Judging by the fact everyone on YT emulates the games, sales would go way up if it were on Steam.
I feel like the sprite based mostly 2Dish graphics used by the pokemon series is a better fit for handhelds. When I think of PC RPGs, I think of more complex graphics and full on 3D animation. Part of Pokemon's charm is its art style.
Also, I like being able to take the games anywhere and play them in small bite sized bits. Having to boot a computer and load a game everytime I wanted a battle would not lend itself well to the current pick up and play style. All in all, I feel it would change what Pokemon is about.
No way. Pokemon should just stick to handhelds. Some spin off games are good for home consoles, but not for PC's.
So I guess keyboards aren't really competition XDD
Why not? There are a lot of in-PC features that the games would be able to utilize. Say, faster internet (therefore making more networking activities possible) and bigger memory (the limited memory of the DS cartridge did hinder things somewhat).
Though if it does happen, I'd like it to be significantly different from the console-based games. Have it still follow the core concept, the journey, and change things a bit. Maybe add a battling style closer to the one in the anime? Integrate the trainer? There are possibilities.
Still, I really don't see this happening. The reason why Pokémon has never been released on a non-Nintendo platform is because Nintendo knows the immense value of the franchise. It knows that keeping it exclusive will only do good. It will make people buy the consoles and stuff.
I voted yes. PC monitors are big and it would be awesome to see Pokemon so much bigger than on the weenie screen on the consoles. Also, when a Pokemon game came out that was for a new Gen, you wouldn't have to buy a newer console to play it on.

They should definately have portable games but i'd love it if the next Stadium game would be on the PC.
It'd require a massive overhaul/expansion not to run out of end-game content, or get too linear. I wouldn't enjoy the current mainseries in front of a computer weren't it loaded with online features on the scale of today's mmorpgs, possibly with the bonus of a real-time 3D battle system
(although the amount of pokémon to animate is reaching impossible).

Pokémon games - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia
Pokemon Project Studio - not really a game, it's a craft app

Pokemon PC Master - not a game, it's a Japanese exclusive computer usage tutorial

The Sega games are all edutainment titles for the Pico.
In my opinion, there would be something deeply wrong about a main series Pokemon game on anything other than a Nintendo handheld.
It's simply the way it is supposed to be.
Pokemon will stay on the handhelds... Game Freak is owned by Nintendo and they are not going to let one of the big-3 (Mario, Pokemon, Legend of Zelda) be on another system

Rather for it to be on a console. I can't find a way to explain it but I rather for it to be with the console.
If I mean main-series game, Game Freak never make Pokémon games for PC because they prefer making games for Nintendo handhelds. But if I mean side-series games, the PC-formats never happen except if a video game manufacturer has "borrowed" Pokémon licensing. This is a licensing issues, and I never argue about that.
If there were to be games on PC< they shouldn't be games like there are on the GBA/DS. The games should be more of a stadium game
