    I play Pokemon because I like the game. There are no other reasons that I play Pokemon. It's like people who play CoD. They play it because they like it.

    I play it because I like the story line and it gives me something to work on when I am bored.

    I play it because I liked it back when I was in school. And back then, it helped me get over my parent's divorce. The game has gotten better over time. I just play it now for nostalgia, I guess. I learned lots of people my age play it too, so that's why I've still been playing.

    When people ask me why I play Pokemon, there are three main reasons:

    1) I love RPGs. And you get to pick from now more than 650 Pokemon in that RPG. And they all can be customized with over 30+ moves a piece.

    2) What other RPG can you create your own party and battle it out with friends?

    3) And with a few other exceptions, how the hell else can I train up a bunch of massive dragons to take over the world?!

    Agreed.
    Lets hope for a gen 6 shall we?

    I've been playing Pokemon since it came out in North America and I love it. Plain and simple. My life to this point would be dramatically different without Pokemon.

    It's kinda hard to say. Sure it's fun, but why? I must go back..back..back to the beginning. I started watching the TV show in the late 90's. I got the game because I wanted to have my own adventure. I still enjoy that adventure, so I still play the game.

    Why?

    Um...when I was...5, I discovered the Pokemon Anime. During Memorial Day, my buddy came over, bringing his DS (this was at age 7) and Pokemon DPPt. I looked at the screen and went, "HEY, THERE'S AN EMPOLEON IN THERE." So a few months later, I got my DS Lite, got PMD, played, was happy. Then I got HGSS. This game I loved. Auto-running...Awesome. It was just...so fun. I play Pokemon for no other reason than "it's fun". It's a way to make the anime realistic...in a pixely way.

    I play it because of the adventure. In the beginning, I just wanna pit Pikachu vs Sandshrew due to the cartoon show. It was like, so much possibly. I thought there was only 150 pokemon in existence and only 150. Oh how naive I was. Then came the 2nd generation and the possibility has gotten larger. I was pitting 1st generation against 2nd generation in pokemon stadium. Then the 3rd generation came out. The fourth generation, and 5th generation. I don't think I'll ever stop playing.
    Come visit my pokemon.


    Pokemon Amie! YAAAAAY!!

    I play Pokemon because since I was 4 years old when the first episodes came out, I loved it, now even though I'm 18, Pokemon still strives to deliver one of the best rpg experiences ever XD I also play because it is highly addictive :P

    I guess I'm playing Pokémon because it was the first video game I've ever played.
    And I think it's the first game I've ever played because I liked the anime as little kid.

    Perhaps its the fact its the one rpg I can actually play for hours on end and not get sick of it (and also the first video game I played as a kid). Its also probably the fact that pokemon is the one series that seems untainted by the scourge of modernity and that its not dark, depressing, in the cold, cruel, and unforgiving world.

    I play pokemon because of the pokemon... There are so many choices to make your team with, and pretty much any team will be able to beat the game. It makes it so much less linear than a standard RPG (even though pokemon's story is always linear), because different people always have trouble with different gyms/elite 4 members, etc.
    Also the multiplayer aspect is awesome. It's great to have other people who play the game with you to trade with and brag to.

    I like Pokemon because it is fun. I like the idea of living in a world full of these animal that have powers and having them battle to see whose the best.
