It's always been fun to see more of this...


We have a few updates for Digimon Encounters, the Chinese mobile game.


First up, a new trailer that features Bulcomon and his evolutions. Minus Bulcomon himself, this is the first time we've gotten a clean look at his evolutions.

And of course, his last evolution is still a mystery, but we have a better look at the silhouette now.

There are various details listed for Bulcomon's forms. Update- Thanks to garm for translations of the details!

Bulcomon:
A Small Dragon Digimon that resides in areas isolated from the outside world by ice. Through its training in the cold, harsh lands, it is able to lift objects heavier than itself with ease. However, because its body is made mainly out of ice, its body will shrink and its power will weaken when it comes into contact with heat. Because they are usually a minority species where they live, they will tend to form very strong bonds even with Digimon of different species that they encounter. It is especially close to Gabumon. Its Signature Move is spitting countless icicles from its mouth (Power-tipped Ice Arrows). Its Special Move is attacking continuously with the claws on both hands (Ice-sealing Thrashing).
Paledramon:
The evolved form of Bulcomon. It can freely manipulate and use its large wings of ice to fly at high speed, even in foul weather. Changes in climate resulting in temperature differences usually do not have much effect on Paledramon. However, when facing Digimon such as Meramon, its body will start melting and shrinking just like its Child form, causing it to weaken. It cares very greatly for its comrades; if a comrade it has fought together with finds themselves in trouble, it will drop everything to rush to their aid. Its Signature Move is spewing out its "Congelation Breath", which freezes foes solid. Its Special Move is spreading its wings from high up in the air and summoning an endless blizzard (Endless Frost).
CrysPaledramon:
Only a select few Paledramon are able to evolve into Crys Paledramon. It is capable of freezing its entire body, forming armour that greatly raises its defensive and offensive power. Thanks to the large icicles mounted on its wings, it is not affected even by high temperatures. Not only that, the cold air it blasts from the icicle nozzles can be used to control air currents, allowing Crys Paledramon to maintain high-speed flight even during snowstorms. Its Signature Move is an omnidirectional attack where it fires all of the icicles on its wings at the enemy (Ice Blade Floating Cannon). Its Special Move is amassing a large amount of frost in an instant, forming a miniature iceberg which it then hurls at the enemy (Paradise Cryosol).



On top of that, the Encounters site has put up profiles for a number of popular Digimon. These include some gameplay details, profile info, along with listing their actors as 'Stay Tuned', cluing in that a number of popular characters will be voiced.


With these profiles (and other info) they include clean renders of these characters (Well, all but one are clean.) These appear to use pre-existing CGI models (as we've seen in use for Encounters before), touched up with textures for promotional use (and in a few cases drawn art to touch them up further, possibly to turn them into sprites for game use.)









We've mirrored these at the gallery.


Some nice Encounters updates. It's currently on Android in China, and launching in iOS later this month.

It does make me wonder on if they will be using those, or Cyber Sleuth models - though CS does seem likely based on small parts of that trailer.

The way the hidden Mega moves, no longer seems like a "female" type to me, as it doesnt seem like a skirt any more. Shame, it seemed like a magical girl lol. seems more like a cape now, so I guess it'll look similar to the Royal Knights like they always do lol. I actually quite like seeing the models moving around, it makes them look a lot better than a standard image.

As for the other models they've posted, they make me happy. I enjoy that we have HQ models (renders, I suppose) of all those Digimons. Annoyed they didn't include their little icy dragons. One day.

If only they'd revealed the mega tho!

The profiles on their website seem to be copy pasted DRB profiles, so I suppose its nothing too interesting on that front.

But the ones with voice actors should be interesting, I guess they'll be the main characters in a story mode.

In most cases these look to be CS renders (which they've been showing off since they announced the game), but touched up with tweaks (in most cases I'd say drawn on) likely to be used as profile artwork in game.

I hope they're more open to using the missing Next Order and Hacker's memory models that Links and ReArise don't seem to be wanting to use, though it feels unlikely.

If they just do what Links is doing, making random megas (mostly x forms), it'll at least mean they will have other models for copy pasting in the future.

unless of course the CS models get ditched... which they probably should tbh. The base ones unedited are starting to show their age IMO.

and the angemon model here is the interesting one because it'll be interesting to see how it appears in game, because the model in all the games using the CS models is purple, but the one they has posted here is blue, so they eitehr edited for the art work, ninja editing the model itself for encounters or some of the models have been remade for the game etc

Seeing Blucomon and co. in motion, they all look really nice! I especially like Cryspaledramon, those icy gauntlets look wicked.

Bulcomon and it’s evolutions are quickly becoming some of my new favorite Digimon. CrysPaledramon looks so much better in these higher res images. And yay for more ice-themed Digimon!

Eh, not really digging CrysPaledramon. It's thankfully not overdone like a lot of others, but with the ice-based anatomy it feels like they could have gone in a less buff direction.

More new images on that final form. Surprised it doesn't look like an ice sorceress... Shame, she could be "Vortrex Warrior".

I guess that Ultimate form is no different from... Apollomon from Flaremon in similar designs of evolution line. lol

Something I noticed which may make things a little more interesting is that they seem to have changed up the evolution lines, even when theyre clearly just gonna reuse the CS roster. It showed Botamon -> Nyaromon but before this in CS/HM/Links, it was Punimon -> Nyaromon. Whilst it could be a one off, it's also something that could mean the evolution lines have been flipped around and such

The new artwork looks nice. Hopefully they show off more Digimon in that style.

Not really new info but thanks to the high-res video I can finally transcribe the profiles properly:

Bulcomon:
栖息在被冰隔绝的大地上的小龙型数码宝贝
因在极寒之地锻炼,能轻而易举地举起比自己重的物体。但是因为身体大部分由冰组成所以遇热身体会变细小,力量也随之下降
因大多数种族都在稀有之地生存,所以即使遇到不同种族的数码宝贝,也会有很强的同伴意识。尤其和加布兽关系极好。 普通技是从嘴里吐出无数个冰锥的「威锋冰箭」。必杀技是用双爪连续攻击的「冰封连击」。
A Small Dragon Digimon that resides in areas isolated from the outside world by ice. Through its training in the cold, harsh lands, it is able to lift objects heavier than itself with ease. However, because its body is made mainly out of ice, its body will shrink and its power will weaken when it comes into contact with heat. Because they are usually a minority species where they live, they will tend to form very strong bonds even with Digimon of different species that they encounter. It is especially close to Gabumon. Its Signature Move is spitting countless icicles from its mouth (Power-tipped Ice Arrows). Its Special Move is attacking continuously with the claws on both hands (Ice-sealing Thrashing).

Paledramon:
碧龙兽进化而成。巨大的冰翼即使是在恶劣天气也能操纵自如,高速飞行
一般环境变化导致的气温改变对身体并无多大影响,但如果碰到火焰兽这样的敌人,会同成长期一样,身体融化变小,力量下降。
同伴意识十分强烈,一同作战的同伴如果身陷险境,会不顾一切营救。
普通技是吐出可以冷冻敌人的「凝结吐息」。必杀技是自身可以站在高空展开双翼召唤无尽暴风雪的「霜雪漫天」。
The evolved form of Bulcomon. It can freely manipulate and use its large wings of ice to fly at high speed, even in foul weather.

Cryspaledramon:
苍龙兽之中,只有极少数可以进化成为晶龙兽。能够冷冻全身使之化为盔甲,大幅度提高防御力和攻击力。 羽翼上的大型冰柱可以保持自己在任何高温下不受影响。另外,从喷射口射出的冷气能够操纵气流,也可保持在暴风雪中的高速飞行。 普通技是释放出羽翼上的全部冰柱向敌人展开全方位打击的「冰刃浮游炮」。必杀技是瞬间将大量寒冰聚集成小型冰山,投掷向敌人的「极乐冻土」。
