Another Pendulum update!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

In the newest weekly update Bandai reveals some of the new Digimon being added to the Pendulum 20th!


The Silver Blue Pendulum 20th includes the Digimon from the Pendulum Zero, which was known for having fantastic heroic Digimon, labeled as 'Virus Busters.'


When the new Pendulum's were first detailed they teased that they would be adding a number of new Digimon to the Virus Busters/Zero lineup.


And it's a pretty fantastic lineup...

First up is Seraphimon and Ophanimon!

Among the more obvious choices to add to Virus Busters, Seraphimon and Ophanimon add more angels to the mix.

On top of that we have Dukemon!

While he's a virus type himself, Dukemon is pretty well known as a heroic Digimon. Plus he was one of the ones they showed us they'd be adding previously, so he isn't a huge surprise.

Next up is BushiAgumon! They've previously teased him without confirming he'd be in it, but now we know for sure he will!

BushiAgumon is one of the 'other' Agumon, who first appeared in the DigiWindow (basically a Savers equivalent to the Digimon Analyzer or D-Terminal) over a decade ago but has never been raiseable in a V-Pet before!



And last but not least is certainly a fun reveal...

Arresterdramon!

The evolved form of Gumdramon from Hunters! Arresterdramon has never appeared in a Digimon LCD product before.




Dukemon, BushiAgumon, and Gumdramon can only be raised if certain conditions are met.


They also mention that while they've shown 5 new Digimon being added to the Virus Busters/Zero lineup, there will be 10 more on top of these 5. They tease about if the Royal Knights will show up.


While they don't reveal/detail them here, the Pendulum 20th details had previously shown MegaloGrowmon and RizeGreymon as being added to Virus Busters... so, 8 left?



Next week will be a preview of the Nightmare Warriors being added to the Silver Black model 20th Pendulum.



If you are interested in getting the 20th Anniversary Pendulum you can find a ton of details, including how to pre-order, here.

An "official" line of BushiAgumon → Gaioumon is the dream.

Arresterdramon is pretty awesome, glad to see it included in something again.

Arresterdramon is certainly a nice surprise!

Just from this update I'm already mindblown at how many Digimon are going to be in this.

ooh! early news this week!~
Seraphimon confirmed for sure, I hope the rest of Survive and revive character will also be added!

I wonder if it is safe to assume that we will get guilmon, growlmon, geogreymon, shinegreymon and Gumdramon
also, do you guys think the pendulum will have new 15 additional for each group? or just virus buster and nightmare soldier group?

I love seeing newer Digimon mixed in with the classics! Imagine how great it would be if we got an artbook for the pendulums? I can't wait to see the new Nightmare Soldiers.

Wow, this has a great lineup, even Arresterdramon! Pendulum was always really intriguing and attractive to me cause I only ever got one of them and this release is looking to be a dream come true! I'm actually really excited for this :DD Spadamon line would be the perfect icing to this cake :3

While it would be nice to get new Digimon in all of the Pendulums, I won’t be surprised if it’s just Nightmare Soldiers and Virus Busters. Looks like they’re throwing all the Royal Knights and main character partners into the latter, so I don’t expect anything too interesting on that side from my perspective. It will be good to see Arresterdramon and any other Xros Digimon in normal evolution lines, if they go that route. I can see them just doing Gumdramon to Arresterdramon, with no branches.

Preordered both of them (finally a chibi UFVdramon!).
I'd really like to see some of other Royal Knights like LordKnightmon (would be cool raising one), Dynasmon, Duftmon, Magnamon and others like Arkadimon Ultimate (would be -!awesome!-), Chaosmon and Susanoomon would be great as new Jogress , and other cool mons like ZeedMillenumon, Galactimon and Demon Lords. Those would be my dream pendulum line up... and would be great if you could have maybe quest, shop and items and other foods and actions but that is never going to happen lol

It looks like we have the full lineup of the new digimon available for virus busters: https://twitter.com/bandai_digimon/status/960713625966059520

botamon, koromon, bushiagumon, guilmon, growmon, arresterdramon, reppamon, mambomon, rizegreymon, megalogrowmon, beowolfmon, dukemon, and duftmon.. all from a single special digitama to be unlocked i suppose.

it's Interesting that the line branched to Duftmon evolution line.
I assume mambomon is like the numemon of this egg.

so Arresterdramon is just a champion level,huh

*crosses fingers* C'mon, Impmon for the Nightmare Soldiers bonus Child-level. Renamon would also be acceptable. Also interesting that Seraphimon and Ophanimon are added to the base VB DigiTama while the 13 other bonus "Virus Buster" Digimon are basically in a fourth bonus DigiTama. Too bad ol' Gummy didn't make it in as a Child-stage for the bonus egg, considering his "evolution family" just consists of two members.
