I don't know, sometimes the games feel a little boring/repetitive and I wonder why I'm playing it, but it's enough, really. It's often fun, and the boringness is usually from WILD POKEMON ENCOUNTERED RATTATA/LILLIPUP/ZIGZAGOON/POOCHYENA/BIDOOF. That or constant battling which can get kind of dull. But it's a fun series, which I plan on continuing to get games of. (The main series ones anyway.)
