Pocket Monsters Stadium King of Fighters (Bronze) (Chinese title: 怪物競技格鬥王(銅)) is a currently undumped fighting game for the Game Boy Color centered around the Pokémon franchise. It is currently unknown if this game is a hack of an official game or if it was built from the ground up.
The game starts off with Pikachu and friends walking in a forest setting, the graphics being stolen from Pokémon Red and Blue. Another group of Pokémon kidnap one of Pikachu's friends, leading him and his friends to set out to rescue them.
The game is a fighting game, though unlike regular Pokémon games the characters appear on the same plane side by side. Each character has a set of attacks that match the regular attributes of the Pokémon in the official games, and you can switch Pokémon during battle. A little bar at each player's side of the screen keeps rising then resetting back to its starting position when it is their turn, and depending on if you press A when the bar is at its peak, your attacks will be stronger. However, each attack has a set amount of usage points, and once your character has used up all these points you can not restore them. In addition, any moves in general will cause a second "skill" bar to go down, and once its reached its bottom, the player can not attack anymore unless they restore the bar by taking a turn out to replenish it.
The game's basic setup is watching a small playout of events and then your team ending up in battle with the group of Pokémon involved in your friends kidnapping. In each new area you typically come across a new Pokémon that decides to join your team. After each battle and another small cinematic, a map comes up of what resembles a world map, and a small plane leaves a trail from your current location up to your new location.
- This game is compatible with the original monochrome Game Boy.
- The box art is based on the one used in Monster Dragon Tactics Card, another hack from Good Life, except here only the three starters are present.
- This game is included on the Super Color 25-in-1 multicart, named "Pokémon Stadium" on the menu and "Pokémon 2000: Super Pikachu" (in Chinese) on the title screen. The label of this multicart includes the aforementioned box art.
- This game uses music from Jinsei Game Densetsu for Game Boy by Takara. This soundtrack is also used in Good Life's Monster Dragon Tactics Card.
