* RubberBandAI: A really annoying mechanic in the game is that the computer will always know to use the right Pokemon to counter the Pokemon that you'll choose for battle, making many of the battles incredibly difficult since you need to really think about what to use against your opponents.Not only do you have to think about the types of Pokemon your opponent has but also what kind of nasty tricks the computer will against you.

** 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.
