Intro: Added a lot of crucial information, as well as fixing tons of conventions errors, this page is in serious need of clean up

Up to four people can play together with only one available CPU player. and playersPlayers have the option of setting the CPU's difficulty from Easy, Normal, and Hard.

In both games, players may also choose which stadium to battle in. Each stadium has a different appearance, and and some are based off of environments from [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]]. Players battle until the opposing trainers Pokémon are knocked out.
In [[Pokémon Stadium 2]] the CPU player becomes {{ga|Cal}} and introduces a different character design then the one used in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}. Cal will use whatever Pokémon the player assigns unless the Challenge Cup is chosen. Also, players and Cal can be given any amount of Pokémon (if Free Battle Mode is selected) from one Pokémon to six. Rules are introduced for Battle Mode; the cup the player chooses will determine the type of rules that are introduced. Rules can be reviewed using the R button at the mode selection screen alongside available Pokémon for the specified cup (Example: Little Cup is for level five Pokémon only).
