Took me a while to realize that yellow thing isn't its lower jaw and it actually has a graboid-style mouth. SO cool. Also we finally have a proper carnivorous plant Digimon! No, Vegimon doesn't count!

The art style of Hydramon reminds me a bit of the art style of Spectrodes, like a lot.

I'm glad its profile is all about it being a monstrous force of nature. A truly terrific design, standing on its own. Amazing.

Some statistics:
- Hydramon is the 75th entry for the Reference Book this year.
- This brings us on an average of roughly 2,3 entries/Digimon a week.
- It has been 27 days (almost 4 weeks) since the last update/entry, marking the longest gap between the updates of this year. The second longest gap this year was 14 days (which occured 4 times).
- August is usually on the low end of updates/entries, compared to other years.
- This is the 3rd time this year when an update happened on a tuesday. The other times it gave us Komondomon (through the Anime) and Shroudmon (Vital Bracelet, also sharing the 'unknown unlockable' boss-motif with Hydramon).
- The other moments of updates have been on mondays (6 times, with a total of 12 entries, mostly for Digimon introduced or featured in the Anime), wednesdays (7 times, with a total of 21 entries) and fridays (13 times, with a total of 39 entries).

So, what are the patterns? What can we expect? It's obviously hard to pinpoint, but here are some factors which might come into play:
- August hasn't come to an end yet, and there will be a Digimon Profile update on next week's wednesday which might (or might not) bring us something new.
- The Adventure series will be wrapping up somewhere in september, possibly giving us a new (antagonist) design or two. This presumably means no Anime-related update for at least a few weeks.
- There's a big chance the upcoming Dim-card (Dynasty of the Evil) won't feature any new design, as there are a lot of options for this particular stand-alone Dim-card already.
- We probably won't get Ghost Game (Anime + Vital Bracelet) related updates until it has launched somewhere around october.
- This presumably leaves us with updates consisting of 'legacy'-Digimon for at least a few weeks, if we're lucky and updates actually happen.
- Further updates this same week could be possible, as this happened after the other two tuesdays, as well. Komondomon was followed by an update on the friday afterwards consisting of Namakemon, Runnermon, Exermon and Bulkmon (all Vital Bracelet related), while Shroudmon was followed by an update on the friday afterwards consisting of Great King Scumon (contest-related 'legacy'-Digimon).
- An update two days in a row is a rarity not seen this year yet, so this pretty much disqualifies tomorrow (wednesday). It only happened like 2-3 times the last decade or so.
- October's V-jump magazine might hold a surprise (or not), for the franchise as a whole, and/or the Vital Bracelet, or nothing. We'll know in a day or 2-3.

My personal guess? Maybe an update this friday and next week on either wednesday or friday, consisting of these 'legacy'-Digimon.

Coming friday is our last hope for another august-entry, it seems. Yikes. I hope they speed things up again, june/july were great.

EDIT: Nothing then. This is odd; Only one update/entry this whole month. It would be a shame if september continues this trend by only releasing a profile for Negamon. There are still legacy-Digimon left. I wonder what the reason could be.

I'm guessing whoever does the reference book work at Bandai is busy making profiles for the Ghost Game digimon.

To be fair, this is pretty consistent with August and September being dry spells for DRB update releases.

Like the last time we got a sizable updates either month was 2019 and that was a large update at the end of each month consisting of X-Antibody variants to tie into the Pendulum X's upcoming release while last year we only got Gazimon X, Betamon X and the Eyesmon across both months.

That's possible, but I doubt it. Quite a few of the legacy-profiles could simply be copied from Digimon Life, for example. September might give us a good indicator. @Chimera-gui 's statement could also ring true.

I do think we're going see at least one update for September since we do still have a backlog of Digimon besides Negamon that still need to be added.

I've been wondering the same for Knightmon. Knightmon has been in the reference book since 2007 so like ??

In both cases there's really nothing to actually translate. Besides a difference in whitespace the DRB profile of Dobermon X is identical to his profile in Digimon Collectors which is already translated on the Page.
The same is true for Knightmon, his DRB profile was never translated because it's the same as his already translated Digimon life profile... until it was updated at some point, but they literally only changed a single letter, for all I know it could just a correction of some typo or grammar.

so "Sorry, but Knightmon's profile hasn't been translated yet." isn't actually true? Why not just copy and paste it under the reference book entry and write for the Digimon Life description that it matches the reference book?

Even if the difference is very slight, it is still technically a difference in profiles. It would be a lie to say that it matches.

Ultimately, it's a low-priority issue. Since there's still a translated profile on the wiki either way, why does it matter?

That's something you should take to Wikimon itself by asking on the talk page or discord rather than here. The profiles are supposed to be translated just no one got round to it for their new ones.

Yeah, there are like 30-35 Digimon which are quite the low-hanging fruit, with portrayals in more than one form of (recent) media (a combination of TCG, anime and/or videogames). These Digimon should really be added sooner rather than later, we've waited long enough ;)

- Sunmon and Moonmon;
- Dokunemon and Modoki Betamon;
- The rest of the Arkadimon-line;
- The Sistermon Awaken forms;
- Black Galgomon, Black Rapidmon, Red V-dramon, Kyubimon (Silver) and Taomon (Silver);
- Pile Volcamon;
- Raijinmon and Raidenmon;

- The rest of the Olympus XII, their left-over forms and affiliated Digimon: Bacchusmon, Ceresmon (+Medium), Junomon (+Hysteric Mode), Jupitermon Wrath Mode and Plutomon;
- Omegamon Zwart (Defeat);
- Some left-over Shoutmon variants.

It will get interesting afterwards; Will they add obscure Digimon like Blikmon, or King Whamon? Or are such Digimon doomed in semi-canonicity and/or obscureness? Or obtainable Digimon exclusive to some of the videogames, like the Chronomon-line? I will personally be overjoyed if that particular family gets added.

This year quite a few very interesting and unexpected profiles got added: Yoxto!Yoxto!mon, Atamadekachimon, Minidekachimon, Kodugumon, Trailmon, Great King Scumon, Burgamon (Adult) and Burpmon, so I have good hopes for the rest. The question is; How long will it take, and how much space will the upcoming anime take in the form of new entries? Ghost Game might use a lot of older Digimon in its episodes, or be the second Xros Wars with lots and lots of new designs. We've already seen Baby I and Baby II forms of Gammamon, so the series might be a bit more 'traditional' on the Digivolution part (I hope this is the case). But will this leave space for these legacy-Digimon I mentioned earlier? The low-hanging fruit, and the more obscure ones? It will be interesting to see.

Digimon's whole philosophy in recent years seems to have been "We've got a ton of old shit, why not just make use of that?" Still, while new debuts have been far less prevalent than they've been up until Xros Wars, we can still end up with things like the Impulse City DIM card being nothing but new Digimon, so it wouldn't be out of the question for Ghost Game to go a similar route. At the very least, they don't seem to be going the Savers route and having every Partner's BabyI form just be a pre-established Digimon.
