@Jolly Jew- Not really. Pokemon has only 5 generations of games, basically 5 core game sets. Each while at base follow the same game formula have various new game mechanics improving on previous. New moves, and how old moves function. Environmental effects, plus new Pokemon with new Type combinations and balancing previous imbalances. Like going from first to 2nd introduced Pokemon to fight against the over powered Dragons and Psychic types. Along with EVs which were secret and changed stat outputs. 3rd gen introduced double battles and its various tweaks related to that. 4th gen brought in a slew of Pokemon with new type combinations that weren’t getting credit before, same with the 5th. While the story of each game is pretty simple the characters motives and actions in recent years are pretty interesting. And brings concepts that normally wouldn’t be brought up in a “simple children’s game”

Call of Duty starting with 4 is literally the exact same thing with a yearly release. The only tweaks being the various perks meant to “give the edge” to long term players. When its basically padding to give its players a sense of accomplishment for wasting hours on hours of screaming at each other through a headset. Along with paying for map packs of old and new maps until the next game comes at which point its traded in for the next title. Its basically become the new sports game. This can also be applied to many other FPS franchises that choose to emulate Halo and COD.
