Mugshots of Pichu found among the mugshots of the trainers and gym leaders. Apparently, Pichu's also aiming to be a Pokémon master, which is pretty adorable and would have been pretty unexpected.
An unused Japanese name tag for the Game Boy Tower. It translates to "GB Building".
For the sake of consistency, every Pokémon in every Pokémon game is given a Shiny variant, including Mew. However, all Mew distributed to Generation I games have a fixed set of DVs that prevents them from becoming Shiny in Generation II games, leaving its Shiny form unobtainable through normal means. However, whenever a shiny Ditto transforms into another Pokémon, it will always be in the shiny form of the opposing Pokémon. The only exclusion will be an Unown who is not of the letter "I" or "V" due to how Unown forms and shininess were determined in Generation II.
Shiny Mew would later be available in Emerald as a normal Shiny chance for the wild Mew encounter at Faraway Island (via the Japanese Old Sea Map distribution).

Debug Menu and Debug Remnants
The game has a functioning debug menu, along with some unused strings for debug functions that aren't listed on the menu. Unfortunately, it's pretty boring, with most of the options just taking you to the specified place in the game or showing you cutscenes. Most of the unused text seems to imply it once had more functions than what's been found in the final (though it may also be related to the "Debugger" option, which hangs the game).
The following codes activate the menu; press L + D-Pad Up on the title screen to access it.

Test on real hardware.
Hangs the game on a black screen.
Selecting this brings up a small box with all of the stages as options. After selecting a stage, you will immediately enter a two-player battle on that stage, with no Pokémon selection screens. The first trainer's name is set to "Pokemon" and the second trainer's name is set to "Stadium", both purple because the Pokémon in each team have illegal moves. Player one is given a team of Charizard, Squirtle, and Wartortle while Player two is given a team of Blastoise, Caterpie and Metapod all of them level 100. Of note is that if the player has a Transfer Pak and generation 1/2 game inserted and selects this, the Pokémon used in this mode will be the same ones from the inserted game's party. Otherwise, it plays out like a normal battle.
Takes you to the Lab screen.
Takes you to the Pokémon Academy screen.
Takes you to the Stadium Cup selection screen. Of note, however, is that you will be in round 2 regardless of whether or not you completed the first round.
GYM LEADER CASTLE
Takes you to the Gym Leader Castle. Again, you will be in round 2 regardless of whether or not you completed the first round.
Takes you to the Mystery Gift screen.
Takes you to the map screen that you normally see when looking up Pokémon locations in the Pokédex. However, no Pokémon is selected, and so the game shows " 's Nest" and "Area Unknown". The music also stops on this screen.
Takes you to the mini-game screen.
Test on real hardware.
This option will hang on emulators after the Transfer Pak select screen. Going by what we have seen so far and the Transfer Pak selection screen showing, it's probably safe to say this is just the normal Game Boy Tower.
Displays the text seen when unlocking the Doduo Game Boy Tower. After pressing A, the game will hang on a black screen. It is unknown if this actually unlocks the Tower, due to the aforementioned hanging issue.
Displays the cutscene for obtaining a new Pokémon (e.g. after defeating a Gym Leader). The particular Pokémon shown here is the Farfetch'd you normally get for defeating the rival in round 1. Of note is that the game does give you the Pokémon, as if you had actually defeated the rival. After the cutscene ends, you are taken back to the title screen.
Cup Clear Demo
Displays the "Cup Clear" cutscene. The Pokémon normally shown here are the ones you won the Cup with, but since you didn't actually win a Cup to see this, it shows a team of Pikachu, Raichu, Sandshrew, Sandslash, Nidoran♀, and Nidorina. The Cup it shows as being "Cleared" is the Prime Cup. After the cutscene ends, you are taken back to the title screen.
Takes you to the credits.
In the Japanese version of the game, this takes you to the Mobile Stadium menus once used in conjunction with a (Japanese) copy of Pokémon Crystal and the Mobile Adapter GB. Selecting this in the US version, however, just takes you to the normal Transfer Pak check screen you see after pressing Start on the title screen.
Displays a (very long) cutscene showing all 251 generation 2 Pokémon, normally seen after finishing round 2. After the cutscene ends, you are taken back to the title screen.
Displays the screen you normally see before the battle with the rival. Pressing A to "continue" just brings you back to the title screen.
Displays the cutscene shown when a Pokémon learns a new move. Oddly enough, this particular instance shows a Bulbasaur learning Counter, which is something it can't legitimately learn.
Displays the cutscene shown after clearing the Gym Leader Castle in round 2. After the cutscene ends, you are taken back to the title screen.

Much like the previous game, upon launching, Pikachu's voice is heard in international versions. In the Japanese version, people's voices are heard instead.
In the Japanese version, players can download data of timed mobile battles from the Japanese Pokémon Crystal using its Mobile Stadium feature and watch them in Stadium 2 using the equivalent Mobile Stadium function.
This plays in the Mobile Stadium screen of Stadium 2. It is rearranged from the Mobile Center theme in Crystal and its filename is "sparse41.miniusf".
