Pokemon Stadium 2 FAQ --------------------- Copyright 1999 Paul Springer You may use this on your site provided I get full credit. If not, then may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits. Last updated 1/03/00 - Final Update 1/3/00 - OK, I'm finished taking E-mails and ICQ messages from the same dumb people who ask the same dumb questions. I get inundated every day with things like "hi pokeman i like is fun and mew is there/////" in 4 different languages. I have never received so many dumb questions from so many people who feel like I should DROP what I'm doing and answer their idiotic questions that could be answered by actually READING THIS GODDAMN THING! I'll say it one last time. IF IT'S NOT IN HERE, THEN I DON'T KNOW! Gamefaqs is where my FAQ resides. If it's been filtered and distributed to other sites, that's fine with me. But from this point on, I will refuse to answer any more questions about this game. Period. If you go to a site that has an older version of this FAQ, then you aren't reading this right now, and are in for the verbal thrashing of a lifetime... This is the last update I will make to this FAQ. Deal with it. 7/10/99 - Please read the **** area of "About the game." I'm tired of getting questions that are answered by actually READING this thing, and other messages like "hi do you know pokemons?" Yeesh. 6/16/99 - Organized the attacks by Kana symbol, according to what I believe to be the Japanese alphabetical order. I thought it would make thigns easier to find. 6/15/99 - Complete redesign. If you read the Gameplay section, you'll see why I think it's easier this way. Let me know if you like it. I did this at work, so didn't have access to the game to see the types of attacks the unsorted ones fell under. I'll fix it in the next update. 5/22/99 - Added a Japanese note. Added more Pokemon moves. Removed the Height and Weight listings, since they'd probably never be completed. Removed the comments from the Pokemon listings. They sucked anyways... 5/16/99 - Added some more Pokemon moves. Added a section on the Mini Games. Added some more gameplay notes. 5/14/99 - Added some Pokemon moves and transleted a few of the menus. Added some gameplay info and other miscellaneous stuff. 5/13/99 - First incarnation of the FAQ. All the Pokemon, but none of their moves. Table of Contents ----------------- Intro About the game About my Japanese Menus Gameplay Descriptions The Charcaters The Attacks Mini Games Intro ----- Welcome to my Pokemon Stadium 2 FAQ! I know I never got around to finishing the first one, but it was because of this wonderful update to the first game that I decided to postpone it until PS 2 was done and out. Well, now it is, and let the translation begin! About the game -------------- Pokemon Stadium 2 is a one on one Pokemon battle game, in which you pit your POekmon against another player, or the computer in a variety of tournaments. It is NOT an adventure game like the Game Boy version, although it's rumored to be possible to play the Gameboy style game in PS 2 with the GB Pack and a Japanese Pokemon Game Boy Game. As of right now, only Japanese Pokemon Game Boy games work with PS 2. I'm sure that will change if/when it comes out here. Pokemon Stadium 2 is an update to Pokemon Stadium, both of which are for the Nintendo 64. PS 1 was never released in the US, but the word is that Nintendo will release PS 2 in the US as Pokemon Stadium. The difference between PS 1 and PS 2 is that PS 1 only came with 40 or so Pokemon ready for use, and I believe that you had to upload the rest with the included GB pack, but I'm not sure. It could be that you could only update the existing ones with the stats on your GB paks. I'll find out more later. Anyway, PS 2 now comes with 150 Pokemon, and may even include Mew and Togepi, although I haven't confirmed this. You can buy a copy from BuyRite at www.buyrite1.com. The prices are a little high, but hey, it's an import, so quit whining. ;) From what I hear, Pokemon Stadium 2 is coming out in the US in March. **** If you have any questions that aren't answered in the FAQ, then I don't know the answer. If you ask me anything that IS in the FAQ, your question will be ignored or responded to in a less than friendly manner. And PLEASE - for the love of God - do NOT send me messages like: "how is call the page of the pokemon stadiumm to askk few questionn" because you will definately feel the sting. About my Japanese ----------------- I've only been studying Japanese for about 3 months, and am in no way claiming to be the end-all Japanese master. I'm doing this FAQ to enhance my Japanese studies and because my girlfriend is nuts about Pokemon, so it'll give her an excuse to play it constantly. Please keep in mind that just because I can translate single word attack names doesn't mean I can translate a whole novel for you, so please don't ask because it'll only lead to disappointment. The English names I provide are a very loose (and literal) approximation based on the translations I find with each attack name. For instance, かいりき, which is loosely translated as "Superhuman Strengh," seems to do nothing but hurl rocks, so I call it a "Rock Throw." DON'T contact me telling me what you think the name should be. Write your own FAQ. For viewing the Japanese characters, I recommend using the NJ Win program from NJ Star. You can get it at http://www.njstar.com. For printing them, I recommend the Kanji Kit '97 from Pacific Software Publishing. You can get it at http://www.pspinc.com. Menus ----- When negotiating the menus, often times, you'll see はい and いいえ as your choies. はい means yes, and is pronounced "High." If you've seen any of the "Karate Kid" movies, then you know how to say it. ;) いいえ means no, and is pronounced "eeeee-eh" with the "e" sound as in "bee." The "eh" sound is like the "e" in "bet." Main Menu ========= Left - Quick Battle ****************************************** Middle - Pokemon Stadium Quote: "Here is the Pokemon Stadium. This is where monster battles, study, mini games and other things are." Clockwise from top: * Stadium - Main Area of Battle. * GB - Play the GB game with the GB pack and GB Pokemon game. (Not Confirmed) * Free Battle - Battle against another player, or Team Battle. * Mini Games - Head to Mini Game island. * Winner's Mansion - Some kind of Trophy Room. * Research Laboratory - ???? * Gym Leader's Castle - Take on all the Gym Leaders. ******************************************* Right - Event Battle? ******************************************* Bottom - Options * Sound - Stereo/Monural * Announcer - On/Off * Clear Save Data - - "Is it OK if the 64 Pack save data is cleared?" - ?????????????? Gameplay -------- The actual gameplay is relatively simple. After picking your 6 Pokemon during the pre-battle sequence, you can then pick 3 of those 6. The A, B and C buttons correspond to your Pokemon, and the first button you press is the first Pokemon into battle. Once in battle, you have to option to attack, switch Pokemon, or pause. Pausing gives you the option to give up the match. Pressing "A" will put you into attack mode, and pressing "B" will put you into switch mode. If you change your mind, you can press "L" to get back to the three main choices. After choosing either Attack or Switch, you can hit "R" to bring up your choices. Pressing one of the buttons listed will either use that attack, or summon that Pokemon - whichever you chose to do. The factor that determines who attacks first is probably speed related, although i have yet to determine how to find out a particular Pokemon's speed. It's safe to say that a Starmie will take it's turn before an Onix or Dragonite, unless the Starmie is slowed down or something. I've discovered something interesting. The computer can use Pokemon that have different attacks than the default ones available to you, even if you're both the same level. This leads me to believe that if you have taught your Pokemon deifferent abilites on the Game Boy games, you can them import those Pokemon using the GB pack for use in this game. I don't have the GB pack or Japanese Pokemon for the Game Boy, so I can't verify this, but if someone out there can, I'd greatly appreciate it. I saw a Geodude (A Rock Pokemon) do some kind of Tidal Wave attack on me. Since rock Poekmon are weak against water, it makes no sense for a Geodude to have a water attack to throw at me. This leads me to believe that if the computer can customize their Pokemon, so can the Player. Now I just need to figure out how. I've also just discovered that the Pokemon may have different attacks when at different levels. This seems natural to me, but I now wonder why there are parts of the game where you can play with only level 50 Pokemon, or only level 25 or 30 Pokemon. I'm sure this lack of total understanding of the game comes with my lack of understanding of the Japanese language, so until then, I guess I'll keep trying to figure it out. The attacks in thes FAQ are the default ones that come in the game. I don't know if you can import new attacks found only in the GB game.

Drowzee - Press "A" when the pendilum is at the center. You fall asleep if you don't. It speeds up, making it harder to hit. The one who stays awake wins. Ekans - Ring around the Diglett.
