    I'd say it's an rpg. You take on the role of a trainer and capture monsters to have fight for you in your journey to be the very best...the best there ever was. lol. It's just different from a sword + board fantasy rpg.

    Probably because people have largely appropriated the term "RPG" to encompass anything with a Progression System rather than the actual definition. The one that includes player choice, playing a character, interacting with other characters, and being a story-driven experience.

    I feel like "pokemon" has "its own genre" just like "bomberman", or they're the same people who never consider mobile games as a real game.

    "What is your favorite video game?"
    *mentioned random mobile game*
    "That isn't a real video game!"

    Pokemon absolutely is an RPG.

    Pokemon has all of the hallmarks of an RPG. Some people just like to play the gatekeeper when it comes to their likes and dislikes. If Pokemon were to feature gritty 'realistic' characters, a post-apoc setting, and be about one young boy's quest for vengeance in a cold, uncaring world, then you'd probably see less opposition to it being called an RPG. Oh, and it also needs false choices, and cringy romances.
