ok so I've been on a MAJOR Power Rangers kick lately and I found this website that gave all the information on Power Rangers as well as other shows like Beetleborgs and this other show called Kamen Rider Ryuki. I was looking through the subcategory "Contract Beasts" and found these black dragons with gold trim were fairly close in design with a shiny Rayquaza.
now, I don't know if anybody legitimately ripped off the other, because KRR was running the same time that Ruby and Sapphire came out in Japan. maybe it was pure coincidence? i doubt it, because they all look FAR too similar for this to be done by chance.
what do you guys think?
