Thread: Mon design: Pokémon or Digimon?

  1. #31
    I believe the reason why Pokemon designs are more simplistic is because they’re more meant to parallel real world animals while Digimon can literally be whatever.

    On the other hand, because Digimon is such a mishmash of styles to begin with, fan Digimon creators have crazy freedom in designing Digimon..they can be humanoid, monstrous, overly detailed, nice and simple, etc etc. In all sorts of different styles, and they still feel like they could fit into the universe which is something I find really, really cool about Digimon and possibly why I'm still into fanmade Digimon creation now. I don't really participate in Digimon OCTs now but it's always awesome seeing all these crazy different styles of fan Digimon interact in the same space.
    Yeah, you're right about everymon has diversity in their designs, for Pokemon, it's different. Reminds me how much I had old Fakemon artwork that looked more Digimon-like than Pokemon making me realize they're better off being a fan Digimon than a fan Pokemon.

    i prefer digimon since they do what they are meant to do better in my opinion
    cool digimon are cooler than cool pokemon cute digimon are cuter than cute pokemon(culumon , plotmon and offmon are cuter than any pokemon imo.)
    creepy digimon are creepier than creepy pokemon etc.
    the only problem to me is sometimes digimon can look like humans in cosplay rather than creatures even if i like them too

    Mon design is actually one of the biggest reasons why I've always preferred Digimon over Pokémon. Pokémon has a clear "house style" that they've kept using for over two decades now. If that style doesn't appeal to you, it gets real boring to look at, real quick, since it never changes. After seven generations, they've still only come up with a handful of designs I like (i.e. Cosmog's evolution line). And even those don't compare to how cool the Royal Knights, Demon Lords and Banchos are, just as a couple examples.

    On a side note, it's kind of funny that a common complaint from Pokémon fans nowadays is that newer Pokémon "look like Digimon."

    Which never really makes any sense, since most Digimon are waifus, robots and dinosaurs - something Pokemon doesn't have except one Dinosaur

    Plus, so many guns and swords
