I have a theory about this! Dorugamon, DoruGreymon, and DoruGoramon were originally meant to be “non canon” Digimon meant to conceal Dorumon’s true evolutionary line of Raptordramon-Grademon-Alphamon which they had intended to hold back for the third Pendulum X.ever since I first read this as a kid I never understood it. What does it mean it's imaginary? It clearly exist? And what makes an imaginary digimon different from a normal digimon enough to even mention it?Ouryumon's reference book profile said:Ouryumon is an imaginary Digimon born from the "Daydream of a Digicore". It is a form that had even the Digicore's own creativity released through the Interface on its brow, and evolved.
The Dorugamon line was thus meant to buy time and build interest before they revealed Dorumon was the leader of the Royal Knights all along and was intended to be simply a dream of Dorumon from x1.
However, somewhere along the way plans changed and the Alphamon line was included in Pen1 anyways.
They kept the profile without remembering the meaning of it and copy pasted bits of it into Ouryuumon’s profile because the two were related.
This also explains the weirdness of Pendulum X 1.5. Originally the base pendulum would’ve shipped with the DeathXDorugamon line (representing DeathXMon growing in Dorumon) with Raptordramon being the bonus prize giving players a glimpse of the future in 1.5! Then they were swapped.
Mutant specimens (or evolutions, in this case) are more likely to be found in large swarms. Not because there's a higher percentage, but because of sheer quantity (though apparently large populations also tend to have higher mutation rates). If a mutation occurs in 1 in every 100 specimens; a swarm of 1,000 will probably have at least a couple mutants, while a group of only 10 might not have a single mutant. In the case of locusts/grasshoppers, swarming also results in actual differences in morphology and development.I really have no idea what the kunemon outbreak blurbs are about. I guess I was previously interupting the Kunemon as being like locusts with these armor digimon coming in to control the outbreaks but I'm realizing the armors could also be interpreted as evolving from these caterpillars as Mothmon and Butterflamon are a moth and butterfly. I'm not sure why Honeybeemon or Flybeemon would be included in the outbreak story, though, as honeybees and dragonflies don't come from caterpillars.
I really feel like I need more context from the reference book to understand the reference
Also, bees (i.e. Flymon, Honeybeemon) develop from larvae, which is what Kunemon is. Flybeemon is also a dragonfly-bee hybrid, not just a dragonfly (dragonflies also have a larval stage too).
This. Kunemon was intended to be the Eevee of Insect Digimon. Something people forgot after Flymon.
