Pocket Monsters Stadium (Japan)

The original Pocket Monsters Stadium game only released in Japan.

This Nintendo 64 release was the first non handheld Pokémon console game.

Pocket Monsters Stadium has the ability to connect to Generation I games for Pokémon transfer and battle on the Nintendo 64. The game never saw release outside of Japan because of the limited number of Pokémon avalable for players to battle with, the grand total in game being 42.
