I disagree with that conclusion.The movie literally contradicted itself with its own premise: if kids make powerful batteries because of the unlimited potential they have the system should work like Young Wizards: you start out as a god and then progressively get weaker as you age. Instead they literally have Menoa point out that Digimon evolve more with character growth. By her own logic, Digimon partners should start out at Ultimate level for a young child and shrink down to Baby 2 or whatever over time.
As for Meicoomon, all they have to do to get her back is kill Apocalymon again, who I assume was also reborn like the Dark Masters. Just assume Omegamon killed Him offscreen without breaking a sweat and Meicoomon is reborn.
The movie was pretty anyways, even if like Tri it hadto retcon a shit ton of established universe stuff to even work. It also, again makes Homeostasis into an even bigger monster than Yggdrasil. If the movie ended with Agumon and Gabumon killing Honeostasis 7D6 it might have worked, narratively speaking. It kills me that thing is allowed to live in the narrative.
Aliens using children as living disposable batteries/chip soldiers that are then discarded is literally the motivation of villains in adult anime (Madoka, Evangelion, Bokurano) or even intelligent western kids shows like Steven Universe, and it’s treated far too cavalierly in stuff aimed at kids.
Setting up Homeostasis as an abusive stage mom that uses human children for its own ends may not be what they intended but that’s certainly the conclusion I came to from tri and Kizuna.
In tri., the Digidestined, themselves, eventually agreed with Homeostasis that killing Meicoomon was necessary.
As for Kizuna, it's not clear whether Homeostasis is behind the end of the partnerships or whether that's a natural element of the Digital World beyond her control.
