    I have been facing a dilemna in recent years. I recently bought Pokémon Ultra Moon and loved playing it for a little while. Then, I got... bored. Not only with Ultra Moon, but I got tired of playing Pokémon on general. I felt that way a little bit before I left for two years, too. I hate to say it... but I'm tired of playing Pokémon.

    Are you getting tired of playing Pokémon? If not, then what keeps you going?

    I've not gotten tired of playing Pokémon games, I replay them maybe times usually. I found somethign that works for me and that's Nuzlocke runs, I love doing Nuzlocke runs and I do them like 95% of the time. Is what keep it interesting for me.

    When I get bored of my current Pokémon game, I start a new one. I've also started to give myself challenges to make the game more strategically based. So far my challenges have just been to get through the game using just a single type. I've played through Pokémon Ruby using just Grass, and then just Water Pokémon, and I'm planning on playing Firered with fighting Pokémon soon. And if that stuff still doesn't appeal to you, it's okay to take a break from Pokémon games for a bit and maybe pick it up again in a few months or something. Some time off might help.

    Not at all! The world still has so many possibilities to explore, and I eagerly await every game that comes. While I will be skipping over Let's Go, I am excited for Gen 8, and what it will bring.

    Considering the many many many different ways to play a Pokémon game, there's always bound to be something I can do. You can nuzlocke games, randomize them, play competitive mons, do certain challenges, solo runs, etc.

    Yes. I am extremely tired of playing Pokémon by this point. Since they started adopting a narrative focused approach with Gen V - a narrative that in no way justifies that focus - I have become steadily more disgusted and irritated with the main series games. It has reached the point where I am seriously considering avoiding the next generation, if it's going to be more of the same mediocre rubbish overlaying some still-addicting gameplay.

    *Long post alert*
    Last year I started losing interest because I didn’t really have anyone to talk to about it. When I first started playing I would talk about it with my brother (who got me interested in the first place). Then I made friends with someone who loved it too, but that friend didn’t go to the same high school as me and I haven’t seen them in a long time. So I had no one to talk to about Pokémon and I lost interest. Then a few months ago, I started watching some Poketubers and I subscribed to them and I started coming back to Pokémon. I started playing more and more often, and I joined Lake Valor and Smogon.

    Long story short, I lost interest because I didn’t have anyone to talk to about it, but I came back because of Poketubers. Wow

    I agree with this, Nuzlockes are an excellent way of regaining interest, and there's tons of ways of making them extra challenging and fun!

    Such as once I did an Egglocke where I asked on a forum for a bunch of random eggs, and somehow I ended up with a team that had a Shiny Tyrantrum, a Shiny Lapras, and someone gave me an egg that hatched into a Level 1 Giratina because... why not. (I still have it, never leveled it up because it still makes me laugh.)

    I only ever play a Pokémon game once, its just the kind of person I am, I only play something once. That being said I get bored of playing the games all the time. However, I never really got bored of Pokémon in general. I love Pokémon and I don't think I'll ever tire of loving Pokémon, even if I get tired of the games, anime or manga.

    I think everyone at some point gets burnt out on certain games even if you love playing them and Pokémon is no exception. I lost interest for a couple of years myself (from gen 3 to gen 5) but steadily got back into the games and played through all the ones I had missed. Took another hiatus early gen 6 just because my main focus was competitive battling and the community I grew up with battling began to dwindle. I'm back into the games again now but I'm sure I will lose interest at some point just to return again later xP

    I Don't Know If I Am The Expectation One But Because Of Unable To Playing Pokémon Game, I Still Like I Am Tired To Watch Pokémon Playthrough.

    There Is A Point When I Lost Interest On Pokémon From 2009 To 2013/2014 When It's Only The Playthrough Of Black And White Got Me Back To Pokémon.
