The original V-Pets came out on June 26th, 1997 in Japan, and since it's the 26th in Japan... Digimon is now officially 25 years old

Digimon is currently going strong with Ghost Game running on TV, tons of products coming out: from a popular card game, to figures, to the Vital Bracelet, with plenty more expected.


In just over a week we expect a livestream with game news & info. And DigiFes is in a bit over a month, which always brings fun news and info.

Around the same time Digimon Survive comes out on the major consoles and PC.

We're also waiting for the next theatrical Digimon film.

And we've only just started to really hear about plans for the 25th anniversary of the franchise, with a special Vital Bracelet BE, a V-Pet rerelease, Digimon Frontier anniversary stuff, a museum exhibition event, it feels like a ton is happening, and we can look forward to & hope for more. And as Big Dreamer Taoka wrote in the newest MonMon Memo on the official Digimon site, 2022 will be the year of Digimon.


Lots to look forward to, and hopefully celebrate, as the 25th anniversary of the franchise begins!


Feel free to share any Digimon memories you'd like to!

Brand new 25th anniversary social art from Digimon Web! It features Agumon, Tyranomon, Numemon, & Devimon, all of whom featured in the V1 V-Pet. They're standing around and an egg is hatching on the V-Pet. A nice bit of art for the anniversary. The attached message:
Today, June 26th, Digital Monster celebrates its 25th anniversary㊗️🎊
It has been 25 years since the LCD toy Digital Monster Ver.1 was released.
Agumon, Tyranomon, Numemon, & Devimon gather & celebrate❗
Thanks for the continued support😊


Social media anniversary art they've put up in the past.

25 years! Can't believe it's been a part of my life for (nearly) that long. Here's to 25 more.

How weird, I totally felt like it was like 15th Anniversary yet it's clearly 25th. The time passing too quickly is pretty scary.

But it's pretty rare to see this chibi Devimon smiling so widely!

as somebody who was born in 1997 with an upcoming birthday too, I definitely know how much of a milestone 25 years is.
Digimon has done so much in my literal lifetime, it's insane. I'm really looking forward to this celebration and more years to come!

Maybe it's Espimon
They would promote him as the mascot, like they did with zubamon and ludomon.
I think there isnt a 25th mascot, they are using gammamon, agumon and pulsemon as their logo monsters in the last events we had.
Despite not liking most of the mascot bc of their repetitive dragon/royal knight aesthetic, its still sad to not have one. I really hope there is one hidden.

I still find it very weird. It could be perfect time to introduce a new 25th Anniversary Digimon like Zubamon who blabs nonsense of "Twenty".

We didn't get Hackmon until November back during the 15th anniversary, so we still might get something.

So there's hope. The mascot could be the new anime main character's partner.

Hooray! 25 years. Let's hope we get a new Mon for this. Since the first game. The Anime is a different date. Glad for it to still be here.
