Anyone thinking about skipping the next Pokemon game?

Not the Sapphire/Ruby remake, but the next generation.

Let me say this first, I love Pokemon. I'm 26 and I still love it. Heck, I even dressed up as Ash Ketchum at an anime convention in my early 20's, can any of you say that?

That being said... the games are so easy. The last 2 games I had to force myself to finish because of how easy they were. I don't mind the countless trainers throughout the journey to be easy/xp fodder, but the gym leaders, E4 and the Champ are so simplistically easy.

I just figured out that yes, these games are for kids. Games for kids aren't bad, I still love them, but the difficulty is for kids. In an RPG/collecting game where there is little to no story or character development, where the battle/leveling up/raising your Pokemon is not really needed except for the meta-game, it's hard to find it enjoyable.

I wish they included a difficulty choice or instead of 2 versions that are simple Pokemon swaps, made an adult and everyone version... one can dream.

I will most likely end up buying it, as usual, but its definitely not in my top 10 series anymore (Of all time maybe). It's almost a chore to play now.

Not unless I drop out of Pokemon for the third time.

Not skipping because the games are fun and I like the competitive/multiplayer aspect over the story section that is intended for very young children.

Depends on my interest for them, like you, I had to force myself to beat the games the last two generations. Hell, I still don't even know over half of the Gen V Pokemon, even with pictures. Hopefully OR/AS can reignite the feeling I had once before.

i would still play it though i do wish for a "more mature" story to go with it

my bigger problem is I wish there was a greater diversity in pokemon in earlier parts of the game; or make a meaningful post-E4 game so you can use your best team for something rewarding

The story parts of the game are made for children.

Also we just had a story that was about limited resources and mass murder.
