Title says it all. Created this thread because I'm pretty sure the old one died out.

Anyway, I like Pokémon because of the strategy invlved, the story (which is IMO very good in basically all games), character/Pokémon design, and just on how prettyful the art, landscape and areas of the games/anime/manga are.

NOTE: as side discussion, also include why people would play it, so as this thread can be merged easily with similar threads.
