Digimon Battle (디지몬RPG Dijimon RPG?, lit. "Digimon RPG") is a unique MMORPG which was released in the U.S. on March 17, 2010 by WeMade Entertainment. The game originated in Korea under the title "Digimon RPG", and was developed by DIGITALIC. The English version of Digimon Battle closed on April 25, 2013. In June 2022, it was announced the game would be re-launched in English later that month, under the name Digimon RPG, but it was soon delayed for an indeterminate period.
To begin the game, choose a starting Tamer and Digimon from the following lists:
On certain occasions, there will be special events where there are other selectable Digimon. These Digimon are:
In the game, there are some special Digimon that may only be obtained by doing events, or having a required amount of something. Those are:
- Beelzemon Blast Mode
- Gallantmon Crimson Mode
- Imperialdramon Dragon Mode
- Imperialdramon Paladin Mode
- Rapidmon (Gold)
- Cherubimon (Good)
Digimon are available starting at the evolution level of In-Training and generally go up to Mega level. There are some Digimon that are exceptions to this though, and currently have Evolution levels available only up to Ultimate. This should be corrected in the future though. You can only capture In-Training Digimon, unless you buy an item in the Korean website to be able to catch higher level Digimon.
There are two methods of capturing Digimon. The first has a very low chance of capturing a Digimon, but is free. During battle, you have three tries to capture a Digimon. All you need to do is select the capture option, then select the Digimon you wish to capture. The other method for capturing is to purchase a net, which can be either bought at the cash shop for Korean Won, or from other players in the game. The net has a 100% chance of capture. All the player must do is right click the net, then left click the Digimon they wish to capture with it.
Players can also can get crests.
Crest of Courage In order to make the Crest of Courage, you must bring Babamon 1 Crest of Friendship(+1),1 Crest of Light(+1)and 1 Crest of Hope(+1).
Crest of Knowledge In order to make the Crest of Knowledge, you must bring Babamon 1 Crest of Friendship(+1),1 Crest of Light(+1)and 1 Crest of Love(+1).
Crest of Honesty In order to make the Crest of Honesty, you must bring Babamon 1 Crest of Hope(+1),1 Crest of Light(+1)and 1 Crest of Purity(+1).
Exceptions to the Rules
In Digimon Battle, every Digimon you can use is given as close to their Digivolution tree as possible, with Digimon like Impmon being given interim Digivolutions, and some others, like Leomon given Digivolutions up to Mega. There are some exceptions though -
- Lopmon has two digivolution trees, one emphasizing Vaccine-type, the other emphasizing Virus-type, to reflect the bi-polar nature of Cherubimon.
- Some Digimon currently don't have a mega form but will have one later.
- Gatomon has the Digimon Tamers: Battle Spirit Ver. 1.5 line, with Ophanimon, rather than the original series incarnation, with Magnadramon.
Battling is done in a turn based style. Players begin with whichever Digimon they have set as their main Digimon out on the field. Each Digimon has a time bar that goes up over time. When the time bar fills, the Tamer may take action with that Digimon.
There are things the Tamer may do to take action during a Digimons turn. A Tamer is able to Card Slash, switch in other Digimon they own, or even evolve their Digimon. A tamer can only slash 3 cards at a time, and are limited to a certain number of slashes per battle.
There are also options in the top right area of the screen that you may select. They are labelled F1, F2, & F3, and those buttons on the keyboard are also the shortcut for putting them on. These are a Digimon's special attacks. Every Digimon you can have has F1 by default. You must level up to be able to use F2 & F3. Each Digivolution has their own special skills.
Card slashes are used for attack bonuses, health increases, and other things such as more defense. You may buy these cards at stores or trade.
Despite this game being made in Korea, there are also many English players on the games. Mostly in Server 1 is where these English players reside, although you can still find some of them in Server 2. Every other player is mostly of the Korean nationality. You may still find some other types of foreign nationalities playing the game.
The game was released in North America on March 14, 2010 as an open beta test, under the title "Digimon Battle". The game has officially transitioned from a beta test to an official launch on April 14, 2010. The game also has an official Youtube channel, which includes videos such as the the game's English trailer.
