Both invloe people teaming up with monsters to over come the problems that they face so that they are able to reach their goals.
Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh both ahve a lot a like, for instance i got into both of them because of the card game that i played and collected, then there was an anime to follow!
If you like the anime which is based around battle tournaments and gaming, I reccomend this anime highly.
Both protaganists care for their friends highly but also want to reach the top of their game.
Both are rather light hearted but have a darker theme in them as well. (Even though this darker theme isn't really dark, it just is in comparison to the rest of the show. )
If you enjoyed one then you will enjoy the other.
Just like Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon is a gaming anime. Both shows have alot in common, and for many, when peopel thing Yu-Gi-Oh, they'll also thing Pokemon. Or the other way round. Both have brave, determined characters and cute but intriguing monsters. If you are a girl, you'll probs like Pokemon more then Yu-Gi-Oh, due to it being created for both sexes, while Yu-Gi-Oh was more aimed at boys
Both these series are based of collecting trading and battling. Both main characters are battling there way to achieve there goals.
Beyblading is the latest rage; gyroscopes battle each other in different environments until one is knocked out. Only a true master can bring out a blade’s full potential and unleash the bitbeast within, though. To find out who the true blade master is, a tournament is held. While going up against a team of bio-enhanced beybladers, can the talented but hard-headed Tyson and his team, the Bladebreakers, master their bitbeasts and bring home the win?
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!
Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?
You would like this anime is you liked the idea of monsters in cards.
Although it is rather obvious that CCS is more for girls and Yu-Gi-Oh! more for boys they are both still a good watch. Yu-Gi-Oh has more competitiveness in it than CCS as it is based on a game and Cardcaptor Sakura isn't so much. Despite this though they both have just enough fighting in them for the people who can't watch an anime without it.
Even though they have so many major differences, i still reccommend that you try the anime.
Twelve-year-old Shobu Kirifuda has one goal: to become a top-ranking player at the game of Duel Masters, a card game in which players use spells and summon monsters to break through their opponents' shield cards and subsequently defeat them. Shobu believes he's a great player, but he soon discovers that there is more to the game than he originally thought; true Duel Masters, he learns, are able to make the monsters on the cards manifest themselves during a duel. A mysterious group has taken a keen interest in Shobu, although their reasons are as mysterious as the group itself. Now Shobu and his friends not only have to win the championship, but also try to figure out who these people are and why they're so interested in Shobu.
