On Pokemon and Digimon

Does anyone else feel Pokemon and Digimon have gone too far. The feeling I get among fans is that Digimon was good from Seasons 1-3. They were reasonably consistent. Seasons One and Two took place in the same universe and Season Three allowed for their existence as a television show. But then Season Four takes place in all-new universe, and then Season Five in a totally new one, and now Season Six. Sure, I get the official explanation of the multiverse but it’s getting annoying and the series has lost something of its original nature. And this has also happened to Pokemon. Everybody loved the first two generations of Pokemon games. Red and Blue and Yellow tied nicely with Gold and Silver and Crystal. The sequel aspect of the second generation was a big draw and worked amazingly well. Pokemon started to lose something with the third generation, went even further with the fourth generation and has totally lost it with the fifth generation. You can make a cohesive story out of the first two generations. You can connect that story and keep the cohesion of the world with the third and fourth generations but the fifth generation takes place in a new area with none of the Pokemon from the first four generations. Both of these series make the mistake of sacrificing quality for quantity and it saddens me. In my heart, Digimon will always end after the third season and Pokemon will end after the fourth Generation.
