Little Cup

Little Cup (Japanese: リトルカップ Little Cup) is one of four Stadium Cups introduced in Pokémon Stadium 2. It was introduced for players to compete with newly-hatched baby Pokémon. It also tests the player's Pokémon breeding skills, as specific Egg Moves are highly desirable.

Although the Little Cup is for Pokémon hatched from an Egg, Pokémon caught in the wild can be entered as well. However, they follow the same restrictions and must not be evolved.

In Generation IV, Little Cup rules can be selected in Single Battle mode and Double Battle mode at the Pokémon Communication Club Colosseum. However, it is not available in Flat Battle mode. A rule similar to Little Cup known as Little Battle also debuted in Pokémon Battle Revolution.
