Don't forget the miniskirts.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I wish they would push some more originality into their games.

Eight Gyms.
Elite Four (Of which there are never actually four of.)
A caring mother
The starter town being named after a sort of sapling plant
The professor named after a tree
Legendary Pokemon
An evil team with tacky names.

And plenty more similarities.

It sells.

I'm pretty ok with doing the same thing over and over and over and over again. I played WoW end-game for nearly a year. I've fought the same damn dragon Onyxia every Wednesday since November '05 till I quit in August (1 to 2 hour raid). I did Molten Core every Wednesday, Friday, and Saterday for the same amount of time (anywhere between 4 to 6 hours a night). Zul'Gurub, Ahn'Qiraj, and BWL various times during the whole perioud (no less then 3 hours a night) on off night raid days. Not to mention all the smaller dungeons which could take a couple hours each various since I started the game in June '05.

Trust me. I'm used to seeing the same damn thing more times then anyone needs too...

But If I could, I'd go back to WoW in a heartbeat. And I guess that's how I feel about the pokemon games too.

Here's a VG Cats Comic.

Hehe. I'd buy that.

Grand Theft Auto: Pokemon (or one of the area names. Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, or whatever that new one is called)

I was with Bastardman until the pistol whipping at the end I mean shooting Prof Bob fair enough you dont have pokemon yet and your not in the main game but after that eveything is settled with poke battles and having pokemon lay it down on dealers is great you battle them 1st and in stead of them running away like girls once you bea them you then get the opurtunity to decide do turn your own pokemon on trainer as well?

trainers that you send to the burns unit from flamethrower attacks or maybe cut them up with a razorleaf or my favorite a psycic attack that turns them into vegitables where they live out the rest of there lives locked in a padded room in the fetal postions repeting the words "I choose you zubat"

Ash would be one of the drugges on the street who sells his pokemon for pot. Except pikachu because he is Ash's lover.

You'll never know why.

Yeah, in the fifth generation, they should have it that the main character is a 16-year-old kid whose alcoholic single mother is having a clandestine affair with the local Pokemon authority, Professor Bob (I still think that there was something going on between Ash's Mom and Prof. Oak, but that's another story). Little does our hero know that Bob is actually a member of the Yakuza, who fill the Team Rocket position for this game, and that the entire Pokemon League is being run by them behind the scenes.

Eventually, you'll find out about Bob's involvement with both the Yakuza AND your mother, and you'll shoot him dead in a fit of self-righteous rage, right in front of your mother's eyes. In tears, she tells you to leave town before she calls the cops on you, and you steal a ball from Bob's Pokeball belt, containing one of the three starters (because some traditions must remain intact) and flee. Throughout the game, you'll be given the choice of taking bribes from Yakuza members to lose Pokemon battles, and as you progress through the league and become more of a threat you'll have to battle against Yakuza hitmen who use Pokemon other than Zubat, as well as the police who are trying to hunt you down for the murder of Professor Bob.

On arriving at the league, you'll actually have to battle OTHER qualifying trainers before the Elite 4, because somehow more than one person (!) managed to beat the gyms and qualify for the League this time. Oh, and there'll be spectators and news crews too. Basically, the Pokemon League will be more than just five big empty rooms at the end of a cave filled with stationary trainers whose only ambition is to stop you and piss you off without ever actually reaching the League themselves.

If and when you finally beat the Pokemon League, the game won't end, because your guy will realise that it's a hollow victory - the entire sport of Pokemon battling is corrupt, so to put an end to it, you join the Japanese police and attempt to hunt down the crime lords. During this post-game Gold-and-Silver's-Kanto-equivalent portion of the game, you pistol-whip pimps and drug dealers until you've finally worked your way up to the top of Japan's leading crime syndicate, AND BECOME A POKEMON MASTER.

If and when you finally beat the Pokemon League, the game won't end, because you'll whistle for a cab, and when it comes near. The license plate'll say fresh and it'll have dice in the mirror. If anything you could say can say this cab is rare, but you'll think 'Now forget it' and jack the cabbie, running him over as you drive off.

Sorry if this has been answered on one of the other 38 pages, but what's the difference going to be between diamond and pearl?

Thinking back, pokemon was a damn fine game once you strip away all the marketing and juvenile stuff.

This is the greates game pitch I have ever heard Bastardman.  I salute your great idea for redefining a series going into stagnation.  If only more people thought in this way we may not have to experience rehashes of the same gameplay with a different name and better graphics.  Its ideas like this that if Nintendo would go with, we would have many quality mature oriented games for all of us that can handle the gritty realties of the world could enjoy.

I looked around and stumbled on some MIDIs already made of the game. Some of them were battle themes titled with a "Team Galaxy" in the song name. Could this be the evil organization that plays Team Rockets part in this game?
