Pokemon Pinball. I don't know why I had it, because I didn't buy it and I don't remember renting or borrowing it from someone, but I remember sitting on the bus going to school playing the crap out of this game. I can't even tell you why I enjoyed it. I like pinball, I like Pokemon, but combining them? Yes please!

runner up: I also really enjoyed the Pokemon Trading Card video game. My cousin and I would always link up and battle.

What was yours? I know mine are old .. I've been out of the loop a while, give me a break!

I've recently gotten back into Pokemon TCG video game but I don't know how I played it as a child! It's impossible for me now!

I tried to play Pokemon Pinball too recently and just couldn't - I hate Pinball so I don't have the patience for it

I got really addicted to PMD Blue Rescue Team back in December 2007. I would play it every night that I worked with my grandmother in the mall and I didn't want to put it down, haha. Sadly I lost that game, and I haven't had motivation to play any other PMD games. Losing it just made me not wanna move on to bigger and better things I suppose. :(

Several years ago I got hooked on the Trading Card Video Game, my cousin lent me that and Pokemon Yellow!
Nowadays I'm really addicted to the Pokemon Rumble series, I know it's incredibly repetitive but it's just so enjoyable!! I've only played the 3DS version, I plan to fully complete it once I finish with the mainstream games (I've beaten the story, just need to collect all Pokemon). I plan to purchase the Wii U version as well.

I like almost every spin-off ever created =D
As for the Pinball, it was very good =) I remember finishing both on Red and Ruby and Sapphire desks.

I think I've replayed every Pokémon spin-off that I own at least once, thinking about it now this gives me the incentive to play Colosseum once more!

Don't recall the addiction level, but I liked Snap, Pinball, Puzzle League/Challenge and the very first PMD: Whatever the Subtitle for the DS. I'm not good at pinball, but of all the mascot pinball games I played, it definitely kept me hooked the most. I really like the music in it as well.

League/Challenge is a no brainer being a Panel de Pon skin, though tbh I probably played both the Tetris Attack and the Nintendo Puzzle Collection versions way more often. I will say that DS PMD was a game I couldn't get enough of at the time. You have to remember, it was pretty big step for the series to let you play as the Pokemon, all of which actually had characterizations. You darn well better believe I was on top of that game. :D I think I played it with more intent than anything prior, save for my first time playthroughs of Blue and Yellow.

I liked Pinball and I could play it for days to finish all stages and get as many points as possible =D

Every spinoff I've played got me addicted. Most is PMD - Red Rescue Team because it was the first Spinoff I've played. I still need to get Rayquaza and that's about it. I've done every thing possible in the game.

Come to think of it, I never finished PMD. I still have no closure on the Gengar/Gardevoir thing. Haha, oops. So much for playing it with intent.

I got addicted to red rescue but only after 4 years of getting it XD. I had found it in my closet and played it non stop til i finished the story mode. I'm still working on getting all the friends on my team though. Basicly the same thing for the exsplorors arc, minus the 4 year thing. So to sum it up, i basicly fell in love with the mystery dungeon games as a whole, for the most part. The gates to infinity arc just didnt do go up to my expectations

I unexpectedly got addicted to the ranger games aswell, but i have not played them for so long i forgot the story

PMD: EOS was my addiction

The storyline, the special missions, the soundtrack, all of it was so great!

Right now I'm addicted to PMD Gates to Infinity. I'm thinking about restarting Explorers of Darkness.

I couldn't stop playing Pokemon Conquest when I first got it. Defiantly my favorite spin-off game.

You should add me! I like to play Kid Icarus, MK7, and, of course, Pokemon.

Pokemon conquest came out of nowhere and hit me in the face with its awesomeness.

I actually got into the pokémon series via the first PMD game. I really enjoyed it and then moved on to the main series game. Bought the first PMD about 3 times due to losing copies and for it's multiple versions.

The second one I have not played as much, but I really admire the story for being darker without being overly irksome like in B/W. And of course there's the 2nd and 3rd ranger games (the first one had some poorly thought out mechanics) and pokémon Link/Trozei. I even strangley like Pokémon Dash.

Have you played the third MD game? I haven't been able to finish it because the story just drags on and on and on
