Because I like it.

I stop playing eventually until the next game out but I replay the game more often and don't get bored as quickly as other games.
I've also been playing since the start so I'm already adjusted to it, it follows the same formula so I have no reason to stop, some don't like games doing the same thing all the time, I do though. Despite following the same formula each game comes out with something new, and having been playing from the start I enjoy seeing how Pokemon evolves itself.
I've also watched the Anime so I have the franchise in my mind more overall compare to games that only have the games to go off of.
Plus the type of game Pokemon is, I don't really know any other kind of games out there that are like it, all I can think of is Digimon and some other game that I don't know the name of and the former seems to have died down and the latter I haven't played since I was a little kid and don't really know what it's condition is. Pokemon is also a game that really anyone can play, it's targeted towards little kids but anyone can play it so long as they have an interest in the type of game. Other games have a smaller audience be it for little girls, boys, teens, adults, etc...So games like that only last for so long for a person, Pokemon lasts forever.
Pokemon is simply one of the few games that I can play and enjoy throughly, one I'll be able to enjoy forever, one I don't need to worry about taking a drastic change in formula(Having the side games helps this out as they can keep the same formula for the main games and do different things for the side games), one that I've been playing since the start and want to continue to play until the dead I or it dies(Hoping for that latter as I don't want to miss a generation D: )
Pokemon just worked for me.
