I've always really liked Pokemon, but it feels like the older I get the more I appreciate the whole experience. A lot of this has to do with the nostalgia, but I think some of it also has to do with the fact that when I was a younger kid I had a pretty bad home life, and Pokemon was one of the few things I was allowed to enjoy, and it was how I connected with a lot of my kids who ended up being my friends. I'm a big fan of the games (I went to VGC last year) and I always have loved the first series of the TV show despite the fact that it's actually kind of bad and really corny. There's just this feeling of pleasure that I get whenever I do something with Pokemon, but it's different from nostalgia. I feel like I'm kind of rambling here, so I'm gonna cut this short.
