I love the Pokémon stadiums games from back on the N64, with the concept of starting with 6 Pokémon, and taking 3 of them into battle. I also liked being able to rent Pokémon instead of spending time capturing, breeding, and training Pokémon for competitive battling. I liked the battle dome from Pokémon emerald as well.

I’ve been out of the scene for a while, but is there a Pokémon game somewhere that has a similar feature to it, that includes gen 6 or gen 7 pokemon and battling formats? I’m aware of Showdown, but I was looking for something without the need of battling other people.

Not that I know of. The last game similar to Stadium was Battle Revolution for Wii. As far as I know, Gamefreak incorrectly considers the biggest draw for Stadium-like games is seeing Pokémon with 3D graphics and dosen't think they'll sell not that the main games are 3D.

Gamefreak has been shafting people who enjoyed the varied battling experience the Stadium games and Battle Frontier offered for some time now.

I would buy a Pokémon Stadium style game for the same reason as you.

I wish, TC. I wish.

I personally believe we need an official battle simulator now more than ever before now that mainline Pokemon games won't have all the Pokemon present anymore. A battle sim can program all the Pokemon in and update it whenever new content is made. It'd be the perfect hub to set up all sorts of Pokemon battles. If Pokemon Home had this feature or this hypothetical battle sim simply supported Home 100%, that would be fantastic.

Colosseum?

Has Stadium Mode and if you don't have a copy of R/S/E FRLG, it has a rather short Story mode

Please excuse how Colosseum handles shinies

Only Shadow Pokemon can be shiny even it won't look shiny until you catch and then I'll be shiny...if it is a shiny in the first Place

Don't except to run into a shiny

And that Ho-Oh you can get...can't be shiny nor can you softreset for a good nature.

Meanwhile Shadow Pokemon can't be shiny in XD so no Shiny Lugia there.

What about hacks of Pokémon games? Like a hack of emerald that has a battle frontier with an updated Pokémon roster.

Showdown probably is the closest thing i’m looking for, but as mentioned a big draw would be better animations, and i’d like the option to play non human opponents. I haven’t played competitive Pokémon since gen 4/5, and i’m really just looking for a more casual experience.
