I still enjoy the anime when it's good. Unfortunately that's something that is few and far between.
The Pokemon Adventures manga is mostly fun. I enjoy re-reading the Red, Blue and Green, the Yellow, and the Gold, Silver and Crystal storylines, and so far I am enjoying reading the Hoenn series as it comes out here in the UK. But I find the Diamond, Pearl and Platinum and the Black and White series to be a lot less enjoyable.
The games are okay for the most part, but the deeper storylines, although nice, don't really make it so that you can replay the games so... is easily the word I'm looking for? Perhaps "readily"? Yeah that's it - you can't play through repeatedly as readily as you once did. And it sort of feels like the competative battles can get too involved. It's disheartening to find after completing the HeartGold storyline that the Ursaring that you've been training ever since it was a level 22 Teddiursa, and who has helped you win many in-game battles would in fact be worthless in the competative battling arena. Then I have a choice - on the one hand I could spend hours breeding from Ursaring and hatching the resultant eggs until I get one with everything perfect, then spend hours leveling it up, teaching it exactly the same moves as everyone else teaches theirs, and then do a bit of competative battling. On the other hand, there are other franchises that I like, there are TV shows to watch, films to see, books to read, sights to be seen, I could stand to lose a couple of pounds, and I have a dog and a cat that actually give affection back..... yeah, I think I'll just stick with the standard playthrough, thanks.
