Dungeons and Dragons vs Magic The Gathering vs Pokemon

Why Dungeons and Dragons and Magic: The Gathering were kept separate:

D&D and Magic have fundamentally incompatible brand strategies. This was once expressed as "asses, monsters & friends".
D&D is the game where you and your friends kick the asses of monsters.
Magic is the game where you kick your friends' asses with monsters.
(Pokemon, btw, was the game where the monsters, who were your friends, kicked each-other's asses.)
