Anime refers only to animations, or the TV show.
The Pokemon games are not anime style games, although there are some out there.
Tales of Symphonia is one example that is an anime style game where the characters are drawn in such a way, and some cut scenes (like the opening movie) are actually in anime.
Yes, Pokemon is an RPG, but not done in anime style throughout the game.
Only the opening scene where it shows N can be called anime.
