Why The Ending of Every Pokémon Game Is Garbage

You go through the trouble of collecting all eight badges and defeating the Elite Four — and in some cases, sometimes you even try to catch them all. But what for? Pokémon games sometimes treat you rather poorly after doing all that work, when you think about it.

      Have you not played black and white and their sequels?
