Best decision of my childhood. by Aetherya Best decision of my childhood. by Aetherya

---------
First of all, DON'T YOU BASH EITHER OF THE TWO HERE in front of me. Besides myself being a Pokémon fan and that I have a deep respect for Digimon (especially for the anime), that would fly in the face of the very point of this stamp. Understood? Go bash them somewhere else. ;P

Second of all, I admittedly did not check if this stamp was already available, for the unwillingness to witness a stamps war that I felt was likely to be out there for this issue - so my apologies if it already exists.

---------
Just like the title says. It was one of the best decisions of my childhood. xDDD

That said, when I was a feckless slip of a child I DID once have a seething "jealousy" towards Digimon all because it just happened to come into fad among kids just as Pokémon was going out of one where I was... :XD: Well, but the idea of pitting them against each other just never happened to me. When I got over that jealousy soon enough, I realized it was a GOOD thing that I did. :D

Well, isn't that all there is to it? Just a bad timing. ;P

Not only Pokémon and Digimon, but the notion of "rival fandoms" makes me cringe very hard. All I can ever imagine is them chilling together over a drink or two and sharing their stories of lifetime, empathizing with each other for the similar cross to bear since their "formulae" are often alike, and being total bros in that Otherword of Fictions. :P

(I personally can't see Pokémon and Digimon doing even that... Compared with other series with shared formulae, I don't find them similar enough. :confused:)

After all, we don't pit two magical girl series or two mecha series against each other... at least not as "rival fandoms." I guess there is the Marvel vs. DC for the companies, but I personally haven't experienced something as ugly as Pokémon vs. Digimon. xP

Once again, no bashing of the either, please. ;)

Digimon belongs to Bandai.
Pokémon belongs to Nintendo.

Like I said before debating over which is better is childish. I came to like them both. Heck I even made a Pokémon OC based of  a Digimon character so what the heck! XD

Haha, I understand people who pit them against each other though. I actually did that at first but then I watched Digimon and realized it's very different. C:

I never really got involved in the war over which one is better. But in my personal opinion, I though Digimon was better than pokemon in some ways. Though I did really enjoy both of them, I was just a bigger fan of Digimon. When it comes to both, there are Digimon that I love and there are pokemon that I love and many moments in both shows I enjoyed.

But when it came to the first movies, I thought the Digimon one was better, but that's just my opinion. There are some pokemon movies I like, just the first one really wasn't my favorite ( but I still love Mewtwo and Mew from the movie, they were awesome )

There's a confession I always want to make.

As a Pokemon fan and not a Digimon fan, I cannot help but envy the Digimon anime...... xDDDDD

And theme songs. DAYUM dem theme songs. TqT

Besides a few Awesome spin offs from Pokémon the main Pokémon Anime has gotten downhill in my opinion. The Digimon anime however changes with each season.

It be awesome if there was a Pokémon series that changes with each season with new leads. Pokémon has plenty to work with on that department from the games and even the manga. Sadly that seems like a pipe dream from me.

iv learned that pitting Pokemon against Digimon is not a great idea. I had thought off doing so in the past but to do so can make me be the center of a rage war. it would be like pitting Star Trek against Star Wars its not a very wise idea. I myself is a pokemon fan im not that big off a fan of digimon but i had when it first came along with Pokemon but i guess Pokemon was more popular where i was and my interest in digimon died down. Maybe it will come back one day only time will tell.

YEESSS

People always ask me which one I prefer, and I like them both equally. ;_; I like the Pokemon games and the Digimon anime. That's all! D;

*in response to both posts*

Yeah, I think anyone who's a Poke/Digi fan has experienced the rivalry at least once in some way or another. Dx I wish that, instead of rival fandoms, they could just be like...bro fandoms or something.

Same same! ;3;

Right. ;_; Gah. So many of our minds working like "similarity = rivalry" or something... Dx

GAH! That happened to you? D: Maybe it WAS a good choice to make this stamp, for you if not for everyone else. :D

iv seen pokemon vs digimon stuff on youtube and my lord is some users who debate about it is just crazy. What is the point in debating about it or jumping at one another throats over which is better then the other? its pointless and rather ignorant. I personally owe you Aetherya a thank you for keeping me from making a unwise choice when i had considered pitting them together?
