5)Strategy and Battle Tips 

Well, I have finally gotten a strategy section back up, since yesterday. My goal here
is to keep remind of the little things that are over looked in Pokemon Stadium. Look
below to see what has been added.

When you are choosing or training Pokemon to use in the Stadium, remember that Pokemon
aren't limited to attacks of their own type. For example, I used a rental Starmie to 
fight in the Pika Cup and this Pokemon knew Thunder. This was really handy because
when I got to the point when I battle a lot of water-type Pokemon, it was really simple
to win because the opponent was using many water-type attacks such as SURF, but it wasn't
effective against Starmie and Starmie was damaging the opponent with Thunder. It was 
really effective against the water-type and psychic-type Slowpoke and Slowbro. Since this
Pokemon uses all water and psychic attacks most of the time. So when you are training 
Pokemon on your Game Boy, be sure to have it well equipped with some attacks out of its 
type. If you are picking Rental Pokemon then try to find some Pokemon that have these 
abilities out of its type. It is a very important aspect to Pokemon.

In my opinion, you should always check for speed when picking Pokemon. I was playing in 
the Poke Cup and I discovered that even Pokemon that have disadvantages over other types 
still can get a win, if they are used carefully. The main reason was because they had
a speed advantage over my Pokemon and they were able to get many regular attacks. These 
attacks also included many critical hits. The various electric-type Pokemon are always
good Pokemon because they have fast speeds. Flying and Water types come in close with
these guys as well. When you are picking Pokemon be sure to look for ones that have high
speed. Even though you have a disadvantage, if you can always get the first hit then you 
can cause some serious damage. For example, if you were playing with a Pidgey and your 
opponent had an Alakazam and the Alakazam was on its last little bit of HP then you could 
always use Quick Attack to get the upper edge and win because Quick Attack always hits 
first. Now, if Quick Attack wasn't available then your best bet is to switch to the 
Pokemon with the highest speed. If you are using a Pokemon that can Paralyze the opponent,
then use it because Paralyze cuts the opponents speed so it should be able to give you 
an advantage, plus it will sometimes make your opponent be immobile for a turn and that
might be all that you need to get the upper wing at beating your opponent. So next time 
you are picking Pokemon, look for one with a lot speed, but see if you can also find one 
with high attack or special while you are at it.  

Okay, I have looked at Pokemon Stadium a little more and I have discovered a little bit 
more on ratings. Attack and Defense should go together when you are looking Pokemon to
pick and/or train. Usually when you see a Pokemon with a high attack, it will usually
come with a high defense. This is handy because while you are throwing out strong attacks 
or lowering the opponents ratings then you have the extra defense you need to stay up. An 
example of this Pokemon could be Dragonite. This Pokemon has a very high defense and isn't
effected by fire,water,electric,and grass attacks, but can be easily knocked down with ice 
attacks. You could use a Dragonite with Thunderwave to Paralyze the opponent, then you 
could finish the opponent of with a hyper beam, if it has a low defense. So be sure to 
look at the advantages of high attack and defense. The ratings of an attack is just as 
important as its type. You can use a flying attack on a grass-type and still won't cause
the right amount of damage just because the Pokemon doesn't have a high attack or 
sometimes it can be because the opponent has a high defense. Remember this when playing 
the Game Boy Pokemon especially.

I know you have probably had a little bit of trouble combating those pesky electrict-type 
Pokemon, so with the battle experience that I have had I will give you a little bit of 
advice. The electric-types in Pokemon Stadium are probably among the most annoying types 
to have and if you have one and know how to use them, they can be very effective, but for 
now I will explain how to battle them. The electic-types in the game always end up having 
something special that gives them advantages over types that are suppose to have an 
advantage over them. Raichu is among some of these Pokemon. I was battling one in the Poke 
Cup and I lost due to the Raichu having a body-slam attack that Paralzyed most of my 
Pokemon and my Pokemon wouldn't move most the time. Plus the Raichu was very fast. I was 
able to over come the Pokemon by using my own Pikachu that actually had a speed advantage 
over it. I paralyzed it first then took the chance of switching to one of my Pokemon with 
a strong attack rating and took it out. Most of the other electric-types aren't that much 
of a problem. Your real worry will be Raichu, but the others you can easily get around. 
Just remember that most of the electric-types will always have a speed advantage. Your 
best bet will always be to cut their speed down to size first before they can kick in with 
one of their strong electric attacks. Even rock-types can fall to some electric-types due 
to some of them having Paralyzing attacks such as Body Slam. A Psychic-type Pokemon always 
will come handy as well. Your best bet: Alakazam or the deadly Mewtwo. So good luck with 
you journey of becoming a Pokemon Master

This was sent by Mr.Cactus:

This Mew is the hardest of all the enemy Pokemon out there.  Mew's moves are Thunder Wave, 
Tri Attack, Psychic, and Softboiled.  This is a good strategy for beating him.  You should 
have a Gyarados with Thunderbolt, Blizzard, Hydro Pump, and Hyper Beam.  Also a Fast 
Ground Type like Dugtrio would be helpful.  Lastly have an Exeggutor with Solarbeam, 
Psychic, Sleep Powder, and Explosion or another powerful Normal Type Attack.  Next, send 
out Gyarados 1st.  Use Thunderbolt on Starmie, and Hydro Pump on Rhydon and Tauros.  If 
Exeggutor is sent out hit him with Blizzard.  You may freeze him.  If so good.  If not he 
will use Psychic.  Now switch to another Pokemon.  He usually uses Explosion.  When Mew is 
sent out switch to Exeggutor or Dugtrio.  Be careful though.  You do not want Exeggutor to 
become paralyzed.  Use Sleep Powder on Mew.  Put it to Sleep, and choose either Gyarados 
or Dugtrio.  Use attacks on Mew until he wakes up.  Repeat putting him to sleep, and 
switching.  If Mew and Exeggutor are low on health you may want to use Explosion to take 
Mew out.  After that finish off the other Pokemon.

This was also sent by Mr.Cactus

The Snorlax in the Round 2 Prime Cup is one of the worst Pokemon besides Mew.  First send 
out a Pokemon that knows Sleep Powder (Make this your first Pokemon because he is usually 
sent out first).  Put Snorlax to Sleep, and then hit him with attacks until he wakes up.  
When he wakes up, put him back to Sleep.  Unless you are Parylized you should get the 
first attack.  This Snorlax has Rest, Body Slam, Earthquake, and Self Destruct.  I 
reccomend using an Exeggutor with Psychic, Sleep Powder, Solarbeam, and any other attack, 
or a Ghost type.  This way you can have some strong attacks for him and the other Pokemon.  
If you choose a Ghost type use Hypnosis to put him to Sleep or use Confuse Ray to Confuse 
him.  Also do ot use Solarbeam on him at all.  If he wakes up while you are charging 
energy you wll be stuck using Solarbeam.  Beware of Body Slam.  He uses this the most, and 
it Parilyzes most Pokemon pretty easily.  He rarely uses Self Destruct though.

Psychic-type Pokemon are among the most powerful because they all have high special and 
they can throw out many devastating attacks. In your hands, they will give a good victory 
if you use them right. In the opponents hands could mean trouble. I have had a lot of 
psychic Pokemon problems. I lost the finals of the master ball tournament when I was about 
to beat the Poke Cup. A Kadabra and Alakazam was the cause of this defeat. You should 
always have at least one Pokemon that can defeat psychics. In the past, they said that 
ghosts could beat the psychic-types, but the ghost's poison properties give it a 
disadvantage. So there is only one type that can defeat them easily.. Bugs.  This doesn't 
mean that you have to have a Bug-type Pokemon. Plus most Bugs that bug-attacks are also 
poison properties(Beedrill). You want the Pokemon that has the most reliable speed and has 
a bug attack… Jolteon. Some people really over-look this Pokemon when they are having 
trouble with psychics. When you are battling sabrina or any type of psychic opponent, 
Jolteon is your best friend. This is because he knows the handy Pin Missle attack and has 
top notch speed. But not everyone will want to use Jolteon or maybe you don't have one, so 
if you don't have one, you have to find a good physical opponent with an good amount of 
special. Golem and other rocks-types have some of the best strength to be able to knock 
out psychics but their low special and slow speed make psychics make quick work out of 
them. You should consider maybe another psychic-type which has a good physical attack, 
such as Body Slam, Take Down, or Double-Edge. Slowbro is a good Pokemon for this because 
it can absorb most of the psychic damage without getting severely hurt because it is a 
psychic type as well and can nail the opponent with a good physical attack. Don't attempt 
to use fighting-types and everyone knows why. Raichu is fairly good if it knows Body Slam 
because will more than likely get the first hit(it depends). You might paralyze the 
opponent as well give you a bigger advantage. So be sure to watch yourself combating the 
psychics. If you are still having problems beating Sabrina or any psychic opponent, let me 
know and I will try to help you out a little bit more as I can. Just remember that we all 
learn something new and I still have a lot to learn on combating all types of Pokemon but 
as I learn them, I will let everyone know.




-----------------------------------------------------

6) Pokemon Teams

This section is for teams of Pokemon that have been effective in the Stadium mode, but
they might come in handy also when you head on over to the Gym Leader Castle. I will also 
describe how these teams are effective in the game and what they should have.

Here is an all around kind of team. They should be able to battle most types of 
Pokemon if you use the right strategy:

Charizard - Strong Fire-Type: Should have at least Fire Blast and Fire spin and among 
others.

Weepinbell - Grass-type that can use the handy combination of poison and wrap.

Parasect - Another good grass-type: This Pokemon is effective because it can put 
others to sleep with its strong Spore attack then finish it off with Solarbeam or
you can switch to a Pokemon that has an advantage and can finish it off.

Articuno - Best all around ice-type: With Ice Beam or Blizzard to freeze up most 
opponents, its very fast speed, and using Sky Attack to help combat the Psychic-types,
this is a Pokemon to always include in your team. Beware of electricity and fire.

Kadabra - Good psychic-type: I picked him over Alakazam because for those who don't use
the Game Boy for your Pokemon, you can have a good psychic-type that uses Psychic, plus
can recover most of its energy with its Recover.

Starmie - One the best water-types: Blastoise isn't as fast as Starmie. That is why 
Starmie should be used. Make sure that it has Surf and Harden. You can use Recover 
also if you want to help keep it in battle. 



This team was sent by Mew1515596. This team is best Pokemon to use in fighting in the 
Prime Cup:

Mewtwo - its attacks should include: physic,recover,confusion

Mew -

Pikachu -

Charizard -

Blastoise - attacks should include: hydro pump,surf,bubblebeam,strength

Venusaur- attacks should include at least solarbeam. 


Here is another team that is useful in the Pika Cup only, but you have to be strategic
with these Pokemon:

Pikachu - Electric-type: It is mainly here for its speed and its good variety of attacks.
Use should use whenever there are difficult water opponents. If you are still having 
trouble then try a Raichu.

Tentacruel - A handy poison and water type Pokemon. It has fair speed. It is mainly here
to act as a back-up against some of the other water type attacks. This is true because
it can learn some grass-type attacks.

Starmie - The best water type: Just like above, it is a lot faster than the other water
Pokemon. If you are training it from the Game Boy Pokemon, then give it Surf and Recover.
You can use harden to help touch up on the surface, but would be better to use other
good attacks such as Substitute.

Abra/Kadabra - These are handy psychics. Use them in almost every battle because they have
really good special attacks and will really kicks tail if you use it wisely. Abra is the
regualr Pokemon that should be used, but if you have trouble then try to work up to use
Kadabra.

Gastly - A ghost Pokemon. It is here for one reason: It can't be hurt by most physical 
attacks, which is good for you. In the mean time you can knock your opponent out with
some of its attacks. Haunter is useful if you are having trouble. It is best to raise
this Pokemon up with your Game Boy Pokemon.

Geodude - A ground and rock type. It is here to defend against those super fast electric 
Pokemon. The electric-tpyes are super fast against most others and should be taken down 
carefully. Geodude is your best bet in the Pika Cup because it is immune to most electric 
attacks. Its high defense will also help you get around some of the fire-types as well.


Here is a team of Pokemon that will really help you out in the Petit Cup, try them out and 
see how effective they are:

Charmander - This fire type will help you with the bug-type Pokemon at the beginning. It 
has the speed and the power to over come the enemy. If it is a rental Pokemon then it 
should have the Fire-Blast move, if not thats okay any fire-type attack is effective with 
Charmander.

Squirtle - Your standard water-type. He will be very useful against all of your opponents. 
He has the speed to get through most Pokemon in the Petit Cup. The rock and ground types 
are watch really make this Pokemon a winner because with Bubblebeam and its fast speed, 
you can cause some serious damage.

Pikachu - He is here to battle all water types and maybe a few flying types. His speed is 
what makes him the winner over most electric types in the Petit Cup. He should know 
Thunderwave and Thunderbolt or Thunder. He should always be at the top of your list at 
certain points because you can use him to Paralyze the opponent and then cause a certain 
amount of damage before you opponent end up making it faint.

Sandshrew - This ground-type Pokemon is one of my favorite Pokemon. He has the average 
speed and knocks down most rock-types, electric-types, and fire-types with ease. He will 
also be able to easily knock down the notorious Gastly if you encounter it during the Cup.

Oddish - Good Plant type. You should always have a good well rounded grass type Pokemon to 
cause all some damage to the opponent with its sleep powered and poison attacks. This 
Pokemon's defense isn't really high, so if you wish to have a bit more defense, goto 
Bulbasaur instead, but I put Oddish over Bulbasaur because I think that Oddish's movelist 
as a Rental Pokemon is better.

Machop - Your fighting-type Pokemon. It is here for its brute strength and good defense. I 
have used it for the various normal-type Pokemon. He usually can get the job done against 
opponents with low defense. He will come in handy, you just need to find the situation 
that requires him. He should at least have Karate Chop and Low Kick. 

Here is the team that one the Pika Cup tournament for me:

Raichu - Your electic-type Pokemon. He is here to battle your water-types and to paralyze 
the opponents that give you a hard time. His speed is what makes him special and comes in 
handy in the Finals of the tournament.

Kadabra - This Pokemon is your all around Pokemon. He should be able to down almost any 
other type. He was the Pokemon that won the Tournament for me by downing the opponents
Dragonair and Clefable. So make sure you use his psychic ablilties to your advantage.

Ivysaur - He is really just here for the back up. You could really go on well without it. 
If you have a better Pokemon for back up, use it instead of this. I picked him because he 
would be a back up for Raichu against some of those water-types.

Vulpix - Your fire-type Pokemon. I would have choosen Charmander or Charmeleon, but when I 
look at the speed ratings, this Pokemon had a faster speed. If he is a rental Pokemon then 
he should have the Fire-Blast technique or the Flamethrower.

Rhyhorn - Your Rock-Type Pokemon. I picked him for the high defense, but any other rock-
type should do the trick. Just make sure his is armed with Earthquake to really cause some
major damage. He also contributed to the final battle when he attempted down the Dragonair 
at the end.

Starmie - Water-type with speed and special all in one. This pokemon can even take 
physical attacks quite well. I love this Pokemon also because he can learn Thunder and 
usually has it when you pick it as a Rental Pokemon. He is good for combating the water-
types because while the opponent is throwing water-type attacks and not causing so much
damage, you can knock them out cold with the Thudner attack.


This Pokemon Team was sent by Shuriken Zero, it is a good team to use in the Petit Cup:

Gengar - His most used Pokemon

Bulbasaur - 

Charmander -

Farfetch'd - This Pokemon was very own Pokemon.

Victreebel - Very fast

Raichu - Very fast

Gyarados - Very fast

This teams was sent by Psyduck54:

This team was sent by Silverbolt7T:

Charizard - Attacks -  Fire blast, flamethrower, earthquake,slash
Articuno - attacks - ice beam, fly, blizzard, sky attack
Mewtwo - attacks - psychic, barrier, recover, blizzard or thunder(bolt)
Dragonite - attacks - blizzard, fireblast, hyper beam,thunder(bolt)
Exeggutor - attacks - sleep powder, egg bomb, psychic,solarbeam
Gyarados - attacks -thunder(bolt), blizzard, hyperbeam, hydro pump

Here are some team tips thanks to Earthq3846:

Hypno- My favorite Pokemon, EVER.  Has Psychic, Toxic, Flash, and Hypnosis.  It's speed 
isn't good, but that's because I haven't experminted with the drugs yet :-D

Omastar- I think Rock and Water is a GREAT combination.  He's got blizzard, Hydro Pump, 
Surf, and Spike Cannon.  Too bad his attack and speed are a bit low, but since he is not 
extremely weak to many attacks, and resists physical attacks well, I will probably lead 
him off first when I get the game.

INTERCHANGEABLE TWO (depends on situation and difficulty of fights).
Chansey- It's HP and special are enormous!!!! It's speed is Ok, and even good if I boost 
it with Carbos. Since its defense and attack are so low, and it takes 100 hp of damage 
from minor attacks, I equipped it with Counter.  If anyone tries a major attack on me, and 
Chansey survives without flinching, then its practically guaranteed to make the other 
Pokemon.  To allow it to recover, I equipped it with Softboiled, and kept Sing on it in 
case I leave out Hypno.  Also, there is Metronome, just for variety.  

or, if I'm in the mood for a variety Pokemon....
Hitmonchan- Sure, its special is crappy, but everything else is GREAT, especially attack 
:-D.  It's equipped with Submission (fighting types need fighting moves!!)   Thunder Punch 
for Paralysis, Ice Punch for freezing the pesky Psychics, and a Hyper Beam that took me 
FOREVER to win in the Game Corner (I play my games without a gameshark.)

And another set of interchangables, depending on if I'm in the mood for obnoxious cute 
things or scary things that go boom.
Pikachu (I can't evolve it, and I want it to talk.)  The only thing going bad for it is 
its defense.  It's got Thunder, Thunderbolt (if I run out of Thunder) Pay Day to bring in 
the money on Game Boy, and Mimic if I run into something with "Recover."
If I prefer something scarier, I opt for 
Electrode.  It's pretty well-rounded, and I boosted it with as many attack and defense 
raising vitamins as I could afford (and I played this game for ten hours trying to get 
enough money.)  It's got Explosion if I'm in the mood to kill, Thunderbolt, Flash (because 
I like laughing at people who miss.) and Light Screen to block out Psychic damage.

Ninetales- My second favorite Pokemon.  My firestarter has good everything, except attack, 
which was easily countered with a few vitamins.  It's got Fire Blast, Fire Spin, Confuse 
Ray, and Swift.  

And my favorite flying one, Articuno.  Everything is great about it, but its level is too 
high for the tournament :-(  Outfitted with the standard stuff, except for one thing.    
Ice Beam, Blizzard, Fly, and Hyper Beam.  

That's just one of my teams I will use when I buy the game.  I have another, better group 
on Red (due to the Missingno. Cheat) but I prefer not to bash you over the head with that 
one.

7) Wonders of the Gym Leader Castle

The Gym leader Castle mode is one of the hardest modes to complete in Pokemon Stadium and 
you should always develop a good strategy. In this mode you will battle all the Gym 
Leaders from the Pokemon Game Boy game. This includes the Elite Four and your Rival. Each 
Gym Leader has three people under their wing which stands in your way of facing off 
against them. I will mention what you need to beat the different Gyms Leaders.

Brock - Use a strong combination of water Pokemon for him. His underlings will use Bugs 
and other little types of Pokemon. Bring a psychic-type Pokemon for you to KO their with a 
little bit of ease.

Misty - Use Electric or Grass Pokemon to get the advantage over her. Her underlings have 
many types so just pick in a matter of taste.

Surge - Use Pikachu or Raichu with Quick Attack to battle Lt. Surge. Use the quick attack
mainly on his Raichu though. If you use a rock-type, then he will more than likely
use SURF on you. Thank you ant330 for submitting this tip. If you still have trouble with 
Surge, use a FAST ground-type and make sure it knows dig to help it out because those 
raichu and pikachu may deploy an unexpected SURF on you.

Erika - Use some strong fire-pokemon. If you don't have anything of those types then use 
some psychic or flying-type Pokemon to get the advantage.

Koga - Well some psychic and ground Pokemon will come handy the whole trip.

Sabrina - A Jolteon with Pin Missle and a Beedrill with Twinneedle is what I used to bring 
down most of her Pokemon.

Blaine - Use some water Pokemon for him, but use a well rounded team of psychic and 
fighting for his underlings.

Giovanni - Use some grass and flying types to get the advantage through the hole Gym.

Elite Four - Use Mewtwo to win. If not available use Vaporeon,Zapdos,Alakazam,and along 
with a few other Pokemon of your choice to get the wind against all of them.

Rival - You must use a very well-rounded team. Mewtwo will get the win though if 
available.

?????? - As I have heard is that beyond the credits there is another opponent that you 
must beat. I have had word that this special level 100 Pokemon Mewtwo so be ready for 
anything. Use Freeze to get around it.
-----------------------------------------------------------

8) Stadiuim

This mode is the heart of the game. You will be able to compete in various cups in the 
game. There is no specific strategy for none of the cups. So I will explain what the 
various cups are:

Petit Cup - This is a cup where all the cute Pokemon are able to battle each other. The 
combination of the levels of the Pokemon cannot go higher than 80. Mew is not allowed to 
participate. The Pokemon levels can be between levels 25-30.

Pika Cup - This is where the weaker Pokemon can fight. Mew can't attend this fight and 
there is no tips here. Strategy is the key here, nothing else. The Pokemon can only be 
between levels 15-20 and the combination can't be higher than 50.

Poke Cup - This the offical Pokemon League tournament. The levels are between levels 50-55
and the Pokemon can't exceed a combination of 155. Mew can't attend. This is a very 
difficult tournament.

Prime Cup - This is difficult. This is a hardcore match where anything goes. Mew can 
attend this very electric match up. There is no level limit so go here when you are ready 
to kick some serious Pokemon behind.


I have given it some thought and have decided to attempt to give you some tips on getting
through the Pika Cup of the game. So take a look at the following tips below:

Your best bet of winning the Pika Cup in the Stadium mode is to just simply raise up some
well rounded Pokemon from your Game Boy. This is the only effective way of guarantee a win
because your Pokemon that you raise on your own have a better chance of winning than those
that the game has, this is true because you know what the Pokemon can do and you can 
adjust to meet your needs as well. My best bet is trying to use a combination of 
Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Pikachu, Geodude, and Mankey. These Pokemon will give you
an a very well rounded team for the beginning part and are every well-rounded. You just 
need to adjust them to where you can battle your opponent effectively. I got these Pokemon
from using the Yellow version of Pokemon. If you don't have the yellow version of Pokemon, 
then you should try to find some good substitutes for the two starter Pokemon that you 
didn't get.

9) Tips and Tricks


Okay, this has finally been cleared up: to get the Doduo mode which you use to speed
up the Pokemon Game Boy game, you have to beat the POKE CUP on Master Ball to get this
Mode. Thank you JoshuaToy for submitting this. Thank you also SSJvegitaX4.

You can get hard mode by beating the Gym Leader Castle and all cups on Master Ball. If
you get this mode you can rent MEW. You will fight a level 100 Mewtwo when you beat Gym 
Leader Castle and the cups on Master Ball to get hard mode. Thank you again SSJvegitaX4
and mlmorris for submitting these tips.

Depending on the name of the Pokemon, color will be different. Suppose a Golbat was 
named Golbact3, then it could be a deep blue shade.

Dodrio mode is a mode that lets you play your Game Boy Pokemon at x3 its normals game
play speed. You can achieve this by beating both the Poke Cup and Prime Cups on the master 
ball level. Thanks X-Calibur, JJ32285, and The Watcher7 for submitting these corrections 
to me.

If you register all 151 Pokemon in the the hall of fame, you get a special amnesia psyduck 
which will come in handy as you battle. Thanks evenci for this one. Thank you 
Paulman5@bellsouth.net also for giving me these tips.

Surfing Pikachu is available to use in the Yellow version. It can be download to the game, 
but it can be found somewhere in the "hard mode" of the game. Thanks Evenci for this one 
too. You acheieve it by getting to the master cup of the prime cup level and you can't use 
rental pokemon with this one nor can you use any contiunes. Remember that it can't be a 
rental Pikachu that you use this trick with. 

You can change the name of Mewtwo to twomew to get him to turn the color blue. 
Thank you Mew1515596 for sending this code.


Here are some nicknames submitted by Shuriken Zero to change the colors of some various 
Pokemon:

Mewtwo with darker purple hues: Orochi
Greenish Pikachu: Anemo
Dark Red Charizard: Inferno
Orange Charizard: Ganon
Greenish Meowth: Goten or Gohan (wasn't sure which one)

These were sent by THOTHmiddel on color:

depending on you'r ID number and name, color nick name codes work diffrently, but some 
work no matter what those are.

1. make lowercase of orignal name

2.reversing names (like TWOMEW)

3. useing simuler nicknames (MUK renamed YUK makes a green tounged muk)

4. useing a nickname that is very far off from the orginal name (MEW renamed transport 
made it purple colored instead of pinkish)

THOTHmiddel also sent this tip:

thats all I know for color, but thairs also secret pictures if you beat R-2 mode after 
beating the 6 vs. 1 battle of MEWTWO, go to gallery then go to print, then hold R and L, 
supposedly it will change to BONUS

X-Calibur sent this tip on how to get all 150 pokemon into the hall of fame easily:

just go into gym leader castle with a mewtwo, that has blizzard, psychic, recover, and 
either barrier or thunder and bring in 5 other pokemon of your choice that u wish to be 
regestered.  mewtwo should be in the front line and have him slaughter every pokemon the 
elite four and gary has.
beating them should be easy, use blizzard on lance's dragonair if he has one and if u have 
thunder use them on lorlei and lance's pokemon for quick finishes.  for the others, 
psychic them to death!!!!!!!
u should be able to regester all 151 in no time if your able to just use a mewtwo to beat 
them all.

KRaZY dUvA has confirmed that you can also beat the PRIME CUP first instead of the POKE 
CUP to received the doduo mode.

PkMnWatcherTaily sent this wonderful tip:

To miss any pokemon's attack, press C up, C right, Z all at the same time right after the 
defending pokemon does it's attack, but before the camera angle changes to your pokemon.

Dom Likes Pork sent this wonderful trick:

If Your Opponent's pokemon uses wrap, fire spin, or another repeating attack, it can get 
very annoying.  But if you switch your pokemon and the attack would have continued, it 
doesn't, and your opponent does not get the free hit they normally get when you switch.

Kids Club: Hyper CPU Difficulty 
To unlock this hidden difficulty setting, select a single-player game
against three CPU-controlled opponents. You need to win the "Who's the
Best?" challenge five times in a row on HARD difficulty. This will open up
the new HYPER difficulty setting for the CPU players

Talking Pikachu 
For a talking Pikachu, you need to upload one from Pokemon Yellow. Rental, Red, and Blue 
versions will just be silent.

Here are some more colors from Silverbolt7T:

Multicolored pokemon
Tyrannamon - Redder Charizard
Myotismon - Blue Mewtwo
Birdamon,Seadramon-dark blue articuno and gyarados
Note:ALL letters capitalized

One more things from Silverbolt7T:

Helpful hint: According to my findings, Mew isnt stronger than Mewtwo. Apparently Mewtwo 
is stronger in every way, but speed, and the Mew can learn ALL technique.
