It has always slightly irked me that the mainline Pokemon games have never been on home consoles... Perhaps NX will have something to say about it.

I've never played pokemon. Why are the main games not on console?

I am on the other side of my sig....am I warm or cold?  

Marco....

Ok that is seriously cool! Hell, most of me and my Dad's coworkers are playing the game and some of them I don't even think have ever even owned a video game console before!

You know... I honestly don't know. I think it has to do with both trading and the ability to play it on the go. Which is cool for the handheld. But I don't see what that had anything to do with consoles. The main reason was most likely because since handhelds are where Nintendo dominates, that the Pokemon Co. kept them there in order to keep high sales figures.

Not on home consoles. Pokemon has always been king of handhelds though.

Except last generation where New Super Mario Bros sold over 10 million more than the best selling Pokemon game.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I don't think so because Mario is still the face of Nintendo.



Probably yes in pop culture. Regarding video games, no.



In sales it might be reaching it now, but Pokémon is by far the biggest thing Nintendo have, including Mario.

The appeal Pokémon has is probably unmatched, and has been since it released on the Gameboy.

Pokémon is a true cultural marvel.

That goes against the core purpose of Pokémon, that's sharing/interacting with others.

Mobile platforms are the ideal envyronment for Pokémon, and when it'll succeed.

Even as the internet has made this possible without the need of being on a mobile platform, it still just is not the same thing, Pokémon had games on consoles and they proved to be far less appealing, at the very last, it would need a major internet enryronment, like the PC or being a mutiplatform game, as a Nintendo console exclusive it will be hardly making anything remotely comparable with what it does being a game on mobile platforms.
