The first 2 seasons of digimon were truly epic imo. I loved them. They didnt have the repetitive annoying characters that pokemon did. wargreymon was awesome.
The show actually had a level of maturity and violence to it. Pokemon lost it after the first season the movie that had a good bid of the big charlizard guy i think the 3rd movie was ok. rest was garbage.

Digimon, it was a more serious show imo. I did love both shows, but Digimon's first 2 seasons were awesome.
wonder why so many people are overlooking Digimon Tamers? Have you not seen it?
Digimon was soooo much cooler than Pokemon. But the Pokemon games are just classic.

I turned on Pokemon today and was able to stand it for maybe 40 seconds.
Despite my ava/sig combo and my liking Arcanine and some other pokémon more than digimon, I had to go with Digimon as being the better show.
My choice is heavily influenced by the (first?) Digimon movie. It showed a considerably darker and slightly more mature side to Digimon which I don't think Pokémon ever demonstrated. Got me much more invested, with the whole involuntarily evil twin thing. People being haunted by personal demons is always badass.
And not forgetting to mention mutha fudgin' Garurumon!!
I loved the first Pokemon season. But every season after is yust a repeat of the same stuff.
Didgimon had somewhat of a plot atleast even if it wasn't anny good and had lamer monsters it atleast tried to.
While I did watch Pokemon growing up as my saturday morning cartoons I also watched Digimon and Digimon was definitely the one I cared to watch more. I don't really remember how long I watched Pokemon but I always felt like they were repeating the same crap every season (I think I stopped around the beginning of the season that Ruby and Sapphire were based off of). I watched Digimon through Season 3 and imo it went 3>1>2 for me, though I preferred all of those seasons over pokemon.
What Pokemon always had over Digimon were incredibly fun games and while I preferred Digimon over Pokemon on television (and movie, really enjoyed the season 1 section of the first movie) I've always thought that Pokemon would be a cooler universe to have realized over Digimon.

"Didn't we have some fun...though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'No way' and then I was all 'We pretended we were going to murder you'......that was great"
Digimon Season 1 was my favorite. I loved the Myotismon and Etamon arcs. Tamers was good, but, if you ask me, was a bit more childish. To this day, I still remember seeing WarGreymon pissed off that MetalSeadramon killed Whamon with River of Power and then shredding MetalSeaDramon from the inside with Great Tornado.
I like both of the games but prefer pokemon. That said i think overall digimon was a better show. They've both had good and bad series though.
Also loved digimon evolution .
I am a huge fanboy of the Digimon anime(s), so I prefer those. The problem with Pokemon is, as others have said, Ash. He's a moron, at least the morons in Digimon learn how to be awesome :P
For games Pokemon >>>>>>>>>>>> Any other 'mon. Although Digimon have had a few good titles, too :P
Yeah, I have to go with the general 'Digimon for the Anime, Pokemon for the games' idea.
Lol, Digimon's theme song has just popped into my head. Stupid catchy thing, it's going to be there all day now.
DIGIMON, DIGITAL MONSTERS, DIGIMON ARE THE CHAMPIONS
Digimon all the way, loved that series.. been excited for every new episode. (As mentioned before, the Pokemon Games rocked).
Loved Digimon more. Better music, deeper story, characters developed and grown. good for laughing, crying and action :3
Pokemon the first season was good but i still prever Digimon over the first Pokemon season... the seasons afterwards where all the same so i dont mention them.
