Somehow they take the tried and tested RPG groundwork and throw in an addictive collect-a-thon quest that keeps you hooked for ages. Is it the simple nature of Pokemon that keeps us playing the game over and over again even it is marginally different from the predecessor? But surely the over-a-decade series has to show signs of age at some point."
