Reasons Why Digimon Is Overrated

Digimon isn't as great as everyone thinks. You don't have to read if you really love digimon.

The Top Ten

1 Pokemon is Better


both sucks - Hummingbirdf

It really is. Games are far better, manga is far better too, but Pokemon anime is just average as Digimon anime. But in general, Digimon franchise not so creative or interesting as Pokemon franchise.

Digimon is terrible

2 Not Enough Attacks

Actually in the games digimon can have 20 attacks

3 The New Digimon Are Ripoffs

Damn yeah. GOD! I hate Savers and Fusion! At least Digimon Adventure tri is like an apology and return of the good series.

Not really. Dorulumon looks nothing like garurumon. But gumdramon and damemon are probably the only ones.

4 Good Old Characters Got Taken Off

Actually a lot the characters get a cameo at the end of Digimon Hunter and they brought back the original cast of Digimon for the 15th Anniversary of the anime - animemasterman

There were no good characters. The entire thing sucked as a whole. - Goatworlds

You are blinded by nostalgia.The newer characters are just as good. I always loved Marcus.

The seasons don't line up only season 1 and 2 are connected but after that its just random things. It like there is nno actual season it's a sepreat T.V. show

5 The English Dub Is Horrible

Both dubs of Pokemon and Digimon are horrible.

Why isn't this the No1 reason? Seriously? The dubbing of the first season is GOD AWFUL.. We're talking about 4kids level of censorship&murcian pandering! ITS BAD folks!

This should be number 1. The Dub of the first seasons is so awful that I can't watch it. I've heard bad dubs before (Bleach) and this puts them all to shame. God, Saban, you are terrible.

Really? Number 5? This should be at least Number 2 because of how horrible the dub is! It sounds like you recorded the voice lines in a cave! God this is so bad.

6 Bad First Stage Evolutions

They should make the baby digimon just chibi versions of their rookie counterparts. I'm not really a big fan of the baby digimon designs, they should make them more miniature and complex than simple spheres. DemiVeemon was the only baby digimon I really liked

What kind of stupid reason is this? Its like saying Pokemon look like ice cream cones and keychains so they SUCK... Anyway.. Its called "BABY 1" and "BABY 2" forms.. They're supposed to be BABIES.. What do you expect from them?

Humans evolved from fish to monkeys to apes to cavemen. So it makes sense.

7 Digimon Frontier

Why does everybody hate Frontier so much? Just because it's different doesn't mean it's bad.

Frontier is my 2nd favorite. People only hated it because the kids didn't have digimon partners. At least digimon is trying something new.

I kinda agree wit this..its not that Frontier is AWFUL.. Its just that Tamers is SO GOOD than frontier is automatically a downhill in quality.

8 The Old Agumon Was Replaced

Unpopular opinion:
To be honest, I liked Data Squad Agumon more than Adventure Agumon
I think Adventure Agumon had a retarded, idiotic voice but talking about anime, I liked Data Squad, especially Marcus and Agumon
I like Agumon as a Digimon too, although I just think others are cooler and interesting

New Agumon looks ugly, with big nostrils, less intimidating, lighter and only good thing about it, it just bandages, GeoGreymon is still okay. But, good god, new agumon looks disturbing.

Old Agumon is STILL There -_-

What was wrong with that. I loved the agumon's belt things he had. I also loved his much more intense digivolution line.

9 Most of the Villains Suck

Main problem with Digimon. Except the original (which I really loved) all other sequels were just bad. - Kiteretsunu

Only Etemon sucked. But the other villains were good.

I don't know where your getting this from but all the villians were awesome devimon,myotismon,and lucemon.

I totally disagree after meeting Devimon, Piemon, Apocalymon, Lucemon, D-Reaper, Mephistomon, Armageddemon, Beelzebumon and many others.

10 Agapio Racing Team Dubbing Digimon

Agapio Team Racing is a infamous Finnish dubbing team that took over the Finnish dub a half of Digimon season 1, and they are known for having a hilariously awful dubbing, especially with Digimon. The episode 12 have to be the worst episode in Finnish thanks to Takeru and Patamon who sound like retarded teenagers smoking weed. But the dubbing team switches after episode 26 after major complains Agapio have reserved.

The Contenders

11 The Digimon Movie had an Angela Anaconda Short Film

That's the only thing I didn't like about Digimon Movie

That show is creepy looking!

12 It's Just a Ripoff

Pokemon was just created first meaning that digimon is a ripoff and and a lot pokemon were made bad.

First it wanted to be like tamagotchi and now it just tries to be like Pokemon. what's it going to try to be like next?

Tamogatchi and Digimon were made by the same person.

True, agumon is a ripoff of charmander another oth picachu too such a ripoff dunno why people don't agree.

13 There is No Digimon Go

Oh, so this is reason why Digimon is "overrated"? Very good reason indeed. *sarcasm*

What a shame. No AR game for Digimon.

14 Dumb Looking
15 It's a Pokemon Remake

Always people going to be with you on your journey,but like different 'bad guys'.Pokemon the main bad guys are team rocket.Other than that I think the only difference is 1 person 1 digimon.But pokemon is like u can have a ton of pokemon and 6 pokes at a time.

16 It's Really Overpowered

Too powerful - Hummingbirdf

Pokemon has always made it to where there is no crazy psycho creature that's unstoppable. Even Arceus has his own weakness. Sure there are some really tough Pokemon you have to battle like Ultra Necrozma (he is very hard). Still Digimon goes way off with their creations.

I seen a lot or them and they look like they have godlike level. Pokemon is not like that, they look fine and not crazy

17 Digimon is stupid

I hate it so much

18 The Anime Isn't as Good as People Say It Is

I went into Digimon anime because everyone told me it was a better anime than Pokemon is so I expected it to be a better anime than Pokemon is. At one point I was so tired of how the Pokemon anime didn't age the characters and using it's overall potential, but kept watching because the characters are so beloved. I went back to Pokemon after the failed attempt at Digimon and fell in love with it all over again. Digimon's concept is just so childish to me. People say it has a better story. A more continuous story? Yes. But better? Definitely not. Pokemon is better in every other way. I'd like Pokemon to be more contiouous and stuff, but it told stories better than Digimon despite being episode by episode. The actual deeper storytelling arcs of Pokemon is better than the entire season I saw of Digimon. I was 20 episodes in when I got tired of Digimon, but was told I needed to watch the entire season. I regret it. Because Digimon feels forced down my throat now and I hate it. What if I ...more

19 Same Main Idea

Its kinda true about that but there's always surprises and not always about the world.

Pokémon is usally about catching them all so this argument is invalid.

20 Over-the-top monsters

Too many digilutions (or something). It all looks like a ton of garbage. Also, a flying cyborg dragon with metal clwas taking out monsters the height of skyscrapers? come on, that's just so over-the-top.

That is what people love about digimon how the over the top it was. Pokémon fans like the simplistic look of Pokemon.

21 A Naked Lady Was in One Episode

i agree

22 The Monsters Were Ripoffs of Pokemon

True,(some digimon fan will argue with this)

23 They Will Never Be as Good as Pokemon

Pokemon always adds new perks to their games that always attract the Pokefans. Digimon on the other hand has games with out of this world terrible, horrible graphics. They should just give up on their games and make more anime that is like the first two seasons of the original show.

24 Copied Pokémon

They did pokemon was first then Digimon.

25 Creatures are Not as Cute

I find most of them ugly except the blue dragon guy. The others are kinda creepy

26 It's Boring
27 Lots Of Scenes Were Removed
28 The Seasons Don't Add Up

The seasons add up in the first two seasons but everything after that the think they are the first people in the digital world, they make old good digimon bad like beelzemon. They also never have cameos or help from past digidestined. They always think they saved the world and only. But truly the almost destroy it as well.

Each show is suppose to be a different entites.If you play the digimon wonder swan games it will make sense.

29 The Leaders Only Have Dragon Digimon

And its very boring. They don't give any chance to other non- dragon/dog digimon. All the times, the dragin only has the chance to mega evolve

30 Taichi is a Gary Stu

He's a psychopath, overprotective and terrible older brother to Hikari. I don't know why he's chosen as a main character because he's a googlehead. He's also boring, useless and always waiting for Joe, Sora and Yamato's help. Another thing, he doesn't have faith on other people, he just let Agumon fight and is mean to Koichiro/Izzy. Joe or Mimi should be the main instead because Joe is clumsy and hero-like, Mimi has some faith. While the others are fighting for friendship, he only cares about Hikari and does nothing.

31 The Merchandise is Too Expensive

For me digimon is hard to get into when its such a pain to collect merchandise. All the digivice prices are severely inflated and because of that even the new releases have been incredibly pricey. Its not like these goods are rare so I don't see any reason for them to be so high.
