Pokemon Stadium Best Rental Pokemon for Gym Leader Castle, PokeCup and Prime Cup

In the list below, we are going to give you some of the best Rental Pokemon to use in the Gym Leader Castle, PokeCup and Prime Cup in Pokemon Stadium, in no particular order. We’ll also explain why we think each of them are so good. If you have any other recommendations, let us know in the comments.

  • Slowbro – Great choice for PokeCup and Prime Cup. Has Psychic and Surf as Stab moves and Disable as defense against Electric Pokemon. Good choice for Gym Leader Castle with Headbutt and Dig (but won’t have Psychic as a Stab).
  • Snorlax – Normal Pokemon with mostly average stats, but its ridiculous HP and access to the healing Rest move and Headbutt wears out opponents really efficiently. Highly recommended.
  • Gengar – Absolute buzzsaw with highest Special stat of any Pokemon, allowing it to use Thunderbolt with deadly efficiency. Plus, it has Confuse Ray, Hypnosis, and Dream Eater, the latter allowing it to restore HP.
  • Jolteon – It’s extremely high Speed stat allows it to land Critical Hits more often. Its use of Thunderbolt with its high Special attack makes it Jolteon a devastating opponent. Plus, it has Sand Attack in Prime Cup and Pokecup, which lowers the opponent’s evasion capabilities.
  • Nidoking – Extremely high Attack stat coupled with Earthquake as a Stab move makes it terrifyingly efficient in all rulesets. So much so that Nidoking is a popular choice for speedrunning Gym Leader Castle.
  • Nidoqueen – While its attacks are not as strong as Nidoking’s, Nidoqueen has Toxic that you can use to stall a fight, which works well with its higher Defense stat.
  • Exeggutor – This one is for people who want to literally sap the opponent’s will to live. Make your opponent fall asleep and slowly drain it of energy with the other moves it has access to.
