So many great and memorable Digimon references. This is not one of them.

Is Agumon a champion? I really do not know.

Agumon is a rookie (i think...)

Anyways, old news of calling this a digimon rip off, get over it.

So, it can't be both?

Not this again... I believe people have already explained the following:

- The naming conventions used in the Japanese and English versions of Digimon are different. Mega wasn't actually used in the Japanese version.

- Pokemon came first, and if anything Digimon would be a Pokemon ripoff, which it isn't.

On that point, the art styles are different. The respective first installments (Red/Green and the first digital pets) came out in 1996 for Pokemon, 1997 for Digimon. Pokemon's concept started in 1990 (under the prototype name Capsule Monsters), Digimon's in 1995.

There's more, but these topics annoy me. Both as a Pokemon fan, and a retired Digimon fan. I don't like seeing a series I currently enjoy accused of being a ripoff of one of my nostalgic favourites.

Particularly by overdefensive fanboys of either series that can't spend even 5 minutes to do the basic research that proves them wrong.
I gave up and did the 3DS transfer anyway...

It's funny to hear (and read) people claiming the Pokemon is ripping off Digimon when, back in the nineties, it was Digimon that was ripping off Pokemon after Pokemon's break out success.

Way I see it, we've just come full circle.
