What's so addicting about Pokemon to you?

How each Pokemon has its own perks and individual strategies.

Nothing. I didnt even finish black 2. It lost its appeal with black and white. I'm kind of impartial now to X and Y.

I'm a completionist when it comes to RPGs, so having so many things (mainly Pokemon) to collect, with virtually nothing being missable (missables are my bane!) is very, very appealing to me.

I'm also a bit of a perfectionist, so being able to raise up a Pokemon to be better than the vast majority of its species is also very interesting. Just wish IVs would die already...

The main quest is usually pretty fun and enjoyable as well. It's just a shame that you can only experience it once unless you erase your file...

I also love that, being a monster-raising game, there's a huge number of options and combinations for your party members. Having a customizable party in one way or another is a huge draw for me.

Then, of course, there's competitive multiplayer. Very fun, and it gives you more motivation to raise some kickass Pokemon stomp other people's.

The atmosphere and the serendipitious spread of bliss that comes with filling up as much of the PokeDex as possible. I couldn't care less for the battling aspect.

Collecting and raising the Pokemon. There's something about turning a weak critter into a beast of destruction that feel very nice.
