Synopsis:

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.

Both of these children's anime are pretty similar. Both have a normal boy and girl, a scientist father, cute creatures, and a trio of fail-villains. The main teams travel around strange worlds collecting things.  If you enjoyed one, the other is something you'll enjoy as well.

Flint and Mon Colle Knights both have kid heroes traveling around while opposing a trio of ne'er do wells.

Dinosaur King

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!

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.

Sou Nanda

Sou Nanda

Sou Nanda and Flint are filled with scientific travel and wacky monsters - not to mention they are aimed at young boys. Sou Nanda is far more educational, while Flint is definitely in the vein of Pokemon or Digimon; still, fans of one would probably appreciate the other.
