Whether you're a new or returning player, our Pokemon Stadium Petit Cup guide will help you prepare for what's to come.Pokemon Stadium on Nintendo Switch Online omits one of the features that made the tough challenge a little easier. But the internet was in its infancy in the last 90s. The information overload below can help fill the gap.
Pokemon Stadium released almost 25 years ago on the N64, offering a much more challenging and different experience to the original Red, Blue and Yellow titles. The Petit Cup highlights the underdogs of the first 151 creatures, but that doesn't make it a walk in the park. Our Pokemon Stadium Petit Cup guide will help you prepare for what's to come.

As with any Pokemon event, there are rules to these cups. And the Petit cup is no different. There are a few rules here that limit what kinds of Pokemon that you can use as well as the level these Pokemon can be.
The main gimmick of this cup is that only unevolved Pokemon can be used. As they're restricted to below level 30, too, don't expect many hard-hitting moves.
