Top Ten Pokémon Rip-Offs

We all know Pokémon, but here are some good or bad rip-offs of Pokémon on this list.

The Top Ten

1 Yu-Gi-Oh! Yu-Gi-Oh! Yu-Gi-Oh! was aired from 2000 to 2004 in Japan, and 2002 to 2006 in the US. It continues where the Toei Anime Left off. When 10th grader Yugi Muto solves the Millenium Puzzle, Yami Yugi emerges, taking control of him to help his friends. In Duel Monsters, they mostly played children's card games because more.

Pokemon is better than yugioh

Great 2000s series the best Pokémon rip off.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! anime is better than the Pokemon anime. Here's why:
1) Ash Ketchum appears in every single Pokemon anime series. In every single Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series, there's a new protagonist in every series, such as in Duel Monsters it being Yugi Muto and in ARC-V it being Yuya Sakaki. In every single series, I'm sure Yugi Muto makes at least one appearance, but I'm sure that's often at the end or near the end of the other series(besides Duel Monsters).
2) The monsters are actually much stronger than Pokemon species. I compared the Yu-Gi-Oh! Egyptian Gods Slifer the Sky Dragon, Obelisk the Tormentor, and The Winged Dragon of Ra to all of the Legendary Pokemon, and the gods are so much powerful. Yu-Gi-Oh! monsters aren't meant to be cute, unlike Pokemon, but I do prefer huge beasts in my opinion. Yu-Gi-Oh! monsters, unlike Pokemon, aren't really interacted with when not in a fight.
3) The Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise has more monsters/species than Pokemon. Pokemon has only 801 ...more

Its like making a show of Pokemon card battles.

2 Digimon Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to describe a variety of Japanese anime series based on the Bandai virtual pet brand “Digimon” (Dejimon). As of 2017, there are 7 series: “Digimon Adventure” (1999), “Digimon 02” (a.k.a. “Digimon Adventure 02”) (2000), “Digimon Tamers” (2001), more.

At least the characters are relatable, 3 dimensional, has development, and knows when to grow up.

We can't blame them. The creators probably didn't know or maybe were inspired by Pokemon or something else so, we can't blame them. But, Digimon is more of similar than a copy or rip-off of Pokemon.

Digimon look like cheap knockoffs of Pokémon

The only reason I think is a rip-off is because all of the divining look like cheap copies of Pokémon

3 Beyblade

How Beyblade is a ripoff of Pokemon?

4 Duel Masters

It's an okay show, but no the best. It's similar to Yu-Gi-Oh with monster cards, but Yu-Gi-Oh's still better than this. - TechnicallyIDoComics

5 Monster Rancher Monster Rancher
6 Bakugan

Ah man, I first discovered this show on YouTube. I think it’s pretty underrated, and you should give it a chance.

7 Medabots
8 Slugterra

Least favorite of the Pokémon rip-offs, the slugs should have a hard death with burning salt. - TechnicallyIDoComics

9 Dinosaur King

The main character even has the same voice as Ash!

Bad rip-off from the dark times of 4kids. I'll just stick with Jurassic Park, thank you. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Yes but also yo Kai watch

10 Yo Kai Watch

I actually played this game myself and being a huge Poke-fan myself, the game- yes has similarities but -are very unalike in retrospect. Not gonna lie though, I did only play the first one so if the games have became much more similar since then sos...

This list is borderline stupid ass hell!

Actually very good.Pokemon fans are just too stupid to try something new for once.

Yo Kai watch is actually pretty different from Pokémon. You don’t throw shere prisons at them and they choose to befriend you
