Like its predecessor, Pokémon Stadium 2 included numerous mini-games that you can play in Single Player or with friends. These mini-games vary from logic puzzles to skill games and require you to be focused. If you play against the computer, it has three levels of difficulty; Easy, Normal and Hard to go against. You can play the games in single bursts or through a "Who's the Champion" mode which runs until a certain player has reached a set amount of wins

Unlike the predecessor though, you have the ability to use your own Pokémon from your GameBoy games. Some games won't even allow these Pokémon to be chosen unless they are in your game with the others being selected at random. As Gold & Silver introduced Shiny Pokémon, if you're lucky enough to find one in your game, you can use it in these games.
