Yeah, I've never really played Pokemon. I have the Rumble one on Wii U and tried a few of the others on emulators over the years, but never long enough to form a bond with the game.
I can see why people go nuts for it though, but just can't help feeling like I would get a little bored. My girlfriend is pretty addicted too it though, got her a copy of X for her birthday and she's been playing it non-stop! :)
One thing that im glad they fixed is the battle animations. That was something severly lacking from previous titles and made the game look even simplar than what it was from a graphical perspective. It's nice you can see your attacks happening in real time now.
Hmmmm... Still on the fence, so many good games to play at the moment! O_o
