How come I couldn't find any suggestion of Dark Knightmon evolving into Alphamon!? The colour palette is perfect and strengthens the connection to Pawn (even though he doesn't have as many 'classic knight' features).


Choromon>Caprimon>PawnChessmon (black)>Skull Knightmon>Dark Knightmon>Alphamon=Alphamon: Ouryuken

@Seejeymon I think that's because they're usually in opposite sides of the hero/villain scale. But it could work very well for a redeemed DarkKnightmon or a more Templar-like Alphamon.

Well, generally Nyaromon is paired with YukimiBotamon, but if you’re looking for something more original, then Relemon or Puffmon might work.

The Nyaromon talk gave me an interesting idea… We have 3 true Gatomon subspecies as well as 3 Botamon subspecies*. But the Botamon subspecies can be fairly different. This sort of shows the idea of convergent evolution, albeit imperfectly. In some extreme examples, species that are fairly distantly related converge to the point that it pretty much requires a specialist to distinguish the two (there's a pair of lizards like this that comes to mind, but I don't recall anything more from a class… shoot, close to a decade ago).

So here, the fairly distinctive Botamons converge for 2 stages due to being under the same selective pressures. Afterwards, when that selective pressure is no more, they begin to diverge again with a few older traits popping back up. Gatomon and BlackGatomon revert to their original coat color, while Mikemon draws upon latent jungle data.

Botamon → Nyaromon → Salamon → BlackGatomon
SnowBotamon → Nyaromon → Salamon → Gatomon
Nyokimon → Nyaromon → Salamon → Mikemon

*Nyokimon's profile denotes it as a variant of Botamon.

Meicoomon's also sort of Gatomon-adjacent as well, with her own recolors of Nyaromon and Salamon. Since it also contains the data from Apocalymon, I wanted to look at this as a sort of malicious version of mimicry (like that of social parasites that have a similar appearance to their host species). I'd also considered the likes of Kiimon and Kuramon for the Fresh stage (Kuramon's used prominently for viral lines in Digimon: ReArise), but I preferred the versatility of Zurumon with the Meicoomon line's color scheme. I also did a new take on an Apocalymon line. Both take a bit of influence from Digimon Adventure: (2020).

Zurumon → unnamed Nyaromon recolor → unnamed Salamon recolor → Meicoomon (→ Mephismon or → Meicrackmon)
Zurumon → Pagumon → Tsukaimon → Devimon → Phelesmon → DoneDevimon → Apocalymon

Starting a new series of charts. A line for each of the standard-grade Appmon.
This batch is Ecomon, Hackmon, Protecmon, Dicemon, and Dogamon.

For Hudiemon, Eosmon has some insectoid features.
Could go into plant-types such as Lilamon/Lilymon -> Lotusmon/Rafflesimon.
Sanzomon, Entermon, and Sirenmon also have similar abilities.


More Appmon. This bunch is Drawmon, Gashamon, Luckmon, Calcumon, and Calendamon.

I would like shivamon more if it wasnt for the kind of cyber lotus flower thing. Still i like to think that as a connection with plant digimons.

Pistmon face/mask looks like Shivamon one, and if shivamon moves using that mechanic flower i could see it as an evolution of its bike, even having some spikes on its base.



I have to say that mihiramon to achillesmon is the deffinition of perfection to me, the colours, felines, the shields from mihiramon shoulders are now on Achilles boots and the wings of mihiramon evolved into those "celestial" wings from the boots of achilles. Also Runnermon evolving into mihiramon feels ok, anyways tobucatmon makes a good job as its adult, with the race theme and the tomahow hair wich resembles the spartan hair in achilles helmet.

I really didn't expect Flaremon, BlackMachGaogamon and Bearmon's evo with Pandamon went well with Achillesmon's flow.

And I like the idea Shivamon's metal lotus leading from Plant evos.

I think Shivamon serves as the slide evolution to Shakamon for switching from body movement to calm mind.

I wonder how do I handle Lotusmon for putting her under Shivamon's evo? I can't think up any idea but Lotusmon did have rainbow laser attack too

Shivamon's coloring and its white snake sort of resembling MarineDevimon's tentacles make me think it would also make a good evolution of him.
