The Digimon Web website has updated with a subsite for the Digimon Pendulum Z, the Folder Continent Report.


It's framed as some sort of researcher traveling around Folder Continent and writing up reports on it.


For now we are using the machine translations from the site, but will update as time allows.




Much of the information is basic information about 'Digimon' itself, but the main thing of interest for now is detailing their 'discovery' of Nature Spirits as it currently exists on the continent during the era of Pendulum Z:



The first thing I investigated was changes in the ecosystem of "Nature Spirits." There were many Digimon that could not be confirmed in the past records. "Unimon" and "GaoGamon" run around the grasslands. "Golemon play snuggled in," "Morphomon" and "Gaomon". "Roachmon" flying around the shade of trees was observed. Furthermore, many Digimon have also been discovered in the desert areas of the severe habitat. Quickly move in the sand to hide from "SkullScorpiomon", the desert champion Sunarizamon is one of the newly discovered Digimon. Most of its body is composed of sand. We need to continue researching how to interact with other Digimon. "Tentomon" and "Monochromon" that were present in the past records were also confirmed, and they coexist on the same ground. Although it is a world of weak and strong food that prey on each other, Digimon of "Nature Spirits" seem relatively calm.


And the big thing for now... the almost complete lineup for Nature Spirits in the Pendulum Z!



So 22 Digimon are shown out of 25. What that number might be after any additional secrets we don't know, but the lineup overall seems reasonably interesting with a decent variety of Digimon old and new.



On top of the lineup, the 3 new Digimon have been added to the reference book:


Sunalizarmon
Baboongamon
Gogumamon


More updates to come!



More details, including how to pre-order, the Digimon Pendulum Z can be found here.

Interesting line-up. As expected, Hudiemon's and Jewelbeemon's recent addition to the DRB are indeed a result of the Pendulum Z. I actually really like the idea of Archnemon>AncientBeatmon.

So we still have 3 NSp Ultimates to be revealed, along with the evolutions for the Tailmon bonus egg.

Considering how Gaomon's line seems to be the version's "best" line, I wouldn't be surprised if one of those Ultimate+ is MirageGaogamon Burst Mode (though then again, it doesn't really make sense to hide it).

What the Hades? That rock animal evo line didn't share the same Attribute. Lizard one is Virus while other two Rock ones are Vaccine.
So Gogmamon isn't counted as Golemon family... Shame. At least in random evo for personal headcanons.

Look like somebody got his wish granted. The one who posted a certain comment about wanting the lore for more information outside of the File Island.

Having Morphomon evolving to Hudiemon actually happened huh I didn't expect Z actually connect it to that.

I was hoping for a lot more new Digimon like the original Pendulums, instead of just one or two new lines.

At least most of the old Digimon are new to the 16x16 format.

I was also hoping for a Perfect for Hudiemon, but it looks like we'll just (maybe) get Eosmon Ultimate instead with JewelBeemon conecting her.

I guess that kind of makes sense since Hudiemon as Morphon's natural Adult makes Wormmon and Morphomon "sister" species with connecting branches, but I'd have preferred a new female insect Digimon given that the only one that we have is Arachnemon.

I really dig that these seem to focus on the Warrior 10, so at least there's that.

Pretty cool that it seems like SunaLizamon was designed specifically to be Golemon's Child form, though.

And that the concept of the "Filth" Adult may have been brought back in Gokimon.

I hope Nightmare Soldiers Z has more new Digimon than just Ghosmon!

I hadn't even considered that SandLizardmon looks a ton like Golemon! I like that. 25 seems like a super small number and with only 3 of them looking new.... idk if I'm gonna purchase this one

I like it being virus as I see it as Golemon's child. Look how cute they look together, I love them!

Yeah at first I thought that sand lizard's evo are that Baboongamon and Gogmamon but shockingly their Attributes doesn't match up and this evo chart showed up connecting with Golemon. Surprisingly I seriously thought Golemon's evo is full of poisonous ore Virus type, to think this sand Reptile Type being connected.

I hope Wormmon/Morphomon evolving to Hudiemon won't be another wars of Tailmon's Ultimate slots. But I agree about new insect Perfect for her. Still, not giving full evos to few certain ones annoys me...

To be fair, it was just introduced tonight so I don't think anyone had time to make the connection.

Hmm it's really extremely odd SandLizarmon being confirmed as "Reptile" rather than... "Sand" or "Mineral" since it is said its entire is made up of sand. I guess my personal headcanon for Golemon's Child level Ore is busted now. Cute... Eh, heh good to have more Reptile ones instead of Dragon.

Just because Digimon don't share an Attribute doesn't mean they can't be evolutionarily connected. It wasn't even that way in the original Pendulums for Child to Adult, and clearly the Z series doesn't follow the Pendulums' format.

Even in the original Pendulums, they did make some thematic choices for evolutions beyond Adult that ignore Attributes. HerculesKabuterimon, for example, evolved from both AtlurKabuterimon and Okuwamon (though of course, at least one of the pre-evolutions do share the same attribute).

Now that we know kind of how these ones will work, I'm going to guess for Deep Savers:

Sangomon (Child)
Tobiumon (Adult, alternate Adult form of Sirenmon along with the "canon" Kiwimon)
MarineChimeramon, Gusokumon, Piranhimon (Perfect)
Legalexmon (Ultimate)

Other main child Digimon are pulled from pool of Gamemon, Swimmon, and Penmon.

Gamemon is the "main" line of this version like Gaomon is for Nature Spirits Z.

Lots of 02-era Faith-Digimental Armor Digimon as Adult-levels.

Ultimates include JumboGamemon, AncientMegatheriumon, MetalPiranmon, Surfimon, Vikemon and/or Olegmon, and Splashmon.

Eh I understand less and less since I never own Pendulum Vpets or format you mentioned there.

Just only assumed SandLizarmon's evo is full of Virus and the reality slapped me. That's all.

About Baboongamon's design. Obviously it's clearly based on Japanese Macaque so why "Baboon"? Or that doesn't matter?

This line kind of sticks out to me and makes me wonder if a "Classic Egg" is an unlockable in each of these. Maybe by connecting Wave 1 to Wave 2 the Original egg could be unlocked?

To be fair, there are Baboons with this skin and fur coloration, namely the Hamadryas Baboon:

So I was right as to why Hudiemon and JewelBeemon went into the DRB... ah, if only debuting in a game was enough instead of just being part of a vpet. Oh well.

Surely that secret one after MGmon is Burst Mode... but then you'd have no reason to hide it. Maybe MGmon Ruin Mode!? finally doing something with his Digital Hazard!? nah, unlikely.

Shame they didn't take the chance to give Hudiemon her own new evolutions - oh well.

Interestingly if the machine translation on the site is to be believed, Digimon were "announced to the public in 1997" rather than "discovered in 1997". I guess that backs up that stuff Habu was saying about how (in Survive at least) Digimon always existed, but computers allowed us to manifest them etc. so they existed for however long and then they were found by humans and then were announced to the public in 1997. How dare those researchers hide Digimon from us for probably years!

The lizard kinda looks like Golemon, and Golemon is virus.

Oh. I guess this fits Baboongamon's design well.

You know, guys. I think it's really unnecessary to put ? on the mystery slot on MirageGaogamon's next evo slot but this pattern continues even after Antibody X pets. So I'm really loss at what to say. Maybe they took Pokemon's ? unrevealed slot of "Who is this Pokemon" pattern on TV....
