A bit ago, the official Digimon site put up a poll for your favorite Digimon LCD toy/v-pet (not including anime related products.)

Recently the poll closed and we have the results!




And the winner is... the original Digital Monster V-Pet!

Thanks for all your votes.
The LCD toys that got the most votes as the most memorable LCD toy among the non-anime products was...
Digital Monster!

Digital Monster, the origin of the series, proved to be the zenith of the series, shining brightly in everyone's hearts as #1.

Second place went to the Vital Bracelet Digital Monster, the state of the art LCD toy that links your activity data with Digimon, and allows you to train a large number of color sprite Digimon from a variety of Dims.

Third place went to the Digimon Pendulum, which was the follow-up to the original Digital Monster, and had the first appearance of Ultimate forms, and which is also memorable for it's well known commercial "Monmon Digimon Raise Monmon♪

Various old and new LCD toys were ranked in various positions.
It shows that many people have strong feelings about all the LCD toys.

This time anime products weren't included, but does this mean there will be a poll for anime prodcuts as well?

Please look forward to it.

They gave the full results:
Digital Monster- 19%
Vital Bracelet Digital Monster- 17%
Digimon Pendulum- 16%
Digimon Pendulum X- 13%
Digimon Pendulum Progress- 10%
Digimon Accelerator- 8%
Digital Monster X- 7%
Digimon Mini- 4%
Digimon Pendulum Z- 3%
Digimon Twin- 2%
Xros Wars Mini- 1%




The top 3 is exactly what you'd expect. After that the only thing surprising is the Digimon X didn't rank higher, with how liked it is.




The poll for 'Favorite Digimon from the Original Version 1 Digimon V-Pet' had results announced recently.

The poll for 'Favorite Perfect Level Digimon from Ghost Game' is currently open.

Yeah the DMX is pretty beloved for its story content, interesting that it didn't rank at least a couple notches higher. But otherwise makes sense; the innovation of features is what features highly. I know the VB probably has some recency bias, but it IS a really cool piece of tech, so hey.

This poll result is confusing to me. Honestly Pendulum Z series is the best for tons of new digimons yet voted below Digital Monster X?!

I really hope pendulum progress can be ranked higher as it might be indicator for Bandai to produce its anniversary.

Not surprising, seeing as how it was re-released so many times. It's probably the one people are most familiar with.

I’m a bit disappointed and surprised by the results. I’m completely shocked that the Pendulum isn’t at first. It’s been by far the best one (Pen 1-5, .5, 0, and ver 20th), really ambitious, and it’s got a lot of nostalgia value. I’m also surprised that the Pendulum Z ranked sooo low. It’s one of the best virtual pets so far and has great quality of life improvements.

I’m partially surprised the Vital Bracelet is at second considering the Vital Bracelet itself is a pretty flawed and over simplistic. Maybe it’s at second because it’s new and in color? (At least it being second is not in vain since the Vital Bracelet BE seems to be a lot closer to my expectations of what the original was going to be. I hope the BE knocks all our expectations out of the park!)

Divided with PenX being fourth. As much as I love the Pen X (it’s one of the few things in my life I’d say I have nostalgic feelings for since it marked a important personal moment in my life) I feel it’s to high the original was a bit broke and the others super hard. That said Pen X 3.0 is God Tier and now that I think about it the difficulty made it more a more satisfying experience…

I’m super divided with the PenProg. It’s my favorite and I want a rerelease of it so bad! I’m sad it’s not at the top three and worried this might affect the chances of a rerelease… but at the same time I’m personally surprised by how high it did! I was expecting it much lower. It reached the top five! That has to mean something right? Considering no one really talks about it :,(

I’m shocked the Mini ranked higher than the Twin and VpetX! Inversely I’m shocked the Twin ranked so low.

I really love the Accelerator line but, with everything considered, I think sixth is fair.

What didn’t surprise me was the Xros Wars mini being last 😂

It feels weird that the VB was included in this when its status as a v-pet is regularly debated among fans. It's easily my favorite of the list, but the comparison doesn't feel fair when its overall functionality leans more heavily in the Digivice direction. Not to mention its modern advantages of being wearable, having pretty colored sprites, and (seemingly) endless roster expansions.

On the flipside, the absence of the Digivice iC is also curious as it most definitely is a v-pet. I know its because its right out of Savers, but still! Does that also mean that the Digivice V variant of the VB will be in the anime poll too?

If you think about it though, the Pendulum series took a collective 42%. The Digital Monster (+X) and the VB combined sit at 43%. I'd call that a strong show of support for Pendulum models in general and a relatively weaker turnout for both nostalgia and the newest product.

Was pendulum z on the voting list?
Maybe someone remembers.
Did Pendulum include 20th and Z?
I voted for Digimon Mini (lol) but I already knew it wasn’t even remotely going to win.

I've always been surprised by how highly regarded the Pendulum Z series is.

It was a serious downgrade from the DMX - taking away it's greatest feature (the skill game for battles/training) and replacing it with a mind numbing simply mechanic.

Not to mention that it lacks all pendulum sound effects. The sound effects were so cool on the DMX because they were throwbacks to that of the Pendulum X - it really tied the two together as a series. They are so out of place on the Pen Z.

The random encounter battles were pointless as well (unlike the DMX where they unlocked evolutions). Overall Pendulum Z felt like a low effort project to me.

That being said I appreciate them for what they are. I'm glad we got them and did love the new mons that came with the series.

Pendulum X is what I voted for. And it sits about where I would've expected.

I just noticed Pen Z on the list (or was it edited in?)

I agree though, I like it for what it is, and I’m sure they’ll be expensive at some point but DMX is waaay better for sure.

Can’t wait to see what the new Digital Monster they are coming out with is, no matter what it ends up as.
