pokemon stadium will join Nintendo’s growing list of Nintendo 64 classics that you can play via Nintendo Switch Online from April 12. First released in 2000, Stadium it’s a focused battle Pokemon game with the original 151 pocket monsters.
The point is that this version of Stadium It has one very important catch (no pun intended): You can’t transfer any of your own Pokemon into the game. As a child, part of the appeal of the game was bringing my well-trained pokemon red with the N64 transfer package so they could face off in the glorious 3D of the N64 era. Without the transfer feature, it looks like you’ll have to rely on the game’s rental teams, which probably won’t be as satisfying as training my beloved Butterfree to win.
