What's so special about catching them all?

Like I don't get it. Anyone mind explaining or something? I just see it as a big waste of time.

Its a goal thats farfetched, but just reachable enough for people to bother going for it. And it extends your playtime by hundreds of hours.

I always thought the point of catching them all was so I could use them all, as I make a large number of teams (usually type or theme based).

the same question can apply to everything that people collect.
You cant compare RE5 to Dead Space, its like comparing a broken SDTV to brand new HDTV.

Why not? Getting them all (especially legit) is a big accomplishment that takes time.

Just like any other collecting hobby that a person could have...

I think now there is actually a purpose for this. In Black2/White2 anyway, if you completed the Unova Dex you got an item that increased the odds of finding a shiny.

EDIT: Looked it up instead of guessing at it:

If you SEE all of the Unova pokedex, you get access to an area where you can find loads of rare pokemon, including a shiny Haxorus.

If you CATCH all Unova pokemon, you get an item that increases the rate at which the Day Care man finds eggs.

If you CATCH EM ALL (not counting event legends), you get an item that increases shiny pokemon encounter rate by about 33%.
