Favorite "Side Activity" of the Pokemon Video Games?

    The casinos, pokemon contests, pokestar studios, and more...

    There's been lots of side games in each generation of Pokemon!

    Which side games were your favorite and why?

    My favorite is contests. Because it's a fun way to use our pokemon in a non-contest way

    AgentKallus Regional variants are my jam.

    Whilst I'm not sure that contests are my favourite conceptually, they are my favourite in terms of execution.

    Contests just felt a lot more fleshed out than the other side activities. When contests reappeared in Sinnoh after debuting in Hoenn, I hoped that they had become a series staple that would continue to be present in the other games, sadly that was not the case. I preferred contests in ORAS than the earlier games TBH. I haven't actually tried pokestar studios yet but from what I know about it, it could be a close second after contests.

    Don't know if this counts as a side activity but finding all the unown forms would probably be mine.

    PokéAthlon. If only it didn't destroy my screen, i would be playing all the time.

    Mantine Surfing. Every other minigame bores me to sleep

    Digging for treasure in Diamond version. Just really had fun doing that.

    Definitely the Pokèathlon. Pokèstar Studios was fun to mess around with, too.

    Pokeathlon, Contests second. Pokeathlon was so much fun to do 'cause the activities were challenging and Contests had a good structure.

    When it comes to Contests, i think i probably prefer it's Super version. I liked dressing my pokémon and dancing with them.

    Just picking moves got a bit boring after some time, especially since a lot of the moves had the same effect. That is why i liked when they included other minigames.

    I also really loved the Underground, but some of the traps could be annoying. I think it's the best way ever for finding fossils. Wish they would do it again, even if a more simple version.
