We started playing Pokemon as impressionable youth, setting on our journey to catch 'em all before we could drive a car. Today, as full grown adults with jobs, houses/apartments, and mature responsibilities, we still can't stop trying to catch 'em all, even if 'em all is, like, 600 instead of 150. Pokemon has a hold on us that we will never escape, and frankly we don't want to.
Look, the reason we keep coming back to Pokemon again and again is simple: we want to be the very best, like no one ever was. The standard Pokemon formula hasn't changed all that much over the years (even if it is finally making the jump to 3D with X and Y in October). However, as the old adage states, why fix what isn't broken? Pokemon is still fun to play, and until that stops we're going to continue to catch 'em all... or, at least, most of them. Or some of them.
