Pokethlon: My favorite of them all, a bunch of really cool minigames that aren't really hard to master, and you get to see many Pokemon overworld sprites while playing through it.
Hoenn Secret bases: The restrictions in space and number of items are ridiculous, but it's very fun to customize and very nostalgic.
Alola Photo Club: Simple and fun, but it should be accessible from the main menu.
Voltorb Flip: I'm down for any intelligence-based minigame, I honestly prefer it to the casino slots.
Pokemon Amie: The minigames were fun and so is petting your Pokémon.

What, we can only vote for one? Aww

I voted for the Sinnoh Underground. God knows how many hours I spent there. I even buried tons of spheres on an entire route. Now that we've got more items throughout the years, if the Underground feature ever comes back, I'm probably going to be stuck in there again.

Secret Bases were so much fun. Finding different ways to decorate the bases were great, but I think my favorite thing was finding the most obscure places to put a base. That was always very fun for me.

If you add the contests together, its the most popular w/26.4%, which is nice to see. Now if only Gamefreak would notice this and support them more ...

Didn't expect Pokeathlon to be so high, but tbf its pretty awesome.

Sinnoh Underground. It was just endless fun in my opinion, and I also liked that the feature had wireless capabilities so that we could play with other people.

My top three are as followed:

Sinnoh Underground: Good lord, I have no idea how many hours I spent down there, harvesting items like Heart Scales, stones, and Plates. Every time I do a Platinum run I always spend a goodly amount of time down there treasure hunting. It was just so addictive that I've killed more battery time on it than the actual gameplay. But it's always worthwhile.

Mantine Surf: Easily the best way to get BP, as I suck as competitive stuff, which is why I never dabble in Battle Tree or the like. Plus the music is so catchy and it's just so much fun to pull off tricks. I would spend hours on Mantine Surf purely for that, let alone the BP. Plus, it creates great world building for Alola, and gives the player a more fun alternative to just the ferry. Easily one the best features to emerge from Gen 7.

PokeStar Studios: Believe it or not, I actually like PokeStar Studios. It is so much fun to make mock movies with both rental and my own Mons. Plus, you get rewards for good performances, like rare items, which is always a major plus to me. I will spend hours making various movies there, both for the narm charm and free items, plus getting that star animation when one of your Mons gets the strange ending is pretty neat.

I feel like almost nothing will be as fun as the ol' Sinnoh Underground. If Gen 4 remakes are ever going to be a thing, I want that to be the very first thing that Game Freak brings back.
