No matter when you started getting into the Pokémon franchise, there's a reason we all love it. There's also a reason we all keep coming back.
So tell me, why do you keep buying Pokémon games and products? Even when something happens that you don't like, or there's a Generation you don't play, what makes you come back to play the games?
Personally, for me, it's a mix of nostalgia and the fact that Pokémon is so unique. It's a massive franchise with a wonderous fanbase, and everything about it is so different to me. Even though I didn't like Gen 5, it redeemed itself, there's just nothing out there like Pokémon.
