Digimon came first brah.

Do I have to repeat myself?

Pokemon first came out in 1996.
Digimon first came out in 1997.
Pokemon's concept started in 1990.
Digimon's concept started in 1995.

Pokemon came first. It only takes a few minutes worth of research to find this out.


digimon is the evolution of tamagotchis and you dont want to tell me they came after pokemon, do you?

I knew someone would eventually bring this into the argument...

Digimon wasn't the 'evolution' of the tamagotchi, though it was initially prototyped as a boys-only tamagotchi. The Tamagotchi continues to this day as a seperate device, though made by the same company, they are independent of each other.

Digimon is widely considered to be it's own independent franchise, and although it has connections to the longer running Tamagotchi, it's true beginnings were in 1995.

Now guess what this seems like a shock but digimon beat pokemon to this and the creators of digimon should be sueing the the hell out of pokemon for this. Digimon did armor digivoling way before this mega bull. Sorry pokemon try again. Digimon came first with the item to armor digivolve and now the mega stone comes out what ever right.

Well... To be honest. Pokemon isn't really ripping off of Digimon. They're just using overused ideas, really.

"Temporary evolutions".

Digimon doesn't really own that ^ .w.

Direct or not, a rip off is a rip off. Digimon was originally a Tamagotchi style game that only became what it is after Pokemon made it big; more elaborate evolution's, video games, trading cards, anime, and toys.


Pokemon was already big when Digimon began.

The initial video games were still virtual pets.

The anime was about as far away from Pokemon's anime as you could possibly get.

And what does "more elaborate evolutions" even mean?

The virtual pets evolved through five stages, with different possibilities based on how well you raised them.

The anime introduced the concept of artificial temporary evolution, in which an individual Digimon always evolved into the same Digimon.

I don't see how that is "more elaborate."

You act like Digimon started as one thing and then tried to be another when Pokemon came out.

While Digimon was obviously riding off of Pokemon's popularity, that doesn't mean it was a rip-off.

I wasn't aware Evolutionary Stones never existed.

And even if they didn't, "plot item that makes character change into more powerful character" is most definitely not something invented by Bandai.

Apparently DBZ, Gundam (you have to come out of the mech sometime and G Gundam overtly had powerups during battle), Precure, Sailor Moon, Winx Club, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne, Is This A Zombie, and many others haven't already done temporary transformations. Depending on the conditions it also might even be more similar to Trance mode in FFIX anyway.
