Why use the Wii u Pro controller instead of the gamepad?

I love the gamepad, I'm surprised it is a very comfy controller. Why do I need a pro controller?

Mulitplayer and/or battery life.

It's more comfortable for longer play sessions and if the game you're playing doesn't really use the screen on the gamepad then that's another reason to use the pro controller. Plus the battery life is approx 80 hours.

Is it rechargeable?

I have both but I use the GamePad when possible. I have it plugged it almost all of the time so battery life is not an issue for me. It functions the exact same as the Pro Controller so it's not like there are any benefits in favor of the Pro Controller. The GamePad is more versatile anyways and can provide more options for games.

These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

I use the Pro and Gamepad at the same time for CoD. its cool. You use the gamepad for mneu items, class switching, and scorestreaks.
