Some Digimon can evolve into way more than 3 Digimon as well. So yes it is possible.
Well I didn't say only the anime - I also counted Games, Manga, and official profiles. and yes, it would count as head canon I guess, I was merely giving you suggestions as to how you could do them for your own personal head canons.@Muur
The problem with your approach is that 99% of the digimon don't have an anime evolution line given. So if we only accept anime as canon and the rest filler then you're stuck with Megas with no previous evolution forms. And determining which digimon are filler and which digimon are canon in games based on nothing but your own judgement is unacceptable unless you are some sort of authority in digimon like a direct designer/developer. Which means all "filler" digimon have just as much claim for canonicity as non-filler digimon. Because no official sources said they're filler/non-canon.
I recognize that the games have limited resources which is why they just stick digimon to random evolution lines like dianamon evolving from taomon because crescemon wasn't in the game, or Gatomon digivolving to Examon. And some of the card evos are really weird like Megadramon digivolving into Examon who is supposed to be a fusion of Breakdramon and Slayerdramon. But then you remember that the final forms predate their pre-evolved forms, and no official retcon has been given, so blah blah blah, I came to this forum for opinions
Thanks, I think I'm gonna go with this mindset: "Unless an official retcon is given, all evolution lines are canon"
Theyll have baby forms. Just haven't been assigned one yet. In fact Bokomon is implied to have one as in Dawn/Dusk he wonders why he wasn't reverted to his baby form like everyone else.Canonized evolutions fascinate me. I find it interesting with all the different combinations and such. But what I cannot stand is evolutionary dead beginnings, not ends. I get some things cannot reach ultimate levels, but why do Neamon and Bokomon not have baby II and baby forms? That really bugs me. I can't believe they spontaneously appeared out of a digiegg or into the Digital World as child level Digimon.
Right, it’s all canon so long as it was released by Bandai or Toei.Canon does seem like a loose term, given that they're all technically official media.
If I’m not mistaken Angemon debuted in the second line of v-pets as one of Gabumon’s evolutions and Patamon debuted in the third.Like, little may know that Angemon was initially unrelated to Patamon prior to the anime, Patamon would've normally evolved into Unimon as the default evolution and wouldn't have evolved into Angemon at all, despite both Digimon debutting from the same line of V-Pets (Digital Monster). Wonder if that's why they introduced Pegasusmon later.
Most of the non-Taichi Digimon partners from Adventure came from the pendulum series. (I believe Lillimon was either created for the show or debuted before any of the video games or virtual pets, likewise Pyocomon debuted a few months in the anime before elsewhere but Bandai might of had the character designs already to give to Toei). Angemon being an evolution to Patamon came from Digimon World. (I think Angemon was an evolution for Gabumon in the 2nd v-pet to contrast Agumon’s ability to become Devimon in the first?). HolyAngemon was created for the V-Tamer manga and I believe the anime was the first to make the connection that Angemon>HolyAngemon.The anime tended to be a lot better at streaming evolution lines though. Like I don’t think Saberleomon and MetalEtemon were associated with Leomon or Etemon at all pre-anime.I was looking through this Evolution Predictor for Digimon World the other day, and it seems Patamon was given preferential digivolution to Angemon in this game (which up to that point I thought was a mechanic unique to Next 0rder). I checked some of the other Rookies, and a few of them line up too, though some favour more than two and/or don't match the anime series.
Yeah, the original Digital Monster V-pets were literally just reskins of one-another. In each version, you have a BabyI, a BabyII, a Child with some kind of fire or blast attack (like Agumon and Gabumon), a Child with a pointed attack (representing things like electrical discharges or spikes), two Adults with a fire/blast attack, two Adults with a punch attack, two Adults with a pointed attack, one Adult with a poop attack (any Adult that doesn't share a Child's attack can evolve from either Child), a Perfect with a missile attack (evolved from the first Adult of each pair), a small Perfect with a bomb attack (evolved from the second Adult of each pair), and a Perfect with some kind of heart-shaped attack (as well as one unique attack.... I'm not quite sure how that worked) which evolves from the poop-attacking Adult.(I think Angemon was an evolution for Gabumon in the 2nd v-pet to contrast Agumon’s ability to become Devimon in the first?)
