Pokemon is a poorly constructed franchise based around an overly simplistic rpg element and poor narrative.

it is successful because of the nostalgia it generates and the feeling that is created y you guys that having this game s vital to knowing anything about gaming. It isn't.

If you like nostalgia so much to sacrifice any acknowledgement of fledgling gamers of better quality then I just hope that no one listens to you. Otherwise the future of hand held gaming is going to stay stuck in its mind set, producing rehashes of massively overrated games such as Mario, Pokemon and (shiver) Sonic...

The mindless fanboy culture that seem to breed in this petri dish forum is honestly disturbing...
I can only hope that some of the inventiveness shown on the iphone and within indie PC games is able to filter through. Otherwise you are going to witness the death of handheld gaming as it is viewed purely as for old school fanboys and for primary school games like the "imagine" series.

Such trash should not be supported look at yourself as you play through pokemon again and ask yourself, "Am I actually enjoying playing this?"

I just did what you suggested and I came back with "Yes I am actually enjoying playing this." I'm not a fanboy the only pokemon game I have ever played is Pearl, but I do find these games useful for passing time before I have a uni lecture.

Believe it or not, some people, myself included like playing Pokemon. There's even a whole competitive battling community. This competitive battling is helping keep the game's success.

Hahahahaha!
Man, how old are you? Also pokemon is a timeless classic. You may look at it and find nothing that you like, but when i actually started to play it again i was amazed by how complex the game was.
What is a ds game that you think is much better or the best?

What about all the little kids who play Pokemon now? Some weren't even born when the Pokemon craze first began.
And yes I do enjoy playing the games.

P.S. Was I the only one who thought this topic was going to be a suggestion on how to bypass the Anti-piracy?

Please use proper English to make a point. Now if it was just the nostalgia aspect that is holding this game up, explain the new generations and new fans?

Did you just call Mario overrated?

Part of my point was that the current games (the remakes) are in fact no more fun than the originals.
The battling community, I take your point, but really doesn't it become kinda the same, my friends and I had quickly worked out the combinations that would win and which pokemon where worth having. I played through pokemon blue 4 times, (red+yellow once each as well) . In all honesty I disliked silver and gold, mainly because I felt they were a let down, but I realise almost all would disagree with me.

As for playing before uni lectures, fine, but I prefer other games, I have no problem with people playing them, what upsets me is the seemingly blind and gulible mobs of people that surround some of the older games ( In all honesty I think mario is the worst, (not inc. galaxy)) for this. I mean I would draw parallels between Mario fanboys and Mac fan boys (who are unbelievable) .

Although the actual pokemon anime is becoming a piece of crap, the games are a great enjoyment and you can get a lot of fun out of them. I'd say that they're overdoing it with the amount of pokemon however the games are still incredibly fun and passes the time quite well.

sorry but this guy really pissed me off
this thread is pointless... he only want to disturb fans
He created a new acount only because he cant say that with his real user (He has only 3 post)

I think that this should be closed...
