Third recent set to have Guilmon, with EX2, BT12, and now this. Yawn

Why do they continue to pretend BlackGuilmon doesn't exist

Not using orange Growlmon makes me think MedivelGallantmon will miss out

From the smaller image, it kind of looked like Blackgrowmon had a blade on its nose.

Which, looking at the image as a whole, is just the space between its head and that building in the background, but still.

Because it basically doesn't, it only exists as a recolor in a fighting game.

He's not your standard fighting game recolor. He was a separate character with his own mini profile and unique attack techniques.
Despite all that, I'm glad they don't acknowledge his existence since Renamon and Terriermon don't have a black Child-level equivalent, just to make them uniform.

Well, Lopmon, sort of, but it doesn't have a literal Black Terriermon yeah.

Neither do a lot of other Digimon with black recolors at higher levels - V-mon and Wormmon don't have one while XV-mon, V-dramon, Imperialdramon, and Stingmon do, Gaomon doesn't but Gaogamon and Machgaogamon do... hell, by standard definition Renamon's normal evolutions don't even really have a black recolor, as while Youkomon and Doumon are slightly darker than Kyubimon and Taomon, it's not to any significant degree, and Kuzuhamon's positioned as something entirely different.

That's exactly my point, no other Child level Digimon has a "Black" subspecies other than Agumon/Gabumon which is fair because they're the OG Digimon. But Guilmon isn't, so he shouldn't get one and it should stay that way.
Kuzuhamon line is not "slightly darker", they're literally purple, the same color as ChaosDukemon. You can see in ChaosDukemon's card where the trio is together, so they're basically in the same category.

Shoutmon, Pawnchessmon, and Toyagumon as well, though they all have their own reasons. Elecmon also has a purple version if you're counting purple as black although it's significantly more of an OG Digimon than Gabumon is.

(One could also technically argue 2006 Falcomon is a Black Recolor as well I suppose. Wikimon does have a redirect on Falcomon (Black) that leads to it, so there is that)

I mean it's a weird post when black Guilmon literally exists. Only thing I can think of is it's due to RA2 being made by a western studio and its they *cant* use it again

If we do get a black guilmon card, I feel like it will still go the black agumon route and just be called guilmon.

I feel weird about Black Guilmon. I see the black Guilmon evolutions as his true evolutions if he didn't have a good tamer raising him to go against his fate as a god of destruction and the red evolutions showing that you're succeeding as a tamer. I mostly see it this way because Gallantmon's whole point is that it's rebelling against its nature to bring good into the world and could slip into a Megidramon/Chaos Gallantmon if not careful.
I guess Black Guilmon could exist as it succumbing to its destructive fate at the rookie level but it does make normal Guilmon seem trivial as a result if that makes any sense?


Guilmon
Rookie | Virus | Reptile
[Digivolve: 0:From [Gigimon]]
[When Played] If there is a combined total of 20 or more cards in both players' trash, this Digimon gains <Rush> for the turn.

BlackGrowlmon
Champion | Virus | Dark Dragon
[Digivolve: 2 from Lv. 3 with [Guilmon] in its name]
[When Digivolving] Trash 2 cards from the top of both players' decks. Then, you may return 1 [Guilmon] or 1 card with [Growlmon] or [Dukemon] in its name from your trash to your hand.
-
Inherited Effect: [When Deleted] You may return 1 [Guilmon] or 1 card with [Growlmon] or [Dukemon] in its name from your trash to your hand.

They could retcon Black Guilmon as Guilmon X Antibody back then. The viral nature of Guilmon dominates and he becomes "mini" Black Growmon.

To be fair the black variants of xv-mon, v-dramon and stingmon are probably even more "lost" than black guilmon.

all three are from one-off cards just named "XV-Mon", "V-Dramon" and "Stingmon" with nothing stating they are different species, just different attributes. Technically this should be like that time Gabumon was vaccine on St-453

A lot of the different color versions didn't get different names in the old card game, even ones in the DRB. This isn't that odd, though, as that's also the case with the current card game.
if they're in the DRB or used in more than one place then they're not more equal to me in comparison than vaccine Gabumon

Imperialdramon: Fighter Mode (Black) wasn't used elsewhere until this card game either.
