Fancy Cup

Fancy Cup (Japanese: ファンシーカップ Fancy Cup), known as the Petit Cup in Generation I, is set of battle rules that appear in Pokémon Yellow, Pokémon Stadium, and the Generation IV core series games. In Pokémon Stadium, it is an intermediate-level Stadium Cup.

The restrictions include a level restriction: in Generation I, the Pokémon can be only between level 25 and 30; in Generation IV, the Pokémon are only required to be level 30 or lower. Additionally, the combined total level of the three-Pokémon battle team must be no more than 80. Evolved Pokémon are not permitted (species that have baby Pokémon are considered evolved in Generation IV). Mythical Pokémon including Phione are also prohibited. There are also height and weight restrictions: Pokémon must have a height no more than 2 m (6'07") and a weight no more than 20 kg (44.1 lbs.) to compete.

With these restrictions, in Generation I, only 45 Pokémon are eligible to be used in the Petit Cup.

In Generation IV, Fancy Cup rules can be chosen in the Single Battle or Double Battle mode at the Pokémon Communication Club Colosseum (it is not available in Flat Battle mode). In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, the Fancy Cup becomes available once the player has two Pokémon. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, it becomes available after the player has two Pokémon and has been shown how to catch Pokémon by their childhood friend (Lyra or Ethan).

Trivia

  This article is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this article to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Does the VC manual error occur in French, German, or Italian?

  • The English manual for Pokémon Yellow and the English language Fancy Cup rules in the Generation IV games state that the maximum weight for participating Pokémon is 44 lbs. However, Pokémon weighing 44.1 lbs. (20 kg) may also participate.
    • In English, the Virtual Console manual for Pokémon Yellow states that Pokémon must have a height less than 6'8" (2 m) and a weight less than 44.1 lbs (20 kg). However, Pokémon exactly 6'8" (2 m) or exactly 44.1 lbs (20 kg) can participate.
