Does it have Pokemon in it, and are those Pokemon cool? Yes? Congrats! It's a great Pokemon game. That is, at least if we're talking main-series games.

A good Pokemon game is a Pokemon game.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Lots of interesting pokemon (new and old), the more the better.

Interesting story (or back-story/lore etc).

Interesting region with lots of places to explore.

Attention to detail, just simple things like how the modern games keep track of the ball that was used to catch a pokemon. Also, how gen 5 recognized the custom pokeballs from HG and SS.

Customization looks like it will be good also.

I think Black and White were the best Pokemon games. I have not played Black 2 or White 2 though.
What I liked about them and made me think of them as great was the story and the presentation. Things unfolded in cool ways. I thought N was very cool, and the enemy team was cool but kind of predictable. Meeting gym leaders outside of gyms was pretty cool, too.
Having not terrible ways to grind before the elite four was nice, too (Audino).

And the environments were all cool. And the two rivals were both awesome.
I do not disagree that the Pokemon do play a significant part, but I am a person who has been pleased with all of the designs since generation one, so that has never been an issue for me. And because that has never been an issue for me, I believe the things... "trimmings" I guess, are what truly make the difference between a good Pokemon game and a great one.
