All young Ikki wants is to have his very own Medabot, but his parents insist that he purchase the machine with his own hard-earned money. Though he can't afford a top-of-the-line model, Ikki finds, by chance, a special medal in the river; with it, any Medabot will come to life and accept the commands of its owner. After a fellow classmate is bullied at school, Ikki rushes to buy an inferior model of Medabot and places his medal inside of it. While his new companion - which he dubs Metabee - is functional, there's one important problem: Metabee has a serious attitude problem and refuses to acknowledge Ikki's commands. Together, Ikki and Metabee will duel opponents such as the Rubberobo gang and local bullies while they prepare for an upcoming Robattle Tournament - but their worst opponents are each other! Will Ikki and Metabee stop arguing long enough to climb to the top?

In a strange way, medabots and pokemon share many similar qualities. First off, both have a main star with black hair, Ash in pokemon and Ikki in medabots. Both animes feature "fighting pets" pokemon and medabots. Ash has a favourite, pikachu and Ikki has metabee. Both Metabee and pikachu share similar personalities. They dont always listen to their masters but will fight to the death for they. In both animes the lead characters are striving to be world champions in there respective fields. I personally prefer Medabots but i enjoyed the original Pokemon very much!!

Yu-Gi-Oh GX and Medabots are extremely similar, except in a few regards. Medabots deals with fighting robots while YGO's battles are between summoned monsters, but the aesthetics and actions in both anime are identical. Various stats are shown for each participant and a human controls the whims of the beast/machine, and both anime are clearly aimed at the same audience: young boys. If you liked one, I can't see why you wouldn't like the other.
