Of course you save the world and defeat team rocket, but you did not set off to do that, you left home to become the master of a sport, and that is a sad fact.
The purpose of Pokemon is to train, trade, battle, collect, etc. There is no one purpose. Some people only battle, some only collect, some only trade, etc. There is a different purpose for different people, but wording it like "fighting for fun" or "make your animals fight for entertainment" just isn't justifiable!
The plot for the games is to catch, trade, battle, and become a Pokemon Master. To complete the Pokedex, battle everyone, challenge leaders...It hasn't really changed since the 'original' games (All the games are original to me, they're all different!).
There is a reason why Pokemon battle
. To strengthen bonds with their trainers, to become stronger, and to reach the top. Most Pokemon have the same goal as their trainer. Some Pokemon don't even battle at all, some are kept pets.
