I get what you mean. Trust me in that Omega Ruby and Moon are great (the former may be first game bias but still they're awesome) and I have no idea for Blue since I gave up on my Red copy ages ago. As someone who got used to the more fluid later games I can't get into the old ones.
If I'm really honest I had to go on the Wikia page for the game after I finished it just so that I could make sure I had got my facts right. It was crazy but I loved it. And yeah, attractive guy does a sword fight. I suggest you look it up on YouTube or something, it's a very good cutscene with a very pretty man. Also YESSSS they are so immersive, like I didn't mean to finish off Pandora's Box in four days but I did because I played it into the night because I didn't want it to end.
On another note though, the iPad spinoff is like really different to the main series (there aren't even any logic puzzles, but instead you get to search through 3D crime scenes and stuff) but it still has an amazing plot with amazing characters. It was acually my first exposure to the series aneat if you have a tablet I'd recommend it!
