Is there bad blood between SMT fans and Pokemon fans?

I was on the 3DS board and I see these topics about how SMT IV should be the big deal this year over X and Y.

I personally am a fan of both series, but I just want to know what the beef is between the two.

Probably because they're kind of the same concept (collection of mystical creatures used for fighting), but that's about it. From my experience SMT's stories are WAY deeper and more mature, and the collection aspect is the only thing they have in common, so I don't really see a need to argue. I like both series as well, especially the Persona games. I have yet to finish Devil Survivor though...

SMT fans need to realize that their francise has gone unnoticed until recently, thanks to persona 4's popularity.

I'm sure SMT 4 is going to sell much better than all the other SMT games due to the Club Nintendo offer.

No, it's just some random a*s hat who wants SMT to be as popular as pokemon( and to an extend persona) which will never happen for obvious reasons (religious themes).

I like both series but i favor pokemon more because it's been with me since childhood.

Not from what I've seen on the SMT IV boards. SMT fans and Persona fans(specifically 3&4) on the other hand.....

Only some the absolute worst jerkheads of both fanbases. Anyone sane actually realizes the two games are nothing alike.

In that case, I must be the most sane person on GameFAQs, period…

Gabumon: Although, I may be biased.

I know the beef between those 2. I got into SMT through P3 and P4.
