For games= Pokemon 
For anime= Digimon (I never thought of this as a clone, due to its actual story, blah blah blah)

Yeah! If you count the sub species there would be around 1000 Digimon, especially since every Digimon has an 'X' species. (There's an Agumon and an AgumonX) The X species is a like an evil variation... That's why I said over 500. I didn't count the X species. 
 
As for my personal preference, I like Digimon over Pokemon. The first two seasons certainty showcased characters I truly care for. The third and 5th seasons were able to do the same thing. The Pokemon series does a good job in focusing on Ash but after investing TLC to the other characters in the first season and then having them change without an actual closure to like Digimon did was something I couldn't get on-board with!

Digimon as a whole, the season ending battles and movies (at least the first 4) are awesome, the music is better, Brave Heart is incredible, and when Wada Kouji came to Argentina I was in the public with an Agumon shaped lighter swinging my arms with the acoustic version of butterfly... 
The others seasons are cool, but the first is flawless

I watched and liked both as a kid. Digimon was definitely the better show. If I'm remembering correctly, I liked Digimon because the second season had the first season kids, but older. I thought that was cool. Anyways, I would (and kind of want to) watch Digimon again, but not Pokemon.

Then which subspecies are the ones who are evil? 
EDIT: Oh wait! I just realized I was thinking of the black gears and those spear things in Season 2

I loved Digimon the most, the characters actually had some development!

I enjoy them both, but I grew up with Pokemon.

Oh dear God, there is a ton of nostalgia in both of those franchises for me.
 
I think the first time I saw Pokemon was at my older brother's friends cottage, where he had rented that one episode where they go onto that cruise ship. I was either four or five. That was also the time the aforementioned friend rented the first episodes of Batman Beyond for me (that guy was awesome). And this one time when my brother made me stay awake until after 10 o'clock (really late for a little kid) to sit through an episode of Seventh Heaven just so we could see a commercial for the Pokemon League!
 
Digimon. I liked that way better than Pokemon, and still do. The first time I saw this was at my grandparents house. It was the episode where Tai is afraid to go through that wall.... fence.... thing. I told my brother about it, and he yelled at me for watching a "copy" of Pokemon. That become hilarious later on, becaue HE ended up becoming a much bigger fan of Digimon than Pokemon. We would watch new episodes every weekend on channel 55. I remember just freaking out the first time Agumon and Gabumon warp digivolved into Wargreymon and MetalGarurumon. Then we watched 02, then Tamers. Years later, I came across Frontier completely by accident. So I got to enjoy that too.
 
Good times :)

In terms of video games. Pokemon dominates Digimon.  In terms of anime, I enjoyed the Digimon anime more.

no, what I mean is that I was thinking of something that made Digimon evil... I was thinking of the Black Gears from season 1 and the Black Spears from season 2.

I like both franchises but between the animes I prefer Digimon over Pokemon. Mostly because the story is a little more mature while the Pokemon anime is still geared towards little kids.

Altogether Pokemon.

I don't know, those first two seasons or whatever want to call them of Digimon were pretty freaking awesome. At least that's how I remember them to be!
