"I love Pokemon Stadium for N64 because you can see the Pokemon you've caught in 3D on the big screen. You can also use the Transfer Packs to transfer your data from Red, Blue, and Yellow into Stadium."

"LeafGreen is my favorite Pokemon game because it came with a wireless adapter that made the multiplayer component so much fun! I also like that when you load a saved game, there was a short black and white sequence that replayed your earlier accomplishments."
