    Default I Don't Catch Them All

    I've been a huge fan of Poke'mon since the beginning, but I never really had the desire to capture every poke'mon. I mean, I'll capture them when I find one I think is cool-looking, or maybe could be useful, but I never thought I had to capture all of them.

    Simply, I play for fun, and when I collect the eight badges and defeat the Elite Four, I feel like I completed the game. Does anyone else feel that way? Please, share your thoughts/opinions.

    I feel kind of similar. I don't feel the need to catch every Pokemon, I just like completing the storyline, and post game storyline, as then I feel like I've accomplished a lot. I also enjoy it, but trying to catch every Pokemon would just take so long, and be boring and tedious. For me.

    I feel the same way. I just play the games to have fun.

    I prefer playing somewhat more competitively, catching the most Pokémon as possible, completing side-quests, getting all the items...
    Now that I started playing Platinum, I'll most likely try to win first place in the Contests too. That's how I like to play.

    I play just to beat it in a low time, while having fun along the way.

    MP is good too in real life, wifi isn't as good as playing with people in real life.

    I don't play competitively or care about finishing the Pokedex, I just play for pure enjoyment.

    I used to just play it through to the Elite Four, but after getting Soul Silver I started playing it on my commute (1 hour there and 1 hour back on the bus = plenty of gaming time). It actually kept me sane and I didn’t want to ‘complete’ the game, I wanted to keep going – so I played through all the others and, in doing so, was able to complete my pokedex. I have a car now, so I don’t think I would do it again (well, I’ll try in B&W since I’ll pretty much just have to complete the Unova dex, save for pre-evolved forms), but if you’ve got the time to do it then it’s pretty fun anyway. Very satisfying.

    But yeah, still, my fun is pretty much from in-game only. I wouldn’t mind getting into competitive battling but it is such a minefield – so many well-known tactics have developed over the years and it’s difficult to know where to start. I prefer to retreat to my game where I am always the best (the CPUs said so!).

    Same. I play for enjoyment. I only catch pokemon that I want, and if there is none I want, I stock up on repel.

    After I beat the Elite Four, I usually just call it a game.

    doesn't everyone play for fun?

    i enjoy breeding (especially shiny pokemon with cool egg moves) & i'm really looking forwards to random wifi battles in black/white - i used to play PBR random battles a lot but it's a bit unsociable taking the living room TV when my missus wants to watch mind-numbing crap her stuff

    Sorry for the late reply. After I started this thread, I had to go to my grandparent's house.

    Anyway, I'm actually surprised that there are some people, if not more, that feel the same that I do. I started this thread, because my friends that love Poke'mon as I do always tell me that I should do that EV training, and start trading with them. I don't know, I never had a desire to do all that. I mean, I'll trade with them, but they only want to trade with someone who does that EV training. Go figure.

    Anyway, with the new Generation quickly approaching, I'm finding myself actually wanting to at least try to capture every new poke'mon. Does anyone else feel that way?

    I play competitively. Why? Because I enjoy it.

    I like both. Competetive battling is fun and in-game is fun too.

    I enjoy raising Pokémon that I like, simply liking the feeling of achievement. Recently I look for interesting egg move combos and try to breed them (some really take more than a couple breeding). It's fun for me.

    While I don't do competitive battling much, it does sound fun.
