My thoughts exactly. Pokemon and Digimon have always been similar concepts but have been different enough that those who say either is copying the other look like idiots.
This mega-evolution thing is a straight rip off from Digimon though.
I mean, they go back to normal afterwards, that is exactly who digivolution worked. They must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel to try and come up with new pokemon ideas.

You misunderstand me. I'm not saying that a temporary change or power-up is a rip-off from any one thing.
The term "mega-evolution" and calling the evolution that is taken from digimon. There were all kinds of digivolutions in the digimon universe. Warp and hyper to name a few.
The second stage digivolution was called mega-digivolution though. I can't remember if it was in the first series or in one of the others, but it was definitely a stage of evolution that the digimon went through.

Well how I see it is: You have 2 stages of evolution most of the time and when your pokemon reached the capacity you can temporarily give it a power boost making it ascend even above that level, the term mega-evolutions is just a bad pick. Also for the scraping the bottom of the barrel thing, I don't agree the pokémon franchise is a moneymaker they release the same game every year with new creatures and it's making loads of money, introducing something new is a high risk move and they won't do it if they don't have trust in the idea, but that's just my opinion.

Design wise they are scraping the bottom of the barrel. While loads of new pokemon are being made every couple years a good portion of them are just evolutions of earlier gen pokemon (just look at gen 4) newer pokemon are also becoming less creative as time goes on, they added a new type to bring in more ideas but they made an ice cream cone last generation, A FREAKING ICE CREAM CONE.
Pokemon has really just lost its luster for me. The show has completely derailed from what it was for the first few seasons, the games are the same thing over and over just with new setting and characters, and don't get me started on the card game.
Now I'm not fanboying for digimon either, I haven't watched it since the third series and I did watch both shows, but I feel like this mega-evolution thing is too similar to digimon, plus it doesn't really feel right, pokemon are meant to grow stronger and then retain that strength while digimon were computer programs, the digivolution was really just an add-on feature that could be turned off and on so as not to use the program's processing power.

I enjoy digimon for many reasons. The show seasons never reuse the same set of characters as the main characters. It's focus on new ways to introduce older and new types of digimon is still amazing. The show always try's reinvent itself with every season. I will however say while I do love digimon I still like Pokemon. I just love the digimon games more, though I just want more games like the first digimon world instead of some of the others. These are just my thoughts and I mean nothing negative towards Pokemon, I just like digimon more.

Yeah I know. Digimon just kind of is the name that pops up with temporary forms.
I don't actually watch the current digimon. I stopped when series four came out as I hated the fact that they took away the partners for the digidestined. I did see a few episodes from what I think was series 5 (the one with Agumon again, only a different person) and I was happy that it was back to the partner system.
I just never really picked it up from there.
I frankly like both series, I grew up with them both and I still like them both, I've just pulled away from the shows now as its not nearly as good as it once was. Ash has lost his original goal and the show is repeat after repeat nowadays. I have thought about reading the manga I just haven't started to yet. I can't say much for where digimon is nowadays as I haven't tried to watch it.
TL;DR- While series before digimon have had temporary evolutions to bolster the character's power, calling the evolutions "mega-evolutions" seems like its too close for comfort with pokemon and digimon.

The games industry is a money thing now. It's quantity over quality.
The last game I played where I felt legitimately engaged and ended up losing hours in the game was Far Cry 3, even before that, I don't remember the last game I played that done that.
95% of Mainstream popular games now are FPS' or Third Person Shooters with the occasional indie game.
I just wish games were a bit more original, imaginative and filled with quality.
That being said, Ubisoft are one of the few companies who can deliver it (minus the AC series).

Ya and the only real games that I've found enjoyable have been indie. Such FTL, don't starve, to name a few. In a lot of ways it pisses me off but then again video games had this problem a while back and it almost destroyed the entire industry but the good thing that came from that was Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft growing big while the others failed. So maybe with this new era of video games will die and a new one will be born, one where the player is meant to have fun, think, and become engaged into the story. Until that does happen I'm going into my golden era time vault and I'm not coming out for any of this new shit thats just awful.
