Synopsis:

Max, Zoey and Rex are three kids who make up the D-Team - a team which is all about adventure! While investigating a fallen meteorite, the trio run across some mysterious dinosaur cards which, when activated, spit out a real life dinosaur! These cards were accidentally scattered around the world in a time traveling accident caused by the nefarious Dr. Z and his henchmen known as the Alpha Gang. Dr. Z aspires to create a dinosaur fighting arena and become the Dinosaur King himself, and he needs the cards - and dinosaurs within them - to accomplish his goal! Now, the D-Team must race against the clock to find the cards first and free the dinosaurs from the ultimate villains!

Dinosaur King is pretty much a blatant ripoff of Pokemon and is inferior in every way (including absolutely terrible CG animation); nevertheless, it's easy to see why fans of one might like the other. Each involves a group of kids who have to collect items and engage in battles against evil, with cute characters (pokemon or dinosaurs) as part of the mix. In addition, the dub voice actors are IDENTICAL for the main good/bad characters in both Pokemon and Dinosaur King.

So if you liked DK, check out the superior Pokemon; if you liked Pokemon, you can check out DK -- just keep in mind it pretty much sucks.

since dinosaur king a is a copy of pokemon it is safe to say that if you like you may well like the othe.

Both invloe children teaming up with monsters to over come the problems that they face.

Madgirllolly

first of, both have the same, 'collect them all and become a master' type feel to them, secondly, if you love silly villans who never seem to get things right, they both have these, and plus, what better than both animes having the same voices,

Max-AshUrsula-Jessie

that little girl from the Alpha team-Misty

Like sothis said, Dinosaur King is basically a rip off a Pokemon. It even goes so far as to use the same voice actors as Pokemon including Ash's/Delia's voice actor, who also plays the main character in Dinosaur King and the main character's mom (exactly like Pokemon), and Jessie's voice actor who plays a similar character to Jessie in this one. In Dinosaur King, the people aim to become the 'Dinosaur King' while in Pokemon, the people aim to become Pokemon Masters. Really, if you like one, you will probably like the other. Pokemon may be more for people who like cute creatures in general, but Dinosaur King is better for those who want more realistic creatures and have a liking for the dinos.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX

At the island-based Duel Academy, young potential duelists gain the skills they need to become a top notch duelist. The students are divided into three classes named after the three Egyptian god cards: the top ranked Obelisk Blue, average Ra Yellow, and beginner Slifer Red. Jaden Yuki is currently a student at the academy, and is a huge fan of the famous Yugi Mutou. Though Jaden must start off slowly in the Slifer Red class, his goal is impressive: to become the next King of Games! Together with Syrus, Chumley, and Bastion, their dueling matches will draw them into the shadow realm, and into trouble. Jaden and the gang must do the only thing possible: get their game on!

Both series are about card game and even though one's about dinosaurs and the other about monsters in general, the chosen team must save the world and prevent the cards from ending up in the wrong hands

sothis

Yu Gi Oh GX and Dinosaur King are remarkably similar in format, target audience, and feel. The kids in both battle various monsters using cards that summon them, and both anime are clearly targeted at young boys. Just trust me on this one!

Beyblade V-Force

Beyblade V-Force

After winning the title of World Champion Beyblader, Tyson’s ego couldn’t be more extreme. The other members of the Bladebreakers have moved on to tasks of their own: Max is studying up at a research lab, Ray returned home and is teaching kids how to play the game, and Kai has disappeared. Their thrill of winning soon fades as each member is targeted one by one by hooded opponents who possess blades with invisible bit-beasts within! Unfortunately for the gang, they are also being hunted by a secret evil organization who wants the Bladebreakers’ bit beasts for themselves. Countless battles and fierce opponents await our champions!

Dinosaur King and Beyblade V-Force are shounen anime with a similar mood and feel. Plot-wise as well, they are similar: kids battle each other using the help of an item or monster, gain ranks, and overall battle the forces of evil. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.

Flint, the Time Detective

Flint, the Time Detective

Through a series of events, the cavemen Flint and his father were turned into fossils in prehistoric times - only to be found in the 25th century and brought back to life. Flint becomes part of the Time Bureau, an organization tasked with finding time shifters that have been scattered throughout the ages by the evil Dark Lord. Alongside Tony, Sarah, and his still-partially-fossilized father in the shape of a stone axe, Flint will travel through time and find the time shifters before Petrafina - the Dark Lord's minion - can get to them first! From Christopher Columbus to ancient samurai, Flint and his friends will meet a variety of famous people and have plenty of fun along the way.

While Flint has many similarities to Pokemon, I believe it fits better with Dinosaur King. Each is very cheesy, has various monsters to deal with, and is utterly shounen at heart. Fans of one - if you actually enjoyed it - would be fans of the other.

Legendz: Tale of the Dragon Kings

Legendz: Tale of the Dragon Kings

Shuzo "Shu" Matsutani is young, loves baseball, and carries around a useless white toy called a Talispod - at least, he THOUGHT it was useless. What Shu soon discovers is that Talispods can summon powerful monsters known as Legendz stored inside of Soul Dolls, and the evil Dark Wiz Toy Company wants his Talispod for nefarious purposes. After being chased by Dark Wiz's lackeys, Shu receives the ultimate gift from the skies: a Windragon who will fight by his side. Now, with the help of his friends, Shu will become involved in battles, hold back the Dark Wiz Toy Company, and discover the locations of the remaining Soul Dolls.

Though Dinosaur King and Legendz have slightly different tones (DK is newer-feeling and more in the Pokemon realm, while Legendz is more of a comedy), there is no doubt in my mind that they would appeal to the same audiences. If you are a young boy who likes shounen, random battles with summoned monsters and marginal animation, these are for you.
