Not really the same thing. A pocket hole would be similar to a dowel. A biscuit has pretty much 0 strength and relies fully on the glue bonding, it's really for making sure your boards line up nicely.

A comparison of biscuit vs Domino (Festool) might be more appropriate.
I can't speak for other brands, but the Lamello biscuits that I use are compressed beech and are cut with the grain at 45 degrees to the bond line. Once expanded the biscuits actually provide significant strength even without glue.

Um.. I thought clamps are the ones to make sure the boards are well aligned

Nope, clamps will hold your boards in place while the glue dries but when the glue is wet your pieces will slide around like slippery fish as you try to apply the clamping force. You need some means to enforce alignment.

Makes sense. Will biscuit join work for mdf too?
