Both are about Food.

Toriko is about fighing people and finding food.
Fighting Foodons Is about making food that Fights people.

and they both have some really good JOkes and humor  
Both shows do not take them themselves Seriously and thats what I like about them both.
One is about war and other world problems

and one is about food and how it can fight BUt either way you look at it They're both Funny Really Funny. 
Both shows Have battles

have cute and funny moments

and Both have food in them well in pokemon they eat food and in fighting foodons the food fights. But still good show.

They both are very very funny
Now one is towards more adultish audiens
