    I hear people whining about Pokemon being the exact, exact, exact, exact same thing over, and over, and over, and over again. Despite the fact that they are NOT the same, and almost ALWAYS have new features that the others did not have. Not everyone plays it for storylines, nor are you forced to buy them. I say get over it...but.

    I've never once heard a single complaint about the Yu-gi-oh games, which are even MORE of the same thing each game then the last one. At least Stardust Accel. brought Speed Duels to the field(pun intended), which was rather new. But playing RoA, it seems LITERALLY like an expansion. I bought it anyway, don't regret it, but still, it makes me wonder. Yu-gi-oh is extremely popular, I'd almost wager that it's somewhat close to Pokemon's popularity(both positive and negative).

    So. When Pokemon almost always brings at least 1 thing new EVERY TIME a new generation comes out, people whine, moan, and poo their pants, why doesn't anyone do that over Yu-gi-oh games, which release MORE games then Pokemon. One each year for GBC/GBA/DS, and a bunch on other handhelds and the consoles as well.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Personally I don't like Yu-Gi-Oh after WC2008 (which I still play). They changed the board too much. Pokemon never screw it up - so far.

    I still don't get what people mean by this. The board's format is, and always has been, the exact same thing since the start...

    The 2010 version is the best in my opinion, it's like a combination of both the 2-D and 3-D board types.

    Actually that looks quite nice. Miss the 3D animated top screen but the actaul board was what I hated about 2009. Might have to give that a whirl.

    I can agree that...

    Im a Yu-Gi-Oh card player and im playing WC2010..., additionally, im a pokemon card player and a storyline follower.

    5D is just crap... i liked Yu-Gi and Jaden main storyline. I hate Speed World cards and battles...

    Well, syncro cards are ok, is like Neo cards, but is a great... but... the game and main storyline just crap.

    I can play pokémon games... are just fun, is complex, popular and yeah, each pokémon version have a new change... you must modify your team attacks or pokémon... thats fun.

    Instead... on YuGiOh with the 5D change... you must change your game style, i mean... i cant play safely with my dark magician deck (yeah, im old school) and be prepared to that stupid race games.

    YuGiOh 2010 is not bad, but 2008 with new cards should be REALLY BETTER.

    Instead, each version of pkmn is great =\ Im waiting Heart Gold (not dump xD Im will buy it), but YuGiOh 2009 was like Windows Vista =P

    You're kidding, right? The story in 5D's EASILY outranks the original and GX...edgier, darker, lot better...has the homicidal Aki...

    Pokemon is simple and boring. It NEEDS something new because otherwise you're doing the exact same thing over and over. A different region and a bunch of boring filler crap is all that changes per game.
    A bunch of new pokemon is nice, but they're getting lazier and lazier thus pokemon are getting lamer and lamer as they go.


    Yugioh may be the 'same thing', but it's also constantly different. You can make decks from what, 2 or 3 thousand cards? It's always fun, and there's always a feel of variety to it. You can duel against tons and tons of different pre-set decks, or do some multiplayer and have a blast with that. There's always an edge of difficulty to it as well, since it's basically impossible to create an "ultimate" deck, but is very fun to try.

    TL;DR - Pokemon being basically the same crap over and over is 510% more apparent then Yugioh being the same over and over. Thus the complaints.

    Pokemon was a lot more popular than YuGiOh and thus drew as much hate as it did love. Not to mention YuGiOh is updated every year mostly for new cards. Kinda like baseball games and updated rosters. Although I don't know where the fuck they got the idea of putting motorcycles in there...

    Also, YuGiOh is a card game. Pokemon is a RPG. Card games hardly go through any change. Magic the Gathering, the most popular trading card game ever, still relies on principles from when it launched 20-odd years ago. Sure, it has a lot of new cards and some new mechanics in place, but it's still Magic. And I fucking love MtG. As for Pokemon, people expect some change eventually. I really don't care since I find Pokemon RPG mechanics to be great to start with, but some people do. Pokemon does, like Magic the Gathering, change some things around while keeping the same formula. No longer is Special one stat, it's now two stats. No longer does an attack's power rely on what type it is, but whether it's a physical attack or non-physical attack. Oh, and there's lots of new Pokemon, each unique to another. It's still the same turn-based and core mechanics since it's Red and Blue days, though.

    Speaking of Pokemon and card games....I wish Nintendo would give us another Pokemon TCG for the DS.

    The pokemon TCG was a joke.
    A joke I was joyfully apart of when it first started....but yeah, a joke nonetheless.

    Well, it was basically another "LET'S PUSH A FAD" game but it was actually shitloads of fun. Probably the second best TCG game I've played. The GBC game was awesome. I just want a WiiWare/DSiWare game of it.

    Ahh... Good old Pokemon TCG on the GBC. Loved that game. Was the first game I had for the GBC.

    And Magic is a pretty kick@$$ game. I do wish there was a way to compress everything and make it fit on a DS cart... It's kinda inconvenient to carry around several decks with me at all times.

    The biggest gripe people have with pokemon(including myself) is they milk it to death,they release 2 games at a time and then milk you for a 3rd game with slighty added features such as more legends and what not,hey if you wanna buy/download the same game 3 times go for it.....

    ~Edit~

    The Pokemon anime doesn't rock by any means. Neither does the Yu-Gi-Oh one but still, the Pokemon anime isn't good.

    And I thought Yu-Gi-Oh cards weren't actually "real", they just projected some hologram or something when battling. That's what I remember as a kid.
