[Game Preview] Playoff Edition Wildcard Round - Chicago Bears (12-4) vs Philadelphia Eagles(9-7)

2019.01.03 21:08 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Playoff Edition Wildcard Round - Chicago Bears (12-4) vs Philadelphia Eagles(9-7)

Philadelphia Eagles (9-7) at Chicago Bears (12-4)
Old Saint Nick delivered his Christmas gift of putting the Eagles in the playoffs with a little help from his next opponent the Chicago Bears who beat their division rival Redskins to knock the Vikings out of the playoffs allowing the Eagles to sneak in with their win over the rival Redskins. Nick will have to use all the magic left in that big ol dick of his this week as the Bears come into the game with the best defense in football and are in the top 10 in nearly every defensive category. Their defense was good last season, but went to great when they traded for Khalil Mack before the season started. Mack is a terror for opposing offenses with 12.5 sacks and 6 forced fumbles this season, the Eagles OL and Nick Foles will need to know where Mack is at all times on the football field. I expect the game plan will be similar to when the Eagles played Mack last season using a variety of double teams to keep him off his game. On the otherside the defense has been playing better of late and shut out the beat up Washington Redskins offense holding them to mere 89 yards on offense. They will be put to the test this week taking on Matt Nagy's offense that Trubisky has thrived in this season. The DL will need to find away to get past a talented Bears OL and wreak havoc in the backfield to make Trubisky uncomfortable and stop the talented 1-2 punch of the Bears run game. The game will be a chess match between two old friends who should be very familiar with one another. Not only to Pederson and Nagy both come up under Andy Reid, but they both joined the Eagles staff in the 2009 and 2008 seasons and stayed with Reid when he went to Kansas City with Nagy taking the QB coach position and Pederson taking the OC slot. So coaching together for 7 straight seasons should give each other some ideas what the other will do and make for an entertaining football game. Go Birds!

Eagles 31 - Bears 3
he game many expected could be a trap for the Eagles turned into a rout of the Bears 31-3. The Eagles controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage and dominated the Bears running backs sending them the wrong direction as they ended the day with -6 yards rushing. The Eagles secondary also picked off Mitch Trubisky twice on the day. On offense, the Eagles running game was on point as they ran for 176 and Carson Wentz threw for 3 TDs and 227 yards before an early exit in the 4th quarter to prevent injury and give Nick Foles some playing time. The Eagles had their first 100 yard receiver this season as Zach Ertz crossed the century mark. The game wasn’t perfect though both Blount and Ajayi fumbled the football running and Malcom Jenkins fumbled after making a nice interception.

Eagles 29 - Bears 16
In Wentz’s second career game he threw for 190 yards and a TD while showing plenty of poise, just as he did in his debut against Cleveland. Ryan Mathews found the end zone two times rushing. The Eagles held the Bears in check most of the day and while Philadelphia was pulling away, Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler walked to the locker room with a right thumb injury and did not return. That was the biggest blow for the Bears (0-2), who lost several players and fell again after opening with a loss at Houston. It's not the sort of start they envisioned in their second year under coach John Fox after finishing last in the NFC North. But they continued to struggle at home, where they were 1-7 in 2016.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video – The Eagles looked to keep their season alive and Super Bowl MVP came out to play as Foles threw tied an NFL record for most consecutive completions when threw 25 straight completions that were part of 221 yards 2 TD 1 INT stat line. On the other side of the ball, the Eagles were even more dominant against a beat up Redskins offense holding them to a paltry 89 yards on offense in a shutout. Fletcher Cox feasted with 3 sacks in the game and Douglas had an interception as the Eagles got the job done against their division rival.
Bears - Video – The Bears took on their division rival with a bye at stake if the 49ers were able to pull an upset over on the Rams. The Vikings had more to play for as they were win and in for the playoffs came out flat as the Bears dominated them in every aspect of the football game. The Vikings 84 million dollar man does what he does in big games and crumbled throwing for just 132 yards and a TD. Meanwhile, the Bears refused to let up as Howard and Cohen combined for 134 yards and 3 TDs on the ground. Once the Ramns game was out of reach many backups came in for the Bears, but it didn't make a lick of difference as they held onto the win and knocked their division rival out of the playoffs allowing the Eagles to sneak in who they will play this Sunday.

Fun Fact
On New Year’s Eve, 1988, the Eagles lost a postseason heartbreaker to the Bears in Chicago, in a game that has gone down in history as “The Fog Bowl.” Meteorologically, the title was well-earned. Lake Michigan sent a blinding sheet of fog over Soldier Field late in the first half, and the haze stayed put until the very last play. Visibility was so bad that most players couldn’t see beyond 10 yards in front of their faces. Up in the public address booth, Bears play-by-play announcer Jim Riebandt had to get game updates relayed to him from an usher who was standing on the field with a two-way radio. Video

PFF Stats to Know
Chicago Running Backs
Tarik Cohen and Jordan Howard are going to need to be planned for. With injuries to the Eagles' defensive backfield, it's going to be a major task. Let's get to it. Cohen and Howard will not get many yards after contact (the Bears' offense generally does not generate much YAC or RAC). Cohen is ranked 58th and Howard is 37th in rushing yards after contact per attempt Cohen is tied for a close 2nd in % targets for overall snaps and 7th in % of his targets coming from the Slot. When aligned in the Slot, though, Cohen has generated the 2nd-most Yards Per Route Run, at 3.19. Overall, Cohen has the highest YPRR and 3rd-most receiving yards of RBs. Cohen has had an atrocious 7 fumbles in 2018 (3 lost). Jordan Howard is 7th in 1st Downs generated and 47th in Yards Per Attempt. Howard is 6th in Rushing Attempts (250), still, for 935 yards (14th).

Matchups to Watch
Eagles Offensive Line vs. Bears Pass Rush
The Eagles snuck into the playoffs after week 17 with some help from their current opponent 10 years after the 44-6 beat down of the Cowboys to accomplish the same feat. The Eagles enter the playoffs as the 6 seed and rightful underdogs even with the recent success and face a Bears team that is strong on both sides of the ball - especially on defense. There are many layers to this matchup but for the Eagles it'll always start up front. Prior to the season the Bears traded for Khalil Mack after Jon Gruden decided to be an idiot. The Bears defense was already pretty good but Mack pushed the unit over the top. The Eagles have game planned for Mack before when he was on the Raiders and held him in check for the most part. However, the depth of talent on the Bears defensive front far surpasses the talent on the Raiders 2017 defensive front. To make matters worse for the Eagles, the Bears defense is strong at all 3 levels so they'll really need to win regularly up front to have any kind of success on offense. Akiem Hicks is a stout IDL who is having a strong season in a year where IDL across the league are making big impacts. Eddie Goldman is another DT for the Bears and together with Hicks formed a formidable duo prior to Mack's arrival. Mack and Hicks both have over 50 pressures for Bears defense and force a lot of offenses into making mistakes. Additionally, the entire defensive front is stout against the run as well. This is a complete unit and will need the Eagles OL to rise to the occasion as they have so often of late. Lane Johnson, Brandon Brooks, and Jason Kelce form the best right side of an OL in the NFL and all are having All Pro caliber years. Despite not playing at his usual Hall of Fame level, Jason Peters is still a good left tackle and Wis or Seumalo can hold their own at LG. This is a premier battle that can really help the Eagles win since there are many layers to this Bears defense as it is that will make the Eagles offense earn everything it can get. In their push for the post season, the Eagles defense neutralized the pass rush for the Cowboys, Rams, Texans, and Redskins on two occasions. They'll need it again for this one.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Bears Offensive Line
The Bears enter this contest with one of the best offensive lines in terms of pass blocking efficiency per PFF this season and have veteran Kyle Long making his second consecutive start after returning from injury. Additionally, Matt Nagy runs a creative offense that does a lot to ease the pressure the offensive line can face. Fletcher Cox is having another All Pro caliber season for the Eagles with 95 pressures (per PFF) this season; that number is second only to Aaron Donald in the NFL. That's not just for his position, that is for all pass rushers. Cox is a complete player that will likely draw a lot of attention from the Bears offensive line. They'll need Timmy Jernigan and Haloti Ngata to step up opposite him and make some noise with the 1v1 matchups they'll likely get. Furthermore, Michael Bennett, Chris Long, and Brandon Graham will need to continue with their high level of play of late and take advantages of the matchups they'll get with the extra attention Cox will receive. As with any young QB, Trubisky is far less effective as a passer when he is under pressure and can be prone to throwing an interceptable pass or two. The Eagles defense has been very opportunistic of late forcing a lot of turnovers. The depleted secondary has done their part but it's the defensive line that can really change the game. Trubisky has made a lot of progress since last year but is still mistake prone. This is fine for the Bears as he'll likely improve especially with the quality coaching he has around him. But for now, this Eagles defense can help win this game by forcing him into negative plays. Lastly, controlling the Bears offensive line in the run game will help make the offense one dimensional. Force the Bears offense into unfavorable down and distances and their success rate drops. It'll be important to keep them off schedule and the defensive line will play a big role in that.
Eagles Pass Defense vs Bears Weapons
The Bears have done a great job surrounding Trubisky with plenty of weapons that can attack and win against every defense in a variety of ways. They added the big body receiver in Allen Robinson, the speedster in Taylor Gabriel, the versatile WR Anthony Miller, Trey Burton, and finally Tarik Cohen as a natural matchup nightmare for any defense. All of these guys have a trump card that can help the offense win and all are solid route runners to give Trubisky space to throw the football. Jordan Howard is a solid running back and it'll be important to contain him but Tarik Cohen is the matchup nightmare the Eagles must contain. Cohen will line up everywhere and take a lot of snaps as a wide receiver which gives the Bears the ability put the offense up against favorable defensive alignments. He's explosive with the ball in his hands and is a true competitor. The offense is much more dynamic and explosive when he is on the field. Lately the Eagles defense has done a great job containing opposing RBs but the depth of weapons and the scheme Nagy runs will really test the Eagles back end. Jim Schwartz has done a great job helping this defense finish 12th in points allowed, 1st in red zone defense, and 6th best third down defense despite all of the injuries. They'll need that performance again against an offense that'll stress every blade of grass and take what you give them.
Eagles Pass Offense vs Bears Pass Defense
This is the matchup every fan should be worried about no matter how much you trust the coaches and QB to execute at a high level. The Bears enter this contest with the leagues best pass defense with plenty of high end talent and excellent coaching that have largely shut down their opposition all year. Additionally, the Bears secondary is incredible at forcing turnovers and lead the league by a large margin in interceptions. The Bears added a ton of playmakers on offense to help out Trubisky but have a ton of playmakers on defense to elevate the entire team. Few teams have been as good as the Bears have against the pass this year and 3 of the 4 that did it won the Super Bowl - leave it to the Vikings to choke. If there is a "weakness" to this defense it is outside at CB (Amukamara), LBs in coverage, and Eddie Jacksons injury status (though he'll likely play). Points will be tough to come by as will running. I would expect the coaching staff to try to use the short passing game like they did against the Texans as an extension of the run game to keep the offense on schedule. An additional benefit of this attack is it gives Foles high percentage throws to limit the potential for turnovers. The Eagles need to take this game to the Bears defense but do so smartly. Even if Amukamara is a "weak link" he really isn't a weak link. Even if the Bears don't have elite coverage LBs they have 2 Safeties that are great in coverage. It would be smart for the Eagles to take their shots with Alshon Jeffery as he is their best man coverage receiver. It would be pretty surprising for the Eagles to put up an offensive performance similar to the NFCCG but they do have the talent to be able to at least score some points. They just need to be mindful of all the things Fangio does on the back end to confuse the QB and generate turnovers. The offense needs to stay on schedule to limit low percentage opportunities.

2018.06.13 22:04 Ele20002 [SPOILER Pokémon, Digimon] Review and Comparison of Pokémon and Digimon

Forenote:

As mentioned in the title, this post has spoilers for Pokémon and Digimon. Each section is categorised so if you wish you can skip that part and it shouldn't be spoiled later, but it is possible, especially where is carries on. In addition the comparison at the end SHOULD be spoiler free, but there are parts that could be considered spoilers.
Basically if there's any Pokémon or Digimon TV series (and Digimon Tri) you haven't watched yet, you read at your own risk.
I couldn't think of a better place to put this. Hopefully this is right.

Introduction:

Ok, this is going to be pretty long.
About a year and a half ago, I decided to watch all Pokémon. It took forever, but wasn’t a bad series, so I got through it. A few months ago, I decided to watch Digimon as well. Seeing as they’re similar, and I just finished Digimon, I thought I’d give a bit of a comparison. So, here we go…

Pokémon:

I got my first Pokémon game when I was around 6-8 I think. Platinum. I grew up with those Pokémon, and to see it done on TV later was amazing. It made me sad when they moved to Black and White and made Ash forget literally everything. Anyway, that amazing show I watched then inspired me to watch it again, properly. It was worth it, but I wouldn’t see more than a couple of the seasons again.

Indigo League:

Ok, not a bad start. Everything is new. Ash is not exactly too likeable or perfect, but he gets by. The Gyms are nowhere near the standard they should be, but somehow he gets to the end. The main story is based on his dream of becoming a Pokémon master and uses his friendships with Pokémon to do that. The season is basically classic and sets a standard for most of the others to aim for. He loses the Pokémon league in a ridiculous way but allows the story to continue. Misty and Brock are good as companions, offering good personalities, but no particular development in any of the characters. Team Rocket is introduced and are good villains, but quickly become silly. The episodes that focus on them are good, but they tend to be used too often as a generic villain to cement friendships Ash has made.

Orange Islands:

This season carries on the above, having moved to islands. This is a nice break given the length of the first season and provides a non-Pokémon league season – sorely needed given the long line of Pokémon leagues to come. The replacement to Brock mostly works as the first real responsible adult in the group. Ash is actually able to win this one as a result, and it’s almost like the character arc is coming to an end, finally winning a big challenge. And then…

Johto League:

From here they split the leagues into many seasons. Johto kept the characters from Indigo, but changed the setting. The seasons weren’t too different from Indigo, mostly following the same recipe throughout. Some things like the Whirl Cup happen, but the same thing happens with Ash losing the Conference.

Pokémon Advanced:

At this point they finally made a change to the main cast, as Misty leaves and May and Max arrive. Really Max does practically nothing, so I’ll mostly ignore him. The way they were introduced was cool, having the first gym so closely related to them, but again, it happens so often it gets tiring. The Pokémon contests worked amazingly well, making me care about somebody other than Ash in something as fun as a battle. The Team Magma and Aqua were quite weak with no real sense of place in the series, and just there slotted in. It was an improvement on the others, but still not perfect.

Battle Frontier:

This one I really did like. Ash had a sense of experience and faced actual challenging foes that didn’t need to lower his ability to make difficult (If anything they had to make him better than before shown). It gave Gary a cool backstory and an epic battle Ash actually wins. They even offered a position as Frontier Brain, which basically means he’s amazing. That’d be a good end to Ash’s story and letting him be replaced by someone new. But…

Diamond and Pearl:

I’ll be honest, having this been my series I watched as a child, it may have had an impact. I liked this one quite a bit. Cool Pokémon, refined Pokémon contests, a not terrible new rival and a decent team – Brock and Dawn are both pretty good. Team Galactic, while far from perfect, had a decent storyline throughout. The summer academy was a nice side story and the Pokémon Hunter makes for another good villain, coming together later with Team Galactic. And of course both Ash and Dawn lose because they always do, though the tournaments are still very good. I’d probably be happy to watch this one again.

Black and White:

This one is a bit of a mix. Of course there’s Trip as a new rival, similar mostly to the other two, but a bit more reserved about interaction. Despite being offered a position as a frontier brain and getting to the semi-finals in Diamond and Pearl, he suddenly loses all knowledge up to that point and has to learn everything again. The result is many episodes of Ash doing ridiculous stuff that that in the first season – e.g. Not knowing how a Pokéball works. This immediately makes me dislike the season.
On the other hand, Team Rocket was done in exactly the opposite way. They instantly gained ability and experience, and while before they were just silly, I liked how close the characters I’d grown to know got to their goal – not of stealing Pikachu, but stealing any and all Pokémon. The subway episode arc was one of my favourites of all time. That is exactly what I like to see from Team Rocket, which is why Team Rocket VS Team Plasma would be so amazing.
Iris wasn’t too bad as a side character, and Cilan could be good and useless – in many ways replacing Brock. Team Plasma gave a slightly enjoyable watch, but not too much. And of course Ash loses again, this time coming 8th.

XYZ:

Now this one is close to the opposite of the last, and is currently my favourite Pokémon series of all time, making an amazing comeback. Ash is now much more mature and sensible compared to how he was shown in other seasons – as if he’s finally started to get older. Serena and Clement are the best companions yet, with me constantly interested in Clements inventions and the Pokémon Showcases were, while not as good as contests, worked very well. The summer camp was done well just like the Sinnoh one. Ash’s Pokémon were much better as well, clearly having certain backstories and personalities. And for once Ash actually gets powerful Pokémon like Goodra and Greninja. During the whole season, there has also been other episodes about a separate character, fighting to make his Mega Charizard the most powerful Pokémon. Now while all the battles of this season are 3 times as good as usual, the special one is Greninja. I could feel the excitement every time Ash and Greninja combined, in my opinion being some of the best parts in both Pokémon and Digimon combined. Again Ash fights and loses, but at least in second, and with Alain winning it’s not so bad given the extent of his backstory. Of course what’s special about this season is it actually gets BETTER after the conference, when Team Flare attack. I don’t think of Team Flare as amazing in general, but Lysander was much better as a great villain. With the time for Squishy to be explained, the build to and the final fights near the end cement this as my favourite Pokémon of all time.

Sun and Moon:

Only watched that released in English so far. So far it’s Ok, but far from perfect. Of course Ash loses all the great development built up in XYZ. By not moving around there’s a very different dynamic. There’s more room to develop the many more characters, but that’s not done in much depth at all. Z-Moves make something to aim for, but Ash doesn’t seem to have a goal aiming for other than to win challenges occasionally. The new Pokédex could be interesting, but never quite manages it. It’s always predictable, wrong with anything but hard fact and usually gets in the way. As such the whole detective dynamic could work quite well, but it’s always abandoned for the punchline of him getting it wrong. Unlike others it’s very relaxed and doesn’t really feel too different to a normal story of somebody’s life – it just happens to have Pokémon.
The second season of it is an improvement with some actual storyline, but still seems to lack something from it. Team Rocket have changed in one of the few ways I could never agree with, no longer blasting off properly. This makes it ridiculous when the one time they beat Ash fairly, they can’t take Pikachu. This is frustrating as they, just like other seasons, are rarely given the chance to be proper villains. Overall it’s not bad, but not anything special either.

Overall:

Pokémon very rigidly follows a fixed dynamic. Ash goes off, battles some gyms with a male adult type companion who is from the first Gym he finds, as well as a Female companion who similarly joins in a separate tournament or contest throughout. They both lose said contest, fight an evil organization and along the way Team Rocket commits silliness every few episodes. During the journey Ash grows up, learns more about battling and learns the lesson of friendship, before forgetting it all to do the next season. This dynamic occasionally changes, but never by that much.
As such, none of the main characters actually get to develop that much, so you don’t care much about the people themselves. The Pokémon cannot talk, meaning whatever storyline they follow is limited, and are often self-contained in that episode, meaning few consequences of… basically anything.
However, the one place Pokémon really shines is battles. Seeing as that’s what it’s about it makes sense. The battles are the only sense of character development you feel, and get a sense of satisfaction at watching the opponents surprise when they use tactics to counter the opponent’s attacks. As the trainer calls the attacks and looks after so many Pokémon, you get the sense that they are important, and without the bond of trainer and Pokémon, either would be much weaker. This can be particularly thrilling when the battles are between 2 powerful Pokémon (Like the last battle of the XYZ Pokémon Tournament), and both trainers use attacks and strategy wisely to try and outmanuver the other. If it was just calling attacks, it wouldn’t be that special, but the thought and strategy behind each attack makes it as if you were the trainer, trying to think of the move and the way to use it that would save you. A battle is bad when you know what to do but the trainer does nothing. The battle is good when they do something that you really didn’t expect. Contest battles aren’t quite as thrilling, but similarly exciting in its own way, making them a good complement to Ash’s objective.
Overall this series is good to watch for fun. Most seasons have little to no depth, but the best battles can leave you shivering with excitement. Ash is fairly basic as a character and never develops beyond each seasonal arc, meaning you can’t follow his adventures as realistic. Whether you enjoy it depends almost completely on what you expect.

Digimon:

My only experience with Digimon that led me to watch it was a few episodes of Data Squad. I didn’t know anyone in it, but watching the lion like king die, and then later Karata rip open the sky was astounding. I decided to watch it, and while slightly disappointed Data Squad was exactly what I hyped it to be in my mind, it was still very good.

Digimon Adventures:

I must say, I struggled to get through the first 10 or so episodes. It was all the same. People I don’t know have partners given to them for no reason. They wander for ages through a strange world with nothing too interesting. Eventually they come across an evil Digimon. After 2 minutes of one of them digivolving for the first time in a poorly done animation, they defeat it, the black gear vanishes, and everyone wins. Slowly I began to know the characters better and like it more. Tai was the leader, but a big fight with Matt told me he was far from perfect. He wasn’t Ash who never made a mistake, and that made him so much better. I slowly got to know everyone a bit better as time went by. Then they were all split up.
For the first time, all of them actually get to voice their personalities without the rest to dampen it. Izzy quickly became one my favourite character, constantly trying to understand the world around him, and the first in the two series I could begin to relate to. You see Matt’s true colours for the first time separated from TK, and how much he cares for him. TK on the other hand shows himself to be very mature for his age, able to function extraordinarily well in the circumstances. You also start to see development in the characters, slowly overcoming their problems. When they get back together Patamon digivolves last into Pigmon Angemon, and defeats their first boss. In this arc we’ve already seen loads of development and a real loss, despite leaving lots to be desired in terms of quality.
Then the crests happened. This worked well, only amplifying their development, and clearly defining them as separate characters. As a villain, Etemon was not bad, providing a threat for the others to rise against. Skullgreymon and Izzy’s revelation really changed Tai a lot, realising his confidence could be his downfall. There is a brief spell in the real world which makes me want to see the Digidestined really get home. As soon as I saw Kari I had a feeling she would get a digivice. After Tai returns is when it really gets good. Each of them needs to work together with their partner to overcome an obstacle DemiDevimon has created. This creates an amazing dynamic where each one of them gains something about themselves they didn’t have before, only making them more certain of who they are. Sora really shone here as the guardian angel saving each of them from a tough spot.
Then they go to the real world to try and find the 8th Digidestined. This gets a little long, but otherwise is one of my favourite parts of the season. For the first time, they’re back home, and have something the Adults couldn’t even imagine. But after getting thorough all the proceedings, they STILL decide to go back. And this time it’s a decision. Maybe it wasn’t much of a choice, but it gave you that feeling they would have even if it didn’t directly affect theirs. The other part of the arc was Gatomon. I thought that was done really well, and Gatomon swapping sides halfway through as well as the relationship with Wizardmon was amazing. It was just a shame she didn’t act any different to the other Digimon when they later left.
Now while I didn’t find the Dark Masters quite as good as the Myotismon arc, they were still quite good. Each of them really made some more good development in that, ending finally with TK allowing Angemon to digivolve. By the end I really cared about all of them, and Apocalymon tidied up the story nicely. It was really sad to see them leave, as I prepared for the next season.

Digimon Adventures 2:

Not bad, but not quite as good as the first. 4 new characters, + TK and Kari grown up. Davis became a bit too much like Tai, setting the standard for a whole line of characters just like him in every season. Yolei and Cody were, not bad, but didn’t really do much. They could be replaced with a completely different character and I’m not sure I’d notice the difference. On the other hand, Ken I thought was very well done. A fairly challenging villain, and of course the redemption after made for an interesting character.
One thing I didn’t like though was the new evolution. Sure, they needed some way to get rid of the kids without D3’s, but Armor digivolving seemed a little silly to me.
While the characters had much less development, it was supplemented by a much better story than that of the original. It was far from perfect, but an improvement. I found my main problem with it was the chain of villains. Villain 1: Ken – turned out to be controlled by a woman. Villain 2: The woman – turned out to be controlled by Oikawa. Villain 3: Oikawa – turned out to be controlled by Myotismon. I liked Ken and Oikawa as they had well done backstories, but still none of them were perfect. As a result of basically everything I wrote for the first season, I savoured every moment with the original crew.
Overall, while it was pretty good, it was far from how good the original one because it didn’t make me care about the characters.

Tamers:

From here they started making completely different universes. This one was particularly different, relying on cards to allow the Digimon to become more powerful. This was a good dynamic as it made the tamers much more useful than simply being there. It was hard at first to get used to this completely different series being called Digimon. However despite this, they sort of become useless near the end for anything other than digivolving, when it could have been a useful plot point.
Takato was quite good, being slightly less outgoing at the start, meaning he actually developed to reach the role of leader. Also the fact he created his Digimon was really cool, and I wish it was explored in more detail. Henry I also liked a lot, with the conflicting philosophy of not fighting whenever possible. This made him seem like a very reasonable and realistic character, one such that I’ve seen many ‘Henry’s’ in real life. Rika was quite well done as the essential opposite to Henry, making it fun to watch them interact, even if she sometimes made bad choices.
Unlike the others, this also had fairly important side characters – Jeri was very good and provided a surprise with Leomon that might be the darkest part of all Digimon. I expected him to come back right until the end. Then he didn’t. (This was all before I know a good Leomon got sacrificed every series). I didn’t like Kazu – it seemed like he was a little too controlling, but might just be me. As such Kenta just felt like a yes man for Kazu. Impmon on the other hand. I really didn’t like him at first, but then when we saw the fight of the 2 siblings and Impmon trying to take on a Deva alone, I started to like him more. He was really well done, and I loved seeing Beelzemon on both sides.
Finally the D-Reaper – I didn’t actually like too much. It seemed too much like a faceless omnipotence for me to really care much and just wanted it to disappear, which may have been the point.
Overall it was done very well. Not quite as good as the first in my opinion, but still very good. Compared to the others, this is the only one without any form of Digimon Rebirth. This means for the first time, Digimon are at risk, and made Leomons death the more powerful as he won’t come back.

Frontier:

Frontier had a slightly different dynamic to the others, having the people Digivolve instead of their Digimon partners (of which they had none). This made it feel slightly empty without the bond, but mostly still worked. For the start a lot of the episodes were filler, but eventually got around to the main goal of defeating the spirits.
Takuya was basically the next in the line of Tai’s, but they did quite well with his development with the dark trailmon. He changed a lot in that. Koji was also done pretty well, and created the dynamic storyline between Koji and Koichi that worked. His conflict with Takuya meant you learn a lot about them both along the way. JP went out of his way to be dislikeable in the start, but quickly become better. The idea of him trying too hard to get friends is one very understandable and relatable, making him occasionally very good. Zoey had a story that made sense, but honestly felt a little like it was somebody else’s story. Though as a character she often was the one who pulled the dialog together to make it feel like the group was really interacting. Tommy was also done quite well, but maybe I haven’t experienced enough of his story myself to really like him. Good development though. Finally, Neemon I’ll just say I didn’t like. He literally added nothing helpful whatsoever.
I can understand what they were trying to do, recreating the first season by focusing on character development, but they focused slightly too much on events than personalities, and while well done, doesn’t quite capture the original magic. After the main Cherubimon arc was over, it started to go downhill with the Royal Knights. It was tiring to get through every episode, just going there, fighting and losing every time. When all the 10 legendary warriors appeared, I thought maybe they would finally do something exciting (I really liked the evil ones), but they quickly left and never reappeared.
It was far from a bad season, but lacked the qualities to bring it out of mediocre.

Data Squad:

Finally I reached the one I watched all that time ago. It was really very well done. Marcus, while a Tai descendant, was much more interesting seeing as he let emotions completely control him, always fighting HIMSELF (which is loads of fun to watch) as well as Agumon. Their partnership as a result is amazing.
The big difference in this one is that everyone’s a lot older and working full time for an actual organization. This means everyone acts very differently, but despite that I think it works very well.
Thomas was done really well, being the reason, logic, strategy and basically master of everything, but not having the same spark and courage to go for it as Marcus. As a team they worked really well together and I loved that whole dynamic, as well as Thomas betraying them later.
Yoshi was not quite as good as the others I thought. She made a lot of sense, but didn’t change too much and really had nobody to bounce personality against. Her Digimon was never as strong as Thomas or Marcus’, so almost seemed like she was just there.
Keenan was very good, having a different personality and a gripping backstory, also setting the stage for the rest.
Honestly, this one is my second best. The characters are not as good as Digimon Adventure, but still very well done. The story is the best, in my opinion, out of all of the other Digimon. It had a solid start, establishing the Data Squad and characters, and really didn’t feel at all like filler. You quickly see why the Digimon hate humans so much, and that makes that whole system a lot more interesting. What’s amazing is when Karata turns up – an amazing villain. He takes lots of traits like cowardice and quickly makes them worse, sinking deep into a pit of his own power. The machines he makes are amazing, switching the normally safe situation of a Digimon to a Digiegg, into one where Digimon can actually die. Watching Merukimon die followed by the every plan he creates – only added to by his personality makes it amazing to watch, and a simple source of anger. His end was done very well, with his final plan backfiring. After that though, I liked it less. The Royal Knights were quite good, and I particularly liked Craniamon. Drasil was interesting, but a little boring, and not quite as good as Karata. On the other hand he acted as a good opponent to see Marcus really shine, along with BanchoLeomon.
Overall it was done incredibly well, producing a series I’d be happy to watch again.

Fusion:

The last series, fusion was very different. Instead of a Digimon partner, there were many Digimon that helped out Mikey. This also fit in with a different feel, being a war show rather than an exploration show.
While Mikey was the new main character (Tai), he seems almost too powerful. From the start he has both the emotion Marcus had and the strategy of Thomas, along with the caring of Yoshi. This means you can follow his story easily and lets him be really likable (very much like Ash as I think about it…), but as a consequence he experiences practically no development or change. It also means that Angie and Jeremy are practically useless. There was one episode Angie claimed Mikey didn’t need her. He kept repeating he did, but never gave a reason why. It made me think and realise they literally do nothing. Their only purpose is so Mikey isn’t alone in the Digital World.
On the other hand, this is the first time I can talk properly about the Digimon personalities, which are only really prominent for the first time here: Shoutmon was well done. He was essentially the fire that did whatever it took, but often didn’t think about what he was doing. Cutemon and Dorulumon) came and provided very different roles – Dorulumon being the cool one who used to be evil, and Cutemon being the innocent one looking for parents. All of them, and the other Digimon had their story explained which made them particularly special.
However, I wasn’t too excited by the fusion. Before the Digidestined used their bond with a Digimon to help them evolve. Having them simply fuse was less exhilarating as only really Shoutmon is heard afterwards, and the other personalities are dimmed out.
Nene was done very well, and quickly made me like Sparrowmon, and Christopher was even better, having a revelation near the end. The slowness they joined together made it feel as though it really happened naturally and wasn’t forced, and it was always good to watch Christopher try and be the best.
Ewan was superb and I loved watching him think up ways to stop them. The whole castle part was great as you see Ewan start to wonder if it really is real. The Generals are all amazing, making the process of figuring out a strategy for each one fun. The Water Tiger was by far my favourite, watching his ingenious plans fail to Mikey.
Overall, while different, I did like it a lot. But the main problem is it didn’t really have a Digimon feel to it. Still, it was good as it was and I’d consider watching again.

Digimon Tri:

Tri was a set of movies set in the original Adventure universe. I thought for a sequel it was well done. Not quite as good as the original, but still capturing the essence by telling a story of the characters.
Tai has immediately changed, now much more aware of consequences. Each of the characters finds a flaw and it’s exposed and focused on. Matt becomes more of a leader, and challenges every decision. Sora realises she needs to look out for herself as well. Izzy is confronted with failure and inability for his knowledge and ability to solve a critical problem. Mimi realises other people have different ideas. Joe is confronted with a choice between his life and Digimon (That was my favourite out of all of them. I really understood that scene.) TK was faced with a lack of hope as Patamon became infected (My second favourite scene) Kari… I’m not exactly sure what happened with her.
The key again though is all of these are different people with their own unique personalities. The story is flawed and has plot holes missing the 02 kids, but it really remains true to what Digimon was about – who the kids are and how they change. For me, seeing them grow up made it one of my favourite pieces.

Overall:

Digimon is made up of loads of separate series. While the first I like the most, the others also have distinct merits. Digimon is mostly about the characters and the story, focusing a lot on one or the other. This leads to really realistic and likable characters such as in Digimon Adventures and Digimon Tamers, while others had an amazing story that flows really well, such as Data Squad and Digimon Fusion. As a result the action is stepped back such that while the battles can be exciting, they’re just a tool to develop characters or progress the story.
All of them tend to be similar but different, usually having a main Tai character and often a secondary cool Matt character along with others. They all have partners and learn to digivolve over time in ridiculously long digivolution sequences. They encounter at least 2 main foes and after defeating them both go home. Leomon dies. This formula changes a lot as you can see by comparing to any of the seasons, but it does act as a baseline.
Overall, I really do like Digimon. They’ve made many mistakes and I wouldn’t see every season again, but by focusing on the characters and story, they create a very solid show.

Comparison:

Now I’ve reviewed both of them, I thought I’d add a comparison.

Characters:

Typically Pokémon has 3 characters: 1 Ash, 1 Adult responsible figure and 1 Girl on an alternate quest. Ash has a very basic character, applicable to being ‘the’ good person. As a result of this and the episodic structure, there is no character development really. The characters are mostly there to interact with the world, though occasionally offer an interesting tangent.
Digimon always has a main ‘Tai’ character with the emotion and leadership to carry the team. Each member of the team tends to be well ground in a backstory and personality that is relatable, and makes their adventures compelling to watch.
In comparison, Digimon has much better characters, focusing the whole show on them rather than Pokémon that uses them only really to tell a story.

Story:

Pokémon usually has 1 tournament, 1 contest and 1 evil organization, supplemented by the stories that take place over 1 episode. These are fairly repetitive, relying usually on action to make it exciting. Occasionally there is a well thought out story, often with Team Rocket, but it is usually short and insignificant to the show.
Digimon tends to have a mixed story, sometimes having a good story, but usually sacrificing story for the sake of the characters. This means while each episode is nothing special, together the adventure of the people is more important.
Neither has a perfect story. Pokémon relies on episodic story while Digimon provides a better overarching story to show off their characters.

Partners:

Pokémon has each character with multiple non-speaking partners, who usually become partners as a result of friendship after a certain event. They generally have one main Pokémon they focus on and never go without. They also have many other Pokémon they balance. You mainly get a feel for their relationship when they battle together.
Digimon usually has only one partner per character. These partners DO speak. You get an idea of the bond between them when they digivolve, and the partners often reflect their humans personality.
Fusion is the exception, and has multiple partners, along with a main one – a bit like Pokémon. These Digimon also act more independently than partners tend to.
Overall, Pokémon focuses a lot on the Pokémon-trainer relationship, expressing it in battles. Digimon on the other hand is able to broaden this relationship in speech, but while expressed in digivolving, is done less than in Pokémon.

Battle:

Pokémon is basically built around battling. Many episodes involve Ash facing a battle, and using all his thought and connection with Pokémon to get through it. It can be amazing to see what Ash manages to pull off – especially when he uses Greninja. The battles are really what you watch Pokémon to see.
Digimon on the other hand only uses them as a plot point. All battles are essentially either:
1) Impossible, and completely outmatched, OR
2) Easy, and doesn’t take long to defeat with ease.
This means the battles are very simple and the only way to really change your chance of winning is adding more Digimon, or digivolving. This begins to change over time, with some strategy in Data Squad and Mikey often directing tactical moves like in Pokémon in Fusion.
In this one, Pokémon is easily in its element, while Digimon doesn’t see the battle itself as the main point.

Wrap-Up:

Really, while both about some kind of monster that fights, they are very different shows. Pokémon shows a lot of friendship and focuses on battles and getting stronger. In contrast Digimon only uses this to tell a story, and above all, expose the characters to a hostile environment to see them adapt. If the first Digimon characters were put in another situation with no Digimon whatsoever, I have a feeling it could still work well. Nevertheless, the Digimon complement the partners well to tell a compelling story. Digimon also explores some darker themes than Pokémon, going into death, war and real human emotions. As a child, Pokémon is loads of fun to watch. As an adult, Digimon is so much deeper and I’ll always love the original Digidestined.
