I thinks its because there aren't many 8 year olds in the retro community . . .
Its a strategy game. What's wrong with that? The only serious Pokemon player I know (and ever did) was a massive bloke in his 20s who worked at our gym. He'd grown up with them and still enjoyed them, so he'd play Pokemon on his DS while working reception if it was quiet of an evening.
Not a series I've ever played properly, but I wouldn't dismiss them without some merit.
