This Digmon / Pokemon Cross Over Is The Perfect 90s Nostalgia

If you grew up in the 90s then there is a great chance that catching fictional monsters made up a significant portion of your free time. Two series dominated the school yards of the late 1990s, Nintendo’s Pokemon and Bandai’s Digimon: Digital Monsters.  Many recess arguments were had about whether Charmeleon could melt Agumon in a split second with its flame thrower.

Now that Pokemon is back on the popular cultural radar thanks to Pokemon GO and Digital Monsters have been invading Japanese theatres with the six-part original series revival Digimon Tri films, it’s time to relive this 20-year-old rivalry with an amazing mash-up video.

Created by YouTuber NiLowtherr this fusion of monstrous proportions combines the aesthetics of original American Digimon 01 intro + theme with Nintendo’s iconic critters.

Which side did you root for? I was on #TeamPikachu but secretly tuned in every morning to Fox kids to see how the adventures of Taichi & friends would progress.
