Why is the Digimon Anime so much better then the pokemon Anime?

#1360pagesPosted 1/14/2013 9:05:51 PM
The first four Digimon series (I hated frontier/ Adventurer 2.) had character arks. Character development. And a plot that was promisingly good and some heartfelt endings for a Anime aimed at kids.

Pokemon however, seemed to be somewhat insulting even for the target demographic.

I love the pokemon games more then the Digimon games, but why such a large gap in quality when it comes to the show, when pokemon should have a bigger budget.

You're going to start a war TC lol.

I guess it's better because its the classic good vs evil story. Pokemon is the same "beat gym leaders to become the best" story recycled over and over.

Digimon Seasons 1 & 3 are awesome.

Digimon doesn't feel worthless. Pokemon?
Team Rocket fails
Team Rocket fails
Team Rocket fails
Ash fails
Ash restarts
Team Rocket fails
Team Rocket fails
Team Rocket fails
Ash fails
Ash restarts
etc. etc. etc.

Digimon?
Beat new bad guys
Big bad guys get stronger
Beat new bad guys
Big bad loses
Beat new bad guys
Big bad guys get stronger
Beat new bad guys
Big bad loses
etc. etc. etc. It's less repetitive.

I know, but after watching advature again. I just wondered why the pokemon Anime isn't that good. If the Manga is any indication they have decent writing at gamefreak.

Diamond in the Manga want's to be a comedian and Ruby wants to enter contest. Both are main characters who have barely anything to do with the gym battles.

Then there's the fact that Pokemon are just sparring, while Digimon FIGHT TO THE DEATH.

Because Digimon games suck.

Yay for tradeoffs.

Aside from generally having a stronger main plot and less filler, Digimon uses a different universe (almost) every season. The Pokemon anime gets weird because Ash has been journeying for well over a decade in real time, but isn't any closer to his goal now than when he started. Digimon has gone through six (almost) entirely independent full stories, each with its own beginning, middle, and end.
