Bulcomon? What does that mean...?

I wonder if this line is countermeasure to Vobomon's line or not.

Anyone have any idea what Bulcomon's name might be derived from? The Chinese name seems to mean Blue Dragon (mon), while the Adult and Perfect forms are Pale Dragon (mon) and Crystal Dragon (mon) respectively. So maybe for "Bulcomon" they meant Blucomon, but I have no idea where they got the "co" part from. I suppose it might be from "cold," though that wouldn't be derived from the Chinese name, and we still don't know for sure that he's icy.
probably the "co" was derived from "draconic", also 碧龙 means jade dragon, most likely...

Doesn't look particularly much like jade to me. It is blue, however, which 碧 can mean when used as an adjective.

Do we have a picture of the protagonists? I need it for my collection.

Paledramon is going to make it hard to differentiate from Paildramon in spoken conversation. I know Paildramon should really be Piledramon, but the incorrect name is so accepted that I doubt many people will care.

They don't look anything like a Digimon to me. I can't look at it and think "Digimon"

I don't know. Most fans wouldn't pronounce them the same way, I think. As I recall, the English dub pronounced Paildramon as Pie-eel-dramon.

I've consumed so much Japanese media my first attempt at a pronunciation was "Pah-Lay-Dramon."

I think Paledramon looks nice, but the other two just have an "off-ness" to them. It'd be nice if they got key art from Watanabe or another artist, as opposed to snapshots of a projection of 3D models.

I can't read the text super clearly so I won't do a full translation now, but some stuff:

Paledramon
- can fly at high speed; regular climate/weather changes don't really affect it
- however, when it faces off against digimon like meramon, its body shrinks and its power weakens, making it akin to a child level (?) in combat prowess
- has a strong sense of camaraderie. if a comrade it has battled together with lands up in danger, it will drop everything to help.
- has an attack where it spews freezing breath, and an attack where it spreads its wings in mid-air and summons a blizzard.

CrysPaledramon
- only very few Paledramon manage to evolve into CrysPaledramon
- freezes its body solid to form armour
- the icicles on its back (wings?) won't melt even under high temperature
- spews cold air from its cannon ports
- can fly at high speed even in stormy weather

I had no idea, I always pronounced Paildramon like you would say Paledramon.

So:

碧龙兽(Bulcomon) = Blue Dragon Beast
苍龙兽 (Paledramon) = Gray Dragon Beast
晶龙兽 (Cryspaledramon) = Crystal Dragon Beast

The meaning of their Romanized names aren't so far from their Chinese counterpart.

NO way? This Bulcomon? With that chinese design like that?! So he is going to get a new jogress soon? Or new Vortrex Warrior?

Added an updated version of the trailer that shows Bulcomon properly and not in silhouette.

He has always been a real Digimon, as Encounters is an official game regardless of being Chinese-only. Sistermon Ciel is a region-specific Digimon too (specifically a Western censored variant), but she is also in the Pendulum 20th.

Just noticed that with this, there's an elemental trio with Vorvomon, Erismon, and Bulcomon. Neat that the mobile games seemed to bring in a new big line, each.
