Last year Nintendo announced Pokemon Stadium 1 and Pokemon Stadium 2 will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online later this year. The games will be added to the ever-growing N64 library. This will expand the N64 app available for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass subscribers. These aren’t the first Pokemon games to come to N64 either given Pokémon Puzzle League Is Now Available on Nintendo Switch Online.
During the Pokemon Stadium announcement, Nintendo added an on-screen disclaimer stating “Pokemon cannot be transferred to these games”. A statement that clarifies these N64 titles won’t link to other Pokemon games, like they did on the original hardware. Thus Players being unable to transfer Pokemon, to these games.
This week, Nintendo released an updated trailer, featuring even more Pokemon Stadium gameplay. However the on-screen disclaimer that did feature alongside the gameplay, has since been removed.
This has sparked rumours within the Pokemon community that Nintendo may be allowing Pokemon to be transferred to the upcoming Pokemon Stadium titles after-all.
This may not come as a huge surprise, given Nintendo has just launched the Nintendo Gameboy and Nintendo Gameboy Advance apps, as part of the Nintendo Switch Online service.
The release of both the Nintendo Gameboy and the Nintendo Gameboy Advance apps, now give players the ability to play a library of classic Gameboy games. And may provide a solution to transferring Pokemon…
There’s a bunch of Gameboy games currently available, with even more expected to release soon. However with the updated trailer for Pokemon Stadium having removed the original disclaimer message, many fans believe this could hint that Pokemon Red and Blue are coming to Nintendo Switch Online too. With Nintendo releasing them to work alongside Pokemon Stadium.
If this is true, and the original Generation 1 and Generation 2 Pokemon Gameboy games do come to the Nintendo Switch library, it’s possible this is how Players will transfer Pokemon. Essentially trading Pokemon from the originals Gameboy titles and into Pokemon Stadium.
This is the conclusion behind Nintendo removing the disclaimer from Pokemon Stadium.
Do you think this is credible? Was it an oversight, or are Nintendo planning Pokemon Gameboy releases on Nintendo Switch, and that’s why they removed the disclaimer?
