Top Ten Reasons Why Pokemon Is Better Than Digimon


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Pokemon Has a Better Story Line

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.

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

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

I actually agree with this...but a little bit...if you're refering to the anime. - Loosername

22 Digimon Has No Mystery

what. - Stallion

23 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .

Umm... It just a first stage and it starter, and it has not good stats, 314. Like Gyarados almost beats all the way. Blastoise has stats 530, but gyarados has over 540! And also they both have a mega evolutions but still, Gyarados is more interesting for it. And don't mention, Gyarados evolve from Magikarp over 20 level and it is lower than the Blastoise's!

Excuse me, I don't even understand how this weak ass turtle can defeat the strongest Pokemon yet Digimon?

Squirtle sucks... How the heck on of the little low stated starter Pokemon can beat one of the different Pokemon? Stupid.

IT ZUKSSS! - Loosername

25 The Pokemon Are Cuter

Most are cuter, but that's because most have a simpler design.

There is a stupid monkey that sounds like 1960 songs in digimon at least Pokemon are adorable!

I'm looking at Mew and mudkip.

Palkia...and Shiny Garchomp. - Loosername

26 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

How is an yellow dinosaur a ripoff from an orange lizard?
And don't give me the crap that both of them are reptile. In that is the case then chramander is a ripoff from every dragon like creature in shin megami tensei

Charizard is a rip-off of Barney and Route 113 of Pokemon Silver - Loosername

No - ParkerFang

Charizard has PERSONALITY. He's stubborn, feisty, and powerful. He's also everyone's favorite Pokémon!

28 Pokemon Just Looks Way Cooler

I love Pokemon, but we have to admit the simplified look of the show, manga, and games make some digimon look cooler. That's why people make more complex and realistic interpretations of Pokemon.

Pokemon always look better! Sometimes is simple, cute and cool! But Digimon? Stripe with all those awful weapons and trying to be more cuter! Well, it isn't

Stop it! Get some help, this is not the 80's...this is the 97's. - Loosername

Animemasterman this is a opinion pokemon looks more cool than digimon

29 Pokemon Has Been In Crossovers

The best example is Super Smash Brothers

The Digimon isn't on crossovers... Not even in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Crossover! Pokemon did it! So? Digimon is forgivable.

So?! - Mugi

Tamagotchi...Super Mario Arcade GP 2...Mametchi...SSB is actually a little bit faraway of that, Game Freak(Also, that it is because you work for them, because then you would be rapping with Parrapa...ON THE MAUSOLEUM! ) - Loosername

30 Digimon Are Over-Designed

Look at Digivolutions. All they are are a bunch of animals with guns and sword and armor and weapons. How uncreative is that? - Goatworlds

I mean even blastoise has cannons on its back an it's not as over designed as warmon

Digimon are meant for combat so having weapons make sense

Digimon's have armor's and weapons so they can defeat any megaevolve digimon tell me how is mega charizard x can defeat 6 stories tall mega evolve myostismon have you watch xros wars they use cards to play digimon.

31 Digimon's Fanbase is Made of Dullards

Pokemon's fanbase is better? Nice joke man. - yungstirjoey666

Pokemon fans are worse - ParkerFang

Rule 34 and some Hen and Tai Artwork guys? - Loosername

Wow, I take offense to this. Pokemon's fanbase is full of Misty fanatics, Amourshipping jerks, and Pikachu fangirls.

The Pokemon fanbase is no better. - Mugi

32 Humans Look Better

It is a sarcasm, anime humans look worse than MLP ponies...O.C'S - Loosername

33 Digimon Die If They Get Too Weak

Digimon can only die if there data is destroyed

Pokemon can just be taken to a Pokemon center if they get weak.
Digimon just die after getting too weak and you lose your best friend.

Also pokemon are forced to fight till they collapse over and over, digimon choose to fight with their partner. That's why in death battle Taichi started beating up Red and Red was confused, pokemon battle, not their trainers. Dog fighting. - kibablade38

Faintinf used to be death, it was just seen as too dark for kids. In the digimon games like Cyber Sleuth they just get koed like any good rpg. In fact pokemon die, that's why there is a pokemon graveyard in gen 1 - kibablade38

34 Digimon's Original Theme Song Has Repetitive Lyrics

It's all "Digimon digital monsters digimon are the champions! " It was so STUPID! - Goatworlds

Oh my gosh, have you people not heard the Japanese songs? Butterfly, Brave Heart, I Wish, Keep On, so many theme songs to Digimon are amazing! - Mugi

Digimon frontier bro

Catch em all catch em all catch em all. - Loosername

35 Digimon is the Dumbest Anime of All Time

I love Pokemon more but this is... this is pure inaccurate.. total nonsense! As someone below asked, School Days is better than Digimon? OBVIOUSLY NO THAT Bull IS Bull DIGIMON IS BETTER THAN A LOT OF ANIME TODAY! I'm still more of a Pokemon fan though I still love Digimon. It's just awesome and has its own charms that differentiates itself from Pokemon.

So you saying that school days is better than Digimon, what type of anime fan are you

So Boku No Pico is better this? Is that what you're saying? - 906389

Have you even seen Boku No Pico? Is the best anime and everybody should know it. - Loosername

I'm done with this list. - Mugi

36 One Digimon Throws Its Turds to Attack

I don't get digimon how could actually hurt people? But gunk shot isn't crap it's just mysterious gunk made of unknown chemicals

Sukamon sucks because it throws around its crap to attack. Also The Pokemon move "Gunk Shot" is NOT a Pokemon throwing crap around. - Goatworlds

What Do Really Digimon Suck That Much

Sukamon yeah more like Suck-amon.

37 Pokemon's Competitive Side.

Pokemon is very competitive and I love think, not just attack and attack!

Pokemon is boring... - Loosername

38 The Games

I think the many games that Pokemon has can beat the Digimon show and its one crappy game combined, the games offered twisting puzzles and fun times that got kids and adults laughing and determined. Also the bonds that you can make with your Pokemon, and the side adventures that you can do in Pokemon x and y were awesome and in omega ruby and alpha sapphire. Honestly I grew up with Pokemon, and I do watch digimon but the show just got boring to me.

Aren't you guys sick of pokemon games just repeating everything every time only giving you new pokemon? Even Call of Duty has more verity - kibablade38

Why my comment is still not an universal meme? - Loosername

39 Ash Is Better Than Anyone In Kanto, Red

Red Is Stronger Than Ash

I really like Ash, but I doubt that he has more personality than the Digimon characters - yungstirjoey666

Ash is simply a better protagonist. He has goals, he's loyal to his friends, he genuinely wants to help and befriend Pokémon, and of course he has flaws.

Ash dines in Ash.
Red is just furious.
Digimon doesn't ash. - Loosername
