Does it emphasize your point? I thought that you brought Piyomon up as an example of why they should have told us why that specific Piyomon (or whatever partner Digimon) was selected. I was pointing out that that was only an issue with the 02 kids' partners, and we had our explanation for why they were chosen (with the exception of Wormmon, who may have been either selected or created).Regarding Biyomon, that actually emphasizes my point. She was created to be Sora's partner and so on and so forth.
It wasn't a random choice, but a purposeful one. The same with the 02 Team being partnered with Ancient Species of Digimon capable of Armor Evolution.
I mean, reality is always what dictates what happens in the series, whether it makes sense in-universe or not. The real problem with Adventure is its slipshod writing.I know it's a Shonen anime, but in universe that explanation doesn't work. The characters aren't aware of us as an audience purchasing merchandise. As such, the in universe explanation has to serve a purpose in so far as world building is concerned.
That's why I brought up the fact that we don't know what is required to create a Crest. Crests may not have been created for other children because that wasn't possible. And I do think that without the physical Crests the Chosen Children would not have been able to unlock their potential in the first place. If they could, why bother to make the Crests at all?Homeostatis elected this group of Chosen Children to be distinct from all other Chosen Children. A group apart from all others.
Just to be clear, your opinion is that Ken's Crest should have been dealt with more thoroughly, and that's within the scope of this thread (though I'm not sure if it qualifies as an unpopular opinion); my only issue as a staff member is when you start writing fan fiction around it. We have other threads for that.As to Ken, that's an interesting point, which is why I keep beating the dead horse that is Ken and D3/Kizuna Digivice. Not to discuss that further, but it somewhat reminds me of what they did with Super Sentai in the dub. Rita possessing a power coin which she wields in creating the Green Ranger. Perhaps something similar happens with Ken. He was always meant to be called, but his Crest was stolen by those who inhabited the Dark Ocean. I don't have a decent headcanon for it, but this is why it bothers me that Ken having a Crest gets overlooked so quickly. Oh yeah, he just so happens to have a Crest...let's just ignore it, because we're never going back to it. Ken deserved more as did we the audience.
