The problem of competitive nucleation in the framework of probabilistic cellular automata is studied from the dynamical point of view. The dependence of the metastability scenario on the self-interaction is discussed.An intermediate metastable phase, made of two flip-flopping chessboard configurations, shows up depending on the ratio between the magnetic field and the self-interaction. A behavior similar to the one of the stochastic Blume-Capel model with Glauber dynamics is found.
