Holy shit. I think it finally happened. I've finally grown out of Pokemon. It took almost 20 years but I did it.

What do I do now?

>>323026718
You didn't outgrow shit, ORAS is just trash.

>>323027029
It felt like it was just as good as Y and I was able to finish that.

>What do I do now?
Wait for the next mainline Pokemon game to come out.

You don't "grow out" of hobbies. You were part of the fad bandwagon that only played the series because it was popular or accessible, not because you legitimately like the monster breeder/jrpg genre.

Why haven't you been playing Super Mystery Dungeon?

>You don't "grow out" of hobbies
I did.

>Why haven't you been playing Super Mystery Dungeon?
The Mystery Dungeon games have never appealed to me.
>>
>>323028659
>I did.
You didn't. You never had the hobby in the first place.

You say you've been playing for 20 years, meaning you started back when EVERYONE was playing, back when the games and anime were fresh and accessible and acceptable. You caught onto it because it was popular, not because you discovered it yourself and found something you legitimately liked. And between the constant pushing and pressure from the community and Nintendo, your nostalgia from entering a franchise when you were still in school, and you inability to leave your comfort zone and actually explore a fluid and fleshed-out genre, you've stagnated on a bandwagon that you should have left years ago.

Just accept that you never truly liked the franchise and move on to whatever new fad flavor franchise is.

You're awfully defensive about Gen 6 being shit.
>>
>>323029342
I never even said I liked Pokemon.
>>
>>323029412
You're making it pretty obvious by how defensive you're getting though.

Time to play a mature game for mature gamers such as yourself.
>>
>>323027029

This honestly.

I playthrough every Pokemon game I played at least twice, some tree times or more. Usually when I beat a Pokemon game, I put hundreds of hours into it. ORAS is the only game I've played in the series that I have no urge to replay. After I beat Delta Episode, I just put the game down and never looked back.

I might look at it when more ROMhacks comeout for it and stable emulation happens, but that wont happen for another ten years at the very least.
>>
>>323026718
Nah, you just didn't like the game. I did the same exact thing with Black/White. Skipped B&W2, picked up Y, and loved it.
People shit on X & Y but I was never interested in endgame content in pokemon anyway.

I got two gyms into Y and four into Ruby before dropping each. Couldn't get into them at all. And I know it's not because I 'grew out of it' (I'm 25), because Black and White 2 were fucking awesome and honestly the pillar of the series IMO

No, Gen 6 is just garbage for a number of reasons.

Why do you hate happiness.
>>
>>323026718
ORAS was garbage anyways; not like they had much of a chance because gen3 was the weakest Gen of the franchise. If it wasn't for the fact so many endearing game mechanics were changed along with it, it would have been completely forgotten
>>
>>323033850
The only good thing to come out of gen6 were fairies to finally balance out dragons and make steel and poison actually useful competitively, but then they threw all of that balancing out the door with giving me gas to further break already broken OP pokes
>>
But Gen 6 so far is shit

>mfw Fairy types fuck over Fighting, Dark, Psychic and Bug while barely making a dent in Dragon
>>
>>323033850
I didn't play Black 2 or White 2. Were they drastic improvements over Black and White? Those were the absolute lowest point of the series.
>>
>>323036201
Still story focused but Pokemon selection is a lot more open from the start. Also has a shitton of post game content.
>>
>>323036017
You don't meta do you? Dragons immediately get swapped when a fairy or a fairy move user swaps in for fear of being raped
>>
>>323034787
Actually, Gen5 was weakest, but Gen3 is close.
>>
>>323026718
You play Pokemon Showdown because the world exploration and catching mons will never be good enough to pull you back into the games
>>
>>323036378
Most Fairy types aren't bulky enough to stand up to most Dragon's secondary physical stab. Togekiss and Azumarril are like the only decent fairys
>>
>>323036378
Fairies are only 2x Super Effective against Dragons. It's not any more effective than any other weakness.

I don't know why people are doing backflips over this matchup like it's significant. It's not like Dragons are fearing fairies any more than Ice or other Dragons.
