Nintendo has tried new stuff and has tried to innovate old games, but the rehashes always see more sales than the more unique games.
The Game Theorists (in the linked video) talks about this as well as CoD and all those other big series that people complain are the same over and over again. Yeah, there's a voice for more unique and new games, but when companies make those games they just don't see good feedback.
And what's the problem with a rehash? If I want to play some Mario, I'll visit my DS or Wii. If I want to play a casual fps, I'll pick up my PS3 controller and do a little CoD. If I want to play a good RPG, I'll get back on my PC.
Here's a little analogy. Do you visit your favorite Mexican restaurant and wonder why all the food is just some sort of tortilla with cheese, meat, and salsa? No, that's why you're eating there. Do you ask the Mexican joint to start making Lo Mein because you're craving some oriental? No, you go to a Chinese restaurant.
Don't get me wrong, I get what the original post is saying about the bang for your buck, but change or unique isn't the right word. It's progression. We don't want a new game. We want the familiar play styles and plots, but we should expect the company to improve upon it each time. You shouldn't ask the Mexican place for some egg rolls, but you sure as hell can ask them for some better guacamole.

Why fix something that's broken?
Nintendo is a prime company that takes this motto and follows it. All they've been doing with every Mario Kart is updating graphics, characters and items, but still keeping the core gameplay the same because it works.
Same goes for Pokemon, Pikman and LoZ series. All they've been doing is minor tweaks that improve it without changing the fundamentals that made it so loved to begin with. It's really genius and because of it most of the flagship titles have received nothing but praise.

Actually, come to think of it, Wii Sports and the subsequent Mii-based games probably qualify as Ninty's newest first-party game series, and they're all pretty good games. Wii Sports still holds up as one of the best motion control games of all time, and the follow-ups with MotionPlus and so on were decent too. Heck, Wii Fit Trainer even made the Smash Bros. roster.

*Ignoring Wonderful 101 intensified*
If you want to discount that because Platinum made it, ignoring Nintendo's very real creative input and direction and the fact that they own the IP, their newest game would be something Gamecube-era (Pikmin/ Animal Crossing/ Advance Wars - not bothered to check dates), maybe Brain Training (it counts) or Kid Icarus, which in my book counts as something entirely new since it bears almost no resemblance to the original whatsoever, save the main characters and a few homages like the Eggplant Wizard. There are also a load of spinoffs with unique and original gameplay like Luigi's Mansion, Pokémon Trozei and Paper Mario, the first two of which are fantastic RPGs.
Nintendo don't make a lot of new intellectual properties, granted, but they do use the ones they already own very well, for the most part, and release consistently polished, good games with original features and mechanics. You can call Mario rehashed all you like, but the gameplay differences between things like Mario World, Mario 64, Mario Sunshine, Mario Galaxy and Mario 3D World are too big to ignore, imo. If you can't get past their old set of characters and basic genres that's personal, but for good quality, fun, original gameplay Nintendo still has it in them for me.
I'll admit that some things go seemingly unchanged for a long time, like Pokémon or Mario Kart, but each iteration has unique features and characters that make them worth playing. A lot of people bag on Pokémon for being the same game every time, but that doesn't take into account the designing of 100+ new characters, a new world, core mechanic changes and so on. To an outsider gen III and gen IV games may look very similar, but the difference in terms of gameplay (especially competitive multiplayer) is massive.

I actually quite like Trubbish and Garbodor, imo they look pretty neat for what they are. But every generation has their weak points, as thechosentroll mentioned, and they also have their strong points - Chandelure, Hydreigon, Reuniclus, Zekrom, and Scrafty spring to mind as some of my favourites from the Trubbish generation.
(Plus, Trubbish and Garbodor have background reasons for being what they are - Grimer and Koffing represent effluent and gaseous pollution, two major problems in Japan, whose technological manufacturing causes a lot of that kind of waste (first generation is set in a place called Kanto, which is the name of a real Japanese region). Trubbish represents litter and other physical waste, which is more relevant to a stereotypically careless and wasteful Western setting, which Unova is based on. Unova even contains the latin root nova, meaning new, referencing New York.)

No....you specifically brought up a specific gen 5 pokemon. You're terrible at making points. You didn't bring up repetitiveness at all in your original point.
Yeah, pokémon is repetitive as fuck. It's the same game every time with a few new backgrounds to look at. So is CoD. So what? It's literally the most consumer friendly business model out there. Every buyer knows exactly what they're buying when they make the decision to buy. The games aren't hyped up as new or innovative. It's the same thing with a few tweaks. That's what people want.

It's just so awkward. Everything is so gloriously fucking awkward! The girls taking it seriously, the guys doing everything but taking it seriously . The hugely sub-standard actresses just seal that fucking deal!
