Pokédex (Stadium)

The Pokédex in Pokémon Stadium 2

The Pokédex (Japanese: ずかん Illustrated Encyclopedia) is available in the Japanese Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Stadium, and Pokémon Stadium 2. It includes a 3D visualization of the Pokédex from core series games connected via Transfer Pak.

Compatibility

Japanese Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium are compatible with all Generation I core series games. Pokémon Stadium 2 is compatible with all Generation I and Generation II core series games. The American and European versions of the Stadium and core series games are compatible with each other, but not with Japanese games. The Japanese versions of the Stadium games and the core series games are compatible with each other. The Korean versions of Pokémon Gold and Silver are not compatible with any Stadium game.

Location

In the Japanese Pokémon Stadium, the Pokédex is found in the menu at the beginning of the game. In Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2, the Pokédex is found at the Pokémon Lab.

In-game requirements

The Pokédex in the Stadium games requires the player to have the Pokédex in the connected core series game. Additionally, the Unowndex in Pokémon Stadium 2 requires the player to have the Unown Mode in the connected Generation II game.

In the Japanese Pokémon Stadium, the Pokédex is only available if the player saved the connected core series game at a Pokémon Center. In Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2, the Pokédex is available even if the player saved elsewhere.

Available information and 3D models

English Japanese Notes
Seen みつけたかず Amount discovered The number of Pokémon species that the player has seen.
Own つかまえたかず Amount captured The number of Pokémon species that the player has or had at any point.
Caught もっているかず Amount taken The number of Pokémon species currently available in the party or the Pokémon Storage System.

In the three Stadium games, if a Pokémon was not seen, own, or caught, then its respective Pokédex slot is completely empty, except for its Pokédex number. In the Japanese Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium, the 151 Kanto Pokédex slots are always visible, even if they are empty. In Pokémon Stadium 2, the slots are shown only up to the last available Pokémon according to each ordering system; other empty slots after the last Pokémon are not shown. In the Japanese Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium, the alphabetical order displays even the empty lines associated with unlisted Pokémon. In Pokémon Stadium 2, the alphabetical order only displays Pokémon whose names are visible (that is, only the seen, own, and caught Pokémon); empty lines are not shown.

In the Pokédex list, a "caught" Pokémon has a red Poké Ball symbol, an "own" Pokémon has a gray Poké Ball symbol and a "seen" Pokémon has no Poké Ball symbol. A partial Pokédex entry is available for "seen" Pokémon, which contains only the 3D model, species, number, category, cry, and wild Pokémon map. The full Pokédex entry is available for a "caught" or "own" Pokémon, which includes all the aforementioned data and also its height, weight, and description. The full 3D model is available for all "own" and "caught" Pokémon, while a transparent and faded out 3D model is available for all "seen" Pokémon. In all three Stadium games, the player may rotate the 3D model of a Pokémon. In Pokémon Stadium 2, there is an additional zoom feature to display the Pokémon in full screen.

Distribution map

In the three Stadium games, there is a 3D distribution map with the location and level of wild Pokémon in the connected core series games. Different sections of the same places are also listed, such as different floors in caves and areas in the Kanto Safari Zone. Pokémon Stadium 2 also displays whether a Pokémon is found by surfing or fishing and the time of day. If Stadium 2 is used to visualize a Generation I game, then the Generation I style from previous Stadium games is used. If Stadium 2 is used to visualize a Generation II game, then an updated Generation II style is used, which includes Mt. Silver visible in both the Kanto and Johto maps.

Cerulean Cave

Much like in the Generation I core series games, the Cerulean Cave is not listed on the Pokédex map in the Japanese and English versions of Pokémon Stadium. For instance, Rhydon is only available at the Cerulean Cave in Pokémon Red and Blue, but Rhydon's Pokédex map simply says "Area unknown". Similarly, Golbat is available in multiple places including the Cerulean Cave, but only the other places are shown in the Pokédex map.

Conversely, the Pokédex map in Pokémon Stadium 2 does include the Cerulean Cave (listed as part of Cerulean City). This includes the location of Pokémon from Generation I core series games (even though Cerulean Cave does not appear in the Pokédex map of those games by themselves).

Pokémon Blue glitch

There is a glitch which causes non-Japanese Stadium 2 connected with non-Japanese Pokémon Blue to display the map locations for Japanese Blue instead. For instance, the Pokédex map in Stadium 2 incorrectly displays Raticate as available in the Cerulean Cave in the non-Japanese versions of Pokémon Blue, when in fact Raticate is only available there in the Japanese version of Pokémon Blue.

List of Pokémon in Pokémon Stadium 2

Pokémon Stadium (Japanese and English)

In Pokémon Stadium (Japanese and English), the player may press the right C button to change the Pokédex order.

This predates the introduction of alphabetical order (and Japanese kana order) in the Pokédex which debuted in the Generation II core series games.

English Japanese Notes
By No. ばんごうじゅん Numerical order Organize the Pokémon by the Kanto Pokédex order.
A to Z アイウエオじゅん Kana order Organize the Pokémon by their names. In English and European versions, this is the alphabetical order.
In Japanese, this is the kana syllabary order.

Pokémon Stadium 2

In Pokémon Stadium 2, the player may press R to open the Option (Japanese: オプション Option) screen, which displays a list of available ordering systems. The New Pokédex order is used by default. However, the National Pokédex number is displayed no matter what is the ordering system used. If Pokémon Stadium 2 is used to display the Pokédex of a Generation I game, then only the options "Old Pokédex" and "A to Z" are available.

English Japanese Notes
New Pokédex あたらしいずかん New Pokédex Organize the Pokémon by the New Pokédex order.
Old Pokédex ふるいずかん Old Pokédex Organize the Pokémon by the National Pokédex order.
A to Z アイウエオじゅん Kana order This is the same as the "A to Z" mode in the games above.
Unowndex アンノーンずかん Illustrated Unknown encyclopedia Displays the list of Unown, like the Unown Mode of the Generation II core series games.

Search

There is a Search (Japanese: けんさく Search) screen available in Pokémon Stadium 2. In the Pokédex, the player may press L to open the Search screen. The player may choose a type or a combination of two types. The list of search results only displays Pokémon that were "caught" or "own"; it doesn't display Pokémon that were only "seen".

Unowndex

In Pokémon Stadium 2, the Unowndex (Japanese: アンノーンずかん Illustrated Unknown encyclopedia) is a variation of the Unown Mode from the Generation II core series games. Like in the main Pokédex from the Stadium series, there is a number of "Caught" Unown (the number of different Unown forms that the player has or had at any point) and "Own" Unown (the number of different Unown forms currently available in the party or the Pokémon Storage System). However, the Unowndex has no "Seen" feature, so there is no way to check if any Unown forms were seen but never captured. The 26 available Unown forms are displayed in the order that they were caught. If a certain Unown form was never caught, then it does not appear in the list at all. The Unowndex includes a 3D model for each available Unown form and the additional full screen zoom feature that was introduced in Pokémon Stadium 2. The Unown word is also shown, like "Angry" (Unown A), "Bear" (Unown B), etc.
