But proooobably Crookshanks from Harry Potter:

Well to be technical none of them are "mine", that's why they go away. There's no storage system and once I use their field move they go away forever, lol.
Toujours, you make me miss playing Ranger. WHY. I WANTED TO FORGET IT EXISTED BECAUSE IT WAS SO BORING. :(

I love the gameplay, I think the capturing system is fun, but I'm tired of the story lol. I'm kind of at the point where I just want to beat it because I know I'm close to the end (the people keep saying "so you're leaving soon...") and it would be a shame to stop now, lool.

I got bored of it after a while, especially drawing circles against certain IMPOSSIBLE Pokemon like Steelix and stuff, it was like... "my hands can't take this but I must carry on ;__;"

I only played the first one btw, and the hardest part was in the poison area. :3 I kept having to reset/refresh there, or whatever the word was!

I remember now! It was Mr. Tinkles and Crookshanks!

And Danica if you thought the game was boring why do you insist on playing it/detailing us with your adventures?!

I've never played Ranger, and from the sound of things I've saved my wrists a lot of pain. Aside from Colo/XD, I've never been big into the spinoff games anyway... the basic trainer travels and battles with Pokemon formula is still the best IMO.

Shame about those cat Pokemon... it's like Game Freak is biased against cats and shows it by making them mediocre or worse... But sometimes a cat lover has to bite the bullet and make some sacrifices... *is well aware that Persian is the Achilles' heel in their team*

Oh, Ranger? I liked the second one the best, the first one was impossihard. I remember I sat for two hours trying to catch that Entei and I was about ready to snap my DS in half. I think I beat Steelix by leveling up a few times and my capture string was JUST long enough.

The hardest part for me was the ending, I had to get a friend to beat it for me. The changing platforms I think? I dunno. Recently I tried to go back and capture mew and I realized 'OH WAIT I NEVER WANNA PLAY THIS VERSION AGAIN'. I bought the third one as well, but it didn't keep my attention. Maybe I'll go back to it later...

While we're talking about the Ranger series (which I haven't played yet, boohoo), I'd like to point out that the Mystery Dungeon series are awesome. kthnxbai

The Mystery Dungeon Series is awesome but if there were no main Pokemon games and you needed to choose between Ranger and Mystery Dungeon I would choose Dungeon every single time. The Ranger series is actually pretty hard believe it or not. In Shadows of Almia, against the Ramparados (Oh god what's the plural for Ramparados) was so hard. It was probably the only thing that wanted to make me through my DS at a wall, start hitting it with a baseball bat, and then put in a blender. Yeah I was one of the people who sometimes like the Spin-Off Series and sometimes hate it with all my guts. Although I am overcoming my hate for Spin-Off games by wanting Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness and Pokemon Colosseum for Christmas.

Mystery Dungeon... not my thing... I'm one of those people... those people who subscribe to the "Pokemon games without trainers are like computers without hard drives" train of thought.

Plus the box art... with the Pokemon wearing those tacky looking neck cloth thingies... did not make a strong first impression. I also played a 5 minute demo at GameStop back in the day, and the gameplay didn't appeal to me either.

Besides, if I was in control of a gang of Pokemon, I wouldn't have them save others or do random fetch quests. I'd have my crew pull bank heists or operate massive Ponzi schemes instead

I have Mystery Dungeon but I failed in the first dungeon and had to start over, and since first dungeons are usually created so you can't fail, I just got frustrated and gave up lol. I wish I saw the appeal like everyone else seems to.

Haha, exactly. Whenever somebody asks me about the ranger series, I reply with something like "I don't know about Ranger, but Mystery Dungeon sure rocks!"

From what I've heard and seen, though, it should be another good spin-off.

I've seen many fan-made Pokemon crossovers in the form of fanfics and roleplays so actually hearing the idea of Nintendo making a crossover game really excites me~! ^u^ It's like a fantasy dream come true. :3

Oh yeah Smash Bros was another crossover. Ahaha, I don't really like crossovers that much, but we'll see. :3

Well, if it is as awesome as SSB, then it's definitely worth a try

I haven't really tried Nobonuga (or heard of it, in that matter) but only time will tell if this will be a success.

Cross-overs are always cool. Especially for the players that enjoy both franchises being brought together.

Some crossovers work. Some don't. I haven't seen any Pokemon crossovers besides Smash Bros. and this new Nobunaga game, aside from some horible Pokemon corssover fan fictions.

Yeah not a fan of fanfiction in the least so a crossover one just doesn't appeal to me but...I can see the worry. Like for example, this isn't a Pokemon game with Nobunaga, this is a Nobunaga game with Pokemon...if that becomes super common then the actual Pokemon game might fall out of favor and we lose gameplay :(

Not that I'm complaining though, I think this spinoff is a great idea, lol.

I don't mind crossovers in general, I'm just not sure how good Pokemon would be in a crossover lol

The Nobunaga/Pokémon crossover game looks pretty cool. I'd have to see some actual gameplay when it's released before I consider buying it myself - if it's even going to be released in America, that is.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon is probably my top favorite Pokémon spin-off game. If Nintendo announced a new PMD game with the fifth generation Pokémon, I'd most likely cry from utter happiness.

Surely they'd do that. I mean, PMD is a pretty popular spin-off series and if they don't make one with Gen V Pokemon, the fanbase would probably whittle down.

Colo/XD are my favorite spin-offs. At least those games had trainers (and one awesome, afro-wearing, disco dancing one at that).

Most of the other spin-offs, I don't see the point of them besides trying to milk the franchise. Most of them don't even "feel" like Pokemon; just some other game with Pokemon inserted into them.
