    Pokemon is really a full entertaining character for me that not only helps me to have complete enjoyment but makes me fresh and energetic after lowering my stress level. I love watching its videos and playing its latest games as well.

    For me it's b/c I know the characters really well. And I'm curious about their story in the new region, especially b/c I play the games, I want to know how the new game characters portrayed in the anime.
    I don't watch pokemon that regular though.

    Because its entertaining and brings childhood memories back. Pokemon is a constantly enjoyable franchise for anyone.

    For me, it's also a link to the past.

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    I agree to this, it's something that every part of the franchise does to me.. Whenever I see a new set of tradingcards attached to a magazine in the supermarket magazine rack, I always find myself obligated to buy the darn magazine, just to see how the tcg is at nowadays, since I collected the original set when it came out.. -.-

    Same with the animé, when Ash caught Sewaddle, I for one, had a huge Caterpie flashback, started replaying LeafGreen (I will never touch my Red and Silver ever again due to fear of corruption since I 100% completed them), admittantly now as a Nuzlocke Challenge, but still! Something so small, can have a pretty darn large impact on me. So yeah, naturally when I check this site I have a full fledged relapse.. -.-

    To be fair now they've gotten a lot quicker. If you look at for example when the episode Hoenn Alone was aired, there was an eleven month gap between airings in Japan and America, and even more so for us folk in the UK. Now the anime in Japan is 16 episodes ahead and the BW2 games are just a few months between releases.

    I watch it because it brings back memorys of older seasons. ie. 2006,2008

    I still watch Pokemon because it resonates with me. Who wouldn't want to go out and start their own adventure with a Pikachu on their shoulder? People may say "You're too old for Pokemon" but I find that semi-idiotic as deep-down, everyone knows that having actual Pokemon would be literally the coolest freaking thing that ever happened.

    I watch to be a proud Pokemon Fan, also watch it cause I enjoy it. Half of the time, I keep asking myself after the season is done. What is the next shipping or what is the next region to be discovered and what new Pokemon that will be unfolded. Season 1-Advance are still my most favorite seasons.

    It's like reviving my childhood and it's and interesting anime mainly because of all the overanalyzes it suffers.

    Nostalgia, memories, childhood revival and other stuff, I'm still interested in Pokemon because it entertains me. ^_^ my college room-mate is a huge fan of Pokemon games (not so much of the anime, only the OS xD) and we talk about it lol however many of my school friends left the anime after the OS or AG ended, I think I'm the only one that keeps watching after so many years.

    SilverLanayru It's a mystery.

    I continue to watch Pokemon because it is one of the very first animes I grew up with (same with the games, although I didn't get into the games until Gen II). It also brings back a nostalgic feel whenever I watch older seasons and movies of Pokemon. I also like to let my imagination run wild as I watch, wondering what will happen next, where the journey will take us, etc. xP You're never too old to remain as a Pokemon fan at heart. It truly is a link to the past for me, too. :]

    Yep! Despite all the Liberal Propagana and teachings and of course the dumbing down (we don't want to offend anyone) I still watch it for the battles.

    Nyarth That's right!

    I still watch Pokemon because I love it. I've been watching it since season 1 and I'll never stop.
