I have always been a bigger fan of Digimon than Pokemon. I'm not sure why, but maybe it's because Digimon can talk and interchange between strength levels? You're not just stuck with the evolved form of your stronger partner like in Pokemon. There are more intense battles, a heroic story line, and just awesome looking monsters. Eh, I could go on for quite a while on why I think Digimon is better than Pokemon, but this is not that post.
I give you my OC (original character): Pomegranmon! Special attack: Seed Gun >_< Plus she's super cute.
