Compared to Pokemon, why are Digimon sales crap?

Because Digimon games are confusing as all hell, hard to play, and doesn't have as much merchandise support.

I love Digimon, however their aren't any games available for the systems I own. And no anime on any channel that I subscribe to. Aside from that all the changes to methods of Digivolution have made it incredibly hard to follow.

I love the days of simple, digivolution, crest, warp, and armor. Pretty simple. DNA was pretty awesome, everything after that is.... well dumb.

I'm pretty sure Pokemon came out first.


lol no

Digivices came out earlier, as well as its originator, Tamagotchi

This. I mean Digimon World Dawn and Dusk were really good in my opinion. Certainly on par with Pokemon.

I was considering its predecessor Tamagotchi.

Playing Digimon Adventure PSP now since that game was released on Dec last month because it's the 15th Anniversary.

And I had to admit, this game is Bandai's greatest work EVER!

Also, they nailed the digivolution animation similar to the anime and the best part, excluding Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon, we get to see those 6 other rookie digimon Mega levels warp digivolutions!

Surprised by the lack of Digimon Rumble Arena and only one mention of Digimon Digital Card battle. Those games were godlike.
And it seems like i'm the only person that loved DW 2 and 3 and did not care much for 1. >_>

I'd say the problem with Dawn/Dusk is the huge amount of grinding you had to do to get a team right for you. It was confusing as he'll to get around, digi-converting was a chore after a while and there were little challenges after the Gaia Origin. I have a full team of max levels on that game and I actually have no way to show off for it. It could use a Battle Frontier structure IMO. Also, the game is riddled with features that are useless, seriously, why is there a computer for digivolving/converting and then one for moving them into your team? You can digivolve from the field!

Digimon games just need a check up, they have potential but lack a bit of effort.
