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 Pokémon Rip-Offs

1 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.

Isn't the original supposed to be better than the 4kids except everyone here unless they lived in Japan grew up with 4kids Anime.

A great show of good versus evil and fighting your opponent with monster cards in your hands.

Yu gi oh is much better than pokemon

Its like making a show of Pokemon card battles.

2 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.

I saw this after finishing Black And White ( When I was 5 or so ) and it sucked so bad. I regret watching it, may have rather gone on The Smiler and threw up on other riders and getting in trouble and then having to pay

I hate it


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

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, known in Japan as Monster Farm, is a 73-episode anime series based on Tecmo's Monster Rancher video game franchise.It originally aired on Japanese television on TBS from April 17, 1999 to September 30, 2001. An English-language version by Bohbot Entertainment and ADV Films aired in more.

Very underrated show.

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

This is shamelessly bad.

When 4kids thought making Pokemon clones was cool

They could at least use more of their dinosaurs. Even the Alpha Gang has a better variety of dinos to use.

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

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 series is actually ok compared to others

Jibanyan is really cute same as Pikachu

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

The Newcomers

? Hanazuki: Full Of Treasures

I hate this rip-off!

The Contenders

11 Monsuno

Never like this show from Nicktoons, let's not go there. - TechnicallyIDoComics

12 Kaijudo
13 MegaMan NT Warrior

Not a ripoff

14 Mega Man Battle Network

How in the hell is this rip off to pokemon? It's not even similar to pokemon anyways

15 Lilo & Stitch: The Series Lilo & Stitch: The Series is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television.

Before there was Spectrobes, there was this. - PerfectImpulseX

16 Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes. It is owned by Canadian Studio WildBrain, which is the largest independent Children's and Adolescent's Film Studio

With Tiddlytubbies

17 Robopon

They're not even trying.

18 Roblox Pokemon Brick Bronze

Why is this a thing

They could of thought of something original but no. Every month this game gets deleted and put back on. At least other pokemon roblox games either give up or change to something origional but not this

Don’t play it

19 Mix Master
20 Dogmons
21 Huntik: Secrets & Seekers
22 Boohbah Boohbah is a British children's television programme created by Anne Wood. It premiered on 14 April 2003 on ITV in the United Kingdom, followed by its Nick Jr.


An odd creature.

23 Fimbles

Fimbo, Florrie, Baby Pom, Rockit, Roly Mo, Bessie, Ribble. Another creature preschool show.

24 Sun Baby
25 Glitter Force

You collect glitter charms instead of Pokémon. It is super cheesy and all the songs are total garbage.

26 Transformers: Armada

Complete garbage
