Like i said, summoning their alternate form to attack the enemy. the ultimates did it with their megas before
Oh yeah, that did happen. but, he revived like 30 episodes later and got killed/absorbed by magnaangemon and now just chills inside him and they talk sometimes and i guess can come out if he feels like it. theyre friends now
No wargreymon didnt kill devimon he didnt even fight him, angemon absorbed him inside himself
As for skullknigtmon its like when the others summoned their mega forms before actually evolving to them to kill the enemy
[[Digimon Ghost Game]]
And what thign about devimon and SKmon
They originally said it was 66 actually, then added one more this month so mustve realised they needed 1 extra episode.
Also no, the week after episode 67 the new anime starts.
Akiyoshi hongo is credited on *every single* piece of digimon media from anime to games to cards to toys in every country worldwide. he does not exist. its just who gets credited on *everything*
> Though that still doesn't explain why the Digidestined (in some episodes) act as if their parents don't know about Digimon, when they clearly found out about them and their adventures in the Myotismon arc, set before the fight with the Dark Masters. Izzy's mother does mention Tentomon later, but still.
I think it's more they didnt want to tell their parents the digimon are back cuz then the parents would try to stop them etc
And as Tri goes, how Machinedramon gets revived, if he didn't die in this timeline and lives on as part of Cyberdramon in Tamers. (How does that work anyway? Tamers gives an explicit origin to the creation of its Digimon and establishes Adventure to be a TV series in its universe, unless Ryo was its writer or something basing it off events from another universe/digital world).
We can only assume cyberdramon no longer exists due to him splitting apart to free devimon and machinedramon. ryo isnt even mentioned in any of the tamers sequels (drama cds) after runaway locomon so he legit may no longer have cyberdramon any more
And adventure being a tv show, but actually existing in the first place, just means its not a *fictional* tv show like the characters thought when first seeing it. someone recorded tai and friends adventures then broadcast it in another universe (gennai i guess?)
And the timeline would diverge just after wargreymon kills machinedramon as it was stated kimeramon fused with machinedramon as he was dying (so hat means his corpse was on the floor i guess and he hadn't fully died just yet to wargreymons claws. then the main cast leave and kimeramon shows up after having time travelled *just* before magnamon killed him to avoid dying)
And tho there would indeed be a universe/timline where machinedramon was perma dead and never became milleniummon we have never seen this timeline itself as we shifted to the one created when kimeramon went back in time. he then fused with machinedramon, became milleniummon, and then returned to timeline he originally came from which is now technically an alternate timeline. so a dark master machinedramon actually could be revived because the one tai and friends originally killed in their timeline was still dead as the machinedramon kimeramon fused with was from an alternate timeline even though it was *technically* the same machinedramon. so whilst the millieniummon version is technically ryo's cyberdramon I guess the machinedramon used to create it wasnt the one from the timeline kimeramon was in as he got machinedramon from the alt timeline when he time travelled with the intention of fusing with it. so yeah, they actually *could* resurrect the one in the timeline kimeramon *didnt* fuse with as its data was still there. i never thought it of this way until now.
Writing staff means little, if the writers dont wanna tell the story bandai want theyll fire them and hire someone who will. canon is canon
> And also, how would Machinedramon have survived long enough to fuse with Kimeramon anyway since we saw him completely disintegrate onscreen...
Because kimeramon time travelled just as he died, so techincally didnt die and insetad time travelled to the past and fused with machiendramon. this created a second timeline
> Also, if I haven't mentioned the Kimeramon thing already, the Kimeramon that became Millenniumon can't be the same Kimeramon who contains the spirit of Devimon because apparently, Millenniumon is the one who turned Ken evil in the first place, and then Ken went on to create Kimeramon... that game introduces so many inconsistencies.
Time travel sure fucks shit up. alt timeline created from tome travel though is what happened. like how in danny phantom evil danny from the future time travelled to the past and then tried to turn himself evil to make sure he was still evil in the future (as others had time travelled to try and stop him)
Time travel fucks shit up and dont forget milleniummon is shown in a flashback in 02
Damemon, lord bagra, and axeknightmon are revived in hunters seems like you should just watch it lol, its subbed on crunchyroll. tbh its a lot of filler and not that good but at least youll have seen all of fusion/XW then since a lot of what you said ended up happening in hunters.
As for adventure every dead digimon was revived in tri so no one is perma dead (plus devimon, machinedramon, and kimeramon are part of ryos cyberdramon anyway so technically are alive as cyberdramon)
Well madleomon at least is obvioulsy zombie leomon so his design in general was just given to them. as for bad guys being revived and now theyre good and were good all along is just standard kid show stuff
In japan XW was split into three seasons. the original, Death Generals (Dark Generals in Engilsh), and Hunters.
It was specifically stated that was written as a one off episode to have mystery
Hunters is the third season of digimon fusion that went undubbed. the one with gumdramon and tagiru
There are no aborted arcs as far as im aware
And no, the guys that did 2020 did hunters. I forgot to mention that one. they were from pokemon, then did hunters and now 2020
He still has publishers though if they dont like something, tell him to remove it, and hes say no then theyll just refuse to publish his manga. plus when they make games or the anime and decide they need a filler villain they always get him to design them and he does cuz theyre his boss
The tri writing staff, at the least, were not the same as the ones from adventure through to frontier (as the vast majority did the first 4 seasons then got phased out in data squad, then fusion ended up with most of the original guys again) so in 1-6 data squad was the main one without. they were brought back for kizuna
The main storylines are still all chosen before hand though but as seen with konaka he was able to change impmon to guilmon (based on that I would assume guilmon wouldve been the one to kill leomon and galalntmon most likley wouldn't exist with a more hoeric beelzemon in the royal knights)
Not everything is 100% though konaka once said he was looking through the list of digimon to choose as kazus partner as that wasn't fully decided yet and he himself chose guardromon. prob didnt matter too much who got used i suppose they just needed someone to get their ass kicked by orochimon and then become kazus partner. the species didnt actually matter
Whatever happens in ghost game, 90% of the show will be known before hand before the writers even get their hands on it its their job to tell the story theyre told and make it work and really most individuality would come from the filler episodes.
I also once remember an interview for Tri. ordinemon and ophanimon falldown mode were always planned to happen as the final boss so the writer was able to be the one to come up with meikos partner which he designed after his own IRL cat. so whislt he himself was responsible for meicoomon even if he didnt exist another writer woudlve also been in charge of making meikos partner who would then fuse with ophanimon FM to become ordinemon. and then no matter what hackmon/jesmon had to play a main role due to being the 15th anniversary digimon. writers play little role in all honesty though the more ballsy ones like konaka were able to swap out guilmon/impmon tho i doubt it even really changed anything plot wise guilmon would just kill leomon instead
It wouldn't really be confirmable. just whoever the main people in charge are and that isnt even the same every time. like, we know the main producer of the games is habu but if someone higher up in bandai tell him to do something he wont have much choice. so hes the main guy in charge of games, but then of course he himself has a boss too. like with digimon itself there'll be a lot of cooks in the kitchen who tell the writers and so forth what to do.
And yes the bosses in charge would decide who the villains are. its no coincidence that whenever a monster showed up in 2020 as a villain there was a product at the same time with said monster. when the pendulum z was in pre orders a lot of their digimon were in episodes to get you to pre order. then they stopped showing up for a few weeks, then the pen z 2 guys showed up when you could pre order that. and then when metalgreymon evolved to blitzgreymon... there was literally a blitzgreymon starter deck that came out that week. bandai will shoehorn shit in to sell products even if it is an inappropriate time to do so because they gotta sell products.
In tamers even with konaka being head writer he was told, and had no choice, that ryo would be a main character and so was forced with the other writers to come up with storylines for him. they do appear to have some freedom but its more in the sense of "okay, episode 10 will have this monster show up because the same week its part of the next trading card set. please make a filler episode about this monster".
The plot itself is already carried out. for 2020 specifically the digivice: toy that came out just before the show aired spoiled who the final boss was nearly 2 years ago and the bosses have been fought in the same exact order as the vpets themselves. for 2020 at least they havent had much freedom it would just be, for a recent one, "this filler episode we want to feature skullbaluchimon please make an episode about it". the vpet even had blitz, cres, and pegausmon in it. the only surprises were alterous mode, sagittious mode, and ponchomon. ponchomon was weird in the fact that it hasnt even been featured in any recent products.... other than digimon new century (chinese game) who added ponchomon as playable around the same time, I wonder if that episode was meant to be for china...
And a lot of the time an episode features someone that just got added to rearise
Its basically just "this is the story, come up with something to get us from A to B but also we need certain monsters featured in certain episodes".
As for who's in charge of all that... whoever bandai/toei put in charge of the digimon product at bandai HQ itll be some nameless suit we dont know. even in the games whilst habu is producer hes more of a spokesperson where if someone above him makes a choice he cant do shit even tho hes meant to be the one "in charge".
And Toriyama will be the same, hes "in charge" of DBZ, but there'll be people ahead of him that can force shit into the story like "hey, this guy in the video game is popular please use him in a future chapter" or "hey, the audience doesn't like this character please kill him off."
The game itself stated keisuke likes erika in that one quest
You were supposed to play cyber sleuth before hackers memory, since HM is the sequel game and will maek a lot less sense without it.
Also how the hell did you get to the final chapter with a party of ultimate digimon?
Akiyoshi hongo doesnt exist hes a made up name as japanese law meant they had to put down one person as creator but three people made digimon
Anyway bandai come up with the story an what monsters will be used and its up to the writers to get there. so like lets say its a filler episode and theyre told to use pulsemon in the episode. theyd just make up the story for that episode. other than that the main plot is decided by bandai before hand. but we know with how konaka got impmon switched with guilmon that some of the writers can convince bandai to change something if theyre convincing enough. so in the reboot for example the staff will have been told the first main villain was argomon followed by devimon/neodevimon/dandevimon and their job is to make a story with these characters in the allotted time and then move onto the next already chosen bad guy. writers have very little impact really most stuff is already given to them "we want this episode to have agumon fighting specific evil monster"
