You are on the computer one fine day when a magical being pops right behind you. He says that he has the power to bend reality and turn the world into one of three choices:

Yu Gi Oh: Yu Gi Oh is a big card game success. Like in the TV show, you can duel on the streets, win prizes, appear on TV as a celebrity, and so on. (Think o Star Craft in Korea, except in the world with better technology.)

Pokemon: Same as the TV show, where at 10, you are sent out into the world to become a Pokemon trainer and fight gym leaders. You can stop training at any time.(There are all the Pokemon from each season, just in different regions.)

Digimon: Like the show, you and a some friends(there also might be other tamers out there) now about the Digital World. You have a partner and a Digivice that you can use to enter the world at any time and help your Digimon digivolve

What world would you chose and why?

Extra Credit: If not these, what show would you want the world like and why?

@CODYSF: i know, but id like to see more of a comic book nerd take on it. nerds are way more invested into alternate realities, anime nerds arent as much, to me, they are more invested in stories, not how they would be interpreted in real life, they are more interested in not really concepts brought in real life because anime is so different

Digimon easy. I suck at trading card games and i'd rather have one awesome partner than try to get everyone ever. It's like Tai said "Agumon was the greatest Christmas present ever"

Must not be that hard of a job, since they expect you to be able to do it at age 10.

Probably Digimon or Pokemon, I might sway towards Digimon more though seeing as I always liked the friendship between you and your Digimon over catching and training different Pokemon. But it would be fun to instead of going to school, travel around the world, meet different people, and catch a bunch of different creatures and what not.
 
Yu-Gi-Oh! on the other hand...the last thing I want is for my soul to be trapped inside a little card after losing a game with my friends... O_O

True, but the inhabitants of pokemon seem to have some superhuman resistance to elemental attacks like being hit with enough electricity to light a city or with hot enough fire to canonlly melt rock, so I'm not that worried. Plus while I haven't watched it since the Jotto region if I remember correctly in the anime version vs. the game pokemon are generally friendly and its humans who engage them in battle versus being attacked.

I think that would be awesome if you had the supplies and the occasional human traveling companion (of course along with 6 pokemon) even though I would usually travel alone

As for Yugioh I definitely wouldn't want to live there but I would love if the card game became popular again, I was awesome at that game

Partially true, there are very few incompetent earth benders even though they are a couple in the series, and while all the air benders were wiped out it is suggested that they were heavily out numbered and also taken by surprise, so you could say there were no incompetent air benders at all, at least none were seen. The Water Nation have the second highest rate of incompetent bend they also have the second lowest rate of living benders and have been oppressed since the before the series started so they kind of have an excuse. The Fire benders have abundant resources to learn (while water scrolls are incredibly rare and there are virtually no teachers or masters) along with them actually being encouraged to become benders so they have no excuse.

Well, the show's creators say it again and again that all four elements are equal in strength, it depends on the user as to how powerful they are. Yes, the Fire Nation is the bad guy, and the Aang Gang are the good ones, so they take out fodder Fire Nation soldiers quite easily, but if you think about it, besides Air, fire is the most easily accessible element, it can be created on the drop of a dime, you can use it to manipulate already existing flames, the things that competent benders can do with it are amazing. Like you said, the fire BENDERS have no excuse, maybe the soliders aren't as compentent with their element as their opponents are with their's. I mean when you put masters like Aang, Katara or Toph up against a regular firebender, of course they will win. the same could be said in vice versa when Zuko easily defeated a fodder Earth Bender character in "Zuko Alone"  
 
 
Annnnnyway, if I had to choose an element, I'd pick Air, it is my birth element, and I could use it to fly, which is pretty awesome.

I choose Pokemon because there is less of being the chosen one or following destiny excuses. There are exceptions which they should doing less since it takes the lore away. The world is in more depth it not always the end of the world when they come. You can be practical with Pokemon.

I didn't know that all the elements were equal in strength, I figured fire and earth would out do air and water but that air and water would make up for it with adaptability. Anyway everything you sad was true, maybe the fire nation needs to up the difficulty of their training program

Lol yes, the Fire Nation were slacking. but watch Legend of Korra, it just aired, and they show the bending elements in a much more balanced light, as a matter of fact, they have tournaments where the benders of equal talents go head to head, it's pretty cool.

I have to say the creators of Avatar ridiculously overpowered the Firebenders. Not only because they can create fire from thin air (unrealistic), they usually have the strongest characters. Let's do a roster count.

Air: Aang, Gyatso

Water: Katara, Hama, Pakku, Foggy Swamp,

Earth: Toph, Bumi, Haru, Long Feng

Fire: Zuko, Zhao, Jeong Jeong, Azula, Ozai, Iroh,

Look at the differences. Add that to the fact they gave the Firebenders Lightning while all Water and Earth get is Metalbending which is only Toph, and Plantbending, and Bloodbending. Though Bloodbending was a nice one.

#45 Posted by The Stegman (22992 posts) - - Show Bio
@Jnr6Lil: How is creating Fire out of thin air unrealistic? the reason they can create it is because fire itself is created, unlike water, earth and air, it doesn't naturally occur, it has to be made. And I wouldn't say they have the STRONGEST characters, Aang has beaten Zuko several times with just airbending, I also think Katara and Toph could pull it off. same with the masters, Jeong Jeong isn't necessarily more powerful than Pakku, or Bumi. 
 
As for lightning, not all firebenders can use it, matter of fact, only three have shown it, just like metal bending or blood bending, it comes with practice. I think the creators were right in saying no bending art is more or less powerful than the other, it is all dependent on the user.

@The Stegman: With fire you need oxygen, heat and fuel. Them making it our of their thin hands is so unrealistic. And yes I would say they have the strongest characters. An Azula that's sane unlike she was during Sozin's Comet and an Ozai could defeat the majority of Team Avatar. So could Iroh. Zhao and Jeong Jeong we really don't know.

But still, Lightning is something that is deadly. Metal and Bloodbending aren't necessarily deadly and have weaknesses. Bloodbending can only be used during a full moon and metalbending is still not fully developed. Lightning has its weakness but its weakness is also hard to use. (Redirection)

Avatar should've gave each element two sub skills

Fire: Lightning & Combustion

Water: Plantbending and Bloodbending

Earth: Wood and Metal Bending

Air: Sound and Oxygenbending (Bloodbending but the Air Version)

if this are the anime universes then POKÉMON no doubt. Digimon is too dangerous and the whole digimon universe (and also real world) depend on you when you are just a kid.

Yu gi Oh has the same problem, it's dangerous, soul trapping and stuff, not as fun because the monsters aren't that real and the world itself isn´t very cool besides the card game.

Pokémon though, it's extremely safe, you can get a lot of Pokémon with you, you can enter contests, championships, everyone is happy, there's no poverty and you only need to save the world ocasionally, and even then, some legendary pokémon come up and help you. SO yeah... POKEMON ALL THE WAY!!

Azula is a prodigy, she was born with natural skills, even without firebending she's a dangerous opponent, as for Ozai, he's the freakin firelord, so yeah, he's gonna be powerful, he has to be in order for him to be any threat to a fully realized Avatar.  
Bloodbending and Metal bending are both pretty dangerous, and Lightning does have a weakness, like you said, redirection, and it's very very hard to learn, you have to put your emotions aside and channel it, (something not even Zuko could do) as well as do the channeling correctly or else it can explode in your face.

@The Stegman: I would say Ozai and Azula weren't natural. They both had to strive to be recognize by their fathers due to being the younger sibling so that pushed them more. But Bloodbending can't be done under a full moon and Metal well you need metal. Lightning can be done naturally and like you said redirection is hard to learn,
