We don't often post about random new Digimon in the news section (except when they are relevant to other news) due to just how often new Digimon tend to pop up, but these two aren't quite your average Digimon.

We have info on new Digimon for the 20th Anniversary V-Pet that will likely get a lot of people talking.


First up is BlitzGreymon.
His level is Ultimate, his type is Cyborg, and his attribute is Virus.
A subspecies of WarGreymon, it is an Ultimate form for Greymon-type Digimon, endowed with electricity-producing heavy weapons.

Attacks:
It can inflict damage using electricity against regular enemy troops, but against strong bulky foes, it uses both arms to pierce the foe with Plasma Stake, pouring in electricity, destroying them from within. [Plasma Stake]
The Thunder Vernier (thrusters) on its back can rotate forward to shoot thunder, but when reversed it can utilize its emissions to increase its propulsive power. [Thunder Vernier]
It releases plasma particles into its surroundings, using them to erect a barrier. [Elec Guard]








Then we have CresGarurumon.
His level is Ultimate, his type is Beast Knight, and his attribute is Data.
A final form of Garurumon. Just like Z'dGarurumon, it is a unique subspecies of MetalGarurumon.

Attacks:
Its body is coated with Gold Chrome Digizoit armor that can deflect physical attacks, and its specialty is deftly wielding the Yellow Beast Crescent Moon Blade. [Gold Beast Scimitar/Kijuuengetsutou]
It can spin its whole body, slicing with all of its sharp edges to assault its enemies using the Beast Wolf Great Rotation attack. [Beast Wolf Great Rotation/Juuroudaikaiten]
It is capable of molding its Kijuu Engetsutou into countless forms using ice, which it then uses to swing towards the enemy. [Fierce Ice Moon Fang/Geki Hyougetsuga]




I believe these are the first 'new' Digimon we know of for the 20th Anniversary V-Pets that aren't from Zubamon's line.

We're aware this is being discussed elsewhere on the forum, we chose to wait to post it as news until we had reasonably good translations of the details, and new Digimon like this certainly deserve a news thread for discussion.

We expect to find out more new Digimon from the 20th V-Pet next week.

Thanks to Ukyou for the translations and TMS for some additional details.

Update- Tweaked some translated details based on info from garm.

Nice!

It was to be expected, more additions to the Agumon and Gabumon line. But since these are different and cool enough that I'll give it a pass.

I remember glibly saying that we needed a new Greymon Ultimate now that a new season of anime is out. Mostly because I like seeing all the Greymon from each season lined up next to each other. I didn't expect it to actually happen. But I'm honestly really happy with this new all-red thunder-element model! (There's got to be a Gundam joke in there somewhere...)

If he shows up in Tri, can we add him to the WtW banner?

Just a few tweaks to the profiles if you don't mind! :>

[Elec Guard] It releases plasma particles into its surroundings, using them to erect a barrier.
[Fierce Ice Moon Fang/Geki Hyougetsuga] - It is capable of molding its Kijuu Engetsutou into countless forms using ice, which it then uses to swing towards the enemy.

I really like Blitzgreymon (I feel like drawing fanart right now haha), though it looks like it would've been related to Chaosdramon or something.
Cresgarurumon really reminds me of a friend's fan Garurumon variant drawn way long ago, aside from the gold colour scheme :x

kid of bored of yet another Greymon\Garurumon. That said... they are the component for Alter-B, arent they?

BlitzGreymon reminds me a little of ChaosDramon and ShineGreymon Burst Mode.
CresGarurumon I'd pair with JagerDorurumon.

Both would fit with the XrosWars mons

Actually, now that you mention it, Shoutmon and Dorulumon would look good evolving into Blitz and Cres here.

I agree with sirtao. The addition of this 2 new digimon makes me hope for the inclusion of the Alter-B.

Alter-B's profile in Next Order apparently mentions he's an Omegamon Alter-S which evolved with Black Digitron, so because of the resemblance I would theorize Blitz and Cres become Alter-S. Also, I hope Blitz's armor is Red Chrome Digizoit.

I'm... quite disappointed that the new Greymon isn't an Appmon. I'm glad that we get a new Garurumon though, since ShineGreymon, DeckerGreymon, and ZekeGreymon have no Garurumon counterpart. Also, I think CresGarurumon looks more like ZekeGreymon's counterpart due to the gold color.

To me, BlitzGreymon looks like someone decided it was a good idea to Jogress ShineGreymon Burst Mode and SaintGargomon. Also, is it just me, or does CresGarurumon remind anyone else of MirageGaogamon?

Although, jokes apart, it would be awesome to see them animated maybe in Digimon Adventure Quattro or in a crossover arc in a Tamers sequel story.

Well, V-Jump is leaking for other places, so I wouldn't be surprised if we got a little bit more context for these two being in the anniversary V-Pet really soon.

I like how BlitzGreymon and CresGarurumon invert the traditional design paradigm for WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon subspecies in that Blitz shoots and Cres slashes. Usually its the opposite.

i.e., KaiserGreymon and VictoryGreymon have a BFS. MagnaGarurumon and Z'dGarurumon have a BFG.

I wonder if they have any unique evolution requirements outside of the usual MetalGreymon / WereGarurumon base forms.

Hmm, when I first saw it, I immediately thought it was supposed to be an evolution for Zubamon.

But regardless, I really like these designs and would like to see them in the next Story/World game.

There’s no way クーレス is just Cres- with that long vowel, but the digimon is clearly crescent-themed. Hmmm. Maybe it’s supposed to be like cool, as in ice attacks? But this Garurumon is less ice-themed than most. Perhaps it’s an onomatopœia, maybe meant to evoke garu?

Also, is it just me, or does CresGarurumon remind anyone else of MirageGaogamon?
You mean the only other beast knight digimon, from a line that was based on the Garurumon line? Yeah, it crossed my notice.

Hmm, when I first saw it, I immediately thought it was supposed to be an evolution for Zubamon.
I briefly had the same thought, then wondered if maybe he was wielding him as a weapon, but his profile would probably say as much. If these two are going to jogress into Alter-S though, it explains the gold on Alter-B. Interesting that Blitz Greymon is a virus-type: clearly another inversion of the usual (the Garurumon is still a data), but I would have thought that Alter-S would be a holy version of Alter-B, but he probably won’t be if he’s a virus. As it is, though, while the Next Order profile describes Alter-B as an Alter-S that lost its mind, the Linkz one describes him as an Alter-S with black digitron added, which should make him stronger — an evolution, in which case it seems the arc of the Alter-S line is to start nasty and end completely demonic.

Thank goodness its not a new appmon

Quite happy with the design and the principle. At least its not some recolor with altered backstory (looking at you black wargreymon!)

Btw have you guys heard of the rumour about V-Jump going to tease a new Story game? Hoping it would be for the switch :3

Seems like a reverse of the original versions. Instead of a slash'em warrior, BlitzGreymon is heavy artillery. Instead of heavy artillery, CresGarurumon is a slash'em warrior.

How would that even have worked? Well, I guess a palæontology app would hardly be more improbable than Cometmon. Alternatively they could both be themed after tactical war game apps or something. Yeah, in retrospect, it would have been nice, though it seems they had already committed to this Alter-S thing, and it’s a good shtick: as much as the franchise is overloaded with clones of the Greymon and Garurumon lines, including of Omegamon, there have been relatively few expansions of the main line itself, especially of anything touching Omegamon specifically, and in this era of level inflation I feel that it’s worth doing. I think a lot of us sense this intuitively, which is why we haven’t gotten any ‘not another Greymon’ reactions yet: this particular use is actually not horribly overdone. Also giving back-channel routes to the same evolution is pretty interesting — at least when that final thing is a, what, fourth-tier ultimate? That gives them plenty of room for cool, elaborate designs even if they are retracing their evolutionary steps. It also helps that on the level of individual design, they’re pretty innovative: this is perhaps the first time we’ve had a fully robotic, fully humanoid dragon man, and while we’ve had a couple of doggo knights, CresGarurumon is the first one that retains the classical hunched werewolf body frame. He’s like if Mercurymon became a knight.

Still, I wish we were at a point where anniversary digimon could be drawn from other well-known ones. Who wouldn’t like some more Imperial Dramon or Dukemon modes, zeta hybrids, or a fusion for Shine Greymon and Mirage Gaogamon? Maybe someday.

It reminds me a lot more to AncientGarurumon tbh.
Word, down to the ‘warrior of light’ æsthetic. LOL, come to think of it, the whole fire spirit line was preoccupied with blasting and the light spirit line was slashers … until they got to the zeta hybrids, and then it reversed so they could ape War Greymon and Metal Garurumon. That was probably incidental rather than intentional though. How undialectical, pure ideology. This is deliberate and self-conscious which makes it better.

Why do I feel like these be giving to Matt and tai in part 6 as new mega for them use
Could be, but with the virus typing, I’m guessing not. I think we’re going to get a super-Omegamon formed from all eight ultimates.

that true. but at the same time, it feel like they could still introduce these two in the series
