ZekeGreymon's artwork looks SO COOL! I'm just kinda sad the OmegaShoutmon is officially a "Perfect/Ultimate" level Digimon, meaning that he will probably be a level 5 card, which really does NOT make sense to me whatsoever. I mean, in the anime he got OMEGAMON'S power to digivolve and yet he evolved into an Ultimate level instead of a Mega level? (Whereas ZekeGreymon, another golden-armored Digimon is Mega level).

I don't know I feel they should have treated Shoutmon the EXACT way as "Hackmon" was treated in Digimon Cyber Sleuth, where he evolved from Rookie straight to Mega and THEN they introduced both BaoHackmon/SaviorHackmon in Digimon Hacker's Memory.

I know about Shoutmon King ver. (Champion) and would've preferred they created a brand new Perfect/Ultimate design for Shoutmon and THAT Digimon then evolves to OmegaShoutmon (Mega) who then fuses with ZekeGreymon to become "Shoutmon DX" IMO.

Wow, I was not expecting the XW Greymon line to be Red. I guess it kinda makes sense since Shoutmon DX is a thing, though I still expected Greymon to be Black tbh.

Now I'm wondering, will we actually have the full line in this Set or is ZekeGreymon merely here to substitute WarGreymon in the Agumon line. :unsure:

I personally don't think so, because we've seen Metal Garurumon today. It would be weird not to have War Greymon alongside with its whole line. Though this doesn't mean we'll certainly get Xross Wars Greymon and the others.

ZekeGreymon
[When Digivolved] this digimon gains <Haste>
Inherited Effect: [Your Turn] When this Digimon attacks while it has <Haste>, it can attack your opponent's unsuspended Digimon

idk what the keyword will wind up being when it's localized so I'm using "haste" but it means "this Digimon can attack the turn it's played" which they normally can't do

I'm kind of glad I slept in super late, I really don't care for any of the Xros Wars Greymon line. Honestly they're probably some of my least favorite digimon all around

check out the other news thread with the VB magazine scans. Omega Shoutmon is Lv. 6

@SparkGold That's Shoutmon DX and it can evolve from a Lv. 5 and Lv. 6, basically confirming OmegaShoutmon's Lv.

Uhh... Not quite. Seeing several different sources saying that ZekeGreymon and Shoutmon DX have Blitz, which is a keyword we knew was going to be introduced in this set via a preview in Fun DigiCa, and it essentially is a weaker version of Chaosmon's skill from BT-4, it allows you to attack on Digivolution even if the Memory passes to your opponent's side, but unlike Chaosmon it's just a standard attack, it doesn't make the user Active or allow it to attack Active Digimon, which coincidentally ZekeGreymon enables as an Inheritable Skill.

Just think it's very important to point this out since Haste/Rush is a very functionally different Keyword then Blitz is given one revolves around being Played and the other is Evolution-based.

Okay, gonna need to clear some things up here because the throwing around of unofficial fan terms seems to be confusing people.

  • What BushiAgumon and Darkdramon have is "速攻" which literally translates as "Swift/Quick Attack" which is the one whereby a Digimon can attack the Turn it is Played (so long as it's still your Turn).
  • What ZekeGreymon and Shoutmon DX have is "進撃" which means "An Advance/Charge" (as in the military sense) which allows the Digimon to attack (assuming it doesn't have Summoning Sickness) even if the Opponent's Memory has reached 1 or higher.
Hopefully this should all be settled once the ENG localisation has caught up with all the new Keywords and we'll have official terms to use.

I quite like them. Greymon (Gun) is one of the better takes on Movie Greymon (still by far its best design), Metalgreymon is cool (kibble aside arguably but it's not too egregious), and Zekegreymon is one of the coolest fucking Ultimate Greymons there is. The fact that until Adventure: the only Ultimate Greymons which are actually as large as the previous forms are Shine and Zeek bothers me, especially when shit like Wargreymon is a design regression from Metalgreymon. (Which is fine, I guess, Metalgreymon can evolve into whatever the fuck it wants, but I'm not a fan.)

That was just for those games, though? Hackmon was introduced in Digimon Collectors, which predates Cyber Sleuth by at least a year, and both BaoHackmon and SaviorHackmon predated the release of the original Cyber Sleuth as well. BaoHackmon was introduced at the end of Collectors, and SaviorHackmon was revealed alongside Jesmon, for the Digivice Version 15th.

So, unlike Shoutmon, Hackmon has always had interim forms, and we didn’t get Jesmon until afterward.
I agree with you, mind, I’m also annoyed that OmniShoutmon is Ultimate and not Mega...but his situation isn’t even remotely the same as Hackmon.

Great artwork.
I like Zeke because you don't always need to be one of WarGreymon's subspecies to be a beast.

Just saw the translation for Shoutmon DX. I'm pretty sure the intended effect is to add any red card onto Shoutmon DX's pre-evolutions, as a gimmick of it fusing with other Digimon.
So, if you add another ZekeGreymon from your hand it will go below Shoutmon DX, not on top of it.

What's happening is that Shoutmon DX is Evolving from another Shoutmon DX whose ability kicks in and you place a ZekeGreymon "at the top of the Evolution Sources" thus putting it above the previous Shoutmon DX, so to the unaware observer it looks like DX has evolved from ZekeGreymon. Then rinse and repeat the formula.

That said, while theoretically "legal", I don't really see the point in doing that over and over again. Just seems like a terrible waste of time and Memory resource. :unsure:
