The '''Pokémon 2000 Stadium Tour''' was a series of events that were held across {{pmin|the United States}} and {{pmin|Canada}}<ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/20000519171041/http://www.nintendo.ca/cgi-bin/fetch_events.cgi?thing=6610107 Nintendo of Canada (Archive)] (Retrieved January 9, 2014)</ref> in 2000 promoting the release of {{eng|Pokémon Stadium}} for the [[Nintendo 64]] game console. At the event, attendees could see a preview of Pokémon Stadium and receive [[List of European language event Pokémon distributions in Generation I#Pokémon 2000 Stadium Tour Mew|a Mew]] for the [[Generation I]] [[Game Boy]] games. Using the new [[Transfer Pak]], competitors were able to watch their best Pokémon, from their favorite Game Boy game, battle in full 3D on the Nintendo 64. The Stadium Tour hosted Pokémon Battles in three skill groups: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Trainers were allowed to use either {{game3|Red and Blue|Pokémon Red, Blue|s}}, or {{v2|Yellow}} for the tournament. If the attendees and their Pokémon performed well, they had the opportunity to earn Official Pokémon Trainer Badges. Pokémon Masters from Nintendo were on-hand to challenge the very best Pokémon Trainers to a Pokémon Master Trainer Challenge on mammoth big screen televisions. The winner of the east coast tournament at the Montgomery Mall in Maryland was Alex Ed Prins-Stairs.

The final Pokémon battle for the trophy was fought three on three, with Alex Ed Prins-Stairs vs a "Pokémon Master" Staff member. The battle could be seen live and in 3D for the first time on a big screen television using {{eng|Pokémon Stadium}} which hadn't been released yet. Ed's team was {{p|Mewtwo}}, {{p|Mew}} and {{p|Starmie}} while the staff members' team was {{p|Mewtwo}}, {{p|Mew}} and {{p|Articuno}}. After a long battle where both {{p|Mewtwo}} were the remaining Pokémon on the field and {{m|Recover}}, {{m|Rest}} and {{m|Thunder Wave}} were the only available moves on either side, rather than take up time with non-damaging moves, the staff member forfeited and declared Alex Ed Prins-Stairs the winner. The trophy was mailed to the winner along with a {{i|Poké Ball}} filled with candy and a {{p|Mewtwo}} plushie.
