Pokemon Stadium coming to Nintendo Switch Online - Nintendo 64 Pack

A central talking point in the Pokeverse has been the discussion about the Nintendo Switch Online N64 collection and what will be added with this expansion pack. 

One of the many brainteasers has been whether Nintendo will be adding Pokemon Stadium to Nintendo Switch Online and when, if they are. If you’d like to learn more about Pokemon Stadium and its arrival on Nintendo Switch Online, you’ve come to the right place.

Firstly, What is Pokemon Stadium?

For those who don’t know and have just started their pokemon quest, Pokemon Stadium is a strategy video game developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64, first released in 1998. It revolves around the OG Pokemon titles Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow.

When’s Pokemon Stadium Coming to Nintendo Switch Online?

The year earmarked for the arrival of Pokemon Stadium is 2023. The exact date is yet to be announced. The only important info released with the brief public statement by Nintendo is that you’ll still not be able to import your teams from any other Pokemon versions.

While that has been the major upset in this discussion, some fans believe Stadium and Stadium 2 will support Pokemon transfers from other versions. Other rumors and fan discussions believe Nintendo will likely drop Pokemon Stadium and Stadium 2 on Pokemon Day.

It will be a good idea to keep your eyes on all Pokemon socials and look out for Pokemon Day and what surprise announcements they have coming for 2023 and the future.
