Digimon is a better show, but pokemon is better game
Pokemon came out first and Digimon borrows heavily from both it and Tamagochi. Pokemon was fairly original when it came out, Digimon was not. Your claim that Digimon look better and are able to speak must be based on the shows rather than the original Digimon, which were toys like Tamagochi with very low resolution screens and no ability to do anything but beep.
Both had good shows, but the Pokemon world seemed far more well thought out right from the beginning. That was likely because Digimon was not originally intended to be a show but to be a short movie.
While I agree that popularity is not the only measure of the quality of something, it is generally true that for something to be popular for decades it has to have pretty good quality. Pokemon has stood the test of time so far, Digimon has not.
How is it better? You have the burden of proof here and do tell. Digimon had personalities and we're able to speak. Digimon's attacks were simply more powerful and some poses a bigger threat to the world than what any pokemon could. Digimon also looked more awesome and clearly more badass than pokemon.Sure pokemon is more popular and makes tons of sells, but don't measure that as it being better when A: it's an opinion and B: Digimon obviously were better in other categories.
