We have some new Appmon updates courtesy of what appears to be pages from a toy catalogue.

Image Thumbnail (custom)

First up, we get a reveal of the 5th AppliDriver...

and it's Yuujin!

Yuujin will have a new, upgraded AppliDrive called the AppliDrive DUO. This new AppliDrive (and Yuujin being an AppliDriver?) will happen in April.

Haru and the others will receive their upgrades to have DUOs around June.

Image Thumbnail (custom)

The new AppliDrive DUO will cost 5,500 yen for its product, and there will be sets called "Appmon Pairing Cover DUO" to convert them to Haru, Eri, Tora, and Rei's that cost 800 yen.

The DUO cover sets are:
Gatchmon Version- includes Gatchmon and Globemon Appmon Chips
Dokamon Version- includes Dokamon and Oujamon Appmon Chips
Musimon Version- includes Musimon and Entermon Appmon Chips
Hackmon Version- includes Hackmon and Revivemon Appmon Chips



Update- In June they will sell Haru's AppliDrive DUO that will come with a Globemon chip.



The new AppliDrive DUO will feature Appliarise mode, the Encount System, Applink, and a Collect mode.


Yuujin's Appmon Buddy will be Offmon, from the Appmon 3ds game (can Onmon be far behind?)

Images show Offmon's higher forms Logamon and Shutmon.

In addition, we get images of Biomon, Beautymon, Fakemon, Charismon, who are stated to be 'the strongest enemies.' (Update- A misunderstanding while writing for the article had incorrect details for these Appmon.)


The Shutmon figure that we first found out about a few days ago we have pictures for.



In addition, the Seven Code Band will appear in the show in March, so not to much of a wait for it.

Big thanks to Peachy for the images. Also thanks to Shadow Shinji who made us aware of some of this about a week ago (the image at the time was only of Yuujin and Offmon. It was so tiny and blurry and damaged it was impossible to tell if it was real or not.)

Offmon huh? That's a cool link to the 3DS game, just ordered the game myself yesterday.

Yeah, Yuujin felt way too important to be a side character. Not a surprise at all.

Ooh, neat that Offmon will be showing up in the series! Makes me think Onmon will appear at some point too. Perhaps as Ai's buddy Appmon. Would make sense as Yuujin and Ai are often portrayed as being Haru's most important contacts outside of the other Applidrivers.

Offmon? I was expecting him to be partnered to Cameramon.
BTW, a couple of things I noticed from the pictures:
1. It appears the DUO doesn't slide like the old Appli Drive, it seems instead you press a button and the circle on top rotates and opens up to insert the chip.
2. Haru, Rei, Astra and Eri all have golden as the second color of their appli drive while Yuujin has white/silver. Could be nothing or it could be a sign that they obtained their DUO from different sources or through different methods.
3. Charismon, Beautymon, Fakemon and Biomon get a lot of protagonism in these, so I guess that almost confirms the god grades from the 3ds game will be their god grades in the anime and not the darkened silhouettes from the poster.

Cameramon is technically history and has an unnamed partner already.

Anyway, I knew the next Chip Dictionary update was coming between late March and April thanks to Ainz but it's good to see news regarding that update.

I also thought that Cameramon would be Yuujin's partner, if only because his chip's logo is featured in the "Digimon Universe: Applimonsters" branding... but, like Watchmon, that could have been a total false positive. Offmon, however, is super cute and makes a ton of sense considering that Shutmon
is a component of the God grade Rebootmon
. (Not sure if this is considered a spoiler? Just being safe)

I... kind of hate the designs of the DUOs compared to the OG model.

I had not realized that Shutmon's swords were actually a pair of scissors. Weird. The figure looks good, though.

Who's that leave to be Cameramon's partner? Just Rei's brother?

Wow, the hero’s buddy winds up paired with the wolf digimon. Why on Earth didn’t that possibility cross my mind?

Images show Offmon's higher forms Logamon and Shutmon. In addition, we see Offmon will have 4 'Kiwame' Appmon forms (upgraded forms.)
You mean Charismon et al? Looks to me more like they’re just Yūjin’s secondary appmon. It would be nice if they were alternate evolutions though: that would be a very Sentai sixth ranger touch.

Makes me think Onmon will appear at some point too. Perhaps as Ai's buddy Appmon. Would make sense as Yuujin and Ai are often portrayed as being Haru's most important contacts outside of the other Applidrivers.
Yarp. They’ll wind up fusing together too since that’s how Onmon’s and Offmon’s god-grade form is achieved. I wonder if their bond will be entirely platonic and based on mutual support of Haru; or explicitly depicted as a platonic reconciliation after Ai loses romantic interest in Yūjin (though I don’t recall him ever showing any in her); or if her seeming interest in Haru is a false flag and she’s going to wind up with alpha male Yūjin in the end anyway, which would be so potentially painful for Haru and such a valuable life lesson for viewers that I can’t imagine they’d actually do it.

Cameramon is technically history and has an unnamed partner already.
There’s nothing technical about it, and that unnamed partner easily could have turned out to be Yūjin. Shit, though, maybe it’s Watson. He’s fucking everywhere and he’s always in the know about the tech shit, so maybe he’s in deep cover.

A misunderstanding between me and shin in making notes lead to a mistake in the article.

I've changed the text significantly in regards to these 4 Appmon.

Hmmm, so are they not Yūjin’s? Or do we just not know? Because their general design and colour scheme look like they might have been conceived as Shutmon’s squad mates, so to speak, but a band of baddies would hardly be unheard of for ​Digimon.

They are... grouped with Yuujin on the page, but it doesn't seem to explicitly tell us that.

Especially since the stuff grouped with Yuujin on the page isn't 'specifically' about Yuujin, but also general story stuff coming up.


If I'm correct:
1- Is about Yuujin.
2- Is about Yuujin's AppliDrive Duo
3- Is about Yuujin's Appmon Buddy, Offmon
4- Is where they show the '4 rival Appmon'
5- This is about the other characters' getting Duos.


I've sent the page to garm to double check if there are additional details to be gleamed.

Looking at the ver.5.0 scan, the chips are now gonna have 2 QR codes? So they're gonna cover up those awesome App designs even more? I'm seriously seeing Bandai releasing a Premium Bandai set of the "important" chips without the QR code.

Small gripe aside, ver.4.0. seems to include a chip for Gatchmon+Dokamon and one for DoGatchmon+Shotmon, that last one seems really interesting, as it implies that Cameramon might be returning.

Could I request a translation of the PR chips in ver.4.0? They seem to be different versions of Bootmon and Shutmon, but they're not Virus versions, and I think they're not Applinks either

Looking at it closely, it seems that they're selling BOTH Haru's Applidrive DUO and his App Cover set in June. I'm guessing that Bandai feels that Haru will probably sell the DUO better than Yuujin.

Didn't even need to look at it closely actually, lol. Blanked on it when writing to be honest.

Added that to the news.

Yeah, kept looking at the release schedule trying to match blurry characters(since I can't read Japanese) before realizing the DUO page had it right there on top of the covers.

Okay getting a proper look at the chips on my computer so let me see if I can identify these using Wikimon:

Starting from the top-left of the page and the set in that corner, we have Gatchmon, Yadomon, Savemon, what I'm assuming to be Ecomon as Batterymon's already out, Trickmon, Moneymon, Kakeimon, Lightmon, Puzzlemon, Racemon, Offmon, DoGatchmon, Vegasmon, Roamon, and Craftmon.

In the top right corner we've got Logimon, Logamon, Shutmon, what I'm assuming is Warudamon, and several I cannot identify.

Bottom-left we have Jetmon, Pipomon, Bookmon, Musclemon, Spamon, Jishomon, Diarimon, Onpamon, one I don't recognize at all, Gossipmon, Coordemon, Docmon, Consulmon, Libramon, and I assume is Bramon.

Bottom-right there's Warpmon and Damedamon as well as the aforementioned Charismon, Beautymon, Fakemon, Biomon, and one I think is Bootmon.

The ones with Logimon and Logamon are an Applinked Mediamon+Dosukomon and Cometmon. The ones with Shutmon are Satellamon and Warudamon. The one after Onpamon is Jammingmon. The blacked out ones with Warpmon and Damedamon are an Applinked Raidramon+Mediamon and an Applinked Globemon+Revivemon. I'm not completely sure about those Applinks, but I think those are it.

Thank you.

I thought that the one in the middle of Satellamon and Shutmon was Warudamon but I wasn't 100% sure on that.

Admittedly part of my problem was that I tried to identify them solely by appearance when I should've been cross-referencing the Kanji/Kana as well, that was my mistake.
