Let's face it - most of the hate garnered towards Digimon is solely because of the awful dialogue in the dub.
How I feel towards Digimon today... It's hard to say, considering that I'm watching Pokemon D/P right now and haven't watched Digimon for a long time (due to the downfall brought about by the god-awful Xros Wars). I'm glad to hear about the 15th anniversary Adventure revival, of course, but strictly speaking, Digimon has seen better days.
You won't hear me arguing about the plot quality of the seasons prior to Xros Wars, of course, especially when compared to Pokemon (Seriously, Satoshi? A level 5 Snivy? And what's with Cyrus' mysterious disappearance in D/P?). However, it's undeniable that Pocket Monsters is doing a hell lot better than Digimon in terms of its anime and movies - profit-wise anyway, let's not going into its writing quality. I really wish to see a comeback from Digimon next year with the release of Digimon Adventure 03, and not just any comeback, but one that could match the quality of Digimon Tamers that practically blew both Digimon and Pokemon away with its superior standards as a respectable adult anime... but that's unlikely to happen any time soon. This is more likely just a gimmick to sell the 15th anniversary merchandises, unfortunately.
Seriously, I miss the days when Tamers was around. Digimon deconstructed many of the tired tropes and cliches of Pokemon and was finally the cool kid in the neighborhood, of which the most prominent one was probably fighting each other with your Pokemon, an attitude which Ruki accepted with stride. Don't get me started with Juri's depression arc - that's what a real depression looks like in real life, Pokemon, not Hikari's semi-emo phase.
Honestly though, D/P is undeniably Pokemon's best season yet - dub songs aside. It's a shame to see that it couldn't match Digimon's maturity for long when Best Wishes came along. I don't even know what X/Y looks like now, with that Serena kid around. Hopefully, with 2015, Digimon could seize this chance to out-compete Pokemon once again, just like in the old days, when actually intelligent people know for a fact which of the franchise has the better story and characters. I love my Pokemon, but as long as Tamers is unbeaten (seriously, it's written by the guy who wrote Serial Experiments Lain, what do you expect?), my heart will always stand with Digimon.
