Hey it's true though, the games are never released apart from each other, never advertised alone. They are pretty much the same game no matter how you look at it.


Sold as 2 seperate games.

Good to know that "making Nintendo more money than if they released only one version" is not something that should be considered, at all. It is impossible for Nintendo to make the same amount of money with only one version; they wouldn't have sold nearly as well with only one.


Well honestly with this set up it just works, Pokemon is a pretty big social game in a sense of trading and battling. Would be pointless not to have two different versions of the same game. Hell even the 3rd games tend to require you to need one of the other games.

But hey there is no denying that the series is milked, but main games not so much compared to other main games in other series.

Ponies do more than learn about friends.

They also eliminate cancer.

This board gets trolled so easily.

Pathetic, no one even tries to put thought into their topics anymore because it's just that easy these days.

We're getting good games out of it.

in your opinion. I think the series has a lot of room for improvement and innovation.


Could you care to share some of your ideas for innovation? Because saying that without providing suggestions just comes off as whining, really.

So, did Mario suddenly stop existing? Because I'm pretty sure Nintendo milks his platformers more than Pokemon.

What, with SMB1 ported to everything.
