Pokémon Stadium 2

Two classic Pokémon games are now available on Nintendo’s Switch Online.

During the latest Pokémon Presents stream, The Pokémon Company confirmed that Pokémon Stadium 2 and Pokémon Trading Card Game are hitting the Switch subscription service next.

Originally released on the N64, 2001’s Pokémon Stadium 2 is the sequel to 2000’s Pokémon Stadium (which came to Switch Online in April) and adds Generation II monsters to the 3D battling experience. Pokémon Trading Card Game, meanwhile, is a 1998 Game Boy Color title that, as the name suggests, features Pokémon playing cards based both on the real-life TCG and those exclusively created for the video game.

As a Game Boy Color game, Pokémon Trading Card Game is available through the base Switch Online membership, which costs $4.99/month or $24.99/year. However, N64 games like Pokémon Stadium 2 require the Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription, priced at $63.99/year.
