I'm confused on where X-Antibodies fit in the lore.
Did the X-Program actually happen? Is it a thing that will happen in the future? Is it a seperate universe story?
I know Yggdrasill genocides everything without the antibody and creates a new world but I don't understand where that fits at all with any other lore or canons. Also, how is Minervamon X affected when Minervamon lives in Homeros' Digital World, Iliad?

They're mostly canon in universes in which Yggy uses the program, but there's even times where they show up in universes in which this doesn't happen (unless it did happen but was before we see said universes).

as for Minervamon, a lot of time time they don't care about "Illiad", and just have the Olympos members live in the same world as everyone else, so in that instance it can effect them as they just live in the world that he destroyed/tries to destroy.

So I guess in some unvierses, those Digimon would be considered "non-canon"... until Yggy does his thing, which is probably inevitable in every universe as something that will ALWAYS happen.

First of all, since you seem to be talking about the general profile lore, most things happening in whatever other media are basically irrelevant, in the sense of strict continuity, although they might contain facts that could potentially be assumed to apply to the profiles as well.
It could be argued that in the case of the profiles there is barely any timeline to adhere to in the first place. Besides a few points of ancient history, and organizaton specific events fitting everything into a coherent story never seemed a big concern of the profiles anyway. If we look at how for Digimon of anime origin sometimes events, or similes of events from their continuity are awkwardly transplanted into their profiles it would be hard for the writers to be consistent about it, even if they actually tried.
Not even the main "story" of the V-pets tends to be mentioned in an actually universal sense even though here the intent of placing it in that very same world seems to be the clearest there. The absence of references to the X-Program is only a single example of this. The big "Tempest" storyline of the Digimon Twin goes similarly unmentioned in anything but the profiles of Digimon connected to it for example. Events just seem to appear and disappear whenever they please and it's the same in this case. No X-Digimon were released for about a decade so X Digimon related events were just dropped from the scenario. Now they are making more all that stuff is suddenly popping up again but in the meantime the "story" was just stuck in Nirvana.

That said, the Olympos Twelve getting connected to the X-antibody is probably not simply an oversight or a case of willfull ignorance. Firstly you need to remember that Minervamon X was the result of a popularity contest. They said they would let fans decide the next X-antibody Digimon and Minervamon won so they made the X-form regardless of how potentially wonky it fits with the lore right now. Of course they put her into the selection in the first place, so a more optimistic interpretation would assert that this was a direction the story would go in either way, and we're getting a out-of-context preview of things to come. After all, back when we got the Digivice ver.15th (debuting Jesmon), oblique hints were already dropped that something involving "Yggdrasil's will" and a "virus" would lead to a meeting between the Olympos Twelve and the Royal Knights, so that might be building up to a big "Event" involving both groups and something X related.

The x virus is canon to media that makes it canon. So the x antibody movie and at least some of the virtual pets. Iirc it was kinda confirmed that the 20th anniversary devices take place in the new digital world and the DMX goes back to the old digital world (from the original vpets and pendulums) after the x virus (which was first in the d-cyber and penX). I think it's fairly safe to say that most devices post-penX take place in the new digital world

oh, okay, so it's just extra backstory put there for story writers. It's not a universal constant like Devimon being virus type, Leomon dying, or Gatomon getting Etemon pregnant

All Digimon media is canon. There are just different universes, timelines, etc... In one universe, for example, Agumon may be able to digivolve into Centalmon, but in another universe, Agumon is not able to digivolve into Centalmon. Both are canon, the evolution capacities of Digimon just depends on the universe they're from. Same goes for X-Antibody Digimon. They obviously don't exist in the world of Digimon World 3, for example, but that makes neither DMW3 nor the X Antibody Digimon non-canon. Just different universes with different settings and rules.

Was a joke. Digimon can't reproduce, so even if Gatomon and Etemon dated they- well, you get the idea.

Digimon can reproduce. They do it via cross pollination. My sister and I managed to crossbreed a Dianamon and a Betamon in dawn and dusk and my sister got a Sunmon egg as a result. Pretty sure the gettin a sunmon part was a glitch though.

Blame Beelzemon. If he didn't have the X-Antibody form then this would be impressive for weaker mons, but not much for the Top Tiers. But the fact the a Conceptual being has to obtain the X-Antibody to survive makes it an insane and extremely consistent resistance feat.

I guess the one getting the X Antibody is an individual instance, not the ideal/conceptual Daimaou.
