Two mighty phenomenons in Japan.

Monster Hunter is going for gen IV
Pokemon is going for gen VI

Both do the same "expansion" game that has more content than the first apperance of the gen and most people are going to get it. So which one is the biggest cash cow?

Im not talking about spin-offs, but main franchise games, which are still cash cows.

Pokemon. Monster Hunter isn't popular worldwide like Pokemon.

Love both series, though. Playing MH3U right now.

The answer is still the same. Monster Hunter may be big, but it's nowhere near as big as Pokemon.

Pokemon, easily.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Monster Hunter isn't popular world wide because Americans have been babied by their games. Most people don't play as many challenging games now days. I'm not saying everyone, but they had to drop the difficulty level significantly for people here in the U.S. to even want to look at it.

It's also suffered from bad advertising overseas since the PS2. Bad advertising and bad reviews, I suspect because the reviewer of Game informer got demolished by a giant, pink, featherless, fire-breathing chicken and then decided that he didn't want to play anymore.

It was Nintendo that helped them fix their advertising with Monster Hunter Tri but the series was slowly gaining popularity with it's PSP ports before it.


Pokemon is the bigger cash cow though. No question.
