The problem, for me at least, is that the games relish too much in being an RPG, and a simple one at that, but what makes this a bad thing is that, because of this, it rakes its focus off of being a believable world where creatures much like animals exist. There's not much to do other than battle, prepare for battle, and a few minigames, and...I dunno. I guess its because of the whole "Beat gyms and thwart evil team" scenario that I'm falling out with the games, less formula would really breathe some life into the series. You'd just think that such an expansive world would be far more expansive and varied in activities than battles, a casino (maybe), and some sort of contest. This, then, spills into RPs, and thus it falls onto the GM to make the world seem more attractive, alive, and believable.
I really couldn't have said it better myself :D though I'm ok with animals being non-existing, even though some things don't really add up if pokémon are the only "animals". Like the classic question of where the humans get their meat from. And if bacteria and microorganisms exist at all. But yeah. That's being picky xD
