I just feel like digimon is getting better

While Pokémon is getting worse.

I am the One Above All. I see through many eyes. I build with many hands. They are themselves, but they are also me. I am all-powerful. My only weapon is love. The mystery intrigues me.

well everyone is entitled to their opinion.

if gen 8 is of any indication so far though, I couldn't disagree with you more.

Digimon was fun and definitely had its moments. From the little I’ve seen of the newer material, it certainly seems to be improving too! But to say that the Pokémon vs Digimon debate is still alive? Hmm, I think people respect the differences and embrace the similarities in the franchises nowadays. Then again, maybe I’m just not looking in the right places, idk.

But just looking at which one has more momentum right now, and has for the better part of a decade? Pokémon takes the lead. Not that ones better than the other, just in overall net worth, I mean.

It just shows that digimon choose quality over quantity.

Sure they have less net worth than Pokémon.

But having more net worth doesn’t mean your better.

Digimon is better at making games now while Pokémon now has games that are mediocre at best.

Pokémon is kinda on life support because the only reason Pokemon survives to this day is because of funding from Nintendo. Without Nintendo Pokémon might not have survived.

Digimon on the other hand is doing quite well thanks to cyber sleuth and digimon survive.

Anyway here’s some art and a link to Sylveon trolls digimon to finish my reply.

B-but.. the Pokémon franchise is worth about $15 billion. Digimon is worth $90 million. It’s nearly only 1%.. of the overall net worth. It’s.. it’s all publicly available information.

But that wasn’t even my point.. I actually think both Pokémon and Digimon are good in their own rights. I was just making a blanket statement that Pokémon is worth more, not assessing Digimon’s quality. :(

edit: lol not related but apparently I can buy Digimon.net for $3 grand.

Well I’m just saying that Pokémon is starting to get worse a bit.

I’ve noticed that they are taking ideas from digimon as well as yo kai watch.

I don’t know but some people say the ultra beasts look a bit like digimon.

Plus didn’t digimon make mega evolution before Pokémon made it cool.

Also how are you able to swear here.

You can’t say s words on the Pokémon forum

All subjective, and fails to address that point nor the rest of your post. Don’t spread your garbage beliefs unless you have something substantiative and objective to knock it with.

Okay. But you speak in a really mean tone. What is wrong with you.

There's an option to turn the censor off, and there's ways to get around the censor. We also don't give a fuck about a little swearing on here.

But moving on from that shit

I get what you mean by the series has been getting worse, I've for years now complained about how formulaic the series has been and how Game Freak has been churning out the the same thing we've gotten since Gen 3, but it's kind of objectively false to state that Pokemon is "on life support" and "only survives because of funding from Nintendo". Looking at sales figures for the main series games, they still sell about as well as they always have, Pokemon GO was a pretty big fucking deal when it first came out and is still played to this day, the anime is still going, people still play the TCG, the competitive scene is still going strong around the world, etc. And on top of that there is the aforementioned fact of how the franchise is worth a shitload and a half of money.

It also would be a very strange business practice for Nintendo to keep putting money into a supposedly failing franchise. Companies exist only to make a profit, so it'd be an ass-backwards approach to keep putting money into something that is not giving them a profit or even losing them money.

This is, as you say, not necessarily an indicator of quality (which is a somewhat subjective thing), but it at the very least it disproves the idea that Pokemon is currently dying.

Okay then.

But I’m just saying digimon is getting better.

Oh and thanks for telling me to disable the swear option.

Because I don’t give a psyduck right now.

Next time a mod swear like you.

I should tell them to psyduck off

Woah, friend, relax. No one is saying that Digimon is bad. We may disagree on whether or not it’s better than Pokémon, or whether or not it’s improving, but all of us here have one thing in common! Many of us learned about Digimon through Pokémon, or vice versa, and they became beloved childhood franchises. There are just some objective truths that can be stated about both series and that’s all that’s being said. Your opinion on them is still totally valid. :)

Also, don’t get offended by a little swearing. Staff and most members here are lenient about it. Plus, Nah wasn’t even gearing any profanity towards you. A little psyduck now and then may do ya some good!

I know that.

I just don’t like it if a mod swears.

That isn’t civil if a mod swears

It is a ripoff, no doubt.

Tamagotchi wasn't, but the spinoff was clearly made around the same time to cash in on Pokemon's success. There are even copied designs!
Of course, I abhor Digimon, so I might be biased.
You haven’t even tried digimon. So how can you say it’s a ripoff.

They didn’t copy Pokémon designs.

I don’t even know of a digimon that looks like a Pokémon.

For me. I would only use f words when someone swears at me.

Basically fight swearing with swearing.

You didn’t try watching anymore?

Try digimon cyber sleuth. It’s a really good game.

Plus the first two seasons of digimons are really good.

You can’t hate something after just watching it once.

You sometimes got to dig a little deeper.

Anyway Pokémon look much better as digimon.

Here are some examples.











See pokemon look so much cooler and badass as Digimon

Farfetch’d looks so much better as a digimon.

Meowth looks cooler than his original.

Venusaur looks more fearsome than his original.
