Yeah a lot of them are kind of overdetailed in a way that definitely doesn't appeal to everyone. Some of them are kinda cool though.

And then there's the issue of the natural carriers, which vary from "Definitely overdesigned x-antibody thing" to "why is this not just called [obvious equivalent digimon] X-Antibody" to "That looks like a normal digimon, neat."

In Japan, it's already 1st of April, so it's Tamers' 20th anniversary! The absolute best Digimon has ever been - and, sadly, will likely ever be. The official account has put up art to commemorate this too!

They're also releasing Dim Cards with four of the Tamers protagonists, excluding Terriermon since only two SaintGalgomon variations exist so they'd have to make a new sprite for the third instead of barely editting the same sprite three times.

They could use Gold Rapidmon or Rapidmon X (which is gold)...

And Medarot reciprocated again, with new content this time!

So apparently they're releasing an actual DiM for the Vital Brace that has Omedamon in it... as an additional bonus with the new Medarotch/Medawatch V-Pet.

It's apparently real, it's on P-Bandai's site and can be bought so it'd be literal fraud if it wasn't. However, any Medabot that appears in the Dim Card will not be added to the Vital Bracelet Reference Lab, so they won't get profiles or art or anything. They're essentially cameos.

Who was properly added though is Metabee, who is now playable in ReArise as Omedamon's Child form. Rokusho also appears during evolution (confirming Omedamon is a Jogress that skips all the way from Child to Mega), but isn't playable. Here's both Metabee and Omedamon in action:

Metabee's attack is Meta Machinegun & Meta Missile, Omedamon's is Beetle Cannon & Scissors Sword.

On the other side, GreyWars and GaruruMetal were added to the Medabots gacha. I have no knowledge of this one, but it's still neat that both sides get two playable characters!

Omega Knight was added too, I think, it was created last year but didn't get put in the game.

I'm really glad they're actually doing something with the crossover beyond just the art this year!

Also I they announced that the Medarot DiM is gonna be available separately (probably because of high demand).

I mean the problem with the show is probably not the content so much as that the artstyle and some of the voices are viscerally unpleasant to a lot of people.

Frozomon is like a snow-equipment version of Raidenmon

It's a perfect-level though

no but it's probably intended less as "Frost version of corrupted beast spirit of darkness Velgrmon" and more "Frost Hresvelgr as a pun." Hresvelgr is written フレスベルグ furesuberugu in Japanese, so Frosvelgrmon (フロスベルグモン, furosuberugumon) is only one character away from what Hresvelgrmon would be.

TBF it is a better transliteration of the original katakana name than Diablomon. In hindsight it was probably supposed to be Diavolomon.

I use "Diabolomon" and I've never had anyone actually complain. The greek word it comes from is Diabolos anyway.

I don't mind Mervamon but I wish she had the proper monster-head-with-human-lower-face-in-the-mouth like Marsmon, Mercurymon, Neptunemon, and Minervamon.

Yoxtu is stupid even for Bandai's usual romanization mess ups and I refuse to use it

Yeah some data entry person who isn't good at english or critical thinking typed in "ヨッ!ヨッ!モン" in katakana for the katakana name and then switched the IME to romaji did the exact same keystrokes for the english name (x in front is how you make a character small when it's not in a commonly-used situation in the japanese romaji-to-kana text input systems I've seen)

New KoDokugumon is much better for use as a standalone thing but I think the older design is more suited for "the spiders Dokugumon shoots out as an attack."

They also made Yo!Yo!mon an adult when the submitted art for it (the only previous source) had it as a perfect, but I like it as adult better so it can evolve into mamemons and stuff.

I keep doing double-takes at how red the dekachimons are. And I'm not sure if I can imagine them separately.

I feel hiring Skull/Dark/MusoKnightmon as your bodyguard isn't a great idea.

Yeah the number of good choices there is much lower than the number of choices.

The original chosen childrens' partners becoming the sovereigns wasn't a bad idea. Some of the specific lines used (Or the ones that are similar to them in ReArise) aren't great tho.

The Golux

Yeah I don't think any of the lines are terrible, though they could be improved.

(For those keeping score at home, the lines, based on the ones from ReArise:
Elecmon (virus) > Tuskmon > Triceramon > Qinglongmon
Kamemon > DinoHumon > Orochimon > Xuanwumon
Bearmon > Grizzmon > LoaderLeomon > Baihumon
Muchomon > Akatorimon > Hippogriffomon > Zhuqiaomon
and presumably would have been Bakumon > Monochromon > Megadramon > Huanglongmon)

The thing that feels weird to me is that several of those digimon are later designs than the sovereigns, some much later, and they mismatch aesthetically in weird ways.

But yes the actual scenario where they showed it was in the part where Tri had fumbled the plot ball entirely out of the stadium so it didn't get any kind of good showing. I do like the idea that the original sovereigns evolved from somewhat random things, but the evolving from devas was a succession from that. For that, I like to use Caturamon for Baihumon even though it's a dog because it has aesthetic similarities; North and south are harder because their attributes are different (North is Vaccine and South is virus while east and west are both data). I was vaguely satisfied with Vikaralamon for Xuanwumon and Sandiramon for south, for direct promotions. Mixing them around might be preferable to some people though. As far as the mismatches, there's only so much you can do with mythology.
