Quote from factory.tamigucho.com:
Since 2010, me, Daniella Mesquita, hasn't stopped even a single year creating these mons. I was able to see new mons even in the form of a cloud or a water dropplet that could inspire me to create something new. They were originally intended to be Pokémons, but who know if they won't someday? All I can do now is to open the multiverse to free the mon-catching universe off Nintendo's walled garden. My original dream was that The Pokémon Company could listen to its fans, but I wasn't so wrong as DeFi's community-ownership is here to stay and: if the community can't be heard, they build that themselves. That's what the Tamigucho Universe should be about.
If you think "Pokémon is a legalized roosterfight", please read my thread at Twitter (I'll never call it "X").
First, lets be clear: I love Pokemon.
As fans, we should protect Pokemon and wish for its evolution.
I love Pokemon, not The Pokemon Company/GameFreak/Nintendo. They're different things.
Pokemon is so big to us, fans, to be confined in a single company that don't honor the interests of its investors/fans. We don't have a voice; we turned into "zombies" in the listen-only mode. We say something like: "we need the Portuguese language available" and they don't listen us but when they say: "NEW game; buy it" we listen and do as they want.
Lets be honest: Pokemon didn't only proved to come first but, also, is by far superior than Digimon. Nintendo/The Pokemon Company have a cold heart, but Digimon is Pokemon without a heart (or with a very dark one).
In the 90's/2000's, Pokemon had a competitor: Digimon. Their anime's audiencie did even surpassed that of Pokemon, for a time.
But since Digimon's decline, Pokemon never anymore had a same-niche competitor (Yo-Kai Watch is a serious competitor who led Pokemon to do some controverse copypastes and reset Ash Ketchum & others from the BW/XY to the Sun/Moon series, but isn't same-niche as Digimon was).
As in the 5th item in our vision: the "digital animals who need care, breed & battle" thing shouldn't be monopolized by a single company. The creativity and applications of this concept shouldn't be confined/limited to a walled garden, defined by the company instead of the fans; where the board's interests are of the board itself, not of the investors.
Kids: why being happy when you can be happier? Yo-Kai Watch proved my vision that the Pokemon's concept shouldn't be confined to a single bubble; and outside this bubble, Japanese children felt happier by having more options with more use-cases for Pokemon's concept flourishing outside it.
But Yo-Kais aren't as cute as Pokemons are!
That's why we need diversity but, also, consistensy in the monverse.
If Tamigucho does as Yo-Kai Watch/Axie Infinity and goes beyond Digimon: me, Daniella Mesquita, I'm pretty sure of a thing: GameFreak/The Pokemon Company/Nintendo will sue us.
Principally Nintendo, to which GameFreak/The Pokemon Company begs.
They will sue us like they did to their fans (they don't listen when the fans suggest, and sue when their fans do what they aren't anymore capable of) - will sue us in the maximum extend of the law until they mold us back small enough to be able to laugh and ignore us again (as deservedly was done to Digimon - except for the court which didn't happened).
Mahatma Gandhi once said:
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
Tamigucho's version is:
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you aren't anymore another loser and join them as another winner.
