Not really. They give the fans what they want. They milk the hell out of the series but I still really enjoy most of the games.

Highly doubtful, Aegis. The series has been going for a long time now and just recently, Sunday, February 27, 2011 was the 15th anniversary of Pokemon in Japan. I still enjoy the series as well, even though I'm just about to be 21.5. :P

The franchise is good enough to keep its fans hooked.  ;)

I'd say that the pokemon series are the best rival to the mario series, even if they are in the same company.

OBJECTION!

Honestly, I think that the Ghosts series was the worst series of all time.

Yeah, it is a little too much and most of the Pokemon from the new generations don't compare to Kanto and Johto.  But I don't mind, Pokemon is Pokemon and I will always love it.

There are 649 pokemons.

And I love the series. :P

What the hell? <_<

Back to the topic, it's certainly not the best of RPs IMO, but it certainly isn't among horrible franchises. (tries to think of something... come tell me later)

The level grinding is incessantly painful, tbh. :p

It's a shame to RPs everywhere.

Like modern Final Fantasies.

Pssh, I love Pokemon. You have a wide variety of Pokemon to choose from and a bunch of moves to each them. I somewhat enjoy level grinding in this game than other RPGs to an extent.
Title: Re: Isn't this the worst franchise of all time??
Post by: Starlit Midnight on March 01, 2011, 07:56:36 PM
Wide variety = Basically the same types over and over

Who the **** cares what people think of Pokemon. Let them hate it how they want.

Tha said, I've poured thousands of hours into Pokemon in my life and would rank it as the best franchise ever. DK, Mario and the rest can suck me in comparison

Nobody I know IRL even talks about Pokemon anymore. Nor do I see many discussions of it on forums these days.

No, they're not a bad franchise. They have started to get stale, though. The worst franchise is Duel Masters. =P

The only thing people would ever bring up is like Pokemon from 2000 or something like that, other than flashbacks its not really talked about.

I almost kept going when I realized there was over 5 more on the mention of "balls" that did not contain Jelly (or the jacking off statement above) because that's already 14 more mentions than my two of "Jew" and any kind of spelling of.
