Trel Plays Pokemon Stadium Episode 1

This is a stream I decided to turn into an LP on the drop of a hat. I’ll be starting with Gym Leader Castle since it seems like the most fitting place to start.

This series is beginning with Round 2 because Round 1 had far too shallow of a difficulty curve.

The Pokemon used on my team were generated using a Red, Blue, and Yellow save editor. I mostly did this for convenience.

Without further ado, enjoy the show!
