    Post Why do you play Pokemon?

    I'm pretty sure that there was already a thread for this but I'm not sure where it is. I'm just curious as to why people play Pokemon. It definitely is entertaining but what makes it stand out from other games?

    Because it's a relaxing, yet complex, signle player game.

    I started out playing pokemon red and blue. I also watched the anime back then too! The pokemon game series became somewhat addicting to me. I haven't played every single version, though I have had moments where I'm just like, "I really really wish I had some pokemon right now." Now I've made it my mission to finish my first pokedex, yah I got lazy before I ever finished one.

    Also, because I've already invested way too much time in it to just stop now.

    I've been playing since I was 9, so Pokemon is a pretty big part of my life. No matter how bad the designs get, I don't think they'll stop me from buying the main series games...because life without Pokemon is like pizza without cheese. And I can't live with either of those.

    5 IV Bagon with Dragon Dance
    5 IV Bulbasaur with Giga Drain
    Various HA Pokemon
    ...and much more...

    It's fun, adventurous, relaxing, yet fast paced, full of creatures based off of science fiction, irl animals, cryptids, supernatural creatures, and other things,plus it has a high variety of type matchups and creature abilities which makes it rather addicting. It is what keeps me from going insane, my hobby which keeps me all together mentally, by the grace of Jesus Christ. Not to mention the potential of it lasting for a few more decades, the idea of there being thousands of species makes my heart race. I've been a fan since '98, I was 8 and saw Kids WB play the first episode. I remember there being a yellow electric creature named Pikachu, and there being Spearows and other things, and it intrigued me. Being a mild autistic, once intrigued, I become a maniac...a Poke-Maniac...

    Haha, I know that it is really fun but I wonder, what if I find another game fun? Why is it that people find Pokemon the most fun. What makes it so special?

    I started playing because it was "in" at my school at the time. All my friends played it, but I had no idea what they were talking about. I wanted to know so I played Ruby (the newest at the time). I've been addicted to it ever since.

    Well, I can't say much more, it's because it's very entertaining and I got used to it, anyway.

    I have a lot of fun playing the games (when I don't, I simply stop playing).

    I wouldn't say Pokémon is better or more entertaining than other games I like, actually.

    It all happened when I was a wee boy. I defeated my first trainer. It was a trainer in Pokemon Stadium, I felt good playing it. But, the anime is the thing that actually pulled me into playing.

    I've always been a big fan of RPG's, particuarly earthbound and Final Fantasy 7-9, but I've never played an RPG like Pokemon. The customization is insane, even in the first gen, you choose what to catch, what to use, what moves to teach it, ect. It's just gotten better and more complex and I can really appreciate being a true RPG fan

    - Playing monotype/unevolved challenges are some other things I love to do about these games.

    Pokémon is like a drug, once you play it the first time, you just can't simply stop.
    ^ That is why.

    It's the same story line but the little changes over the generations and the new Pokemon that you see and the thrill of the battles never makes it the same. over the generations of games, that has become more evident as the storyline has expanded greatly with the introduction of extra features.

    It's still one of the better JRPGs out there, and it's still worthy of my time.

    I play because it's intriguing.
    I'm 22, and I still play, and I'll still play when I'm 32, and if it's still around, I'll be playing it when I'm 42.
