      Meanwhile Pokemon has a ton of spinoffs and almost all did well.

        Yes, the difference is that pokemon started with one type of genre, "perfected" it, and monopolized it before moving on to spinoffs.

                I don't really take having one sequel as a sign of success. Hell, Detective Pikachu is more known for the movie than the game
                Also Coliseum barely even feels like a spinoff. They just made Stadium 3 and gave it a story mode

      Digimon failed because it's a obtuse mess.

      I still don't fully understand how digimon work when it comes to evolution. do digimon STAY evolved, like pokemon? do they revert back like pokemon mega evolutions? growing up my only interaction with digimon was the show and it seemed like digimon only evolved on a per fight basis and then would go back to their basic baby forms. That alone is what deterred me from the franchise.

      Digimon are just tamagotchi. There's no "game", they could have gone in any direction.

            There comes a point where things are too complex. All those mons, with all those various ways to digievolve them. As an adult it would be easy enough to grasp. As long as they are explained in game so way. If not, there is gonna be endless guides for it anyways.
            But for the casual and literal children? It's too intimidating to get into. Too much of a time investment to just get a fricking Wargreymon, which is not even a final form. Now that I think of it, Black Wargreymon is not even on that chart.

      it works different depending on continuity but basically they only devolve in the anime
      and even monsters in the anime usually only devolve if they're a human's partner

          simple. The higher level forms are generally pretty edgy looking and don't have the mass market appeal that the lower forms have. No one would buy a Metal Greymon plush over an Agumon plush. Also it allows them to save money by having evolution stock footage in the anime

          But yeah, even in like the manga series, Digimon will never devolve even if they are partnered with humans

              Not much sense investing in "in-universe structure" when basically every single new Digimon product (except Adventure 02) was also a new continuity with a new set of rules for a long while. And when even when they kept the same continuity (like with Adventure 02), they changed the rules anyway

              So Pokemon? Remind me again why doesn't the professor who studied Pokemon all his life doesn't know about the Pokemon in the grass outside his house, or the Pokemon caught and trained by random civilian trainers in the next town over?

              • 1 month ago
                Anonymous

                what does the professor have to do with the fact that digimon follow different evolution rules depending on whether you're watching the anime or playing the game. Thats a pretty basic distinction. It also helps that pokemon don't have moronicly edgy designs, but that comes down to having an editors eye, which the digimon artists clearly didn't. The stronger looking pokemon can still just as easily have plushies (and they do) and it doesn't look stupid because their design was thoughtful from the onset (at least in the first few gens). Digimon, right out of the gate, had moronic designs ON TOP OF having no rhyme or reason between how a core feature of the IP (evolving) worked. Digimon needed to pick a lane and stick to it, and they couldn't even do that.

                JUST SAID that Digimon failed because they prioritized toy appeal over in-universe structure, now you're saying Pokemon was better because they did just that?

                I mean they did, at least in terms of who they were trying to appeal to
                Pokemon was targeting basically everyone, Digimon was intentionally more niche, aiming mostly for the chuuni preteen boy audience. Hence why the designs tend to be a lot edgier or sexier than what you see in Pokemon. The fact that they devolve is just throwing a rope towards the periphery demographic

    cybersleuth + hackers´s memories + complete was easily the best selling digimon game ever, and digimon survive was also one of the best selling visual novels ever (at least the 3rd best seller, assuming it hasn´t sold over 700 000 units already).

    The problem is bandai doesn´t want to make digimon games.

    I just want a game that's like Sugimori's Pokemon concept. An open, untamed world with creatures. Pal had potential but the designs are slop taken from NuPokemon and the gun stuff is moronic. Arceus was in the right direction but the map is pretty uninspired. Maybe Switch technical limitations, maybe GF just sucks.

        That's why I liked Arceus. You can set it in an un-united world. I would just go the early FF/DQ/Zelda 2 route and have a wild world but small towns spread among them. Long stretches of roads plagued with bandits and wild creatures. Of course for pokemon its already too late, you'd have to disregard too many games and lore, oh well.
