    I would really like to use Wikimon, but the fact they're a bit strict with the names is a problem (Instead of using the US names, they use the Japanese names. Normally this isn't a problem given how few Digimon have their names changed in the US, but most Digimon I tend to look up happen to be one of those few..........).

    By the way who the heck is the one Digimon being compared to Drapion in that pic? I have no clue who that one is......

    IMO, the Digimon anime had a better plot than the Pokemon anime.

    Game-wise, Pokemon dominates.

    It seems people come here without knowing the purpose of the thread.

    The digimon compared with Drapion is Scorpiomon(SkullScorpiomon in America because they already named Anomalicarimon that way, which isn't even a scorpion...)

    The only dub name I prefer over the Japanese one is ShadowSeraphimon's(BlackSeraphimon in Japan)...Why?
    1. There's already a BlackSeraphimon in Digimon World 3
    2. He...well, he isn't black...at all.

    Tepig->Boarmon
    Swanna->Swanmon
    Would Tentacruel and Dagomon be comparable?

    Armaldo would actually be a better representative for being close to Scorpiomon/Anomalicarimon because.. tahdah- they are both based on Anomalicaris, an extinct giant arthropod, also actually shrimp. But since THE anomalicaris is an arthropod.

    But i do agree that Skullscorpiomon is kinda like drapion

    also Gesomon is more like tentacruel

    I just...I just can't call Anomalocarimon by that name (by Scorpiomon). It...isn't a scorpion XD
    I never thought about that...Armaldo->Anomalocarimon is a pretty good one!

    Read what SSJ_Jup81 said:

    For example... Angemon=Ange.mon=Angel monster

    Err...I don't think I've explained this very well, but SSJ_Jup81 sure did XD, so that was not really needed.

    I just realized that Archelomon looks EXTREMELY simalar to Purotoga :/


    And Guardromon and Gobitto

    And I always think that the Bandai pictures of Digimon are like the Sugimori art of Pokemon! XD

    You mean Emboar->Boarmon. Even though Emboar doesn't stand on four legs, Emboar trying to stand quadruped might make it look like Boarmon. Like in this fanart

    I agree, but it's more like the opposite, considering Archelomon is older. That may not be important, but some people insist so much with the ripoff "argument" that I think I became too defensive...
    And Guardromon and Gobitto
    Guardromon and Gobitto look similar, and so do the poses in those pictures... The problem I see here is that while Guardromon is a robot, Gobitto is a golem...

    And seeing Emboar that way... Yes, it is definitely a better match.

    Exactly. even though, the last season of digimon is very very bad. But pokemon's story line is so repetitive. they think that by changing the secondary characters they jump the shark. no.


    What's a moovee?

    1) That is not the point of this thread (which has been stated at least six times already)
    2) Which one? Frontier or Data Squad? And I'm not sure you know what "jump the shark" means. - IF YOU WANT TO REPLY, VM ME, DO NOT POST YOUR RESPONSE HERE

    I wanna say Vritramon (not entirely sure how to spell that one, but it's Burning Greymon in the dub) - Charizard, but I have a feeling there's a better one out there... :/

    I can't think of anything better for Charizard...
    What about Salamence->Examon.

    *shrugs* Not bad, but Examon could also work for a lot of dragon-types.
    Ho-oh/Moltres - Hououmon/Zhuqiaomon. Easy-peasy.
