So, which Digimon have "gone lost" in time and probably won't ever be seen in another game or anime?

Some examples...

Blikmon: 3 of it appeared in Digimon World 1 as NPCs. In Digimon World 2, it could evolve from Tankmon or Clockmon and evolved into Boltmon. Besides that, I don't remember to have seen it in any other games.

Golemon (PS): He was an enemy in Digimon World 1 and he appeared in the two card games for PSX. That's all we ever saw from him.

Cardmon: 8 different kinds of Cardmon exist and they have never been seen outside of Digimon World 3 (and probably never will).

HolyDigitamamon: He was accepted as an official Digimon in a contest, as an evolution of Digitamamon, but was never used in any Digimon media and lives in the shadow of Devitamamon.

Citramon: While just a censored version of BomberNanimon, we can't get around that this Digimon appeared in an official Digimon media and had its own unique design. Due to his weird origins, he won't ever appear again in any Digimon media, but his existence gives us an interesting trio of Nanimons.

ToyAgumon L: This special ToyAgumon never appeared outside of the PSX card games.




The list goes on and on, but let me see what you guys can bring up! :)

Wow, just yesterday I read the C'mon manga. Probably Bun and the Death monsters will never see the light again. I would like to see their official colors though.

Also, I fear that Pipimon will never get an evolution; and there are other unreleased digimons from contests that they are probably forgotten forever, like Technodramon, Earthdramon, etc.

I'm waiting very patiently for HolyDigitamamon to become a thing.

If it takes 30 years....

True. The Buns and Death-mons are probably gone for good... Regarding Pipimon, then I'm 50/50 on us ever seeing him in an evolutionary context. In the Digimon Next manga, there is a big caravan of Digimon in chapter 8, namely: Jyagamon, Sunflowmon, Togemon, Palmon, Floramon, Lalamon, Tanemon, Pipimon and Nyokimon. Maybe this could be seen as an indication that he's just another Digimon able to evolve into Tanemon, like Nyokimon and Yuramon. But pure fan guessing from my side.

Some of them from this list are ome of the "lost digimon" https://wikimon.net/Category:Unreleased_Digimon

Some appmon (if they counts) that are found by using certain trick for applidrove toy seems to face the fate of the likes of HolyDogitamamon, such as Speciamon, Gugumon, and Santamon.

Most X-antibodied (non-carrier)Digimon especially those that aren't ultimate level such as MetalGreymonX and SeadramonX get this treatment.

Even some Digimon that debutted in anime also suffer this fate:
- Tamers: most devas aren't popular enough at all to appear in games
- Frontier, outside of card games, the hybrids (not the 10 Ancients) barely got any love, especially the evil ones.
- Savers: BanchouLeomon Burst Mode, "Agumon's Burst Mode", Eldradimon, Gizmon line (they got lucky in DMO), and bio Digimons.
- Xros Wars: most weapon/other-type digixros and joke xroses such as Dorulu Cannon, Sparrowmon AB, Pickmon slingshot, Shonitamon, ShouCutemon, GreatCutemon, Mushmon cottage from the manga, etc.
- Hunter: every single Xros Up

Obviously some boss Digimon in games are doomed to be "lost" such as:
-Gokumon(Reapermon), which only appeared in Rumble Arena and Card games recently
-Bemmon,Snatchmon,Destromon,Galacticmon,Suijinmon,Raijinmon,Raidenmon from DW3 (Fuujinmon got lucky with an appearance in DMO)
-ChaosSeadramon, ChaosGreymon, and Chaos Lord (very unloke to appear anymore since Chaosdramon supposed to be an upgraded version of it), and NeoCrimson from DW2 (ChaosPiemon got lucky in DMO)
-VR Digimon from Digimon Tamers Brave Tamers (granted VR stands for Virtual Reality)
-Armamon, OmegaArmamon Burst Mode, ShoutmonX3GM, ShoutmonX3SD, GreyKnightsmon, and ShoutmonX5S from Super Xros Wars
-Chronomon Destroy Mode face an ugly fate compared to its Holy Mode
-Grimmon, ChaosGrimmon, and ExoGrimmon from Sunburst/Moonlight

I would disagree that any Digimon with a Reference Book entry (like Gokumon, the Devas, or the Hybrids) could possibly considered lost. Bandai is clearly aware of their existence it's just a matter of when they'll have another product where they will actually fit in.

L ToyAgumon is pretty much colorless ClearAgumon or vaccine ToyAgumon (Black), isn't it?

Also, Technodramon. Though if it actually appeared I would probably be disappointed because it's different from my headcanon.

Well... All we know is that his Japanese name was ToyAgumon L (his English name was L-ToyAgumon) and he looks similar to but lighter than BlackToyAgumon. With a different look and a different name, it's pretty much a different species.

Technodramon has a cool name, lol.

It's also sad that Zombiemon never got released... He was the Adult in the Mummymon-Pharaohmon line when all 3 won that contest in 2000 to be official Digimon.

We don’t see V-Tamer exclusive Digimon usually besides the V-dramon and, on occasion, Arkadimon lines. This leaves a bunch out like Regulumon, Dominimon, Petite Mamon, Demon Super Ultimate, Parallelmon, and Metamormon.

Someone brought up Pippimon; I don't know how "lost" you can consider it, but it's existence is so weird. It seems like it was made exclusively for the anime; it has no Reference Book profile, evolves into nothing(no established line because it's never been in anything), has only appeared in the D-Terminal toy as far as V-Pets go, and only has an entry in the Digimon Memorial Book, which is anime-focused. I'm not sure why anyone involved in Zero Two thought Oikawa needed an original Digimon that's never gonna show up anywhere else; I guess to make his final scenes a little more memorable?

I also think about Burgamon and TorikaraBallmon a lot. EbiBurgamon and Burgamon Adult are in the Reference Book, but regular Burgamon isn't, and TorikaraBallmon is in the same boat as Pippimon(and I guess Kiimon and Yaamon). I wonder if that has anything to do with Burgamon seemingly being designed in tandem with Lotteria promotions; a burger chain in Japan.

The various final bosses from World 3, I would also like profiles/just see them more in general. BEMmon, Snatchmon, Destromon, and Ragnamon. BEMmon seems to be very close in design to Deathmon, at least.

True. Leomons die left and right, but Regulumon is the only Leomon to truly be buried for good, lol.

How is Coronamon forgotten? He was in Xros Wars and All Star Rumble. Koemon(Monmon) was also in Crusader.
More in terms of recent playable appearances. Coronomon has been ignored in favour of sister Lunamon in the last three games (Unless they surpise us as there's still a few unrevealed stops to go for HM) whilst Monmon has only been playable once.

Random cards/medals don't count but I guess it's better than nothing.

The point is they're definitely not forgotten, not "lost" like Cardmon or Snatchmon.

I was very intrigued by Habu's proposal for eventually having a game which features every Digimon (even if he claims it'd take 8 years.... hell, I'll wait 80 years, I just want it), but part of me wonders what Bamco would consider "every Digimon", since there are quite a lot that still have yet to see a Reference Book profile, or even a single piece of official artwork. Still, the fact that Digimon like Red V-dramon and the entire Arkadimon line (even the Baby form) got recent/upcoming revivals in the games leaves me rather hopeful.

Blikmon was rather odd.... it appeared in the first Digimon World, where it wasn't even considered a Digimon (just an NPC called the "Blik Doll"; the English localization did refer to it as a Digimon, though). Then the model got re-used in Digimon World 2, where it was established as its own Digimon (where it was a Perfect Data).... and then after that, nothing. It didn't even get an appearance in the card game whereas just about every other monster debuting in Digimon World did. I'm not sure why it suffered as it did, but I'm hoping it sees a revival.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Golemon from the first Digimon World be re-established as its own Digimon. Same with Digimon World 3's version of Black Seraphimon.

I don't think ToyAgumon-L is cause for concern. It's really just ToyAgumon (Black) but with a different name. Digital Card Arena introduced a few recolors like the red Otamamon and the violet Elecmon, but in those games, their names were distinguished by having a letter after them (guess they didn't wanna bother coming up with a completely new name to distinguish them like with the Digimon World recolors). I'm assuming you think that ToyAgumon-L is a different Digimon from ToyAgumon (Black) because L is supposed to be translucent like ClearAgumon. If you look at its appearance in most media, that's actually the case. The only exception that I'm aware of is its appearance in Frontier (which I'd chalk up to the animators not wanting to bother with a translucent effect on a small army of enemies of the week).

I don't know what the deal is with Pippimon, but thankfully, since the time of its introduction, the franchise has moved away from forcing one BabyII to every BabyI, so it should be able to fit into any existing evolution chain without much issue (I'd picture it evolving into Chapmon).

As for HolyDigitamamon and all those other contest winners..... yeah, I'm not sure why Bamdai/Bamco's been sitting so long on those guys, but hopefully they'll still get released eventually. We did get Mermaimon and Witchmon after quite a few years.

I'm not sure every single minor fusion in Xros Wars or the Xros-Ups really needs to be acknowledged as their own Digimon. I mean, do you look at MailBirdramon+Golemon and think of a whole new Digimon, or just a minor, temporary power-up? And really, I wouldn't be surprised if a majority of these were just the result of Toei screwing around with the gimmick without any input (or even consent) from Bamco (not to mention the sheer laziness of some of these designs, in both appearance and naming.... honestly, could the name of that DaiPenmon+IceDevimon fusion be any more of a mouthful? And honestly, I'll be perfectly fine if Dorbickmon+Huanlongmon never sees the light of day again). And let's not even get into every minor fusion DarkKnightmon went through in the manga. Overall, I'd say if they don't have official artwork, didn't appear in any other media (like Digimon Collectors or the Super Xros Wars games), and just isn't very distinguishable (as opposed to, say, ReverseWeddinmon), I don't think it should be noteworthy enough to count as a unique Digimon.

Likewise with Cheergalmon and those Digimon from the CD drama, they just come off to me as one-off gag Digimon, nothing more (we might as well count Takato's early sketches for Guilmon's Perfect form or Takeru's envisioned Adult forms for Patamon as Digimon in need of a revival).

And as for all those other minor Digimon from the games or other media, as I said before, they're liable to see a revival someday. Thankfully, the fans certainly haven't forgotten them, and if Bamco gets pestered enough, they could bring them all back. Amusingly, from what I've seen of the Japanese Digimon Game Community, a few Japanese fans are aware of Citramon and asking he be made official, same with Sleipmon Burst Mode and ChaosDukemon Chaos Mode. But I wonder about those Digimon World 3 enemy recolors (even though they seem to have their share of fans as well).

Anyway, some obscure Digimon I'd personally like to see: Impmon and Monodramon's BabyI and II forms. Baby Digimon have a hard time appearing in any media as is (partly due to not even being playable at all in the card game, for the most part), but these guys seem especially forgettable. There's no profile artwork, and while the BabyIIs got to appear at the end of Tamers, the BabyIs aren't near as lucky. Go on Wikimon, Ketomon only has a game sprite as its sole image, and Kiimon barely even exists (only ever being mentioned in an animation artbook, I think). I'm just glad that Arkadimon's Baby is coming back in Hacker's Memory, 'cause it's another Baby form that seemed liable to be doomed to obscurity (and should it not have appeared with the rest of its line, who knows when or if it'd get to be introduced in the Story series).

Also, Master V-dramon. Given the aforementioned revival of Red V-dramon, Master could have a shot. Though, I wouldn't mind them retconning its coloring (it's just a barely noticeably different shade of blue from V-dramon... like you'd have to be comparing both of their D-1 Tamers sprites very closely to even tell). The black V-dramon too, for that matter (it only appeared on one card, which used a 3D model instead of any artwork).

And finally, some theoretical Digimon I'd love to see. There's the remaining Chessmon: KingChessmon (Black), QueenChessmon (White), and RookChessmon (White) (a black BishopChessmon already appeared in Xros Wars). And I'd like them to fill out those remaining Hybrids, at the very least a Fusion form for the Earth, Water, Steel, Wood, and corrupted Dark Spirits (especially that last one; Duskmon and Velgmon were too awesome not to deserve one, and Lowemon and KaiserLeomon can not replace them). From there, a Transcended form for all of them (with KaiserGreymon and MagnaGarurumon thus far being the only ones), and maybe a Child form (in the same vain as Flamon and Strabimon). Also, the remaining none-Ancient versions of the Ancient Digimon (Wisemon was released after AncientWisemon as I recall, so it seems like the others could all have one).
