Puyoyomon
Jellymon

Curimon
Gurimon
Gammamon

Pyonmon
Bosamon
Angoramon


Earlier in the day we also got one from Adventure:...

Jellymon can retract its body and be just a head??

Gammamon's art looks nice and I do like how the proportions of his arms make it look like he could work as a quadruped as well (but of course we know that the anime will have him mostly bipedal).
In an interesting reversal it seems that Gammamon references something about signals from outer space, whereas Jellymon who has been associated with aliens due to her design doesn't mention anything about it in her profile, instead fully committing just to the jellyfish influence.

Angoramon's profile points out that his ears "rotate"... if that is indeed the intended wording then that would mean that his flying ability isn't just the general ear-sailing that we saw with Digimon like Terriermon but something closer to an ear helicopter. I hope it gets animated that way. Similarly I hope Jellymon's jellyfish-only mode will appear in the anime...

But I have to say: Not really a fan of how Gurimon and Bosamon are basically just slightly rounded decapitated heads of their evolutions... it's one of the lazier design approaches to Baby II Digimon.
Puyoyomon... is at least has a bit more variation going on by having a different design for its eyes.
Puyomon really has one of the most interesting profiles for a Baby I Digimon that I've seen so far. It seems to mention that its "attack" is actually more of an really weird way of general communication and that they can combine together to increase their strength (reminds me of the Chrysalimon swarm in Tamers). Again, something that we are not very likely to see in Ghost Game itself... but it's still an interesting concept.

Eh, I completely agree. Unfortunately, Babies like that (with that I mean a simplified and rounded version of the child they have to evolve to) have been the norm for the anime since... 02? With the even more annoying consequence of Baby I being just a thematically-colored sphere that differs from Baby II just for the lack of limbs.

At least I hope the retracted version of Jellymon will be more appealing as a monster (read: less human).

it's the decapitated head thing that is exactly why Puyomon and Puyoyomon are the #1 best babies of the sets

Maybe Gammamon's wing are his head. By opening it up like Digivolving Spirits.
I'm kidding.

His wings maybe are from his two spikes in the back, maybe two of them are wings and camouflage into spikes.

Maybe there's gonna be Digimon vs. Aliens like how Kakudou vaguely thought of doing for Adventure-verse.

They really look good in the traditional artstyle. 🤗

The only thing that particularly bothers me is Angoramon's Baby 1 and 2's look practically the same aside from 2 growing an extra ear. :unsure:

OMG, official art, yes I love it, so amazing.

Baby forms are cute, Gammamon reminds me of Veemon and Hackmon, Jellymon and Angoramon looks good to.

Its one of these weird cases when i prefer the toei over the bandai artwork.
Jellymon looking even more overdesigned for a child here.
Gammamon art is so weird to me, i see what they tried to do with the shadows, wanted to make him look like an old bandai artwork, but it doesnt works for me, it just looks bad. Angoramon is the only one that looks ok to me here. The babies are okay, jelly ones are my favourites.

Kenji Watanabe I can tell.

Yeah that bothers me a bit too. I mean, his Baby I's look shouldn't have had nose to simplify it as a Baby I.

Angoramon has an attack called petit twister reminds me of Terriermon’s terrier tornado and Jellymon has electric powers.

Gammamon’s attack list I think is unfinished because I remember in the sprites he can shoot fire.

The Angoramon babies are lazy. Jellymon is about to become my new fave. I can feel it. Love the designs

I really like Jellymon's Baby forms and I'm ok with Gammamon's. But Angoramon's feel off. Besides being too similar, even for this kind of Baby design, Pyonmon looks too developed for a Baby I. It also doesn't help that both Gurimon and Bosamon are just "heads". Bosamon could have small legs, to make him a mini rabbit.

They're really emphasizing the UMA-theme with Gammamon's profile, with the whole "newly-discovered and very rare species" and the "alien signals from outer space" aspects. I'm also starting to think its name is referring to "Gamma rays".

I've been wanting a jellyfish-themed line for the longest time, so I'm happy with Jellymon and its pre-evolutions.

They also form a nice Vi-Da-Va trio.

I don't know what UMA is and the internet isn't helping
"Unidentified Mysterious Animal". It's an acronym inspired by "UFO", and it's basically the Japanese term for "cryptids". It has a connotation towards the extraterrestrial, due to the aforementioned UFO-basis.
