Why The Ending of Every Pokémon Game Is Garbage

You go through the trouble of collecting all 8 badges and defeating the Elite Four—and in some cases, sometimes you even try to catch them all. But what for? Pokémon games sometimes treat you rather poorly after doing all that work, when you think about it. (3DS, Industry, Nintendo DS)

In all fairness, plot is not really Pokemon's forte. :P

Aren't they all about the Journey and not the ending ?

I've only played a bit of Black and a fair amount of X, but it seems to me the main draw is the combat system. Virtually everything else is affectation.

They could remove the JRPG trappings and make it an Armored Core-style arena game, and I don't think it would lose much of its appeal.

I don't think they play for the ending...

They play for the breeding. all of that glorious breeding.

Pretty sure no one plays for the story...or at least I don't. The main goal for me is to beat the game, create my ideal team, play online/local, and catch all the Pokemon.

The Pokémon games have always had a simple formula, even the anime, which despite having numerous stories - at its core, it is simple: catch all the Pokémon in the world and become a Pokémon master.

Don't forget Pikachu getting kidnapped and rescued from Team Rocket who's always blasting off.

Remember to vote down shitty stories, folks (and not to approve them in the first place!).

Why is this a shitty story?

This is Kotaku reposting a comic from Dorkly; and Dorkly reposted the comic from Nerd Rage (its source).

Not only does it fill N4G up with rubbish stories, it's also highly unethical, as in this case there are two separate parties monetizing content they don't own the rights to.

Uh wut? Pokemon doesn't have an ending. It forever runing game no end to it.

It was always about the "gotta catch em all" for me.

In the ideal Pokemon game you should be able to become a gym leader or the champion of the elite four and battle trainers.
I think it should also let you take other roles like Ash's friends in the anime, breeder, photographer, conservationist.
