Pokemon came before Digimon. The conceptualization of Pokemon predates the conceptualization of Digimon, the game release of Pokemon predates the game release of Digimon, and the anime broadcast date of Pokemon predates the anime film release of Digimon. The Digimon game release happened after the Pokemon anime had started airing. The details: Pokemon was ...

Digimon is like Pokemon where Pokemon is short for Pocket Monsters, that said Digimon is short for Digital Monsters this is visiable in most logos for Digimon Also in the first episode of the 4Kids dub of Digimon Adventure when the Digi-destined come back together after finding their Digimon Partners the Digimon says in unision (after Bukamon jumps off Joe'...

I am incapable of giving a very good answer for this question, but I will try my best. As I have mentioned in my comment, the Digimon series is rebooted every title except for the Adventure series. The reason for this is most likely due to the fact that they feature a ageing cast instead of a Sazae-san type of show, where the characters never age, Pokemon ...

Just like what Memor-X answered: Digimon is like Pokemon where Pokemon is short for Pocket Monsters, that said Digimon is short for Digital Monsters The suffix -mon means monster as what the title also means. Name The name of a Digimon species is usually based on its form, and may be a pun. For example, Hyokomon's name and design are derived from ...

I remember in Digimon Adventure 2 there being a gate between the Digital World and the Real World which has a "corridor" where anything is possible. BlackWarGreymon sacrificed himself to protect the Gate which when Mytoismon tried to break though it from the Real World ended up getting trapped in this corridor because of the seal BlackWarGreymon made, this ...

Toei Animation, the original production company that put out Digimon Adventures, is definitely advertising it as a sequel to the original stories. The release of Digimon Adventure Tri is supposed to be their gift to Digimon fans for the fifteen year anniversary of the ending of the original show. You mention that it seems the public has forgotten past ...

That's an interesting hypothesis, but I don't think it's right. As the Digimon enthusiast will recall, the eggs from which Digimon hatch are called "Digi-Eggs" in English. However, in Japanese, they are called "Digi-Tama" (デジタマ), from which the English is basically directly translated, since tama means "egg", as you pointed out. It seems rather more ...

This is 3 Primary Colors by Tamers, an insert song of Digimon Tamers and the 10th track of Digimon Tamers: Single Best Parade album.

You might actually be referring to the omuraisu (rice omelette) that Tai cooked for himself, his sister Kari, and Koromon in Digimon Adventure Episode 21, around the 8:38 mark. It's possible that you mistook that scene for being a part of the second part of Digimon: The Movie due to the fact that it takes place in the real world and has a similar washed-out ...

Disclaimer: This Q&A is about an ongoing series as of the time of the posting, and future episodes may reveal more on the subject or change the perceptions shown here. Around a decade has passed since the defeat of MaloMyotismon and the restauration of the digi-world. The show did not yet disclose what happened to the 2nd generation digi-destined. It ...

There is no OVA, all you get is a narrated flashback. In season 2 ep 27 Izzy tells the new Digidestined about how the original eight went to the Digital World and spoke with Jeni. Jeni instructed them to, "release the powers that protect the Digital World". This meant releasing the powers of the crests, from within themselves, in order the defeat the ...

Yes, this is a reference to the first movie. The only other time Omnimon makes an appearance is in Digimon Movie 2 Revenge of Diaboromon where he is defeated and gives his power to Imperialdramon Fighter Mode in order to create Imperialdramon Paladin Mode.

It is explained in Digimon Tamers: When a digimon materializes in the real world, it creates protein and other components from the air and nearby matter (exactly how, if it involves nuclear fusion or not, is unclear) to create a body using energy and data from the digital world. The same is true when humans travel to the digital world. Their bodies are ...

As of the first Digimon Tri movie, you would be able to understand everything that goes on if you had only seen the very first season of Digimon Adventures, except for a couple momentary flashbacks involving vague glimpses of the Digimon Adventure 02 Digi-destined, but those flashbacks still make no sense for someone who has seen Digimon Adventure 02 anyways ...

Digivolution is essentially a lot quicker when it forms a bond with a human. Like you said, with a Digivice, a Human could share his or her energy and go about facilitating the same.In the case of wild Digimon, you could consider Digimon to more or less be computer data. Hence, they could constantly download additional data from the environment which would ...

While the in-work name is fictional, it is based off of real products: jelly drinks. More or less, all jelly-type drinks are in a semi-hard bag with a mouth to drink from on the top. And most of these drinks usually serve some health-oriented purpose, quick energy boost, daily vitamin intake, etc. There are many jelly drinks, and one that is very popular (...

Based on the Digivolution wiki, Agumon and Gabumon didn't quite perform a Mega Digivolution - they performed a Warp Digivolution. Warp Digivolution is a digivolution process where a Digimon can reach a higher level directly bypassing any intermediate phases When Tai and Matt were shot with the Angelic Arrows, Agumon and Gabumon wrap digivolved to their ...

What you need to understand is that Digimon are almost biologically the same throughout all the series and thus they should share the same dietary habits as each other despite being from different series. Also, do not treat food in the digital world really as food, they are data. Therefore, when a materialised Digimon eats human food, they can taste it and ...

Great question. I'm not sure, but I can pose a few plausible theories: the supposed battle between Alphamon and the four Digimon 02 cast happened a while before the story of Digimon Tri and the original Digidestined all moved on the producers don't want to spoil what they look like at an older age, so they used such footage it's just a bunch of silhouettes, ...

During the first Tri movie, it's mentioned that it had been a year since the close of the digital gate, and that it had not opened since. If anyone remembers during Adventure 02, the premise was that the loss of the Destiny stones caused the digital world to merge, but BlackWarGreymon sealed the gate. It's at this point that time becomes alternate for ...

Well there is no telling for sure how they can because in Digimon Adventures or Digital Monsters season 2, there is a gate to enter into the digital world and back. And in Digimon Tamers, the Digimon monster that you see Growlmon fight with comes through a vortex somehow, so they probably have many ways. But we will never know for sure if Digimon are real so ...
