Well I guess you might be right. Probably the way I used the term "plotholes" too vaguely. Personally I think too much analysis on "plotholes" may get me more confused and lot of these things may never be totally answeredOut of all of those, only number 6 is actually arguably a plot hole.
The rest are either not plot holes, or were explained in the show.
1- It was explained internal to the story it was told in. The character not showing up again isn't a plot hole.
2- He was defeated and banished. That he swore to return and didn't doesn't make it a plot hole.
3- The show muses on it being due to his unique creation, even among the other spire Digimon. Suggesting an answer, while not telling us for a fact isn't a plot hole. We know his creation was unique, and the show itself discusses this uniqueness, along with the fact that he is different.
4- This... is entirely explained. There is nothing unexplained about it in fact.
5- There being more agents isn't a plot hole. Gennai being the only one for a long time was based on the events happening. More eventually being made/popping up isn't inherently odd. It would have been 'nice' if we got a solid explanation of it, but the explanation that Gennai gives in Adventure still tends to stick about them being digital lifeforms that aren't Digimon.
6- This is the one that's arguably a plot hole, minus that the franchise itself, both before and after, has shown the idea of connections creating miracles that aren't 'supposed' to have an explanation.
As for Taichi having a D-Terminal, that's not really a plot hole. Mistakes happen, or they simply decided that giving him one for when he had it allowed them to move the plot forward in an easier way.
This was 100% the case. It was one of those early 00's personal schedule things. It's weird how they had the exact aesthetic as the D3s though.Didn't the D-Terminals originate in the human world? There was never any indication that they were native to the Digital World, even if they were compatible with things like the Digimentals. It's implied by Qinglongmon when he says, "However, there was something we had not anticipated. You had a device that saved the Digimental's information. With that, you were not limited to one Digimental."

Both of you are correct, however sometimes the D-Terminal is shown to be created directly from the Digital World. When V-mon first armor evolved to Fladramon, Daisuke's D-Terminal is born out of light from the Digital World-spawned D3.This was 100% the case. It was one of those early 00's personal schedule things. It's weird how they had the exact aesthetic as the D3s though.
My take on it was also that the D-Terminal could have been already in his pocket at that point. Quite a while ago Garmmon translated a section about the D-terminal from the Digimon animation chronicle (It seems I requested it actually even though I can't remember it... *feels old*) and the only information about their origin was "after the incident 3 years ago, when Odaiba had been restored to normal, these wireless mail terminals were distributed to the children for testing. It was modified further by Koushirou and Miyako. "...which is still not saying much of anything but at least provides a time frame.I guess that scene is vague enough to get that interpretation but I've always seen that as the D3 transferring the Digi-Egg of Courage to the D-Terminal
1. The dark ocean is a parallel world that exist along side the Digital World, Dagomon is the ruler of that ocean. That was explained in episode 13, and a few others, including the last episode when Yolei ask what it was.To name a few:
1) Dark Ocean & Dagomon. Never really explained
2) Daemon and his goals. He wasn't defeated and sent to Dark Ocean and never heard again
3) Blackwargreymon. He was made of dark towers like many other digimon but only he had distinct personality and disobeyed Arukenimon's commands
4) Malomyotismon. How did he keep coming back??
5)Gennai from old man to young man from Adenture to 02 with many other agents suddenly showed up(who were thought to be killed by Dark Masters in Season 1)
6) continuity stuff e.g. how did Tai managed to get Agumon in Ep1 when the gate was thought closed...and he had the digi PSP thing before 02 kids received theirs.
Erasing data means a destruction of the data, not so much wrapping it up and locking it in a cupboard. There's a lot of talk in digimon lore or digimon bios about obliteration of data vs. sealing them away elsewhere like the Dark Area. They seem like two completely different things. Also considering for it to be Devimon's data and it being evil to the extent it was shown in 02 requires said data to on some level be consciously aware of the events that took place, but most digimon when deleted - as Devimon clearly was - lose all memory of their former life from before they were deleted. This isn't the case with digimon being sealed away. There'd also be the idea of Anubimon getting involved if it was the Dark Area.He was sort of both. He was erased from the Digital World, but his data remained sealed away in the Dark World.
They aren't. Per Anubismon's fluff, death/deletion is just a step in the process, then him transmitting their text-unspecified remains (their souls, because Hell and all that jazz) (like how Myotismon and Wizardmon both lingered as spirits) there.here's a lot of talk in digimon lore or digimon bios about obliteration of data vs. sealing them away elsewhere like the Dark Area. They seem like two completely different things.
But the profiles don't directly refer to adventure. And more importantly even if we could trust the exact terminology (which I doubt) the more important question is if we can trust the characters. Take a look at episode 2. The partner Digimon attempt to explain evolution to their partners but it becomes very clear that they don't really know what they are talking about. They admit that it doesn't make sense to them. And it just keeps going. Tentomon doesn't have a grasp on the difference between digital and electric, Patamon doesn't know if devolving is even possible, Piyomon completely overestimates her flying abilities, Palmon knows the word photosynthesis but has no idea what it actually means (clearly a biting satire of unfocused research and half knowledge in the information age). In other words those characters are not reliable sources of information about anything. So when Angemon uses the word "erase" would he even aware of the exact meaning that word has in the lore? Can we be sure that he's using it "correctly"? I don't think so. He's not a character like Gennai or post-adventure Koushiro (In adventure even he still relies mostly on guesswork) who can be said to be well acquainted with the way the digital world works.Erasing data means a destruction of the data, not so much wrapping it up and locking it in a cupboard. There's a lot of talk in digimon lore or digimon bios about obliteration of data vs. sealing them away elsewhere like the Dark Area.
Again, this is not something that was ever proven true for Adventure (It's true for Savers but that doesn't really matter). Wormmon died and didn't lose his memories. Etemon died and didn't lose his memories. Leomon died and seemed perfectly familiar with the chosen when he popped back up in tri. Only the big Reboot in tri deleted memories, and even that didn't stick.Also considering for it to be Devimon's data and it being evil to the extent it was shown in 02 requires said data to on some level be consciously aware of the events that took place, but most digimon when deleted - as Devimon clearly was - lose all memory of their former life from before they were deleted.
Often? I honestly don't remember a single instance of this explicitly happening. The Chosen have ways to purify, like the light of their digivices, or Hikari's powers or physically destroying evil influences like the gears or rings but all those methods are non-lethal. If they just straight up murder someone I don't think we've ever been shown that it's any more purifying than getting murdered by anything else.When they're deleted by Chosen, they're often purified of the evil and start fresh.
The only instant transmission we've seen directly was Angemon and in that case it's questionable whether or not he even "properly" died. Leomon didn't seem to be in a hurry to come back. Wormmon was pretty fast but then again we don't exactly know how many days passed.Also, coming back as a digiegg seems to be fairly instant.
Then your research is lacking. Sealing evil away is the purpose of the dark area but it's very clear that it completely fails at fulfilling it. Just look at all the Dark Area Digimon in all those different continuities walking around in the normal digital world and causing trouble. Because in a narrative sense the dark area is the exact opposite of what you say. It exists to leak out evil, to be a convenient storage for villains to pop out from. The franchise can't allow it to be effective just like it will never allow groups like the Holy Beasts and the Royal Knights to do their jobs properly.If they're sealed in the Dark Area, they're there for good from my research.
