Time for the 20th Anniversary Pendulum!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

The 20th Anniversary Digimon Pendulum is following up on the very popular 20th Anniversary Digimon V-Pets from last year.


We finally have a bunch of information about them, so let's get started.


First up...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Between both colors there will be over 200 Digimon available!

The 20th Pendulum's will each have the contents of the original 6 Pendulum's, with 3 contained in each of the new ones.

The Digimon from the .5 re-releases/revisions will also be included.



Image Thumbnail (custom)

Original Silver Black will contain Digimon from: Nature Spirits, Nightmare Soldiers, Metal Empire
Original Silver Blue will contain Digimon from: Deep Savers, Wind Guardians, Virus Busters



Of course, since it's a special release, we need some new Digimon...

A selection of new Digimon will also be added to Nightmare Soldiers and Virus Busters!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Some really exciting choices being previewed from the new Digimon, all from after the original Pendulum's were released.

Original Silver Black has: Beelzebumon, DarkKnightmon, and MadLeomon.
Original Silver Blue has: Dukemon, MegaloGrowmon, and RizeGreymon.

What other Digimon may appear in the updated Nightmare Soldiers and Virus Busters lineup is currently unknown.



And then there will be some special digi-eggs...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Special digi-eggs will appear based on various conditions to be met such as number of victories in battle mode and Digimon registered in the album.

The Digimon shown off for this are Terriermon and Meicrackmon Vicious Mode for Silver Black and Lopmon and Ryudamon for Silver Blue!

There will be over 40 Digimon raiseable via special digi-eggs (this likely includes evolutions.)



Then we have the new signature Digimon for the Pendulum 20th who will be obtainable regardless of which color you get!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Rudomon!

We first found out about him during previews of the 20th Pendulum, but they've also included a more detailed description.

One of the 'Legend-Arms', who are capable of transforming themselves into weapons. It is the only one among the 'Legend-Arms' capable of transforming itself into a shield. It wields sturdy, steel shields on its head and on both arms, protecting it from attacks coming from any direction. As a Digimon made with protection in mind, there have been records of it protecting areas being targeted by the D-Brigade.

Its Special Move is Wall Rake. Rudomon is able to exhibit its defensive abilities at their maximum strength while it is transformed into a shield.




We also get a preview of Rudomon's evolution line...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

For now they show us his two Baby forms.




Then we get various details regarding raising and battling!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Train while using the pendulum function (shaking the v-pet)! Training results can change based on the pendulum number!




Image Thumbnail (custom)

Just like the 20th V-Pet, raise 2 Digimon at the same time!


Much like the 20th V-Pet, it'll also have an updated life cycle.

Image Thumbnail (custom)

While the life cycle has been updated, it isn't identical to the 20th V-Pet.

Baby 2 is 10 minutes, Child is 12 hours, Adult is 24 hours, Perfect is 40 hours, and Ultimate is 48 hours.

The overall 2 day timeline is the same as the 20th V-Pet, they've just spread out things a bit more evently.


Then we get jogress!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

They show off WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon combining into Omegamon, but they make clear that between the 2 colors of the 20th Pendulum there will be more than 10 Digimn that you'll need to jogress to get.


Time for something new!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Copymon!

An upgrade of the copy function of the 20th V-Pet, you can get a Copymon from another Pendulum 20th (you can also get a Copymon from a 20th V-Pet, but the Pendulum 20th can't transfer anything to the V-Pet 20th.)

This will fill in the data in the album/gallery.

But in the actual appearance of it in the raising area, it will appear tiny due to compression!

Copymon will always appear onscreen to make your raising area more exciting!

If you tag battle the Copymon will gain it's original appearance temporarily.



And back to the pendulum feature!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Attack power will change based on the Pendulum number!


And for those who have collected other V-Pets...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

The original Digimon V-Pets and Pendulums will work. In addition the 15th Anniversary Digivice, the 15th Anniversary D-3, and the 20th Anniversary V-Pets all link to it.

They list a bunch of stuff that won't work for linking including:
The 1999 WonderSwan
CSA Digivice
CSA D-3
Digimon Tamers D-Ark 15th Anniversary Version


They mention if something isn't listed there is no guarantee if it will/won't work.

In addition they mention that even if it does work, they will not be reselling old models.


V-Jump has also put up a video preview of the new 20th Pendulum!

If you want to order a 20th V-Pet for yourself pre-orders are currently open

Premium Bandai has them up for pre-order 3,996 yen.

Pre-Orders close March 29th and they will ship in June.

Update- Changed the above now that pre-orders are open.

Update- Premium Bandai affiliate DEJapan has given us a coupon for WtW users. No affiliate deal, just 350 yen off to save you guys a few bucks.
Coupon Code- PENDULUM20WTW
Original Silver Black at DEJapan
Original Silver Blue at DEJapan




Also...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

To celebrate the Pendulum 20th going up for pre-order Bandai is giving people in Japan another change to get a V-Pet 20th!

Those in Japan need to follow the Bandai Digimon account and retweet this tweet. 6 of the 2nd wave 20th V-Pets will be given away at random.



Premium Bandai is also hosting an English information page for the Pendulum 20th.

Image Thumbnail (custom)

They're also heavily mentioning on their social media and website that they will be available outside of Japan, but for the time being it appears for most of us that just means the 'offiical' intermediary system they've used for awhile. If that changes we will let you know.





Thanks to shin and garm for translation help.

You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
From Japan
Rider Proxy
Nippon-Yasan

The Bandai Premium store has also chosen to affiliate themselves/recommend a few potential shops to be used as intermediaries for non-Japanese buyers:
Buyee
From Japan (this From Japan link shows various items that they waive commission fees for.)
Samurai Buyer
DEJapan

You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the link to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded in the news article for the products are exactly what you'll need to send them.

Some of the intermediaries have a full storefront and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.

Some Fusion Digimon? interesting. Maybe they'll get levels now and be used in future games.

And aw, those are some cute shield babies.

My money's still on MadLeomon being Ultimate/Perfect and AxeKnightmon being Mega.

They're Kotsukomon and Kakkinmon!
Kotsukomon コツコモン could come from 'kotsukotsu', an onomatopoeia for knocking/tapping or steadily/diligently (as in working diligently).
Kakkinmon カッキンモン could come from 'kakkin' (恪勤) which means 'to work seriously/diligently'. I think it could be onomatopoeia for clanging or something? But I'm not too sure about this one yet

Btw I've tentatively translated Rudomon's attack ウォルレーキ as 'Wall Rake', but 'wall' is usually written as ウォール with a long vowel so it's possible the attack name is referring to something else. If anyone has any ideas it'd be great to hear!

What? D-Brigade actually got a comeback? I have a bad feeling about it. Probably Chaosmon will get a new form involves with Legend Arms nah let's hope not.

Those shield babies does look like it's just perfect fit for any Royal Knights' evo lines due to those shields look quite... Old fashioned?

Copymon... I bet that Copymon will be just another doomed ones like Cardmon and others... :/

Finally throwing the D-Brigade a bone eh? For a while I thought they forgot about them.

Anyway, I'll keep an eye on this one since I ended up liking the 20th anniversary V-Pet, so I wouldn't mind having this alongside it.

I haven't played Mobius FF, but if I'm not wrong the name is a reference to FF1's Warrior of Light (so contracted into WoL) so I don't think it's related here, lol.

Oh sweet this will be awesome with the new added Digimons. But I'll wait on it for awhile. Just like the 20th Vpets they might release a 3rd installment with unique colors.

Oh man the pressure is REAL. I've been refreshing the page for ages waiting for the pre-order to start. I'm the only guy able to get them out of all the Digimon fans in my circle... They're all counting on me oh man.

LOL D-Brigade.

Tell you what, it’s pretty cool to see ×ros Wars icons like Mad Leomon and Dark Knightmon standing shoulder to shoulder with legends like the original Beelzebumon and ancient classics like Rukamon. Hard to believe it’s been almost six years since that show ended; it’s taking its place in the halls of legend now. There will come a time when Gaiamon and shit like that are ‘historical’ digimon too ….
