tournament, designed to reveal which of your friends is the best Pokémon trainer.
Pokémon Stadium isn't all battles, though. The Kids Club mode features nine cutesy minigames that make for great multiplayer fun for all ages. Gallery mode lets players take snapshots of Pokémon (similar to Pokémon Snap), which can then be printed out as stickers at your local Pokémon Snap station.
While Pokémon Stadium doesn't require that you already have any Game Boy version of Pokémon, players won't be able to access two of the best features of the game without one. Pokémon Lab allows players to view, store, and better organize the data on their Game Paks, as well as trade Pokémon with another player (which requires an additional Transfer Pak, sold separately). GB Tower allows gamers to play their Game Boy Pokémon cartridge on the Nintendo 64. --Joe Hon

That said, Stadium is a spectacular game. While the minigames are fun and the Lab is a very useful utility, the challenge comes with the Gym Leader's castle and the Pokémon Stadium. Even with a strong lineup of Pokémon, players will find some of these competitions frustrating and difficult. These battles aren't the walk in the park, pull out a Mewtwo and kick the living daylights out of the competition type that we all got used to in the Game Boy games. There's actual challenges, strategy is key, and you'll find yourself using you your supply of TMs and HMs like no other, trying to find ways of boosting your Pokémon's attack skills, even those Level 100 ones. There are secret areas, a special difficulty mode (R2, which you can access after accomplishing something very obvious in the Stadium), special Pokémon gifts. For the Pokémaniac, this game will be exactly what you've been waiting for (outside a Pokémon 64).
However, the game is repetitive and, unless you are out trying to accomplish something like win R2 mode, can get boring since the battles are just that... battles. There isn't a storyline or towns to explore. There aren't people to talk to. It's just battling, working at the lab, and minigames. But these pitfalls are all part of the game's dependance on a Game Boy Pokémon pak. Stadium is supposed to be an addendum to Pokémon, not really a game in itself. And in that context, the game shines.
