At least it ain't milked by Capcom. *shudders*


Mega Man has spin-offs that have more sequels than there are main-line Pokemon games.

Of course, so does Mario. (Mario also had a break-fast cereal, multiple Saturday Morning cartoons, a feature-length live action movie, bed sheets, underwear, etc. and that's just in North America - it's probably even crazier in Japan.)

Yes.


No. The hate on Cod is pathetically unfounded on this board.
Pokemon IS Milked much more then your average franchise.

Everyone flocks to Fennekin because it isn't a Fire/Fighting.

I'm going to Chespin. Froakie looks too derpy to me.

Yes. CoD is milked whether or not you want to admit it. At the very least Pokemon is good.

Spinoffs maybe but main titles CoD is far more milked.

They released a Vita Port of Blops that was downright ridiculous to play. It had to be bundled with a Vita to actually sell.

Pokemon is very milked. But why not? There are plenty of people who love the series and it gives money to develop other games.

I'm the Dragon Reborn, your argument is invalid.

Okay, I posted a reasonable response, and the topic is about to breach 50 posts.

Can I haz derail permission?


So which starter are you guys using? I think fennekin looks good but I feel Chespin will end up with the best 3rd stage


I don't know. I like all 3, but I want to see the final evos first.

Me too. If the final form of Fennekic is a Fire Fighting type, then EVERYONE will jump ship to Chespin and Froakie. Not even debatable at this point.
