edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Digimon:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Copyedit: Entire article
  • Expand: History, Video games
  • Infobox: Add one.
  • Photo: A screenshot of the anime, etc. would be nice as the article isn't much to look at in its current state.
  • Stubs: Several sections consist of only a "main article" link.
  • Verify: Most of the prose

One of the toughest articles to clean up[edit]

Problem with this article is that in order to improve it to B-class or higher, we need to do more than just reorganize, we need to improve the other articles.

The thing is the metaseries is divided into series, and none of them are adequate. It'll take a lot of time, but we need to fix each individual series, compile all the media together that is directly related, and keep whats not into specific series currently listed into its respected media section.

@Lucia Black: Improving other articles wouldn't be necessary to improve this one class-wise, but would definitely be helpful for readers. I'd be interested in working with you (and anyone else available) to get this article to GA-class, but that would require a number of reliable sources about the anime that I think would be very difficult to dig up, as well as completion of the cleanup issues you've raised.

It'll get us more organized. the article covers too much on the metaseries based on individual series and it will be difficult to do so if we concentrate on the main page alone. if we improve the other articles, we can summarize the sections better. remember the core aspect of the series is the individual tv series.

True. Incidentally, I may not be much help there, as I've only seen about the first 14 episodes of the original Digimon Adventure. I haven't checked up on the Digimon task force in ages; are there other currently active users who could help? Tezero (talk) 21:30, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
We really dont need to explain the plot. although it would be good. we should be looking for media, development, and reception so that we can summarize the main article. plot info is easy to summarize. especially how simple the plots have been. Lucia Black (talk) 15:51, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm really not experienced with finding notable anime reviews, although I know the Anime News Network hosts a good deal of them. Development will be even more difficult, if there is any; it took me a good while just to find enough for the article's current "Conception and creation" section. That being said, we don't have to reference what genuinely isn't there. Tezero (talk) 16:59, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
The least we can do is give a brief summary of the plot and the broadcasting of Japan and English. Otherwise, we're going to be removing alot of info. Lucia Black (talk) 05:01, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
That works. That would be much easier to cite, too. Tezero (talk) 16:39, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

This specific article will take some time. so i'll be looking into the toy-line considering its technically the original media. see what i can find. Lucia Black (talk) 18:02, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Digimon vs. Pokemon[edit]

Does anybody know the year that Digimon was created? I'm trying to find which was first, Digimon or Pokemon, and the article on Pokemon says that it was created for a Japanese video game in 1996. 74.67.173.198 (talk) 02:27, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Never mind, it was 1997. 74.67.173.198 (talk) 17:53, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
FWIW, 75.67.173.198, the seeds of Pokémon were sown much earlier: Capsule Monsters was a manga created in 1990, and the influence on Pokémon is clearly visible. That being said, I don't see why "which came first" is such a giant point of contention; Plan 9 from Outer Space came out before The Shawshank Redemption, but hey, insecurity is a malevolent little demon.
