I have always loved Pokémon ever since I grew up on the 1st generation games. I was ecstatic when I got Stadium to use in conjunction with my Blue version. I played those games for years, and I never completely beat the Stadium mode. Years later, when my interest in all things Pokémon spiked, I decided to go back and beat it. Sadly, my Blue cart had died. At this point, I drove to the local game store, bought a new Blue cart, and started over. Beating the whole R2 Stadium made me feel like I completed my childhood dream.
