How have you not fell out of love with Pokemon yet?

After the constant cutting corners, shitty products Gen after Gen, etc. Why haven't you put the franchise down?

    I appreciate the games and don't fine they are lazy, just that the genre is incredibly demanding
    Comparing pokemon to any other creature collection should make it obvious

    I only play Showdown because the gameplay still hasn't really been replicated elsewhere

    The only reason I come to this board is because I still find it incredibly funny to start flamewars and shitposting. Its easier than pretty much every other board, the underages here are insanely easy to rile up

    The 3D generation helped me understand these games were never good, but can always get worse. I’ve broken free of my Pokemania brand zombie programming. There are still good romhacks, fangames, and tons of porn. The official products are all dogshit and not worth even pirating.

    I did 15 years ago, picked it back up again with Legends: Arceus because my mum couldn't play it and I offered to complete the dex and send her the pokémon. Actually enjoyed it and I'm gonna play Scarlet once it's out.

      Autism and an interest in critter designs. I long accepted that the games are mid at best so I just play them casually

      That's sweet anon

    I'm still wondering. I know its gonna be shit so I don't have high expectations. I do look forward to the multiplayer side of SV, looks like a lot of fun with my friends

    I'm still enjoying the competitive aspect of the games so until that's no longer the case I'll continue to play this game for children.

    I liked all the games until SM. Took a break after that. Came back with PLA, and looking forward to other similar games.

    Series is not that terrible. Doomers should probably find other hobbies to kill time with.

    I still enjoy some of the side games and competitive.
    I’ve dropped everything else though. I dont think I’m even going to bother with the main story in SV based on what I’ve seen in the trailers.

    I did OP. Gen 6 was the start of my dissatisfaction with the franchise and SwSh was the breaking point for me. I'm actually quite glad because it made me go searching else where for better games, which in turn set me down a path of (mostly) indie game binges which is some of the most fun I've had with video games in such a long time.

    I just come here to shitpost, that's it. If I am to touch a Pokemon game its Gens 1-5 or romhacks. Everything else can fuck off.

    I did. Gen 5 was the first time this series went to shit. I just play romhacks of gen 3 now.

    Because I'm not a cynical gay and am still able to have fun with the games.
    Except BDSP. That was a genuinely awful experience.

    I have sort of. I like the world Pokemon builds up, there's so much flexibility with all of the Pokemon. It lets me tool fantastic worlds around it.

    Because I can, do, and currently am, replaying my favorites. Pokemon didn't always suck. Go back and replay your favorite game moron.

    I can still enjoy the games by playing fan mods/hacks which objectively make the games better. It's the lazy, greedy corporate side of TPC and Game Freak I've fallen out of love with, not Pokemon itself.

    Already did years ago. It helps that I was never obsessed with it in the first place and always had other stuff I liked better.

    I'm perfectly content playing games from before gen 7. I don't have the time I used to as a little shit so I won't run out of games for years to come as I work backwards. Currently 205 hours into B2W2 and probably have a good 50-75 hours of content/few months of periodic play left.
    I just had a hard time enjoying gen 7 because while I like a lot of what it had to offer, Alola felt puddle-deep. The simplified geography and the straight line routes/caves are a big part. I might just be a nostalgiafag, but I come to Pokémon to live in a little classic RPG graph paper world with random encounters and everything else people think is "outdated". That was the real reason I didn't buy SnS.

    Because my brain literally developed around the structure of pokemon. I played pokemon starting from the age of 4 and I didnt even play another video game until I was 10. It is the most familiar structure and has etched itself into my DNA. I fucking hate it. I hate this shitty cashcow franchise and I can only play gens 2 through 5

    The games are still fun to me and will remain that so long as they have the base amount of content. Pokemon uniquely offers

    - The variety of units
    - The depth/breadth of the battle system
    - The permanence offered by cross-game transfer
    - The general chill mood of mindless grinds but also higher stakes with online battles
    - The fuckhuge community

    No other game series would fill this position. No other game will let me have the same little creature from when I was 14 with me now I'm 30 across four generations of consoles while having dumb shit like shinies to hunt/grind for, online competitive battles, and fifty fucking layers to the battle system to make theory crafting this fun.

    Of course I have my complaints about the games, which I've discussed plenty with people. These games have plenty to criticize. But as long as a Pokemon game has a story, online battles, shinies, and some cute shit to do, I'll probably still get 100 - 200 hours out of it at least.

    The only way I see myself stopping is if they completely drop all form of transferring Pokemon to new games and/or permanently drop the mainline battle system.
