I really doubt that.

For all its faults, Pokémon has the aesthetic and collection down to a T. It's cute and it's fun to collect monsters. Then on top of that in terms of video games (and card/table top games), they were the first to do it and therefore have a massive mindshare.

Perhaps one day something really good (that mainly looks good and cute - so no Digimon) will emerge as an alternative combined with a collapse in the popularity of Pokémon. I can't see that happening any time soon though.
You just don't have the vision kid.

And I still don't know what that is. But I do know what Pokémon (and even Digimon and Yugio) are.

Funny that. It's almost like just being the first isn't enough. That you have to have some, like say, very cute, easy to like characters.
Well Pokemon is much more child friendly compare to SMT series.

And that's why Pokemon will continue being a low budget and low effort franchise for the foreseeable future
