Several decades ago, chemical elements began to disappear from the world, decimating the planet and resulting in the loss of 90% of Earth’s population. However, though the elements have vanished, they aren’t out of reach – they have materialized in Nega Earth, an opposing planet filled with strange monsters that morph into dangerous QEX when they absorb five kinds of positive elements. Normally, Element Hunters - children specially trained to retrieve these elements and battle QEX – travel to Nega Earth alone; but when Homi, Ren and Chiara stumble across a strange old castle, they find themselves chartered with tracking down the elements themselves. With little training, can these children help save the world and stay alive along the way?
In a world where creatures known as Pokemon roam and would-be trainers capture and battle the beasts, the young Ash Ketchum can’t be happier; he has finally reached the age when he can have his very first Pokemon! Along with the electrical Pikachu and human buddies Brock and Misty, Ash must embark on a journey to battle countless others and become the best Pokemon Trainer of them all! From the Johto region to the Orange Islands, there’s plenty of Pokemon to catch and adventures to find, even if the infamous Team Rocket stands in the way!
A main character who wants to jump in first, a level-headed quiet guy, and a female who tends to always make sure the main character knows when he is wrong. Not to mention a strange enviroment when compared to us, the viewers. In the end, all I want to shout "gotta catch em all" whether it be a pokemon or an element in the shape of a not-so-pocket-monster! Its got action, comedy, and something a bit childish to them, all I'd recommend.
Both shows are about children that wander around gathering either creatures (pokemon) or elements (Elementhunters). The same mentality is there from pokemon for Elementhunters "gotta catch em all" kind of deal. Elementhunters is a tad more serious because they are gathering in order to save their world from further destruction but if you like either check out the other.
Seven kids are enjoying their summer when suddenly, a digivice appeared before them, and the next thing they know, they are in the "Digiworld." There, they meet creatures known as digimon. There are evil digimon in the Digiworld, but they are not bad in nature; rather, most of them have been turned evil by nefarious forces. Each child had a digimon waiting for them in the Digiworld; and though not all Digimon are strong, the digivice that the seven kids carry has the ability to allow their Digimon partner to evolve into a stronger type. Together, they will going to embark on a journey to save the Digiworld from pure evil and darkness!
Why Digimon and Element Hunters? Firstly, both series are about kids who are used to be normal until they are suddenly chosen to protect chaos further spreading across the world (in Digimon's case, the digital world, that will, if destroyed, trigger a chain reaction and the same thing would happen to the human world as well, in Element Hunters, to protect the world from further disappearance of elements that are vital for surviving). Secondly, it involves fighting big monsters that are, if destroyed, either turned back to an egg (Digimon) and becomes harmless, or the targeted element is released and obtained and the monster, again, becomes harmless. Thirdly, the characters are simmilar, although rather fewer in EH's case. While EH maybe tends to be a little more mature and serious than Digimon, I think it is regardless a good match, with the same "never give up" feel to it, good music, interesting characters and simmilar humor!
