Pokemon Stadium Switch Online

Pokemon Stadium is coming to Nintendo Switch Online next week, Nintendo just announced. It will be available on April 12, 2023 via the Expansion Pack tier.

Pokemon Stadium originally launched in 2000 for the N64. The battle arena title contains every Pokemon from Pokemon Red / Blue / Yellow.

Here’s some additional information:

The original 151 Pokémon are here, and the roar of the stadium is calling your name – but do you have what it takes to be the very best?

Starting April 12, the Pokémon Stadium game is bringing thrilling Pokémon battles to the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library for everyone with a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership. Originally released on the Nintendo 64 system in 2000, this battle arena game features every Pokémon from the Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version games alongside a bevy of solo and multiplayer modes designed to test your mettle as a Pokémon Trainer!

In Pokémon Stadium, you can battle it out solo with your chosen team of six Pokémon across four tournaments in Stadium mode or run it back against Kanto’s elite Trainers in Gym Leader Castle. Winning in either of these modes will secure a spot for your champion team in Victory Palace, but completing both modes will unlock a final battle to challenge even the ultimate Trainer.

Looking for some multiplayer free-form fun? Compete in no-holds-barred battles with friends in the 1-4 player Free Battle mode, or party it up with a collection of nine minigames in the Kids Club. It might be called the Kids Club, but even seasoned Trainers may feel the heat in the Sushi-Go-Round kitchen, or after reaching new heights in Magikarp’s Splash!

Pokemon Stadium 2 will also be made available on the service in the future. However, a specific release date hasn’t been announced. We should be seeing it sometime this year, and we’ll keep you updated once we hear more.
