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.

The story is too old to be commented.

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.
