Gym Leader Castle
A Gym Leader Castle (Japanese: ジムリーダーのしろ Gym Leader Castle) is a location in the Pokémon Stadium series where players may battle the Gym Leaders (and their disciples) and the Elite Four of the Pokémon games of that Generation.
The Gym Leader Castle in Pokémon Stadium is a darkened, curving path leading from tower to tower, with each tower's top in the shape of that Gym Leader's Badge. To advance to the next tower, the player needs to defeat each of Kanto's Gym Leaders in turn, eventually making way to the Elite Four and Champion, the rival. After defeating the rival, the player will win one rare Pokémon out of a selection of eight.

Pokémon Stadium 2
The Gym Leader Castle in Pokémon Stadium 2 features differently-designed rooms for each of Johto's Gym Leaders, each one representing the Leader's type in its design. Like in its predecessor, the player needs to defeat each of Johto's Gym Leaders in turn, now including an intervention by Team Rocket between the Olivine and Mahogany Gyms, and eventually making their way to the Elite Four and its Champion, Lance. Upon his defeat, if all Pokémon on the player's team came from a Game Boy cartridge, one of them can relearn a move that was available for it on an earlier level.
After the defeat of Lance, mirroring the story progression in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the player can challenge a revamped version of the Kanto Gym Leader Castle. Though it has the same battle arenas as the first game, the castle itself is notably different: the eight Badges of Kanto are on the sides of the castle's towers, which are arranged closely together. No Gym Trainers are featured, and the Gym Leaders can be faced in any order. After all eight of them have been defeated, the player can challenge Red in a cave separate from the castle itself. Defeating him finishes the Kanto Gym Leader Castle.

Each time the Rival is beaten, a random one of these eight Pokémon is received:
If the Rival is beaten in Round 1, then the prize Pokémon will be holding a Normal Box if traded to Generation II, which contains a Silver Trophy. If the Rival is beaten in Round 2, then the prize Pokémon will be holding a Gorgeous Box instead, which contains a Gold Trophy.
Pokémon Stadium 2
For beating the Gym Leader Castle in Round 1, the player will receive the Doduo Sticker mode (if not all Stadium Cups have been beaten in Round 1) or the Dodrio Sticker mode (if all Stadium Cups have been beaten in Round 1) for the Game Boy Tower for Generation I games.
For beating the Gym Leader Castle in Round 2, the player will receive the Doduo Sticker mode (if not all Stadium Cups have been beaten in Round 2) or the Dodrio Sticker mode (if all Stadium Cups have been beaten in Round 2) for the Game Boy Tower for Generation II games.
Additionally, the player can use the Move Reminder option each time that he beats the Elite Four and the Champion in the Round 1 or the Round 2 as long as they meet the following requirements: their six Pokémon come from a Generation I or Generation II core series game, they can't be registered, and the player has to beat the Elite Four and the Champion in a single sitting (they can't use the Suspend option).
