The new Digimon Journal has gone up, and we get a new Digimon Highlights!

Each Digimon highlights features 3 Digimon and includes:
Various art displayed at a decent resolution (not amazing, but decent), including some art never before seen clean or at good resolutions before.
A text profile, giving information on appearances and the character.
A list of Main Appearances
Showing off a card from the Card Game featuring them.
A link to their reference book entry.
At the end of the Journal, each Digimon gets a high resolution zoom in of some of their art, framed for use as an avatar whether square or circle.



The translations for these at a glance are decent, not quite as choppy as some of Digimon Profile was, although there are mixes of terminology.
For our coverage of these, we'll paste in text information as is, with some cleanup, along with the various art.


Digimon Journal 4 features Digimon Highlights: ULForceV-dramon, Ragnamon, and Angoramon

ULForceV-dramon

This Holy Knight Digimon was first included in Digimon Pendulum Progress 1.0, which was released in 2002.

The Veedramon-line Perfect level AeroV-dramon appeared in 1999’s Digimon Pendulum 4.0 Wind Guardians, but none had taken up the V-dramon moniker for the next three years when this long-awaited Royal Knight Digimon made its appearance.

ULForceV-dramon was also the final evolution for the V-dramon Zeromaru, main Digimon of the Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01 manga published in V Jump.

In his AeroV-dramon form, Zeromaru was annihilated by the last boss Arkadimon’s attack, only for the almighty power known as the ULForce to revive it in this evolved form. From there, the power of a DigiMental allowed it to achieve its Super Ultimate Future Mode form and defeat Arkadimon.

ULForceV-dramon also appears in the Digimon Xros Wars manga in the same magazine, enthralling readers with its deeds.

It also put in the work in the Nintendo 3DS game Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode, where it acted as partner Digimon to Rina Shinomiya.

Main Appearances
Digimon Pendulum Progress 1.0
Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01
Digimon Xros Wars ( manga)
Digimon Data Squad
Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode
Digimon Pendulum Ver. 20th Original Silver Blue

Ragnamon

An Ultimate Digimon that appeared as the last boss in the PlayStation game Digimon World 3. In this title, Lord Megadeath succeeds in creating the strongest Digimon Snatchmon, which then merged with the military satellite Gunslinger to evolve into this form.

Ragnamon attempts to destroy all life on Earth before merging with the planet. Outer space is the battleground, as a hero fights to save the world. The final fight that ensues is unprecedented even in the history of Digimon.

The Child-level Bemmon has several bodies, and uses its unique Fusionize ability to fuse with other Digimon and power up. In the Digimon Card Game, this trait was represented with an effect allowing you to put 50 of them in your deck, as opposed to the usual four-card limit for the same card.

Main Appearances
Digimon World 3

Angoramon

The Beast Digimon partner to heroine Ruli Tsukiyono in the TV anime Digimon Ghost Game. Angoramon was drawn to Ruli’s piano playing, and watched her performance as a shade. A Dracumon aiming for Ruli acts as the catalyst to materialize it in the human world.

Despite being a Child, it boasts a huge, comforting form, and is often the target of hugs from other characters.

Angoramon also demonstrates a cultural aptitude beyond music, such as when it teaches Ruli how to use a camera, or drafts proverbial-like poems to cap off successfully solved cases.

It evolves into Adult-level SymbareAngoramon and Perfect-level Lamortmon, which makes it clear that this is a Digimon with much more in store.

Main Appearances
Digimon Ghost Game



And the avatars for them...

A nice selection of Digimon with different relevance throughout the history of the franchise.

Future Mode was used to defeat Arkadimon? But it was used to defeat Daemon Ultra and base Ulforce defeated Arkadimon.
Is this a retcon and Daemon Ultra doesn't exists now?

Finally Ragnamon with larger image!!!

Oh so Lord Megadeath got mentioned! Meaning he won't be digimon'ized too bad but glad to know he got mentioned here.
So the next thing is NeoCrimson... And Attribute Guardians who knows how many years it takes to introduce them?

Hmm UlforceV-dramon Future Mode defeating Arkadimon? Wait I only remembered Demon suddenly parasited Arkadimon and triggered UlforceV-dramon's evo to his Future Mode? Or they actually misremembered?

They mentioned Future Mode in the Digimon Start Guide magazine now in this. Third time's charm, Bandai? We see him in New Century or DRB?

The Japanese text seems to call Arkadimon the Last Boss, which sure doesn't sound right.

I guess in a sense, Arkadimon was part of the last boss. Incidentally, when the V-Tamer creative duo were interviewed around the release of Hacker's Memory, they talked about Arkadimon Super Ultimate as being a "true last boss", without any mention of Demon (granted, they were talking about Super Ultimate as a level in general).

So far this series has mentioned like 3 Digimon that's not in the DRB yet they never add them. That doesn't seem very promising.
ShoutmonX4S, Ulforce Future Mode...... who's the 3rd one? Xros Wars Clockmon?

Arkadimon. Technically they're talking about the Super Ultimate, but linked the Child.

Oh, right. Almost forgot that most of the Arkadimon line still isn't in, despite being a pretty big deal for its return in Hacker's Memory only a few years back.

It indicates that the writers haven't read V-Tamers recently, more likely.

This would have been a good opportunity to add Arkadimon's other forms and Ulforce V-dramon Future Mode to the reference book. But nice to see them mentioned though...

Still a positive step for the V-Tamer digimon. Would be nice to see all of them added to the reference book and more appearances in the franchise.

Interesting choices but hey, Ragnamon. Who would have remembered that one. This is real nice and fun.
