Ironic.
 
I'm sure lots of people feel (or realize now) that PMD and even Ranger have better stories (let alone HAVE a story) in comparison to the main story games. I'm pretty sure PMD was supposed to be focused on the dungeon aspect, while the main series was meant to incorporate a story.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Please stop using colour+font tags in your posts! It can be really distracting for other users and sometimes makes it hard for them to read your posts, and that's No Good.

Also, I never thought the main series really intended to have much of a plot in the first place... I mean, it's a flimsy LET'S GO ON AN ADVENTURE WITH AWESOME ANIMALS!!! plotline that serves the game mechanic really well. it's not really ironic, i wouldn't say.

Sorry, I just did that all the time in Pokecommunity. I feel there was a story, at least to blue / red mystery dungeon. The whole thing with the Gardevoir, Gengar, and the society turns on you thing just seems better than, "Go raise some Pokemon, beat the Elite (not really) 4 and complete the Pokedex!" sort of thing.

Where did you get the idea the main series was meant to have more of a plot than the spin-offs? People like the main series Pokémon games for the monsters and the gameplay, and the main series games are designed around giving them that, with the plotline getting only minimally in your way; spin-off games, on the other hand, are far freer to be adventurous with the story and such without worrying about fans who just want the gameplay being unhappy with the shift.

Whether or not the spinoffs have better plots than the main games is subjective anyways. You cannot really state that they do as fact as it varies from person to person which ones have the better plots.

well no, but PMD games are inarguably much more plot-driven than the main series, which is what I think the OP meant.
