Pokemon is basically about catching these monsters and "training" them to become strong. For me, the use of sprites, the top-down perspective, the "going on your very own adventure", and there being so many creatures to catch are all elements that contribute to the appeal of the series thus far (though X & Y seem to be able to retain that charm while stepping it up aesthetics-wise with cell shaded models). The nostalgia and the attachment I made with the anime in my childhood makes the experience even better, but nostalgia aside, they're still objectively really solid games with a ton of replay value. Seriously. I can't think of another series out there that does it better.
