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.

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."

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.

(=========================================================)

This lets you know about the Pokemon you're going to use, so you don't have to learn the hard 
way: in battle!

Section 6 - Mini Games
----------------------

You can either play one at a time, or go to a tournament in which you set the number of games 
you have to win. 

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. Aim with the D-Pad, and use the analog stick to coil back by 
hitting "Down." The farther you push it, the more spring in your leap. The stick is VERY 
sensitive. The gold ones are worth 2. 

Lickitung - Eat the good food, avoid the bad stuff. Certain food is worth more points than 
others. 

Clefairy - "Simon Says" with the D-pad. 

Metapod - Harden before the boudlers hit you. Hardening takes up your energy, but getting hit 
takes much more. Whoever lasts the longest wins. 

Magikarp - Hit "A" to bounce. The longer you hold "A" the higher you bounce. HIt the counter 
the most number of times to win. 

Rattata - Tap "A" mutliple times to run. Press Up on the D-pad to leap over the walls. It's a 
race to the finish. 

Sandshrew - Hit "L" and "R" in fast sequence to dig. First to the bottom wins. 

Pikachu - Tap either "A" or "B" when the light is either Blue or Green, respectively.
