The Digimon Card Game Twitter has updated with a card preview from Booster Set 5 Battle of Omega. This time we get Shademon.

The Xros Wars manga Digimon doesn't tend to show up that often, so it's nice to see him get a card. It's said he haunts the shadows of people and Digimon, and it appears here he is haunting Wendimon, who is certainly a Digimon who you could easily imagine being haunted.



And we also get...


The 7th episode of Digimon Classroom spinoff/side series 'Road to Digimon Card Master'.


This time Gachos and Moni-chan go over card game Q&A stuff with the Digimon Teacher and Goto P, with a focus on Booster Set 5.

The main focus for the episode for most will be a card preview though...

After various previews, we get a nice clean image of the Omegamon Zwart card for Bosoter Set 5!

And if you look at the thumbnail image for the video, you might get a look at a few Digimon who haven't formally been announced yet for BT5...




Digimon Card Game Booster Set 5 Battle of Omega is scheduled to release on February 26th.

Ah yes Eyesmon's Dad. I thought Eyesmon would render this guy to never seen again land. Now I wonder even more why they didn't just use Shademon in Eyesmon's spot. Or Eyesmon as a rookie. Oh well.

Now to wonder if Luminamon shows up. If she does maybe she'll be able to evolve from Black as well as Yellow? (Assuming she's yellow)

I don't get why Shademon is not Purple, but I shouldn't be surprised after all. It's just that it seems perfect for Purple, and the art suggets the Purple color too. Anyway I wondered if this Digimon wold have appeared after the introduction of Eyesmon and I'm really happy to see it.

Omegamon Zwart's art is still sick.
Edit: Now that I notice it, isn't the background a reference to the Kowloon sections in Cyber Sleuth?

Ayy, it was Shademon after all and not Eyesmon.

Kinda weird thats he's Black and not Purple when he's perfect because of the whole haunting thing. Anyways, another Security Digimon is interesting though it having Blocker makes it infinitely more useful than the previous ones. Though him not being able to attack does kind of suck.

I do wonder what kind of Evo-line he's supposed to have. :unsure:

My guess is that it's in Black for the sake of digivolving into Omnimon Zwart but even then I don't see why it couldn't have been a Purple line, or why they couldn't have used a different Digivolution line. An unusual choice, I think if Shademon sees a second appearance it'll be in a Purple set.

Maybe it's just because he's black. I'm pretty sure I've noticed that reasoning with other mons.
Not that the delineation between colours has been super strict to begin with.

So it looks like we’re getting another Keramon line (and Armagemon’s Ultimate Flare), a new Palmon, Zwart Defeat, BlackGaogamon, and Pillomon.

Oh, and I guess now we know what happened to Chocomon.

Possibly that it's a part of Tactimon's line?

...which Digimon got fitted into Black because it was colored that way?

First Megidramon, now presumably Armageddemon since it has an Option Card, Omegamon really getting bodied left and right in his own set.

Wendigomon? Sweet. Wait a min... Don't tell me that was the responsible of Shademon for corrupting this poor one in the movie?! Or what?

I seriously thought Eyesmon is new recolor or took over Shademon but it doesn't seem that way.

Well yeah, it could have been a reason if Tactimon itself wasn't Purple, irocally :ROFLMAO:, but now I'm very curious to see what's the actual line of both these mons.

So it looks like we’re getting another Keramon line (and Armagemon’s Ultimate Flare), a new Palmon, Zwart Defeat, BlackGaogamon, and Pillomon.

I can't believe I totally missed that part.

Wendimon's corruption in Hurricane Touchdown was internally caused, not externally caused. The Movie changed that, but that wasn't in the original.

Not Black specifically, but like say how Goblimon/Ogremon/Digitamamon/Titamon are in Green (Insect/Flower/Jungle-Trooper), despite thematically being more Purple aligned (Spooky/Demon/Nightmare-Soldiers).

...In BT-1.

Which didn't have Purple.

Green makes the most sense of the colors in BT-1 for that line.

Also V-mon’s line being Blue, Armadimon’s being Yellow, etc.

V-mon being Blue makes enough sense. Nature Spirits and Wind Guardians being massive, all-consuming classes meant they needed to be split off (NS into Blue and Green, WG into Red and Blue), and pretty much every V-mon part has been stuck in that class. Hell, V-dramon's line have been Wind Guardians since fields were a thing.

Armadimon actually debuted as Blue, which makes sense given its two fields - Nature Spirits, and Deep Savers. Its arrival into Yellow would be weird, if not for the fact that it then proceeded to evolve into Shakkoumon and Clavisangemon, two Virus Busters. (Well, speaking technically, Clavisangemon isn't confirmed in Virus Busters, but... that's like how Raremon wasn't confirmed in Metal Empire for over two decades, that doesn't really mean much when we all know it is there.) Single members of a line not being in a Field is allowable if most of them are, and half of them were, so that's fine enough.

Shademon's in Black because it's part of some line that's going to be mostly Metal Empire, most likely.

Shademon
[Security] After this Security battle, play this card without paying its memory cost
<Blocker>
[Your Turn] This Digimon can't attack

Omnimon Zwart
[When Digivolving] Trash the top 3 cards of your deck. Then, you may play up to 2 black or purple Digimon cards that have a Play Cost of 8 or lower from your Trash without paying their memory costs
[When Attacking] You may return 1 Lv. 6 Digimon card from this Digimon's digivolution cards to your hand to delete 1 of your opponent's unsuspended Digimon that has a Play Cost of 12 or lower


it's cool to see Shademon but this card is just.... It can work well in a yellow deck that can plant it on top of security but a monster made of darkness only reaching its full potential in the color associated with light is a bit too ironic for me to like, even though I get that more light means stronger shadows. Well, actually, I guess it give black a very black comeback mechanic and can help them out, plus a Level 4 is only 2 levels from level 6 and you do get it for free. I'm definitely in the camp who thinks it thematically should have been purple as well as I see purple as the darkness color but I guess Shademon could be revealed to be artificial in origin like Keramon and all its abilities are undoubtedly extremely black

While certain Fields are associated with certain Colors, it's evidently clear that Field is not the sole basis of categorization.

There are plenty of cards that are categorized into Colors based on gameplay, elemental attribute, or simply literal color. For example, pretty much every single mineral-based Digimon is in Black, despite mineral-based Digimon being primarily associated with Nature Spirits. It could be because the gameplay of Black suits them, or because of their dark and neutral color-schemes; either way, it's obviously not because of Nature Spirits.

You're right.

It is instead that they're mineral based, which is, you know, the same thing 90% of Metal Empire Digimon are. (The rest are either Cyborgs or really, really weird corner cases like Greymon who are just kind of there)

(also some of them then evolve into metal empire stuff, which, well, see above point on "only part of a line has to be in the field")

There's also Terriermon, who in my opinion, probably should've been Black due to his line being primarily machine-based. Instead, he ended up with the color that was associated with insects and plants.

Well wouldn't that fit, because of it evolving to Luminamon in the manga? so it turns to the light and becomes a good guy. they'll prob have a luminamon card that lets you evolve from black or shademon.

As for the cards and fields they are mostly matching, but will always have randoms. The fields themselves are like that where some Digimon sometimes end up in super random ones like the fact Guilmon has been classified as Deep Savers before.
