A few things to go over as the weekend is about to get started...




First up is the Digimon Web account sharing some art of Lucemon: Satan Mode dealing with Coronavirus:
#StayHome 🏡
Even Lucemon:Satan Mode, who's told to appear only when the end of the world is nigh, stays indoors and relaxes in times like these 🥱 He uses the Gehenna like a balance ball to workout while staying inside! ⚽

They also posted another...



This one shows Angemon and Devimon, 100% getting along for sure, to show how we have to work together. Although it feels like the handshake being part of it might be a bad idea... (although they both have gloves on, so maybe...):
Let us all join hands in order to help regain the once peaceful days to the world sooner. Yes, even between evil and justice! Even Angemon and Devimon are getting along! ...Getting along?🤔


And the next one isn't quite social media art... kind of.



Tenya Yabuno was participating in a bit of social media fun that involved manga creators posting images of their work, and tagging others to do the same, and the image he posted of ULForceV-dramon (which is preexisting art) is high enough resolution to use as a wallpaper, so it seemed like a good idea to share that.




And last up for social media artwork, from Digimon Web again was a bit of 2 part fun they shared.



They posted this image of an early design that was being worked on for a Digimon, and posted it along with a quiz and hints for who it was:
Digimon Quiz
We are releasing an early design of a Digimon!
Which Digimon was this initially planned for?
A hint is, child level・appears in anime.
Do you understand?


And the reveal they did...




The correct answer for the Digimon quiz... It was Gaomon!
A child Digimon who appeared in Digimon Savers! Many people answered correctly! I wonder if it was easy to figure out based on the image...
It was a sudden Digimon quiz... stay tuned for next time!



Next up is a reference book update...





Algomon (Adult) from Digimon Adventure: has been added to the reference book. The better quality art of it above is from the Digimon Web Twitter.

Rough translation of the reference book content:
Level- Adult
Type- Mutant
Attribute- Virus
Techniques- Volt Line and Imprisonment

Algomon appears like this in its adult form. It's processing capability has increased abnormally as it's grown. It has become more powerful and its hands can act as manipulators so it can lift big enemies. Its special moves are Imprisonment, where it can restrain enemies with the tentacles coming out if it's mouth, and Volt Line, where it injects electric shocks directly into its enemies.




And last up, 2 more new cards from the Digimon Card Game!



More cards from Booster Set 1 New Evolution via the Digimon Card Game Twitter!

The last batch of cards was very anime lead heavy (Agumon and Gabumon plus their evos), and this time we get Tyranomon and Kokuwamon.

Both have the same scaling issue we've been seeing on posted images, but both have rather nice artwork, with Tyranomon especially having an interesting coloring style to it.



Booster Set 1 is scheduled to release on May 15th.

Devimon's hand getting squeezed by Angemon, and Devimon stomping on Angemon's foot is a cute touch.

I wonder if this early concept of Gaomon is based on a certain dog breed in Japan known as Ryukyu Ken? And Algomon Adult's "Feelers" look like it's Zombie Snail Parasite's "eyes"? It really reminded me of that...

Aww lucemon got so bored that he turned into his mega form just to have a balance ball, well considering he’s a kid and doesn’t want to ignore social distancing he can’t buy his own toy ball

I was thinking that it's odd that Kokuwamon is a green card as, even though it's an insect, it's fully a mechanical digimon and only listed within the Metal Empire family. At first it seemed that mechanical Digimon might be in green for some odd reason, but now I'm wondering if it's just a sign they'll give it more nature oriented evolutions and just wanted Kokuwamon to fit in better with other cards

I like the added bonus of the Dragon of Revelation staying inside meaning "It's all going to be okay. We'll all ride this out."

The Kokuwamon card's artwork looks oddly cute.

Ha ha ha. ...Once this is over those two will just kill each other. Also, things are bad enough that even a monster like that stays inside. These really do help.

This isn't just any UlforceVeedramon, though. This is Future Mode, itself. DANG! This is really nice to see him again, especially for fans of V-Tamer.

The Kuwagamon line probably.

I'd find that pretty neat, it feels like they don't use Kokuwamon as a child for Kuwagamon as much as you'd think they would. I looked it up on Wikimon and Kokuwamon has only evolved to Kuwagamon in four instances and they were all also within card games, which is probably why I think of it as so disjointed from the other bugs. I hope Digimon does what the Pokemon TCG does where they print versions of the same Digimon in other colors that also match one of their themes, for example Leomon could make sense as a red, yellow, or green card and is already a blue card

In Sunburst & Moonlight, Kokuwamon Jogresses with Tentomon into Kuwagamon.
In Lost Evolution, Kokuwamon evolves normally into Kuwagamon.
And if it counts, the entire Kokuwamon X > Kuwagamon X > Okuwamon X > GrandisKuwagamon line is available in the Digimon X ver.2 V-Pet.

But yes, still not that often. Kuwagamon > Okuwamon was originally an alternative line for Tentomon in the Pendulum V-Pet, and shared HerculesKabuterimon with the Kabuterimon line as an Ultimate. Kokuwamon was later introduced as the primary Data-attribute Metal Empires Child-level, while also serving as a Child-level Kuwagamon. Likewise, GranKuwagamon was later introduced as DinoBeemon's Ultimate-level, while also serving as an Ultimate-level Kuwagamon. However, GranKuwagamon has really taken off as a mainstay for the Kuwagamon line, while Kokuwamon not so much (probably due to being primarily Metal Empire).

Kokuwamon is basically reverse Fanbeemon. Robot that turns into bugs, whilst Fanbeemon is a bug that turns into robots. Maybe they can switch places lol

This. Don't forget Tentomon: Husk shell > Exoskeleton > Exoskeleton gain insect meats > Finally fully developed grown-up living insect but Tentomon is kinda "digital"-ish looking unlike Kabuterimon evos.

Also Kokuwamon's origin name is the same thing as Kuwagamon's so that's why they share same jaws. Machine > living bug evo is part of Digimon's logic... Making it more interesting.

It's weird unlike Pokemon, we didn't have any insect digimon evo that requires "bug cocoon"... I guess cocoon will be counted as "digitama" in evolving style... I know we have Infermon but...

Also Kokuwamon has Scissor Arms Mini, a weaker version of Kuwagamon's Scissor Arms.

I think they should've named him "Kokuwagamon" to make it more clear. The dropped ga makes it slightly more confusing.

Then again, Okuwamon is the same thing. No ga.

Yeah it confuses me how they only treat Kuwagamon's evo line differently for not naming "Kuwaga"mon while there are too many others that still kept their names but with extra words added as the next evo forms.

oh, thank you! I didn't know about those instances, but admittedly I based that off of only seeing four sources and thinking that meant "four instances" so it was bad research on my end. I think if Kuwagamon is going to take Grand Kuwagamon consistently, Stingmon should get Grandis Kuwagamon more often, although keeping a slide evolution between Grand Kuwagamon and Grandis Kuwagamon as a callback to Imperialdramon is also very nice.
I'm really liking Kokuwamon more and more by the day after getting it as a randomly generated partner in a program the user Humulos made and linked on their Twitter (it's also preventing me from rerolling, devious thing). Seeing them in the card game this early and having art this amazing for them is awesome but I wasn't planning on using green personally so that was a bit of a curveball. I personally like the shortening of "kuwaga" to "kuwa" for Kokuwamon and Okuwamon, it keeps a family name while also giving them a nice individuality from eachother as well
