Dude I've loved Digimon since I first saw it. I've seen nearly all of season 1 and 4, and I've a lot of the other seasons episodes. So come on people, fess up.
I know there has to be some one out there who still loves to watch Digimon!
Digimon is so much better than Pokemon, but it's still weak. Dual Masters is better.

Oh! Oh! I like Digimon!! ^_^
Season 1 for me!!!.. Season 2 was alright... and I just don't get Tamers and Frontier... @_@.. I guess I prefer the original cast...
And yes, it's definitely better than Pokemon.. it has a plot! (sorta..)
Nov 6 2004, 05:59 PM
i'm a huge fan of pokemon and digimon seasons 1, 2, and 4.
and i'm DAMN PROUD of it
Nov 6 2004, 06:31 PM
Same here! I'm PROUD to be a Pokemon and Digimon fan. I liked Adventures, Tamers, and Frontier, but I wasn't a big fan of 02...
Nov 6 2004, 06:36 PM
How can you like pokemon?? they catch wild animals and force them to fight eachother...
well to be honest... it sucks... altough i did play it with my friends... they forced me... (like ash...
pokemon and digimon is kinda
Nov 6 2004, 07:20 PM
After awhile I lost track of which season is which.
But I remember I used to watch Pokemon religiously until Ash entered that tournament thing and lost. It didn't feel quite the same after Brock left. Then recently I saw it and got totally confused since Brock is back and there is a girl who was not Misty.
I also watched Digimon season 1 and 2. Season 1 was kind of stupid and had way too many characters, but I watched it for Sora and later, Kari.
I think Digimon has a superior artwork to Pokemon, plus every now and then it actually has pretty funny jokes.
Didn't really like Monster Rancher etc. (Got tired of the whole monster thing by then.)
Nov 6 2004, 09:16 PM
okie... let's see... i'm not a big fan of pokemon (but the monsters are just so cute that i just buy plushies of them), and i only watched digimon because of some characters.
i watched digimon 02 because of Ken Ichijouji and Miyako Inoue, but didn't really like the story.
i love digimon tamers because the concept is just more plausible and their digimons don't have to evolve over and over and over again in one episode alone and they look cool and battle-ready. And the kids aren't as goody-goody.
digimon frontiers... well, i didn't even bother.
Nov 7 2004, 01:47 AM
I really only liked season 1 of Digimon. As for Pokémon, I used to be a Pokémon Master back in my time.
Beat all the boys in my class with my little GBC. Not sure if that's something to boast about though.
But as for Pokémon the anime, I found that it was quite good compared to the other stuff that was on. I actually enjoyed the dubs. Digimon and Pokémon were actually some of the best dubs I've seen.
Nov 7 2004, 08:32 AM
Next to FMA Digimon is my favourite anime series!(It used to be my absolute favourite, but then I saw FMA... soo...). I just started watching it thinking that it was a copy of Pokémon, the other anime series I had had the chance to watch at that time, but it turned out to have quite a few differences, like the existence of a plot, which I absolutely adored. I loved the characters and character development and the great in depth in the story, which was so beautitful(sniff). The series also effected my way of thinking and attitude towards things. Well, that was Adventure and I'm currently following 02, which will be finally shown to the end(after great pleading from Digimon fans) in the original language with subtitles. The first season dubbing wa so bad at first, that I'm sure that it was a major turn off(besides younger kids). I still watched it though despite it and luckily that did change. I still prefer the original Japanese one though. I doubt I'll ever get to see Tamers or Frontier here on TV. It's sad, but I don't suppose either will beat Adventure(first season). I've liked 02 so far, but still prefer the first.
I liked the first season of Pokémon, but I think that I started to want a plot or some change into it. The series should have just ended or changed characters/story or something.
Nov 7 2004, 03:10 PM
i really liked Digimon first and 2nd season, (becz they are sort of connected in story lines), 3rd season was weird, the 4th one was good where they transform into digimons lol and the dub quailty was good too
Nov 9 2004, 06:05 PM
I can't believe all you guys love digimon!
Then again, I guess I should... Oh, well, it's still cool! Personally, seasons 1 and 4 for me! I like the idea of humans digivolving.
Nov 10 2004, 05:03 AM
Mewtwo and Wargreymon RULLEEEZZAAAAA!!! TOT
Elite badss non human fighters >W<
Angelmon look a bit handsome, wish female angelmon had no mask to see her face @W@
Nov 10 2004, 03:04 PM
My sister thinks wargreymon is awesome too.
Nov 10 2004, 03:19 PM
I don't even remember who wargreymon is...it's ben too long...
Nov 11 2004, 04:43 AM
Taichi's Digimon, Agumon(from the first season) changes (or warp digivolves) into Wargreymon, his mega form. (enabled first time when Taichi was shot by the arrow of light).
I love Wargreymon!(and of course BlackWargreymon...) mostly because my favourite Digimon is Agumon: the cute, brave glutton with a scorching baby flame
. Oh... I still admire his and Taichi's courage and will power.

Nov 12 2004, 10:27 AM
OK~ i still like it just a little
Nov 14 2004, 08:23 AM
i so totally love digimon!!!!! i have collestors cards and fighting deck cards.... i love them. it's so great to sit down and watch it with my sis. i like to watch pokemon with her too. my fiance can do a great guilmon voice... i can do calumon and sarah, my sis, can do terriermon. it's great fun.
Nov 17 2004, 09:34 PM
i really liked the first two seasons, but the last two were really quite ridiculous
i wanted to know more about tai, and matt (he is soooo fine) and kari, and all the other little nerds.
Nov 18 2004, 12:17 AM
QUOTE(SailorSev @ Nov 17 2004, 10:34 PM)
matt (he is soooo fine)
Darn straight. I loved the guy, too. And Izzy. Then again, I'm just attracted to those types.
Nov 18 2004, 05:37 AM
Yamato(matt) is always so popular*sighs*. Go Taichi! Although all those little kids are cute
. Well, most kids are cute anyway.
I haven't seen 02 to the end yet, but i know that the end was kind of final. Pity... I'd like to see the kids when they're older, but I guess the main chracters always have to be young
. Tamers and Frontier seem pretty interesting though... if I ever get to see them..*sighs again*.
Nov 18 2004, 06:22 AM
Really? I don't really like Matt. I don't know, he seems kind of arrogant and stuff. But I don't like Tai either. Somehow he's made himself the leader of the group and that's just saying something.
Hehe, none of the guys in Digimon is adorable until the latter seasons.
Nov 18 2004, 10:16 AM
Matt was arrogant at times, but I love the way he is so concerned about T.K. and when his soft side shines through every so often.
Nov 18 2004, 10:32 AM
Hey, I never said I liked his attitude, just his face ^__^
Nov 18 2004, 04:10 PM
Ah..Digimon...I have seen every single eppisode to date released in the US...I saw the movie (great fun...but didn't see it in theaters T.T) I own many of the actionfigures....and can name just about every single digimon by heart by seeing a picture of them....
And thechnicaly...pokemon is a ripoff...sorta...of Digimon....because the Digimon giga-pet came out with Tomagotchi....and that was...i think...2 years before Pokemon came out in the US....so...Digimon wins...
My all time favorite has, and will always be, Gabumon...I dont know why...but I love him so....its gotta be the fur...XD
Nov 18 2004, 05:59 PM
I loved Gabumon as well! He's my favorite, too, out of all of them, digi-volved or not.
Nov 18 2004, 06:09 PM
Gabumon is Matt's right? I'm really curious how he looks like whe he takes off his skin for Matt during the snowstorm. Haha, Digimon can be so ridiculous at times it's hilarious.
Nov 18 2004, 06:24 PM
Ohh, yes. I've wondered about that myself. I think he'd be cuddly with or without the fur. Well, maybe less without.
Nov 18 2004, 06:26 PM
The question is how is he able to do that in the first place. Does his skin have a zipper attached or something?
Nov 18 2004, 07:22 PM
Hee hee. Zipper. Maybe he does, Gashole. Maybe he does . . .
Nov 19 2004, 04:28 AM
a zipper... that's the only explanation
Hmm... and Yamato is popular mostly for his looks... well I never thought to much of those
I kind of felt sorry for his messed up state and because he always felt threatened by Taichi... and then he dragged poor Gabumon into it too. His stubborness lead him into a lot of brawls with Taichi...
Taichi and Agumon forever! I admire Taichi's attitude and strength. He had to deal a lot with being the leader and all, and it actually wasn't even his choice. He probably was loaded with too much responsibility for a guy like him. Such a strong character
, but not without natural weaknesses...
Nov 20 2004, 03:51 PM
Yeah, Taichi is my favourite character, with Yamato being in close-second.
Yamato's stubborness lead him into a lot of brawls with Taichi, but Taichi was stubborn too. (since when has any leaders been not stubborn?
) It was nice to see how much Taichi and Yamato have both grown at the end of the series. :,3 I kinda miss the series now...
Nov 21 2004, 05:38 AM
Leaders have to stubborn and keep their own opinions.. If they were submissive then they wouldn't be leader types, right?
Sometimes I even think that Taichi was more stubborn than Yamato... and more ignorant about what was happening. Sora and Yamato would have to make him see things once in a while(Yamato by hitting him...). Still, Taichi did have the amazing skill of having people follow him(yeah..Yamato was a rebel
), getting everyone together, being reckless(now is that a skill..or?) Without him the chosen ones wouldn't have got that far
Plus he was the most fearsome fighter in my opinion... Agumon and he did do more fighting than anyone else..
yeah... I do like Yamato too despite his arguments with Taichi. And I loved their deep friendship, which was one of the key factors in the series... oh dear...I miss the series too *sighs*. I've mentioned before that this was my absolute favourite and still is (next to FMA)...I just love Digimon Adventure(should maybe get the DVDs from somewhere...)!
Nov 21 2004, 07:46 AM
Aren't Digimon Adventures DVD a bit hard to find?
I personally thought Digimon Adventures was done a lot better than 02...But I never really liked 02 anyway...
Ah...It's been so long since I've talked about Taichi or digimon. You're making me miss this series more now!
Nov 21 2004, 09:49 AM
I'm making you
miss the series?
What about me then?
Of course my personal favourite would be Adventure.. but I really like 02 too
. Still, nothing can match the first original one. Everything after that are like sequels and sequels don't beat the first one, right?
Waah... there aren't any DVDs??? It's not like I could have afforded them anyway. Luckily I have the last eps from Adventure (and am currently taping the last of 02) on tape(taped from TV) so.. it's not totally hopeless
Nov 21 2004, 09:58 AM
I've seen the manga adaptation of the anime. Doesn't have the same feeling as the anime, in my opinion.
The only thing I've got that's Adventure is the movie...
Nov 21 2004, 10:39 AM
i like digimon season 1 it was better than season 3
Nov 21 2004, 10:53 AM
Oh...I have read the first volume of the manga and glanced at the others. I liked it, but it's definitely not the standard of the anime! The story has been squeezed into just five books and with 02 it is into just two! *shudders*. All the vital messages and the feeling... gone. It is entertaning and funny though.. but well..
Oh, I have the movie too! But that's the American version(dubbed in Finnish of course). I laughed so much during that film. I loved it even though I would have prefered the original. In the USA they insert their own jokes
. Same with the series... and certain parts were cut out. I'm lucky to have seen the original, but I don't suppose the USA version was too bad...
Riza Babe: but you liked the 3rd season too???
Nov 21 2004, 02:52 PM
Right...I sorta skimmed this topic but anyways:
I used to watch digimon ages back, but it was always entertaining, back then i used to miss it down to damn saturday schools (why you don't go to private schools, that and the people sometimes). The first series rocked, but it seriously went downhill, the second series dragged on, it was kewl when the bad guy became good though and him and the main dude's digimon combined though.
3rd series.....uh watched a couple of episodes, crap. Probs because i just didn't like the card thing.
btw, did anyone used to play with those battle digimon things, i had one or two before the series even started, it was so kewl raising and then battling them lol, happy times, happy times.
Nov 21 2004, 03:30 PM
@Aqua_Alchemist: Do you mean the tamagotchi digimon or the digivices?
@Kihaku: I've never watched the USA version, only the original. But I actually prefer Taichi's dubbed voice over the original...
Nov 21 2004, 04:45 PM
I've only seen the English dub, too. Used to follow it everyday when I came home from school, because I was that smitten with it (and Matt . . . ). The dub was acceptable indeed. Stopped watching after there were too many reruns though, but I've seen the whole series now. Season 1, at least.
Not that I really remember much of it.
Nov 21 2004, 06:50 PM
yeah, i don't think the dubs were that bad. my favorite characters are taichi, takeru, and takuya. daisuke would be cooler if he wasn't after hikari, cause i'm a takari supporter
i didn't really get Tamers so i didn't watch the whole thing, and i really hated whatsherface's name...jeri, or something. i liked takato's friend though, the one with the visor and cross on his t-shirt and i think he had guardromon. oh yeah, and ken's pretty cool too later on. for digimon i love all the patamon evolutions, all the veemon evolutions (except for....veemon), terriermon, agunimon and etc, lobomon and etc, aaand more that at this moment i can't remember.
so what pairings do you guys like? if at all? i was kind of put off that
Spoiler: (Click here to Display)
Nov 21 2004, 07:31 PM
Pairings? It's got to be TaichixSora and TakuyaxIzumi.
No matter how it ended, I will always be a taiora supporter.
Nov 22 2004, 09:06 AM
I've only seen a bit of the USA dub and I liked it and the voices, just not the fact that they altered things and cut scenes out. We had the original dubbed in Finnish, but the voice were an absolute terror! The only thing most people could say about Digimon was "it has horrible voice acting". At least it got better later on(that's when I started taping it), and now I can watch/hear the original ones. I somehow like it better. I don't really care much for Finnish VAs.
I always thought that Taichi and Sora would be a couple! It was so hinted at the start of the series! Like when he rescued her from the pyramid, or when Garudamon was protecting them from Mammothmon and they were in each others arms..well technically
... but then there was that twist! Argh! Even Taichi and Yamato fit better together than Yamato and Sora! But then.. he always has Daisuke, who I also see with Ken
I didn't think Ken and Miyako had enough chemistry together to back them up.. another twist..so taisuke it is
. I suppose the only thing I was satisfied with was Mimi and Koushirou.
Hikari and Takeru belong together, although I feel a bit sorry for Daisuke... they were the only two to be the chosen ones twice, they have a mutual connection, compatable angels, their older brothers together...only half kidding there, but I hope you get what I mean (notthat
Nov 22 2004, 02:57 PM
If I had to choose, it'd be Taito instead of Taisuke. (Let me reinforce though, Taiora all the way!
) Taichi and Daisuke are a bit too alike in my opinion. Of course, Taichi is superior to Daisuke in every
Nov 23 2004, 01:43 AM
I guess my name is a big tip-off as to my answer to this thread's question. XD
But, my favorite season was 02, hands down. Great plot and characters were amazing! (Ken-chan!)
Favorite pairing....Izumi x Junpei. I'm one of the few on the planet, I suppose. XP
Nov 23 2004, 02:12 AM
awwww...how come no one likes season 02? I thought that one was the best season...probably cuz i liked Ken and Davis..XP
pokemon was okay, but it got old after awhile cuz they didn't replace Ash. Each season had him as the main character....to be honest..Ash sucked...O_o
I got really mad when they took Brock off. You know they got bad ratings in Japan for that season that Brock was gone?! XP
Nov 23 2004, 02:14 AM
I just said I liked season 2. XD Ken and Daisuke were both great characters~
Nov 23 2004, 06:27 AM
Kasumi: Exactly! Taiora forever.. next of my favourites would be taito(becuase of the certain compatibility), but the anime actually leaves taisuke as the only option I can really back up
kangtasangel828: exactly one of the reasons why Dgimon rules over Pokémon... plus then the thing with the plot.
And there are many who like season 2(guess you missed Izumimon's post?) I just like Adventure more
Nov 23 2004, 02:31 PM
02 wasn't bad...but I just never really got into it. It didn't catch me the way the first series did. (must've been the lack of Taichi-ness.
By the way, has anybody heard "Bokura no Digital World"? Just curious...
Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation was done well, in my opinion...Actually all were good, except Johto... Anyway, don't mind me, I'm just one of those very few, still existing, loyal Pokemon fans.
