Top Ten Reasons Why Pokemon Is Better Than Digimonmoonwolf
The Top Ten
"Comments may be reviewed before being posted"
I find this remark incredibly funny when I try to share my two-cents on this. I mean, just look at the other comments. They're cancerous opinions wrote by blinded Pokemon fanboys without any intention to sound remotely sensible or objective. Clearly, the one reviewing this is doing a half-ass job of making sure the discussion receives valid points that aren't subjective opinions labeled as facts. But then again, this is pretty much the state of the Internet for a long time, so who cares if they're right or not - mob mentality wins.
So onto my actual OPINION about this self-proclaimed truth about how "Pokemon is clearly just better". Uh, no. "Better" is a subjective term, kids. See, anyone can say anything is "better". Beliebers claimed that Bieber music is better than Metallica, Twilight fans think Twilight is better than Mad Max: Fury Road... you get the idea. Anyone could make a ...more - ActuallySensible
Face it. The only stronghold Digimon has is the anime. And that's just when the fans nit-pick at stuff, like the plot and character design and stuff. PLUS the only thing they can really put into detail is how their villains are better than Team Rocket.
Pokemon has a great plot and incredibly awesome addictive games. I mean lets get real, Mewtwo and Arceus are more than enough to destroy every single Digimon. Pokemon is more fun cause in the games you face different challenges! Pokemon is older than Digimon plus its extremely famous worldwide. The only reason Digimon fans hate on Pokemon its cause Pokemon is more creative and requires more thinking while playing the games for example: You need to EV train a Pokemon so it can be really great and doing that requires thinking cause you need to carefully choose which EV's to train.
How is this a point? It's a flat statement with no facts added to it. They are both good, you can like either. They each have there own strengths and weaknesses. - kibablade38V 40 Comments
I do agree with this and Pokemon is better than digimon because it doesn't really have any games and Pokemon does but digimon is just data so soon digimon soon can become real life because technology has been getting better and Pokemon is just a a different realm that's like earth.
Sure but there are a fair amount of good digimon games
Pokemon is awesome. Digimon has no good qualities - Goatworlds
They have more games. Quantity does not equal quality, the pokemon games could be sooo much better but they need to rehash the same stuff year after year. Digimon has they're share of bad games but they've been getting better and better - kibablade38V 10 Comments
I don't get why everyone is fighting over which show is better when they are both great.
I mean, Pokemon had great art, and build up (until Unova) and they made sure that they didn't focus on stereotypical characters.
Digimon had loads of drama, and cool characters (until series 5) and they made sure that all their characters shared the spotlight.
Basically what I'm trying to say is that there is no reason to fight over kids T.V. shows cause they're both enjoyable and because doing so is childish.
No, it is not. Bandai may have never even heard of Pokemon at the time, so we can't blame them! Digimon merely began as a spin-off of the Tamagotchi keychain toy to appeal more to the male demographic. Eventually, its popularity overshadowed the Tamagotchi, so Bandai expanded Digimon to have its own anime, toy line, and eventually, games!
Pokemon, on the other hand, is completely different. Game Freak may have never heard of Tamagotchis or Digimons. It was never a spin-off of anything. It began as a game where you traded and battled Pokemon. And it stayed the same thing! Did Digimon? Nope.
People do know about shin megami tensei right which was the first with monster taming in like 1992 right
Digimon is such a clear rip off from pokemon. even the monsters names end with mon. digimon is a blatant rip off loved by a small number of people who grew up with it because their parents couldn't tell the difference and picked one or the otherV 24 Comments
Digimon are basically knock offs of Pokemon characters digimon said are animal with things like missile launchers on their heads! Who cares if they can speak human Pokemon sounds are cute and funny
The Pokemon are more realistic and less over designed.
Umm they are the more cool with so much stuff they had and pokemon only said their names except one meowth said their names only is boring
The pokemon are kind of slaves you know? They are taken from the wild and forced to fight till they collapse, digimon can't even digivolve unless their tamer is a close enough friend to them. - kibablade38V 21 Comments
I had a crush on her when I was 9, but she really has become a icon of Pokemon, she is the representative of all Pokemon champions, she is the strongest, coolest, and nicest of them all. - moonwolf
True but so was tai and mikey were giant characters the main characters were in 2 seasons
It literally took me over an HOUR to beat Cynthia
She is the best champion both badass and hot.V 5 Comments
This manga is AMAZING! It is Pokemon, but it has its own characters, and gives you their adventures through the Pokemon world. - moonwolf
The manga is one of the best things to happen to Pokemon, period.
The anime in pokemon was just too silly and digimon were serious
The manga was good, but the anime is not good. - shawnmccaul22V 6 Comments
And your point is? Digimon tends to hold it's anime roots while Pokemon is very cartoonish. I may be wrong but that's how it seems. - kibablade38
Digimon never really left the west it was being thrown around like Italy a couple hundred years ago.
Rong digimon is still in amarica I no I live here it is
Digimon always fades out in America but Pokémon is always popular.V 1 Comment
Every single digimon I have heard of has "mon" at the end of their name, EVERY SINGLE ONE!
it is so FRUSTRATING, even Activision, yes, Activision has more creativity than the creators of digimon.
I know that ditto Japanese name ends with mon
Even though I love Digimon better, this is true.
Skylanders activision? yes yes it does and digimon is sort of annoyngV 24 Comments
There are no real "regions" in digimon but if we go by fusion there would be 107 zones
In digimon in each region there are some of the same characters but in Pokemon there are new characters coming in each region
Do you even Spin off Pokemon games Bro? There is like 10
Digimon is based in Japan and the digital world, I like the real world base of Japan. - kibablade38V 2 Comments
(face palm) How stupid are you to put this? The Digimon character has different personalities than Pokemon, also, none of the Pokemon nor Digimon look each other, seriously, Agumon is a charmander rip-off? Oh my god, how you can compare that yellow dinosaur with simplified design of T-rex than the Lizard with long tail that burns its tail? I never seen the Tyrant compare to Agumon.
This is the second time being a rip off is used. In fact, using the same jumps in logic here you could say Lopunny is a shameless rip off of Terriermon. rabbit with super long ears ending in semi-fist like nubs. - kibablade38
Ummm... have you seen pokemon? It's a crappily repeated cartoon for children that, like the games, almosy hasn't changed in 20 years
All the Pokemon films generally follow the same formula with really the only one of note really being Pokemon 3 The Movie. Not to mention that the Digimon films quite a few of them were directed by Mamoru Hasoda the same guy who made Wolf Children, Summer Wars, The Girl who Leapt through Time and The Boy and The Beast. - animemasterman
I loved the pokemon origin special
The digimon is just one movie for america and the other digimon movie is just in japan
The only good thing about the Digimon movie is that it has the song All Star from Smash Mouth, which became a meme because of Shrek. - GumballWattersonV 3 Comments
I agree with this though - yungstirjoey666
Yea they did sort of take the theme and slightly change it until season 4 but that first theme is just as iconic as the Pokemon theme.
Before anyone brings up the point of the repeated D-D-Digimon it's electronica, anyone who has listened to EDM or dubstep can't start complaining now. - kibablade38
Mewtwo is a Pokemon. How is it a contender? In fact, Mewtwo is one of Pokemon's most valuable assets.
The pokemon universe have really good villains like darkrai mewtwo heck even arceus
It's mewtwo for gods sake it's amazing let's see your digimon have two evolutions
Um... Alphamon, Omnimon, Dukemon and all the other royal knights? Even Devimon could take mewtwo and he is only a Champion. - kibablade38V 10 Comments
They are simply incredible, and Pokemon has just some of the best theorys out there! - moonwolf
That is because everything is explained in the games or shows. We don't need Theory's. The creators straight up tell us whats up.
I could list 10 theories for pokemon digimon I couldn't even think of one
True, there are some amazing pokemon theories. - kibablade38V 1 Comment
What about Mega Evolution? - yungstirjoey666
Correlation does not equal causation. - kibablade38
They always mention Pokemon in every digimon article in a bad way or compare it with digimon, something you very rarely see in Pokemon related articles.
How can you know whether a digimon will beat a Pokemon when the way they battle are completely different?
Besides, no digimon could kill a Pokemon in battle because Pokemon get 'knocked out' or faint when they get defeated in battle.
All you have to do is look at the comments here. A lot of Pokemon fans will turn on you if you enjoy something they deem as "trash", heck they turn on each other on a dime if you say something like charizard is cool, or Ash is better than Red, or vice versa.
Bigger fan base. Bigger isn't always better. Also they have more merchandise, for that I'm eternally jealous. Still wanted a Terriermom or Botamon plush, but I'll make them myself - kibablade38V 12 Comments
The story line's awesome in the Pokemon manga you jerks, learn more about Pokemon before you comment. I gotta admit, the anime plot line is a bit repetitive but look at Sun and Moon now, it's actually pretty cool (although it's kinda lacking in action). - NightAbsol
Pokemon does not have a real storyline I mean it does but it's the same with every season basically. For Digimon they have different theme every season.
So, um... no? Pokemon had a repetitive and childish story line. Digimon does have a bit of a cycle to the first few but look at Digimon Adventures Tri, our characters grow up. - kibablade38
No it doesn't
It's basically the same thing - yungstirjoey666
I like all the different personalities in both franchises, even though I'm kinda biased since I don't really know Digimon a lot (only watched the first season) and I really love Pokemon. - NightAbsol
