I remember kids playing Pokemon games way back in 1997, if I remember correctly there was 151 you had to catch to become a Pokemon Master. What makes the game so popular that it has managed to survive through the generations for almost 20 years?

I don't know. Now, our only resort is to bomb Nintendo since it'll take them about 30 years to go bankrupt now...

People just want to come back to their childhood. Me too. That's the reason why most players are 13-above 30 years old.

I think you are correct in your assesssment alohagirl22883, the new Pokemon Go game being on mobile and easy to access will make lots of gamers who remember Pokemon when they were a kid have a look at it for the nostalgia.

Poke Fans new and old are loyal to the franchise, like any other gaming series. The only exception is they've been around like longer than most, and thus has a greater fan base.

Can't wait for Sun & Moon though, like most Pokemon Fans. Even though the Pokemon aren't looking so good so far.

I remember the Pokemon trading cards all the kids had in the late 90's, are they some way connected to the video games or are they totally separate and just play like Top Trumps?

So the cards are totally useless if you play the video game? I thought they would at least be a way of getting information on the different characters which I presumed would be the same?

I think it helps that they haven't sold out completely on their original formula.
They have something that works and find ways to reinvent themselves without completely selling out.
Square got scared with the FF franchise and sold out and have completely lost their way, losing a lot of their hardcore fans in the process.

Once I replace my dead DSi I will buy a new one from this decade (lol) and bow to peer pressure and try one.
Any suggestions on which would be appreciated.

Thanx to Craizen for the sig, love ya babe, Hubby for the avi.

Pokemon was and I guess still is, a very popular series that an entire generation grew up watching. The late 80?s and mostly the 90?s kids. Also the Nintendo game version of pokemon in GameBoy handheld video game device are so popular that they are the second most sold video games in the world, right after Nintendo?s own Mario. So with such a huge fan following Pokemon Go can?t be anything but popular!

Now look at the other reasons why this game is skyrocketing in both Android and iOS

The Nostalgia!

Pokemon reminds its fans of all the good times they had watching the TV series and playing the games. Those times we can never get back but Pokemon Go is making a very decent attempt at rekindling that fire in us.
Our fantasy finally comes true!

As kids, many of us dreamed and dreamed that pokemon could have been there in our real life too. Pokemon Go has capitalized on that with their augmented reality version of the game. This is our chance to travel the world, catch pokemon and battle with other trainers! Our childhood dream fulfilled!
These are the reasons I can think of right now. I?d say if you watch the anime till the end of Hoenn region and also play pokemon crystal, emerald or leaf green the other reasons will become apparent to you
I play this perfect app at imoneyslots.com and it is great stuff

For me it's the nostalgia it brings. I bought most of the older pokemon films on either Blu-ray or DVD to replace my VHS tapes. Honestly I'm not all that into Pokémon Go but I'll play the portable game system versions any day.

I recently got back in to Pokemon but for competitive play. It is a lot more complex now then it was when I was a kid. All the natures, items, IVs, breeding, ect. ect. but it really keeps your brain sharp!

I am also in the similar search that why is Pokemon so popular? I think it includes all the features what children want especially the children below 14. Sometimes I am also going to watch it.

Because Pokémon is over twenty years old, so all the 20 yr old played the games when they were kids. Now it is nostalgic for them to play the games. Also, it?s just a family-friendly game, so adults like it too.
