Want to know how to unlock Round 2 in Pokemon Stadium? With the re-release of the game to Nintendo Switch Online, players will be going through the game once more after almost 25 years. If you're a completionist or want a challenge, then our guide will help you unlock that elusive extra round of gameplay.

How to unlock Round 2 in Pokemon Stadium

If you want to unlock Round 2 in Pokemon Stadium, then you're going to have to go through a few hoops. This is no surprise, given it's a new veneer of difficulty with plenty of new battles to get through.

In order to unlock it, you'll need to complete Round 1 of the Gym Leader's Castle, and all of the Cup events. Then you need to beat Mewtwo, one of the toughest opponents in the game. Once you've done this, you'll unlock Round 2, which can be selected by hitting the Right C button before going into the Pokemon Stadium.

As we mentioned before, Round 2 is much harder than Round 1. The Pokemon that trainers have are either evolved, or have a much stronger move set on their Pokemon, depending on the cup. This is the ultimate test for the aspiring trainer, but is even more rewarding if you can win.

And that's all we have for you on unlocking Round 2 for Pokemon Stadium. While you're here, if you're looking for more Pokemon Stadium content, be sure to check out our other guides, such as our PokeCup guide, our Petit Cup guide, and our guide to getting Surfing Pikachu in Pokemon Stadium.
