Pokémon Stadium is one of the six default stages and it appears similar to Melee's Pokémon Stadium, but it does not change terrain at any given time due to the Flash inexperience at the time of game's creator, Cleod9. It is the fifth stage in Adventure mode where the player fights three Pokémon according to the ones they unlocked, which after beating the three Pokémon, a giant Pokémon will appear for battle.
The music track is an orchestrated remix of the Battle Theme portion of the Smashing.. Live! arrangement from Super Smash Bros. Melee's soundtrack.
A stage such as this has never been seen in any Pokémon game. There have been flat areas where trainers would do battle, but they were always inside buildings called 'gyms'. There have been some outside areas, in stadiums such as the one seen here, but the battle area was always on the ground, and never suspended in the air. The two floating platforms have never been seen, either. There have been gyms with a theme based on a Pokémon type, such as rock or electric, and the scenery would change to match the theme. However, the exact arrangements in this stage have never been seen in a Pokémon title. A possible source of inspiration for both this stage and its Melee Stage predecessor is the Pokémon anime television show, in which type-transforming arenas featured during the Pokémon League. However, said transformations are absent in SSF's incarnation.
Up until the August 2008 renovation of the McLeodGaming website, visitors could get a free sprite sample of this stage. With the renovation, it is no longer possible to get a sample and Cleod9 has discontinued any distribution.
