Is the Digimon anime better than the Pokemon anime?
Debate Rounds (4)
1.) The Pok"mon anime is repeatitive.
In the Pok"mon anime, each episode, the characters meet a character of the day, encounter team rocket, struggle, then live happily ever after. (Of course there are exceptions to this) Even when the character of the day asks Ash of he'll see him/her again, he never does. This may not bother a younger audience, but being more mature, it makes the show boring. In the Digimon anime, each episode builds up a long story.
2.) Each season is different and has very different features.
As each Digimon season passes, there are brand new characters, new digivices and a different setting. (Exceptions include the first two seasons) For example, in Digimon Tamers, their main source of power was from their Digimon (like in several other seasons) except the Tamers can biomerge with their Digimon replacing the mega digivolutions. In digimon frontier, the humans used spirits to transform theirselves into special Digimon. Each season has a new way of digivolving so to speak. In Pok"mon, there's STILL Ash, only there are different supporting characters, as for the pokedexes, they fufill the exact same purpose as any other pokedex, they just have different designs.
3.) The characters seem more human.
Especially in Tamers, Digimon did really well on building up their characters. For example, Rika was unaccepting and disrespectful towards Takato and Henry, but as the series went on, she grew from her mistakes and experience and slowly became more accepting of other people. In Pok"mon, Ash pretty much never seems to learn from his mistakes or grow from everything. It's like a robot.
Over all, Digimon is a better anime in general than Pok"mon. It has more depth, story, and it's not nearly as repeatitive as Pok"mon. (I do not plan to do any debates about the games since I haven't played any Digimon games :P)
P.S. This debate is mainly for the T.V. shows. Try not to make your arguments rely on movies.
btw digemon may look cool (i do like it) but in the world that they live in dosnt get hit until they defeat devimon then they face against a stronger opponent that is when they're world is hit
Ash may seem like he never ages but i grew up with it and i seee an adult under his kid self tht you see now he fights for what is right and for the good he helps people in need so to wrap this up pokemon has a bigger meaning than people see i see that picture as a kid who wants to be the very best like no one ever was, he is pushing beyond his limits of what he thinks he can and cant do that is whag i see
To bring up another point supporting my argument is that it doesn't make as much sence as Digimon does. One part of this includes the team rocket issue that I explained in the previous paragraph. Another part (that is often mentiond in memes and some debates) is that the ethics of pokemon are questionable. Is it truly moral for people to capture creatures and to store them into tiny balls and force them to fight? In digimon, most humans don't come in contact with Digimon and the only reason the humans have digimon is because they need each other to digivolve and become strong enough to fight the evil Digimon. Any Digimon who aren't the protagonist nor the antagonist live lives similar to how some humans/animals live.
Also, you said "yes pokemon may seem like it is confusing but team rocket is world wide". What makes you think that? Just because a group of two people stalks Ash doesn't mean it's worldwide.
"team rocket may seen like the bad people who try to take ashes pikachu and they always find newer things but they always fail" The whole purpose of team rocket is to be the antagonist (or villains). What do you mean find newer things? Is it that they find better Pok"mon to steal and give to "the boss"? Also, tell me this. If team rocket has found bigger, better and more appealing Pok"mon, why would they keep stealing Pikachu?
The rest of your argument was hard to comprehend due to your bad grammar.
But anyways, thank you for this debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Con's grammatical errors were far more severe than Pro's. Con had misspelling, lack of capitalization and lack of necessary punctuation. Pro was the only one to make an actual case for their anime. Con weakly tried t rebut Pro's case by mentioning confusion in the storyline of Digimon which wasn't even backed up by anything substantial.
