Do you find yourself going into random houses to find items and talk to people in Pokémon games, or do you avoid houses completely?

Sometimes. But I feel like most of the time, I don't even bother.

Something about getting bored by the thought of checking houses and what everyone says, idk.

we're all just wanderers

I go in the houses that I know have stuff for me :P

Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells, all seem to say "throw cares away."
On on they send, on without end, their joyful tone to every home.

I like to explore every nook and cranny of the Pokémon games because they have so many hidden items. After a while you start seeing patterns where hidden items are - like empty spaces in a patch of grass. I also talk to everybody, you can get a ton of TMs and other useful battle items just by doing that!

I go in all the houses too! I couldn't imagine not checking the houses for items. Rule number 1 of RPGs is to talk to everyone after all. 8)

It's always really disappointing when they don't have anything for you, though.

I go into every house and every building whenever I am playing through a game. I always feel like I will miss something if I don't. Most of the time they have nothing of importance to say but on occasion they will give you a cool item or offer a trade so it's worth the effort 8D

I go into every house and talk to every person. I worry about missing something, and I also don't like to rush through my games too quickly, so talking to everyone helps slow me down. If I'm doing a challenge or a speed run of some sort (or a hack, especially if I'm concerned about stability or my computer seems slow), I won't do it, but whenever I play my main files, I walk into every house that will have me (and repeatedly bang into locked doors that I find).

Yes I do walk inside those houses, because it is best to talk to every NPC in the game in case you may miss an important item they might have for you.

I always go in houses because I like to read all the goofy dialogue. It's a common JRPG trope that you can walk into anybody's house, so I use that to my advantage.

Years of playing Final Fantasy have taught me to pilfer every place you come across so yes, I do visit every house whenever I'm in a city. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'f I'm playing the first game in a new gen, yep, I'm barging into houses and interacting with everything, seeing what bits of story I can dig up or if I can collect some items.
just like his grandfather. he thought the drugs made him change. that hyde was in the bottle. but he was wrong. it is in the blood. henry was born with it. it was always in him. it just needed something to bring it out. and sir danvers carew knew what that was.

I usually go to every house once I reach each city. I don't feel satisfied if I miss one.

I rarely go into houses, but if I do, it's usually because I'm looking for something specific (an HM, for example).

Always. I feel like you can't fully enjoy any RPG without talking to everyone. Like Achromatic said, it's rule #1.
Lumiose City, however, was made it painful.

I do, in any kind of games, but only the first time I play. Then I know which NPC is important to talk to and which one are not.

Yep, I always go inside random people's homes and talk to them. It's funny how sometimes you come across an easter egg or find an NPC who's breaking the fourth wall with his speech.
