It just seems to me that everyone only likes Pokémon because of Pokémon GO, I don't play it because of personal reasons, but I would prefer the the console games and such over Pokémon GO, but its the closest thing anyone could get to real Pokémon with the tech we have today, so, point is, almost everyone likes Pokémon GO and doesn't know play any other Pokémon game besides that, its so sad to me, but it doesn't really matter because, if you like something, you like something, and the game might be fun, Idk I've never played it

From the rooftop she came… and pulled out her tablet…📱
Took a look through my old card box (has a bunch of old pokemon tcg, Star Wars CCG, and Magic the Gathering cards). Consulting wikipedia, it seems I collected pokemon TCG cards between the base release and the Neo Genesis expansion.
I'll just mention the foils I picked up at the time.
Fallout and Mass Effect are 100% "western" action RPGs.
The main line pokemon games have turn-based combat and are distinguished by their creature capturing mechanic, roster management, cool monsters, and light tone (personally, I got put off JRPGs when the genre turned into one big angst fest). But as the above poster noted, not everyone is into the anime art style.
So to that end, some pokemon fan art I've come across illustrated in alternate art styles:
There is actually a quite a bit of this kind of fan art out there.
Finished Pearl, X and Alpha Sapphire and have played Red, Heartgold, Platinum and Black out of the main games, and have finished Mystery Dungeon Blue, Ranger: Shadows of Almia and Ranger: Guardian Signs from the spin-off games.
Honest to god i have no idea how i ever chugged through 3 whole main pokemon games, which have some of the most BORING gameplay ever. I've simply come to accept that the main Pokemon games are my guilty gaming pleasures since i know they do not have good gameplay but play them anyway.
But the Ranger games were awesome (maybe not the first one, that didn't age so great) and i would love for a new one of those to come out.
And regarding Pokemon GO, i haven't even touched that thing, simply because at no point during it's popularity did i have a compatible phone on which to play it.
Well, Pokemon was a large part of my childhood. I think the first game that I played was Firered/Leafgreen and I played all the main Pokemon games up till Black and White.
I really enjoyed the spinoff games as well, particularly Mystery Dungeon and the Ranger series. I hope they continue to release more of those spinoff games in the future and not just keep pumping out more games from the main series.
