Regional Differences
Some of the rental Pokémon originally had worse movesets.

Unused Graphics

Butterfree Banner

Freeeeeee!

An animation of two Butterfree holding a banner, found within the main menu graphics. It may have been used to display the names of the locations at one point. In the final game, each location name is on a cloud.

Nintendo Cup '98 Trainers

The Nintendo Cup '98 CPU opponents are unused in the localized versions.

Metapod

Metapod, use Harden!

A Metapod. It's listed as a trainer, for some reason. This image was probably intended for Transel Taneichi, a Japanese video game magazine editor.

Unused Experience Groups

The two unused Experience groups from Pokémon Red and Blue are still present at 0x7DE453.

34 0A 00 1E     ;Unused 1: (3/4 Lv³) + (10 × Lv²) – 30: 849,970 Exp at Lv 100
34 14 00 46     ;Unused 2: (3/4 Lv³) + (20 × Lv²) – 70: 949,930 Exp at Lv 100

Unused Event Move

Acid Diglett

Diglett is listed as learning Acid at Level 1 at the end of its Red and Blue level-up moves at 0x780140, causing the game to consider it a valid move. This is how certain Event Pokémon with special moves are allowed to be valid, such as Pikachu with Surf and Psyduck with Amnesia. An Event Diglett with Acid has never been released, and Diglett has otherwise never been able to learn Acid.

Unused Move Effects

Despite not being used in the game, some of the unused move effects from Red and Blue are coded in Stadium.

Move effect 23 (Blizzard) is used in this game, though its Freeze chance has been reduced to 10.2%. Move effects 1E, 48, and 49 have had their effect changed from Red and Blue.

01 Puts enemy to Sleep.
0C Raises Speed by 1 stage.
0E Raises Accuracy by 1 stage.
15 Lowers Special by 1 stage.
17 Lowers Evasion by 1 stage.

Debug Display

Hmmm...
To do:
There may be more debug features/leftovers.

Crash Handler

A crash handler similar to other games like Paper Mario exists in the game. It displays the exception code and a dump of the registers.

To trigger it, crash the game in some way, then press D-Up, D-Down, D-Left, D-Right, C-Up, C-Down, C-Left, C-Right, B, A. Note that this only works on version 1.0 of Pokémon Stadium.

Unused Pokédex Entry

The unused Pokédex entry ID 152 has no Pokémon species name, but it has an entry text as follows.

  • English: SUBSTITUTE POKé DOLL (North American v1.1: 0x78AB03; European v1.1: 0x77D2C3)
  • Japanese: みがわりにんぎょう (0x071184)
  • French: POKéPOUPEE de SUBSTITUTION (0x7666AA)
  • German: DELEGATOR-POKéPUPPE (0x76BF79)
  • Italian: POKé BAMBOLA SOSTITUTO (0x766F11)
  • Spanish: POKé MUÑECA SUSTITUTA (0x769E1F)

Oddities

MISSINGNO.

Hmmm...
To do:
Try to hack the game (with GameShark?) to allow it to be transferred.

If one were to try to transfer MISSINGNO. from Red or Blue, it will show a Substitute Poké Doll as the icon, but it won't let you transfer it to the game.

Pokémon Green Compatibility

Hmmm...
To do:
What game ID is checked for? Some information here.

The international releases retain support for Pokémon Green. This functionality goes unused because Green was only released in Japan, and Japanese Generation I games are incompatible with other languages.

Remote Animations

A couple of Pokemon have animations for moves, that while technically used, are only able to be seen through using Mimic to learn moves that they can't normally learn. Venusaur has an animation which is used while using moves such as Earthquake and Fissure where it climbs onto its back legs and stomps the ground, while Pikachu has an animation where it tries to focus to the point of sweating which is used while using moves such as Psychic and Confusion. Venusaur would eventually be able to learn Earthquake in Ruby and Sapphire, making its animation used normally in Pokemon Colosseum and XD: Gale of Darkness.
