So why did this franchise get pushed away by Pokemon?

Digimon, when it started was relatively big, Digimon World and Adventure are still remembered rather fondly.
So what happened?
Well, the games all tried different stuff, sometimes rather unsuccessfully instead of building up a stable fanbase for them, since quality varied from shit to great.
Most of Adventure was improvised after the Myotismon arc, since they did not expect it to succeed and Adventure 02, while remembered fondly of those who grew up with it and did not rewatch it, partly killed the anime franchise by being terrible in almost every way.
The following season, Tamers then got rid of the previous cast, causing kids to drop it, although it is arguably the best season and a good anime by itself.
It also should be noted that the English dub for all of Digimon is atrocious, messing with the music, script, adding terrible puns and being censored to fuck.
The seasons that followed did nothing to revive the franchise.

Well, what happened on Pokemon's side?
Well, Nintendo had actual marketing strategy behind what they did, the Gameboy games were well marketed, had the whole collect everything thing going on as well as encouraging to fight and trade your friends, as well as being split in two to maximize profits.
They also got an anime earlier, which resulted in kids thinking Digimon was a rip-off. It is also quite possible they saw what happened what happened to Digimon with the cast switch from Adventure to Tamers, which caused them to forever use Ash and Pikatchu forever, which is why the Pokemon anime is so terrible and isn't allowed to go anywhere.
The games were always pretty much stayed the same and had small upgrades over time, while having questionable quality, considering a terrible amount of time is spent mashing A simply to get through the "story" and random encounters.

The two had similar themes, but handled them differently, one played it safe, the other didn't.

Imagine if they localized Cyber Sleuth, it would very fucking likely fail because its a turnbased grinder like Dusk/Dawn, which was utter shit.

suck a dick nigger

Digimon world 3 was a turn based grinder and was freaking awesome.

Dusk/Dawn was shit because first, it was for a shitty handheld that was already taken by pokemon, which it tried to copy with the A/B bullshit of releasing 2 versions of the same game.
and second, it looked like garbage with its 16bit graphics or whatever.

>>253782642
we might as well try
>>
>>253782772
Digimon World 3 was fine because it had a nice setting, a card game within it that was fucking great and an actual storyline.

Still had its back broken by grinding and backtracking

Lack of consistency.

I never again want to watch my Rodent digivolve into a snake, then into a guy in a bull costume, and finally into a dragon. If they just nailed down the consistency, it would have had a much better base for future games to stand on.
I will most likely never play Digimon again, and will continue to buy whatever new Pokemon comes out. All while knowing in my heart, that Digimon could be so much better

>Waaaaah, they changed things in muh anime
Pokemon was handled by 4kids, the company all weebs hate because of muh censorship and generally known for changing everything.

So that isn't really an excuse.

From the radio drama
Ruki to Renamon

Audio

From Ruki.
This is Ruki. It’s Ruki. [1]
Renamon… you’re horrible.
I know it’s not your fault. But you really… you really are horrible. You suddenly turned smaller and went back home… and you said convenient things like, “We’ll see each other again” and—
…Sorry. I know I’m the one who’s saying horrible things. I know. Ever since then… I’ve been feeling like a shell. Every day, it feels like time is going by really slowly. I was simply being single-minded back then, but the time I spent with you strung me up somehow. I don’t know which is better for me now.
Those fights, when my life was put into danger numerous times… To be honest, I don’t feel like I want to do them again. But… then… what should I do? I don’t even feel like playing card fights anymore.
Lately, I’ve been getting along pretty well with Grandma… and Mom… It’s still kinda strange though. It’s not that I don’t like it… I think… But you know, I don’t feel like I’ve just lost my partner Digimon.
I… Maybe this will sound strange, coming from me, but… Renamon, you only stayed with me at first and followed my orders to make yourself stronger in battle… right? It was the same for me. It was my top priority as your Tamer to make you stronger and… actually, that was my only reason.
But, after staying together all this time, and going to the Digital World together, and becoming one, and evolving… When we became Sakuyamon, I remember a warm feeling surrounding me. A warmth that I’d never felt before.

It sort of felt like… the big sister I never had. That’s what I felt from you, Renamon. Strange, isn’t it? [laughs smally] Even I think so…
[struggling] Hey, Renamon. I… wanted… to talk with you more. I’ve become able to talk normally with Grandma and Mom these days, but… not about everything. You were so similar to me, Renamon… but you aren’t me. You’re much… much stronger. That’s why I feel like you’re my big sister. Although that’s just a recent thought of mine.
That’s why… I wanted to talk to you about so many things. Not just about battles, but like… about my late father… and stuff. [laughs smally] I guess you wouldn’t really understand stuff like that, but… you were the one who understood my feelings the best.
Thanks to you, I realized what my true self wanted to say, as well as the things I really wanted. I’m sure that, now… I can become much more honest with myself. I think I’ll be able to speak honestly with you about my feelings.
In the confusion when we parted… it was only intuitive to me, but there was one thing that I understood then… that we can’t be separated from each other like this. That’s why… I couldn’t say goodbye to you, Renamon. I couldn’t smile and say that we’d meet again.
I felt so frustrated with myself after that. It was kinda pitiful.
I don’t even have a clear idea about my own future, so I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe I’d just become an adult like this. I felt so disgusted with myself. I couldn’t help it.
The person that I am right now… I hate her.
What should I do?
Should I act like Takato and the others, and live positively with hope while believing that we’ll meet again?
… Don’t ask for the impossible.
Even I know… that things can’t stay like this. I’m sick of thinking hesitantly every day. If I’m not living for fighting, then… I must learn to just live here in the present and enjoy the air that surrounds me.

>>253792731
first, weapons, you fought with weapons instead of digimon powers.
second, there were no digievolutions, none that mattered anyway, digievolutions were merely "costumes" rewarded to you for doing long ass dungeons

the whole concept of 4 player game was nice but it was pulled off completely wrong for digimon.

4 was the biggest disappointment in the digimon series
>>
>>253793636
let me develop on the weapons point.

all weapons were shit except guns, which hilariously, were better melee weapons than melee weapons themselves all the while having long range attacks that stunned and pushed enemies back, literally making the game a cakewalk and all weapon types useless, just gun through everything.

waste of potential: the game.

i never even had more than 4 friends at the same time to play it

Never played Digimon games, but do they have the same large world and battles with other people, etc.? This is what kept me interested in Pokemon games, at least up to the third generation which I liked the most.

If they have something similar or better I'd like to try it out.

Digimon World 3 is like what you described and similar to Pokemon, except better in quite a few ways, but more grindy and backtracking.

How can you fuck up so bad? The game had everything it needed to be interesting and fun and then they decided you have to fight against the same Rookie Digimon forever, even though your Digimon are already all Ultra Level. You still got enough XP, but only because there was a random encounter every 3 steps.

The very premise digimon potrays is elitist and isolating. Hell the anime outright shows how emotionally fucked up the characters become throughout the series. Often times the characters only find happiness at the end when they're grown up and out of the digital world.

As good as the Digimon anime was it's no wonder the franchise never caught on.

As the animes go on it actually relaxes the requirements to get a digiman of your very own.

In the third season, when other kids get exposed to being around digimans, they get teamed up with the first nice one they meet.

The emotional shit is because they actually come across some darker shit, of course it will fuck with them they're only kids.

It's true that the requirements are laxed but often times the privilege of having a digimon is given only to childrn.

The problem is I 've watched the first 4 seasons to completion. And as I said before while the anime is good.

But it's the elitism and emotionally charged situations does in.

Not many children want to deal that kinda of shit, hell not many adults want to deal with it either.

Pokemon is a easy pill to swallow because it's premise is based on social equality. Yeah you might not be a great trainer or become champion but at least you are not barred from having pokemon.

The children thing I will concede, but for that I'd say that they're just easier to milk for EMOTION POWER so it just sticks on kids easier.

Well the social equality thing is more or less an undertone for pokemon. Just as isolation is a undertone in digimon.

The best way to notice those undertones is through the interactions the parents have with their children and digimon/pokemon.

>>253830329
Honestly. I think the American dub is good. The sub isn't BAD and it's pretty good in it's on right reaally. But the dub captures what I think made Digimon a good kids show. The light heartedness and the childish and silly humor.

I know everyone will say I'm just using buzzwords and ebin me mes. But the grimdark edgelord feeling of the original and Tamers isn't for me. As a kid or grown up I really enjoy 3 bean salad...but I only have one bean.
>>
>Faggots still arguing whether Pokemon or Digimon are better instead of looking at whether or not each series is good on its own
Fucking children I swear.
>>
>>253834606
Eh, digimon also really pushes the whole good emotion/bad emotion schtick.

Like in tamers. At first, you have the digimans doing the whole data absorption thing, and the kids are using the cards. That's because at first there really isn't a bond, they're just pets or tools to the kids at the time. Once they move past that and start thinking less "my X" and more "my friend the X", they start dropping that shit because in every series, digimon are supercharged by human emotion.

And of course, you always have that one episode where someone gets negative enough to have their mon have a "Bad" evolution. And it always ends up an unstoppable hellbeast. Granted, it also goes on a rampage, but what would you do if you were filled with so much power that your body couldn't handle it?

I don't understand the hate over english dubbed anime. Didn't the creators of digimon in particular also have the final say on whether they wanted a particular voice actor? I heard they did. So saying it's not "true to the original" is kind of silly considering the creators themselves decided who would voice characters in their respective languages.

The only thing that irks me is the writing/censoring. As far as the voices go, I can't understand why anyone who doesn't understand japanese would want to listen to it constantly while reading subtitles. All the voices sound so similar to me and frequently it's annoying because I don't understand a fucking thing they are saying.

Do anime fags LITERALLY enjoy listening to a language they can't understand while reading text? It works for 'foreign films' because actors aren't putting on ridiculous voices, but this is a cartoon. It sounds fucking insane.

You have fucking phenomenal taste.

Seen Wolf Children yet?

>Didn't the creators of digimon in particular also have the final say on whether they wanted a particular voice actor?
No, you retard.

Just see >>253837058 for differences in quality and voice acting

Opinions.

>>253841305
Nah, I don't watch much anime.
>>
>>253841614
>Worse music
>Censorship
>Puns shoved in
>Atmosphere changed (read: ruined)
>Plot and story arcs changed

Yeah, sure is opinions

>No, you retard.

Then who did?
>>
>>253841228
I dunno about the original writers having say in the voice cast. But s for your next question. Yes. anime fags would rather listen to "muh original" voices over dub.

Seriously, they dont even KNOW if the voice cast is GOOD in the subs, but they'll defend it until the day the weeb leaves them.

I might give it a whirl. Same people who did Summer Wars. It's very feels-heavy though, but is fucking masterfully executed (except for one 5-10 second scene that really, REALLY didn't need to be in there)
>>
>>253841807
In the English dub?
4kids and the superkike Saban

>You ought to give it a whirl

How did I fuck that up so bad.
>>
>>253841761
Yes, those are opinions you fucking retard. Do you not know the MEANING of the word? The only thing that's not an opinion is the plot/arcs being changed. Holy shit this guy doesn't understand English.
>>
>>253842025
Yeah, because changing plot and character arcs, shoving in puns and censoring unlike the creators intended are good things, sure fuckwit

Not that guy but I have. Wolf Children, Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. That guy makes amazing stuff.

Have I spoiled myself with the other two or is it still just as good?

It's actually been so long since I've seen it I can't really say. IIRC it's about a romance and it's pretty tear-jerky at times.

>>253843327
I think I could use some feels. I'll give it a look, thanks mang.

Not him, but I recently started playing this. Got andromon on my first serious go without letting my mon die thrice. Just got to the jungle.

There was this fact. Pokemon was a videogame that produced an anime to build its customer

Digimon was a toy that turned into a manga/anime that released games. The thing was, the products were all independent of each other.


In pokemon, you could act out the show with the games or see the game played out in the show.

With digimon, there was no such synergy. Digimon digital pet wasn't like the manga. The anime wasn't like the game. The games were their own thing.

Pokemon had a way better united front with their shit
>>
>>253844028
This and pokemon played before and after school. Digimon was just a Saturday cartoon thing until it was too late
