I sold my childhood N64 years ago, and I’m looking for a way to play Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2 again, on my good ‘ol CRT. I’m not a purist per se, but I’m not going with emulation because I also have the GBC Pokémon games and wanna use the link functionality there.

I don’t know how many other games I’d be playing to justify the cost of an everdrive, but I don’t know whether it’s really just more worth it in the end for compatibility reasons as opposed to a repro. Another questions is if there’s a Retron-esque N64 clone. I’d be willing to go with one of those, too.

Do you have the little adapter thing?

Anyway many around here would generally view repros as bad news with them being essentially paid piracy, and if you have a hack involved as well then likely to be an old dodgy version of said hack.

A flash cart in turn allows multiple ROMs, cheats, ROM hacks (that are up to date), possibly region dodging and more besides.

The only everdrive able to play Pokemon stadium 2 is the everdrive v3: it cost a lot more than the standard everdrive 2.5. If you are only interested in pokemon stadium games a repro should be fine, assuming ou are able to find a good repro. Compatibility and link capability should be the same (on original hardware).
