We're just a day until the Digimon Vital Bracelet officially goes up for pre-order (although a number of places opened early for standard models.)

For those holding out for the special version, we have a ton of images and details!


Also remember, DigiNavi is just a bit more than a day away, and will streamed, with English subtitles, with a featured subject being showing off the Vital Bracelet. Details can be found here.

vitalbraceletspecial03_december16_2020.jpg

Since the Vital Bracelet itself is identical minus the color elements, you can read about those details here.

That includes the different 'link' features of the Vital Bracelet, including detailed information about the Dim Cards (although since part of the special version is a unique Dim Card, we'll get into that later... well... not so much later...)

The Digimon Vital Bracelet version Special is exclusive to Premium Bandai. Although there is 'one' potential asterisk to that later on...



vitalbraceletspecial04_december16_2020.jpg


All of the 1st wave of Vital Bracelet's will come with the Impulse City Dim Card.



This adds the location and graphics to your Vital Bracelet, but most notably...

vitalbraceletspecial06_december16_2020.jpg
vitalbraceletspecial07_december16_2020.jpg
vitalbraceletspecial08_december16_2020.jpg

It gives you Pulsemon, the new character being introduced with the Vital Bracelet, along with the potential to unlock his evolutions! We get higher resolution art and a close look at the sprites for a few of them.


We also get a 'not quite complete' look at the evolution chart for the Impulse City Dim Card...

vitalbraceletspecial09_december16_2020.jpg


The chart shows his Baby 1, Baby 2, Child, 4 different Adult forms, and 1 each from Perfect and Ultimate. 5 more Perfecst and 3 more Ultimates are still to be revealed.


Now, Impulse City and Pulsemon will, as mentioned, be included with all 3 bracelets.


The special version is in high demand, not because it's neon green/yellow (which oddly feels like it matches Pulsemon), but because of what it comes with...

vitalbraceletspecial10_december16_2020.jpg


The Ancient Warriors Dim Card.




Like Impulse City, it includes locations and graphics for the band, but the big thing is...

vitalbraceletspecial11_december16_2020.jpg
vitalbraceletspecial12_december16_2020.jpg

It includes V-mon and various evolutions of his. They show off V-mon, XV-mon, Paildramon, and Imperialdramon (dragon mode), who are all among some of the most popular Digimon there are.

We get basic details for them,a long with looks at their new sprites in full color.



Plus...

vitalbraceletspecial15_december16_2020.jpg


A near complete evolution chart with only one Ultimate being a mystery.



And the special version also includes some 'early buy' bonus items...

vitalbraceletspecial22_december16_2020.jpg

Black Roar Dim Card trial version is the main bonus item. This Dim Card lets you raise a Botamon all the way up to BlackWarGreymon.

It also includes a Digimon Card of Pulsemon (it doesn't specify if this is a collectors card, or a promo card for the Digimon Card Game) and a bonus flyer/poster.


These bonus items will also be available to early buyers of the standard versions in stores.

Pre-orders for the Digimon Vital Bracelet version Special are open at Premium Bandai. It costs 7,260 yen and pre-orders close on February 12th. It ships in March.

Update- Pre-orders are open.

Update- Pre-orders for the version with the Black Roar Dim have stopped. The special version can still be purchased without the Black Roar Dim Card at Premium Bandai. All other details are the same

They note a number of things of interest to potential buyers:
Pre-orders for the special version may close early based on number of purchases.
Release date may be changed.
The early purchase benefits may run out, and once they do, they will not be available for buyers.
This product may be sold outside of Japan in an unspecified fashion.





You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
From Japan
Rider Proxy
Nippon-Yasan

The Bandai Premium store has also chosen to affiliate themselves/recommend a few potential shops to be used as intermediaries for non-Japanese buyers:
Buyee
From Japan (this From Japan link shows various items that they waive commission fees for.)
Samurai Buyer
DEJapan

You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the link to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded in the news article for the products are exactly what you'll need to send them.

Some of the intermediaries have a full storefront and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.

I guess this does more or less confirm each DiM will have a full evolution tree on it. I’m glad to see art for the various Pulsemon evolutions. The Ancient Warriors DiM has an odd selection with Armors being treated as Adults, Perfects, and Ultimates all in the same tree! I’m hoping the last spot that was not revealed is something new, maybe a new Ultimate for Digitamamon?

@Deep Saver Sagittarimon is a in-profile evo for Centalmon, so he has one of the strongest precedents for being treated as Perfect. And Ultimate Magnamon is basically routine by now.

using a machine translator:
Pulsemon is a Beast Man type
Bulkmon is a Dragon Man type
Boutmon is a Beast Man type
Kazuchimom is a God Man type
they are all vaccine attribute

My main complaint is why do we not have information on how this may be sold outside of Japan? It feels very unprofessional not to habe this information this soon to preorders opening. It really hinders out of country fans as I'm unsure what to do, especially as somebody who has never imported from Japan in their life.

My main compliment, I love these designs now that I can see their artwork! I did not care for Runnermon and Namakemon looked weird, Exermon looked cool but I had no clue what I was looking at. I did not expect how genuinely cool a sloth Numemon parallel can look nor was a expecting a new Bug Digimon based on what seems to be an ant! Runnermon looks a lot more attractive but it is my least favorite for now. I can't believe I'm this excited to get Namakemon on purpose some day!

Unfortunately I don't have much to say for Veemon. Its DIM looks very b the books except for the surprise Digitamamon but even though I like Digitamamon, I don't have nauthing to say about it being here other than it's surprising. I do think this is a very attractive Veemon lineup for Veemon fans, though. Very clean looking

edit: by the way I'm totally an Exermon stan, he is my favorite of this DIM so far. As an Olympos XII fan I am so happy to get another God Man, though, as the Olympos XII having other gods they might have to work with is a very pleasant theme for storytelling

Really in love with those designs!!!! Exermon is an ant:eek: Hope he continues with the ant theme on all of his evolutions. Runnermon is a nice adult for baihumon, lets see how his perfect looks and namakemon is a fking creepy boy, dont expected him looking that creepy, really surprised me, he is awesome.
Kazuchimon is Awesome too, he looks so good, Raijinmon is one of my favourite digimons and i can see this guy as a raijinmon 2.0
His head also remembers me a lot to susanoomon.

The entire evolution line of pulsemon looks so clean, the 4 adults looks like a team for a cartoon series, the strong guy, the serious and intelligent, the energic and the creepy xD. they would work awesome as a team for sure!

On the other hand i didnt liked at all the veemon chart. Only hope that the "?" spot would be a totally new digimon. Would be awesome a holydigitamamon but i think that digitamamon is a "fail" evolution that cannot evolve into ultimate.

That's one massive tongue that Slothmon has. Nice to get all their arts, though I'd like closer/more HQ of them so we can see them properly.

I wonder which of those forms is the failure evolution of Veemon. Raidramon since he's the last one? and it seems like Digitamamon is there just to be the failure evolution at the Ultimate level. Harsh. Surprised at how much Armor stuff there is, but I don't think you can complain about the levels they gave them at all. Similar to the Baby arts of Monodramon, Pulsemon's Baby form arts are super bad as well. They don't even seem like official arts. Such a contrast in quality when you see Rookie onwards.

Seeing so much of the trees like this makes me wanna see Vorvomon and Jazamons all the more... since they have a lot less evolutions than Veemon.

The mystery Mega is probably just Paladin Mode. The mystery slots of the Pen Z forever leave me disappointed and I'm expecting similar here.

The katanas pretty much confirm that Kazuchimon is indeed based on Takemikazuchi, the swordsman god of thunder.

I love Exermon's design. I already thought it looked like some sort of meditating-insect, and indeed it was.

Digitamamon feels very random for Vmon.

I like what we're seeing in the charts thus far. Now just hoping that my boy BlitzGreymon ends up in the Agumon DiM card since from what I'm reading, seems like Black Roar is gonna be a fairly linear line to BlackWarGreymon and not much else. Anyways, nice to see that Pulsemon indeed hits the basic notes, being your token Dinosaur, Beast and Insect types with Namakemon being there as the device's "Failure" Adult. Makes sense for the device's default roster to cover it's bases, even if those design tropes aren't particularly original.

The fact that I'm seeing "this product may be sold outside of Japan" at all is a good thing, but I really need more details on what exactly that entails.

That's what i was thinking but i guess they couldn't come up with another perfect to fit his line but oh well still just feels out of place.

I'm interested to see the battle system for the game hope it's engaging.

Doesn’t Kazuchimon have a gurren Lagan feel to anyone.

they are all vaccine attribute

Pulsemon’s a Beast Man type! I thought he was Mini Dragon because he looks dragonic.

Dengeki have Pulsemon's profile (bandai RTed it)


machine translation:

A Digimon that has evolved under the influence of heart rate waveform data stored in hospitals and gyms. He has a lively personality that treats everyone without discrimination. The characteristic bangs are linked to the emotions of Pulsemon, and if you are not energetic, you will get sick. He is a tricky fighter who takes advantage of his quickness and moves around to draw lightning bolts. Its Special Moves are "Electric Rush", which uses lightning speed to hit the enemy with all its might, and "Petit Impulse", which emits electricity generated in the body from its bangs. In addition, many other Digimon, such as Pulsemon, that are influenced by the vital data of others and improve or evolve their physical abilities have been discovered.

Oh damn that is nice box of varied Man types. Quite uniqueness of Pulsemon boosted like it's many things to count.

I suspected it's some kind of yoga insect but surprise! IT'S ANT DIGIMON. ALSO TIGER DIGIMON!

I didn't expect Pulsemon's evo lines are basically Tailmon/Plotmon's evo line! To include Insect and Tiger, even Thunder samurai god and a karate man plus multiple evo routes based on his physical abilities.

Whoa that sloth digimon turned out it's creepy and it does feel like it's Sloth version of Numemon.

I really hope that Exermon and Runnermon won't lose their Insect/Beast types upon evolving.

Now I really like that design of Kazuchimon because he is clearly samurai. I welcome more samurai to overpopulate over Knight digimons.
I need more god/goddess of japanese myth for Digimon to "convert" into. I wonder if this implies it's new special group?

Unlike Greco-Roman mythology, Japanese gods don't have a central pantheon. There is no such thing as a Japanese counterpart to the Twelve Olympians. At most, you have multiple generations of siblings grouped together in their own tiny separate groups.

I wonder what the mystery Ultimate on Ancient Warriors is? My head says Fighter Mode, but my heart says Holy Digitamamon...

Also, any bets on if Impact city is gonna be all new Digimon or not? I'm thinking probably not, since I don't think that's happened since... literally the original Digital Monsters; and there are some pre-existing ones that would fit really well like Footmon that it'd be a missed opportunity in my opinion to not use them.

Greco Roman mythology is unusual that way. Most polytheistic religions have a primary father and mother deities then a random smattering of children and grandparents.

Imagine the hype if it was Future Mode?

I'm not actually a huge fan of the sprite work, which is surprising because usually vpets are so good. They just seem a bit awkward.

yeah I don't expect anything new at all, I think it'll be pre-existing stuff. Would be a shame for Pulsemon to only end up with one Mega. Veemon's will be Paladin Mode I think.

Footmon surely has to be in this - and Gankoomon and PileVolcamon basically fit perfectly. Gankoomon's X form even has a Sumo Wrestling attack. So Footmon, Gankoomon, and PileVolcamon should be in this. PVmon would be more likely in Vorvomon's though I guess. (also, hes not in the DRB, so that may prove troublesome).

Imagine the hype if it was Future Mode?

But then Future Mode would be evolving from an Ultimate instead of Ulforce. This isn't using Ultra/SU/Lv7, so I doubt things like that will make it.

And still the OXII looks nothing like greek gods.
Vulcanusmon and Neptunemon have samurai designs.
Dianamon is a ninja.
Mercurymon looks like an aztec/mayan warrior.
I think the most greco-roman looking one is Junomon hysteric mode.
