    ***UPDATES***
    
    ***INTRODUCTION***
    Welcome to the Pokemon Stadium 2 FAQ.  This FAQ is here to give you tips on how 
    to win the tournaments and quest mode.  Just a little side note: this is my 
    first FAQ; so don't kill me if this is a little off.  First off, let me explain 
    the controls.  If you're confused about which attack is which, here's how it 
    works: Your Pokemon's first attack is C^, second is C>, third is Cv, and fourth 
    is C<.  This is for anyone who gets confused about their Pokemon's moves.  Of 
    course, this FAQ is assuming you're playing with a GB adaptor and a Japanese 
    version :)  It also helps to have a basic knowledge of Pokemon.
    
    ***GAME AREA EXPLANATION***                              
    Here's a quick explanation of each area:
    After the confirmation screen, you will have 4 options. 
    Left option: Battle the computer (com from here on) or a friend in a quick 
    battle with random Pokemon.  
    Right option: Fight a friend with the Pokemon on your cartridges in one of the 
    tournaments. There's some sort of timer ticking in the background as you fight.  
    You need two GB adaptors for
    this.  I really don't know what's going on here, can someone explain it to me? 
    Bottom option: (the one without a picture) Leads to the options screen.  Here 
    you can change between Stereo and Mono sound (top option), turn the announcer on 
    or off (middle option), and erase the game's memory (bottom option).  
    Center option: leads to the main area, so on to that.
    Stadium in Center: Pokemon Tournaments.  You can enter Pokemon in 3-on-3 
    tournaments against the computer here.  These can get rather difficult, so don't 
    bother trying these with the in-game Pokemon :P  To see which Pokemon you can 
    use in a particular tournament, select the middle option after choosing a 
    tournament, then choose the one the cursor is already on.  The blue Pokemon are 
    the Pokemon you can use: the red are ones you cannot.
    
    Building in Upper-left Corner: the quest mode. 
    Here you battle in mini tournaments against the gym leaders, and then against 
    the elite four.  It's worth the trouble to win, you get a rare Pokemon such as 
    Squirtle or Kabuto every time you win:)
    
    Building to Left of Stadium: This is the research lab. 
    The computer on the left lets you exchange Pokemon with your computer (top 
    option), exchange items with your computer (second option), load your computer 
    boxes to the N64 cartridge and vice versa (third option) and.... something else 
    (bottom option), anyone know what that is?  The laptop lets you look at your 
    Pokedex in 3D, and the computer with the tubes sticking out the sides lets you 
    trade Pokemon with another GB pack.  The thing to the right of the trading 
    device lets you choose another game to look at in the lab if there's more than 
    one GB pack and cartridge.  Also, the Pokemon you win in the Quest Mode can be 
    transferred to your cartridge in
    the Lab.
    
    Building(s) Below Stadium: This is the mini game area. 
    Here you can play silly little mini games with the COM or other people. I'll 
    cover this in a later update.
    
    Building Below Research Lab: This is the trophy hall. 
    Statues of the Pokemon you've used to win the tournaments and quest mode will 
    appear here. Press A to see information on the Pokemon you're looking at.  You 
    can use L and R to scroll faster than using the control pad.  
    
    Giant Game Boy to the Right: This lets you play your GB game on the N64.
    To exit, press C^ and choose the middle option.  Not much else to say :P 
    
    Ring Below the GB: this is the free battle arena. 
    You can battle using the in-game Pokemon or the Pokemon on your game.  After 
    selecting who's battling, you can choose the battle area.  The top option is a 
    free-for all: the others follow the tournament regulations.  Then you choose 
    your Pokemon and battle.  Simple, isn't it? :)
    
    ***QUEST MODE***                                            
    This is the tips area for the quest mode.  Each trainer uses a set team of 
    Pokemon, and I'll be writing the teams here along with tips for beating them.  
    The main reason for this is to inform you on what the computer is using, so YOU 
    know what to use.  These might be a little off, so let me know if there's 
    anything wrong.  You can use any Pokemon here, and the COM's Pokemon will be 
    equal in level to your highest-level Pokemon.  Any
    suggestions are (usually) welcome.
    
    Brock's Team-Round 1
    Bug Catcher Team: Caterpie, Weedle, Kakuna, Metapod, Butterfree, Beedrill.
    This is simply laughable.  If you can't beat this guy, you shouldn't be playing 
    this yet :)  Just about anything will get you through this match.
    Brock's Team-Round 2
    Youngster Team: Bulbasaur, Ekans, Zubat, Oddish, Paras, Gloom.
    This guy is a little tougher, but he's still a pushover.  Fire or Psychic 
    Pokemon, or Pokemon that know those kind of moves, will win this one easily.
    Brock's Team-Round 3
    ????? (anybody know?) Team: Farfetch'd, Diglett, Pidgey , Dugtrio, Sandshrew, 
    Geodude.
    Like before, if you have the right moves or Pokemon, this will be over quick. 
    Ice and water types are your best bet.
    Brock's Team-Round 4                                                     
    Brock Team: Onix, Graveler, Cubone, Vulpix, Omanyte, Kabuto
    WATER! WATER! WATER!  I don't think I can make it much clearer than that ;)  
    Watch out though, the Omanyte and Kabuto sometimes use Agility, which makes 
    things a lot harder.
    
    Misty's Team-Round 1
    Fisherman Team: Squirtle, Poliwag, Magikarp (HA!), Wartortle, Seaking, 
    Tentacool.
    No matter what level they're at, most of this guy's team won't cause problems. A 
    good Electabuzz or Raichu can handle this easily.
    Misty's Team-Round 2
    ??? (HELP!) Team: Pidgey, Seadra, Kadabra, Voltorb, Diglett, Jigglypuff.
    As long as you have a Pokemon with good attack power, you shouldn't have any 
    problems.  If she uses the Kadabra, a physical attack or two will finish it.
    Misty's Team-Round 3
    Swimmer Team: Meowth, Goldeen, Mankey, Omanyte, Clefairy, Poliwhirl.
    Electric can handle this team, so you shouldn't have any problems.
    Misty's Team-Round 4                                                      
    Misty Team: Starmie, Horsea, Psyduck, Blastoise, Staryu, Seel.
    Now this is a little tougher.  Watch out for the Starmie, it has a nasty habit 
    of using Thunder Wave.  The Blastoise could cause problems as well.  But except 
    for that, you should win this one fairly easily if you're using electric types.
    
    That's it for this time, more on the next update.
    
    ***ARENA TOURNAMENTS***                           
    Here's where I am going to list the Pokemon the COM uses in the tournaments.  
    Now I will explain the rules for each tournament.  In the 15-20 tournament, the 
    total sum of your Pokemon's levels cannot exceed 60. This explains why you can't 
    have more than one L.20 Pokemon, because 20 + 15 + 15 = 60.  In the L.50-55 
    tournament, the total is 155, and in the L.25-30 tournament, the total is 80. in 
    the L.100, 50, and 30 tournaments, all of your Pokemon can be at the max level 
    allowed by that tournament.
    
    First, I'm going to cover the L.15-20 tournament.  
    Here's how this tournament works:
    You can have one Pokemon at L.20 and two L.15 Pokemon, or you can have Pokemon 
    of varying levels (ex. 3 L.16, 3 L.17).  Due to the fact that this is going to 
    take forever to find out and type, I've decided to simply list the types that 
    will make winning each particular battle a whole lot easier.    
    
    Round 1: Nidorina, Ekans, Venonat, Butterfree, Kakuna, Paras.
    Suggested Types: Psychic, electric.
    Round 2: Pidgeotto, Farfetch'd, Bellsprout, Ivysaur, Zubat, Geodude.
    Suggested Types: Psychic, Electric, Water.
    Round 3: Poliwhirl, Wartortle, Magikarp, Slowpoke, Staryu, Nidorino
    Suggested Types: Electric, Psychic.
    Round 4: Ninetales, Growlithe, Sandshrew, Drowzee, Charmeleon, Vulpix.
    Suggested Types: Water, Normal.
    Round 5: Voltorb, Magnemite, Porygon, Mankey, Kingler (?), Raichu.
    Suggested Types: Electric, Psychic, Rock/Ground.
    Round 6: Rhyhorn (L.20), Wigglytuff, Kadabra, Machop, Seadra, Gastly.
    Suggested Types: Water, Electric, Psychic, Normal.
    Round 7: Gyarados, Mr. Mime, Arcanine, Tentacruel (?), Dewgong, Meowth.
    Suggested Types: Electric, Normal, Water.
    Round 8: Dragonair, Slowbro, Clefable, Tentacool, Raticate, Golduck.
    Suggested Types: Ice, Electric.
    
    The next one is the L.25-30 tournament.  The rules are the same as the L.15-20 
    tournament.
    
    Round 1: Caterpie, Weedle, Paras, Oddish, Bellsprout, Exeggcute
    Suggested Types: Fire.
    Round 2: Pidgey, Rattata, Ditto, Bulbasaur, Ekans. Zubat.
    Suggested Types: Psychic, Fire.
    Round 3: Geodude, Gastly, Voltorb, Shellder, Koffing, Exeggcute.
    Suggested Types: Water, Electric, Fire, Psychic.
    Round 4: Krabby, Horsea, Magikarp, Machop, Goldeen, Spearow.
    Suggested Types: Electric, Psychic.
    Round 5: Cubone, Growlithe, Meowth, Abra, Poliwag, Jigglypuff.
    Suggested Types: Water, Electric, Normal.
    Round 6: Diglett, Magnemite, Farfetch'd, Zubat, Charmander, Squirtle.
    Suggested Types: Water, Electric, Psychic.

    Suggested Types: Water, Electric, Ground.
    Round 8: Nidoran M, Nidoran F, Dratini, Sandshrew, Psyduck, Omanyte.
    Suggested Types: Psychic, Ice, Electric.
    
    Next is the L.1-30 tournament.  BTW, the L.1-30 and the L.50-55 tournaments are 
    both based on the tournaments in Pokemon stadium.  They use the same arena, same 
    music, and same POKEMON as the original.
    
    Round 1: Gengar, Golem, Exeggutor, Electrode, Ditto, Dugtrio.
    Suggested Types: Psychic, Ice.
    Round 2: Gyarados, Starmie, Alakazam, Chansey, Magneton, Lapras.
    Suggested Types: Electric, Normal.

    Suggested Types: Rock/Ground, Ice, Electric, Normal.
    
    And next up is the L.50-55 tournament.  The rules are explained above.

    Vaporeon, Articuno, Kangaskhan.
    Suggested Types: Electric.

    And next is the L.1-100 tournament.  This is split up into 4 different 
    tournaments, so I'll cover each seperately. 
    
    First is the poke-ball division:

    ***MEWTWO BATTLE***                                     
    That's right, after you win all 12 tournaments, a 13th tournament opens up, 
    where you fight Mewtwo!  He knows Psychic, Blizzard, Thunderbolt, and Rest.  The 
    best strategy is to wail on him with Physical attacks from another Mewtwo.  When 
    he's down to about 100 HP, hit him with Hyper Beam or some other attack that 
    will drain the rest of his HP.  Otherwise he'll use Rest
    and Recover all his energy :(  The Hard mode Mewtwo is basically the same, 
    except he's a bit stronger and knows Amnesia instead of Thunderbolt.  After you 
    defeat him, you'll see the credits.  Now you have you have new, harder 
    tournaments to win.  Good luck, you'll need it ;)
    
    ***QUEST MODE (HARD)***                               
    This update is pretty much completed.  I'll create walkthroughs for the hard 
    tournaments
    after I finish the normal walkthroughs.
    
    ***ARENA TOURNAMENTS (HARD)***              
    See the note for the quest mode :P
    
    ***GAMESHARK CODES***                                
    For all you cheaters out there, here's some Gameshark codes for Pokemon Stadium 
    2.
    800B4BF3 FFFF                                                  
    This is a fairly crude infinite HP code.  Your Pokemon will still take damage, 
    but after it's defeated, send out someone else, then you can call the Pokemon 
    that was killed back into battle! This only affects the first Pokemon you send 
    out.
    
    Playing this game usually involves forming teams on your GB game.  Here's the 
    codes I've made for the Japanese versions of Pokemon:     
    0199CBD2 + 0199CCD2 + 0199CDD2= infinite money
    
    01??63CF-1st slot
    01??64CF-2nd slot
    01??65CF-3rd slot
    01??66CF-4th slot                                               
    Buy anything in store
    
    01??BFCF-select Pokemon to fight/capture
    01??ECD0-select level of Pokemon to fight/capture
    
    01034FD1-attack
    010351D1-defense
    010353D1-speed
    010355D1-special                                                
    Stats modifiers
    
    01??33D1-1st slot
    01??34D1-2nd slot
    01??35D1-3rd slot
    01??36D1-4th slot                                                
    Skills Modifiers
    
    01??4CD1-level modifier
    
    Most of the digits for the ??s can be found at various sites across the net.  
    The stats, skills, and level modifiers only affect the Pokemon in the first 
    slot. BTW, the stats and level modifiers WILL NOT work with Pokemon stadium 2, 
    so don't try it.
    
    ***OTHER STUFF***

    Here's a few tidbits of information: If you just want to battle with a certain 
    number of Pokemon in Quest Mode, Mewtwo Battle, or Free Battle instead of 6, 
    just press START after selecting your Pokemon.  After you access the hard mode, 
    you can press C> at the main menu to switch between the normal menus and the 
    hard menus.
