***About the Guide***
=====================

This is a guide for the mini-games found within Pokemon Stadium 2 for the
Nintendo 64. The majority of these games are quite fun, and some are pretty
challenging. There are also ways you can win bonuses to your Game Boy game
using mini-games.

If you are stuck as to how to beat a game, all the information about it is
right here. Enjoy!

==========================
***Mini-Game Strategies***
==========================

Here are strategies for each of the mini-games available in Pokemon Stadium 2.

***

Gutsy Golbat

Tap the A Button repeatedly to go up. Use the Control Stick to move from side
to side. Find and gain hearts throughout the cave. The Golbat with the most 
hearts at the end of the level wins. 

* Tip: You can attack another Golbat by bumping it hard. Your hearts will 
scatter if you hit a Magnemite or get hit hard by an opponent attack. 

***

Topsy Turvy

Use the Control Stick to strike the opponent. Knock your opponent out of the 
ring five times to win. Press the A Button to use RAPID SPIN. Use this move to
knock your opponent out of the ring. 

* Tip: This is a fairly easy game against the computer, but can be challenging 
against others. Stay near the center of the ring and only move to the edges to
bump someone else out. 

***

Clear Cut Challenge

Press the A Button to cut falling logs at the white line. There are five logs 
in all. Time your cuts--cutting above the white line will cost you points. The 
one with the highest total score wins. 

* Tip: This challenge is all about timing. Take some time to practice it before 
trying it out in a Mini-game Champion battle. If you can cut the log directly 
on the white line, you will score a pat 20 points, putting you a good deal 
ahead of the competition. If you can't get right on the line, though, try to 
get under it. Cutting over the line will make you lose points. 

***

Furret's Frolic

Press the Control Pad to move into the grass. Release it to move back to the 
center. Press the A Button to shoot the ball. Get the most points to win.
Red Pokeball= 1 point
Blue and Red Pokeball= 2 points
Gold and Black Pokeball= 3 points
Purple and Red Pokeball= 5 points 

* Tip: This is one of the hardest mini-games in Stadium 2, mainly because it is 
so confusing. The general goal is to shoot the Pokeballs into your opponent's 
goals. The bigger the ball, the bigger the score. Concentrate on the big 
balls late in the game--they are your quickest way to victory. 

***

Barrier Ball

Use the Control Stick to move and hit the ball back. Press the A Button to hit 
a smash. Earn a point for getting the ball in an opponent's court, and lose a 
point when scored on. Get five points to win. 

* Tip: This is a pretty straightforward Breakout-style game. To protect your 
own goal, keep your paddle centered in your alley, only moving it to deflect a 
ball at the edges. Put spin on any balls you play to make it extra difficult 
for opponents to judge. 

***

Pichu's Power Plant

When an Electrode appears press and hold the Control Pad in the same direction.
If the lamp is blue, repeatedly tap the B button. If the lamp is green, tap the
B Button. The first to fully charge wins. 

* Tip: The key to this mini-game is button-mashing. The faster you press the 
corresponding button (A or B, depending on the color), the quicker your meter 
will fill up. Switch quickly to a new lamp to charge yourself to victory. 

***

Rampage Rollout

Use the Control Pad to run around the track. The first to complete nine laps 
wins. Press the A Button to leave a dust cloud. You can earn and save up to 
three dust clouds per lap, depending on your rank. 

* Tip: Rampage Rollout requires proper use of whirlwinds in order to succeed. 
The number of dust clouds you get depends on the place you are whenever you 
cross the finish line each time. If you are in first place, you get none, in 
second one, in third two and three if you're in last. On the first couple laps, 
hang back and collect dust clouds, then use them in the final laps. You won't 
be affected by your own tornadoes, so put a wall of them up to slow others.

***

Streaming Stampede

Press the A Button and count the Pokemon visiting the studio. There are five 
questions. Even if you don't get the right answer, you could still earn points 
for getting close. Get the highest score to win. 

* Tip: The first couple rounds are easy, as you're simply picking Pokemon out 
of the crowd, but the last round is crazy, as you'll have to tally the streams 
of Pokemon that waddle past the camera. For the final grouping, it is easier to 
count the Pokemon first, then enter the number in after they pass. 

***

Tumbling Togepi

Run downward, using the control stick to avoid flowers, boulders and logs. Step
on an arrow to speed up. You can jump over logs, but you will slow down. The 
first one to the goal wins. 

* Tip: Tumpling Togepi can be tough to win, but it is very straightforward. 
You'll need to hit nearly every speed arrow to win, and avoid the obstacles. If 
you absoultely must hit something, the logs are the best, as Togepi hops over 
and keeps going. 

***

Delibird's Delivery

Fill the sack with up to five gifts using the Control Stick and carry it up to 
the top. Highest score wins. Earn extra points for picking up the same items in 
a row.
Diamond ring = 1000
Piano = 800 (B)
Snorlax = 350 (B)
Pikachu N64 = 250
Gameboy = 100
Stuffed stocking = 50
Candy = 20 

* Tip: Go for the big money items and stuff your sack full before heading back. 
You'll only get two to three trips this way, but they'll be worth it. The 
diamond ring and piano are best. Big items (B) will slow you down more.

***

Egg Emergency

Catch the falling eggs! Use the L and R Buttons to move from side to side. 
Avoid the VOLTORB, or you'll lose some of your eggs. There are 100 eggs in all. 
The player who catches the most eggs wins! 

* Tip: Watch the top of the screen to see where the next bunch of eggs will be 
coming from, and avoid the Voltorbs. Not only do they pack quite a shock, but 
knock some of your wonderful eggs right out of your basket, which is sad, 
indeed. 

***

Eager Eevee
When Aipom opens the lid, dash to the fruit with the A Button. Press the B 
Button to fake a dash. The race is to run five times. Get the highest score to 
win.

Green melon = 1000
Grapes = 500
Strawberries = 100 x number of berries
Pineco = penalty 

* Tip: This game is all timing. You'll want to be the first to the prize... 
especially the green melon. Getting a lump of strawberries is also good. Get 
there early so you won't have to share.

* Tip 2: Don't worry about the penalties for the first three rounds. For the
duration of them, you should always press A immediately after the monkey
raises the lid. However, in Round 4, wait and MAKE SURE that the fruit
isn't a Pineco before pressing A. If it does happen to be a Pineco and you jump
the gun, you will be disqualified from the last round, which always gives
the most points. (Submitted by Edward F.)
