    Okay, so the digimon evolution line I came up with is
    Digitama
    ->Kuramon(movie)
    ->Tsumemon(movie)
    ->Tukaimon(Digimon next order, sunburst, and moonlight)
    ->Witchmon(Bo-1003, Digimon Masters)
    ->Wisemon(Bo-1004)
    ->BelphemonSM(Digimon Cyber Sleuth, Linkz, and Hacker's Memory)
    ->BelphemonRM
    ->BelphemonRM X-Antibody

    Digimon Reference guide shows that BelphemonRM is about half the height of Examon when he's standing up instead of crouching.
    Digimon Savers showed Belphemon can increase his size (probably indefinitely) by at least 2 fold by absorbing energy such as electricity so he can be as big as or possibly taller than Examon.
    Digimon Savers showed Belphemon can shoot beams out of his mouth and dark wind blasts out of his hands even though these attacks have no name.
    Digimon Savers showed how Lampranthus looks like even if it's shot out from BelphemonSM
    Digimon Cyber Sleuth showed how Gift of Darkness looks like. And possibly the other cards.
    Tailmon/Gatomon showed partner digimon can stay as champions indefinitely instead of rookies. Also XROS wars showed a Witchmon as a partner digimon.
    Digimon Savers showed BelphemonRM can smile, and when he does he looks absolutely terrifying! Digimon Cyber Sleuth showed BelphemonRM is an Ultra (aka Super Ultimate) level digimon.

    I prefer SkullGreymon as the perfect form but alas I cannot find a way to get him to become Belphemon without relying on jogress/fusion.

    Canon does seem like a loose term, given that they're all technically official media. Given the fact that a large number of Digimon don't really have a tailored evolution nor pre-evolution, it's often just open to interpretation.
    There is however evolutions that we do accept it as the main one, because they are commonly used with a specific in mind (and/or featured in the anime), such as Betamon evolving into Seadramon. I also would like to think it could just be simply out of a popularity contest on what's considered "mainline", but you can still interpret it in any way you like. Like, little may know that Angemon was initially unrelated to Patamon prior to the anime, Patamon would've normally evolved into Unimon as the default evolution and wouldn't have evolved into Angemon at all, despite both Digimon debutting from the same line of V-Pets (Digital Monster). Wonder if that's why they introduced Pegasusmon later.

    It's also probably should be said, the evolutions used into alternatives aren't always completely random. Usually there may be a matching type involved, part of a similar group, from the same V-Pet, or maybe simply by a likeness in design/concept, since Digimon tend to be designed in groups with similar traits. It's actually no coincidence that Holydramon and Saberleomon do look alike, or how Gazimon and Gizamon's names are practically anagrams of each other.

    Removed the accidental double posts.
    Also, as Vande pointed out earlier, for the lines themselves we have a specific thread: https://withthewill.net/threads/1795...ationships-V-4

    Talking back to a member of staff is never going to end well. I've removed the post. I strongly suggest you don't re post it or similar.

    Right, itís all canon so long as it was released by Bandai or Toei.

    I do think there is something to be said about how certain evolutions just making more sense than others.

    If Iím not mistaken Angemon debuted in the second line of v-pets as one of Gabumonís evolutions and Patamon debuted in the third.

    Centauromon was another potential evolution for Patamon so itís only natural they would give him a horse related evolution in 02 I suppose

    They presumably saw Unimon as Patamon's original makes-sense evolution, since they're both winged mammals, and their attack names (Air Shot and Holy Shot) are similar. But yes, version 2 was the debut of not only Angemon, but of Kabuterimon and Birdramon as well, all of which of course would later be linked to different Child forms.

    I was looking through this Evolution Predictor for Digimon World the other day, and it seems Patamon was given preferential digivolution to Angemon in this game (which up to that point I thought was a mechanic unique to Next 0rder). I checked some of the other Rookies, and a few of them line up too, though some favour more than two and/or don't match the anime series.

    Most of the non-Taichi Digimon partners from Adventure came from the pendulum series. (I believe Lillimon was either created for the show or debuted before any of the video games or virtual pets, likewise Pyocomon debuted a few months in the anime before elsewhere but Bandai might of had the character designs already to give to Toei). Angemon being an evolution to Patamon came from Digimon World. (I think Angemon was an evolution for Gabumon in the 2nd v-pet to contrast Agumonís ability to become Devimon in the first?). HolyAngemon was created for the V-Tamer manga and I believe the anime was the first to make the connection that Angemon>HolyAngemon.The anime tended to be a lot better at streaming evolution lines though. Like I donít think Saberleomon and MetalEtemon were associated with Leomon or Etemon at all pre-anime.
