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!

Nina was just a normal twelve-year-old girl - until she ate a strange candy-like jewel that fell out of the sky into her sundae. The jewel, it seems, is known as the Crystal Pearl, and it is sought after by hordes of magic users who aspire to become professional magicians. Whoever is in the possession of the Pearl on Christmas will pass the test; leaving Nina as the most sought after item of the magic world. Luckily for her, two handsome magicians, Ichii and Zero, have pledged to keep her safe until the contest has ended. Can Nina keep her sanity with not only dozens of magicians out to capture her, but also the invasion of these two hunks into every aspect of her life?
Both Pokemon and Save Me! Lollipop follow a team or two guys and a girl as they struggle against fairly incompetent villains. To be sure, the basic premise and method of battle differs quite a bit, but the two shows balance humor and mischief with fighting to achieve their goals nicely. In addition, Team Rocket and the sorcerer team of San and Forte share the same method of departure from battle. ;) If you laughed at the humor in one show, you'll probably enjoy the humor in the other.
Many insects call the underbrush and flowerbeds of the garden their home; one such insect is Maya, a curious and friendly honeybee who enjoys a good adventure and a playful time with others. Along with her friends Willy the Bee and Phillip the grasshopper, Maya meets a variety of characters including a lonely cricket, lofty cockroach, and steadfast army ants! Whether it's hiding from the sun or avoiding mean wasps, there's always a good time to be had in the world of the small!
Both series tell a story of animals (if pokemon could be called like this...). They are also quite simmilar in the plot: both are about maturation and exceeding one's limits in order to be better.
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!!
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!
Unlike a show like Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh GX and Pokemon are more similar because the main characters chose to be where they are, and are working towards a goal, not to save the world, but just become the best at what they do. They train hard, and constantly battle others (battles/matches happen almost every episode). However, Pokemon has less of a storyline than Yu-Gi-Oh GX.
