Another Pendulum update!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

In the newest weekly update Bandai does an overview of the various Digimon you'll be able to get in the 20th Pendulums. They also preview the packaging.


The packaging for the Silver Black Pendulum is based on the original Pendulum packaging, which also included Triceramon on the box for the original 1.0 Nature Spirits release.

The Silver Black 20th Pendulum includes:
1.x Nature Spirits- Digimon that inhabit the plains and rivers.
3.x Nightmare Soldiers- Demonic Warriors with mysterious data that can't be analyzed.
5.x Metal Empire- Digimon that are machines and cyborgs.


Nature Spirits they went over the packaging as mentioned above.
Nightmare Soldiers they mention some of the jogresses are fun and there are a few popular characters from Digimon Adventure here.
Metal Empire they mention how cute ToyAgumon is and how Mugendramon is a 100% metal and super cool.

They finish off Silver Black by going over some of the special eggs:
New Nightmare Soldiers- Belphemon and DarkKnightmon are among the Digimon you can get with this special egg.
Terriermon- This well known twin Digimon has his evolution path from Digimon Tamers.
Vorvomon- This Digimon is from the mobile game Digimon Links.
Meicoomon- She appears in the series Digimon Adventure tri.








Onto Silver Blue!

The packaging for Silver Blue uses Rukamon, featuring the same art originally used on the 2.0 Deep Savers Pendulum.

The Silver Blue 20th Pendulum includes:
2.x Deep Savers- Digimon that inhabit the net ocean.
4.x Wind Guardians- Bird and planet Digimon.
ZERO Virus Busters- Digimon with a holy intention.


Deep Savers they went over the packaging detail.
Wind Guardians they discuss how they added the popular V-dramon based on the popularity of Zeromaru from the manga Digimon V-Tamer.
Virus Busters they mention how Seraphimon and Ophanimon was added and how the third Great Angel Digimon is also included in a special egg.

They finish off Silver Blue by going over some of the special eggs:
New Virus Busters- Dukemon and Duftmon from the Royal Knights are in this egg, along with the cool BushiAgumon.
Lopmon- The other twin Digimon appears in this Pendulum.
Ryudamon- This Digimon is from the Pendulum X V-Pet.
V-mon- From Digimon Adventure 02, they've given V-mon two evolution paths.




Then we have special eggs that show up in both new Pendulums!

Dorumon and Rudomon! They don't detail these, but they do go back to Rudomon at the end...

Last we have some of the jogress Digimon that will appear, which they've previewed over the last few weeks off and on.




Next week will be an interview with Kenji Watanabe and details about Rudomon, the Digimon designed for the 20th Anniversary Pendulums!




Only two weeks left to pre-order.


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



Previous weekly 20th Pendulum updates have included:
Cold Mode
Copymon
New Virus Busters
New Nightmare Soldiers
Silver Blue Special Digi-Eggs
Silver Black Special Digi-Eggs, Plus ones in both!
Jogress Digimon
Password Digimon



Update- Another update from Bandai... While the Digimon we've seen thus far have all been raiseable, or accessible via Copymon that you get from passwords, there are other Digimon that will show up.


Various Digimon will appear as enemies in Battle Mode. You'll find the Seven Great Demon Lords, Royal Knights, among a few other familiar faces.

RustTyranomon, Omegamon Alter-S, and GraceNovamon! I doubt it's a mistake that they are showing off three of the strongest Digimn from the 20th V-Pet!


Image Thumbnail (custom)

And Sistermon Blanc and Sistermon Noir show up in black and white sprite form to stand in your way. (I believe they point these two out because they haven't shown up as monochrome sprites before.)

So half just end at Ultimate. I hate when games do that, everything should get to Mega. Also a lot of these lines make no sense.

So far we already get over 200 digimons total and over 40 of them from special eggs. The only number that has not yet been fullfilled yet is for jogress (at least 10). I was hoping imperialdramon fm was counted as regular digimon not jogress, but it seems they counted it as jogress.

I wonder why they do not include the password digimons from last week in this update considering they have not reveal any new ones (11 left)

That is weird, especially since some of the cutoffs could easily lead into Ultimates/Megas already included. WereGarurumon in the silver black pendulum doesn't even turn into MetalGarurumon for crying outloud! XD

As for the lines themselves, I find them extremely nostalgic! A lot of these are the lines available in the original cards, like Otamamon to Tailmon. I'm guessing they were pulled straight from the original Pendulum lines.

I would assume the new Pendulums use roughly the same setup the originals had.

They aren't listing 'straight' evolution lines (minus the case of some of the special eggs.)


In the original Pendulums you had 6 Perfects and 3 Ultimates.

1 Ultimate required specific raising conditions to get. The other 2 requires a Jogress of specific Perfects.


The new ones just add more potential Ultimates to the mix.


Also a lot of these lines make no sense.
I'm not sure how the lines don't make sense... the majority of these are from the original Pendulums 20 years ago.

I love these evolution lines, talk about nostalgia. The Pendulums really do keep getting better and better. Also Belphemon RM’s digivolution line is amazing, Astamon???? I can’t wait!

Pendulum evolution works differently than vpet. All ultimate can end up as mega. Either by regular method or jogress. I cant say anything about the special eggs tho

Really love these evolution lines. Like others have stated previously they are extremely nostalgic. These lines where used in the original Pendulums and card game.

Also I hope it keeps the original digivolution requirements; but since they are adding the X.5 Digimon I imagine there will be some sort of alteration?

Thinking on preordering a second Silver Black... not sure :/

Also I wonder if the remaining jogress are Apokalimon, Ordinemon, Beelzebumon Blast Mode and Dukemon Crimson Mode? Would be cool if it was instead Demon Super Mode and if there was a new SaintGargomon and Cherubimon jogress.

Ordinemon is semi confirmed indeed, and they are also hinting a Demon lord jogress (either Beelzebumon BM or Demon SU).
Gargomon x cherubimon would be interesting indeed, but I am more hoping for Rudomon mega x Durandamon. Maybe we can Durandamon via password?

Marin Angemon and Metal Seadramon being switched is really bothering me. Vaccine on top! Data in middle! THOSE ARE THE RULES!

I just noticed it and now it’s bugging me too! Why do you think it is they did that?

I assume it's just a careless oversight on their part, though if it isn't and they actually changed the evolution options from the originals, I'm not going to be pleased with that. I doubt that's the case though, and the switched positions are probably meaningless.

They are both still Vaccine mega, right?
usually the positioning is: the top one being vaccine, middle one data, and bottom one virus

This is going to be cool. Never had a pendulum before. Almost bought an original before finding out about anniversary stuff just before Vpet 20th happened. Other than some obvious evolution requirements, i'll be lost in fun figuring it out. Cold mode will finally ease some hurt on busy days. Want to know if a second wave will be released before ordering extra here....

Well Metal Seadramon is Data, so it should Marin Angemon (Vaccine), Meta Seadramon (Data), Pukumon (Virus), Plesiomon (2.5). So it should look more like this:

The fan community went WAY above and beyond to make understanding every detail of the Digital Mosnter Ver.20th as easy as possible, so just keep track here on the forums and on r/Digimon and you'll get plenty of information.

I was talking with a friend earlier about a Durandamon Rudomon Mega jogress. My only question about Rudomon is what will his final form’s element be. We’ve seen ice and thunder so far.

See it's funny, because Pendulum was one of my first experiences with Digimon, so I feel the same way every time Zudomon doesn't evolve to Marin Angemon, or Tonosama Gekomon doesn't evolve into Metal Etemon

Nice lineup! Hoping to see more (many more!) jogress digimon!

Since both ordinemon and raguelmon are in, do you guys think we'll see the new omegamon?
