why would anyone play Pokemon when you could play Persona?

Well, some of us have real girlfriends who'd like us to trade or battle with them.

But in Pokemon you can trade your girlfriend if she evolves into something you don't like.

I assumed your question in the topic wasn't serious. If I'm wrong then my answer would be "because they're different games" :) Aside from Japanese stylings, turn based RPG and the collection elements they're very different.

Because they're two different games with different merits and different styles.

I don't have a vita or PS2/PS3

I don't care for that series

I played Pokemon back in the Red/Blue and Gold/Silver generations so I have a nostalgic connection to Pokemon.

A guardian spamming Megadoleon over and over again and wiping your party with hours of level grinding to look forward too can kinda make anyone play Pokémon instead.

Better idea: Play both

Why would you eat dessert instead of your meal? They're both delicious and filling in their own way, and some people just don't like dessert, or prefer dessert to a meal.

Same with Pokemon and Persona. Different tastes, themes and fulfills different needs.

Because some people would rather focus on the monster collecting and not reading tons of dialogue. I like Persona more myself, just saying there are plenty of reasons to prefer Pokemon for many(trading, traveling different areas, different tone, etc).

Alright then, I'll just play Persona fi... oh wait I can't. That's why.

Cause persona is garbage

While I find Persona a much better game, even though they have a collect them all type thing going on, they are exceptionally different.

One cannot replace the other.

This is very much true.
