As I’m sure everyone knows Pokemon has just announced a new Pokemon game titled sun and moon. Many people me included is very excited about the new game.
But now because of that it got me thinking if another anime could become popular or stand the test of time like Pokemon has. I know that many have tried like for example Digimon
but to me it just didn’t have the staying power like Pokemon did. Nor did it seem to span so many different types or merchandise like Pokemon did.
Now before many of you start to mention Dragon Ball Z as an anime that is quite popular and has stayed popular that is true.
But Dragon Ball Z while staying popular I haven’t seen a huge uproar when new products are released like I seem to hear with Pokemon.
Dragon Ball Z to me has more of a nostalgic aspect to it then Pokemon does. Maybe it’s because Pokemon is still on TV and airs during a nice little time slot compared to other anime’s.
So back to the question! Do you think another anime could be popular like Pokemon and my answer is probably not since any anime that comes out similar to it will be compared to Pokemon. It would have to take a great anime and game combo to be able to de-throne Pokemon.
But what do you all think? Comment down below with your opinions. I can’t wait to read them!
