Appmon works like fusion but the end result is the next level like agumon+tentomon = greymonPersonally, I'm pretty in favor of the more traditional system myself*. However, Bandai's taking it a bit too far in the other direction by acting like Adventure is all that matters, as if other well-loved segments of the franchise don't exist.
*Just to elaborate further, I hardly hate Armor evolution as a concept, but in execution, it just seems to have served as a way to introduce a bunch of glorified Adults with (for the most part) dead-end evolution chains. Spirits are a similarly item-based evolution, where its main gimmick of humans utilizing them only really worked in one piece of media (though its progression system is surprisingly straight-forward, even if all of them can only ever end in Susanoomon). DigiXros/Xros-Up was just a needlessly complicated attempt at ditching levels completely while introducing a crapton of one-scene composite Digimon that aren't really worth remembering (not to mention that they have the design philosophy of a Pokemon Fusion Generator as opposed to Jogress Evolution). Can't really speak on Appmon, but from what I know they seem to just be an offshoot of the traditional system (straight-forward stage progression, just isn't compatible with the existing system for whatever reason). X Digimon are simply variations of existing Digimon (or in rarer cases, original Digimon that simply have that designation, like DORUmon). You might have a same-level mutation between the two variants, but for the most part, it's pretty straight-forward.
