** Completing the Master Cup in the original with a Pikachu in your party will give the player an opportunity to make Pikachu learn Surf. When Pikachu uses Surf in the game, it will [[SurferDude use a surfboard]] in the move animation, while its evolved form Raichu will ride on its tail. In ''Pokémon Yellow'', the overworld Surfing sprite will change to Pikachu on a surfboard. It will also allow the player to play an ExciteBike clone called "Pikachu's Beach" in a house south of Fuschia City. As a CallBack to this, in ''Battle Revolution'', Surfing Pikachu can be unlocked as a Mystery Gift by completing the game.

* Notably, Generation V completely ''lacked'' any kind of Stadium title - the online battling was now handled by the DS games themselves. This has continued into Generation VI and VII, with no Stadium-esque title announced for the UsefulNotes/WiiU, and with the storage utility, ''Pokemon Bank'', being a separate app for the 3DS. With the main series handheld games now featuring high quality 3D graphics, it would seem that there would be little point to doing so.

* StockFootage:
** Pay close enough attention to every game in the series and you'll notice that they only ever create new models for the new Pokémon. Even in the latest games, Gen I Pokémon still have the same animations as they did in the first ''Stadium'' game.
** Despite using the same models, ''Battle Revolution'' offered texture and special effects updates to the older Pokémon.

* ActionBomb: The Super Nerds in ''Pokémon Stadium 1'' uses an entire team of pokemon that uses Self-Destruct or Explosion as his main strategy for Petit Cup and Gym Leader Castle. The male Rocket Grunt also uses this strategy in Pokemon Stadium 2's Gym Leader Castle. Both of them are aware of the self-destruct clause, and won't blow up their last pokemon though.

* WarmupBoss: In ''Stadium 2'''s Johto Gym Leader Castle, Jasmine of the Olivine Gym serves as the warmup boss since she will switch out her Pokémon to get the advantage on you plus her team is more varied unlike previous trainers and Gym Leaders. If you plan/react wrongly to Jasmine's switching, she will have the advantage and can defeat you. Though if you anticipate and react to her switching correctly, she can be pretty easy especially if you exploit her team's weaknesses. Jasmine basically reminds you that your future opponents can switch their Pokémon on you to give themselves the advantage over you.

* {{Irony}}: For all the underleveled, illegally obtainable fully evolved pokemon in Pika Cup, such as Dugtrio, Electrode, Tentacruel, Muk, Golem, Machamp, Dragonair, Dewgong, as well as the Dragon Rage users in such a low level setting, the most powerful, insurmountably difficult, and mercilessly destructive enemy pokemon you fight in Pika Cup is not only legally obtainable, but one of the easiest pokemon to acquire; a Level 20 Alakazam with Psychic and Thunder Wave. While some of the "illegally obtained" pokemon can be challenging for rentals, the Level 20 Alakazam is the only pokemon in the entire cup that is ''genuinely impossible to beat'' with Rental Pokemon barring miraculous freeze hax that you'll only have one chance at pulling off or else you die. The guides even recommends the player to just use the transfer pack, or pray that you face the level 20 Dragonair instead.
