Yeah Frontier writers made it hard to understand Legendary Spirits' level. But all I know it may be very tactical fights although it's still confusing.And in the very next episode, Agnimon was defeated by an Adult-level Raremon. Animes don't really care about being consistent to a inter-media standard. Villains will be as strong/weak as the writers want them to be.Agnimon managed to defeat Cerberumon, a Perfect level.
There's nothing too off about these. They evidently wanted a Darkness Spirit line for the X2, and there isn't a Darkness-equivalent to Flamon, so they went with the next lowest stage.Duskmon being selected as Child was the most weirdest decision made for that. Agnimon in Next Order was Perfect level but it was still somewhat strange instead of Vitramon.
Why not Loweemon? Or why was Loweemon cut out? They needed to cut something about, if they were planning on including both corrupted and regular Spirits in a single line. Besides, the bit-sprite for Loweemon would probably be too similar to Raihimon's bit-sprite (especially the close-up faceshot), while Duskmon and Velgrmon have pretty unique silhouettes and designs.
As for Agnimon, probably for similar technical issues. They might not have had a Vritramon completely ready in time, and they didn't want to skip a stage, so they bumped Agnimon up. In fact, they didn't have KaiserGreymon ready in time either. The original Japanese Next Order had only Agnimon(Perfect) > Susanoomon(Ultimate), before they added KaiserGreymon(Ultimate) in the newer iterations and bumped Susanoomon up another level.
Then came Hacker's Memory, which added Vritramon to the line and bumped Agnimon down to Adult, and retroactively added the whole line to the newer iterations of the base Cyber Sleuth.
Ready in time? It seemed when it comes to English version, they had time to add DLC to install while the japanese versions didn't have it still but well then they did receive it much later... I guess I shouldn't say that much since I'm kinda forgetful. Still it bothered me the models of Hacker's Memory and Next Order for Agnimon's line felt... Somewhat different due to the animation.
Not bad for choosing JewelBeemon due to its shiny blurring of rainbow shell. But still it is standing out because there is.... A man in that evo line.
