Jyger’s Favourite 5 – 5 Favourite Rookie-Level Digimon

Y’know what I’ve researched a lot lately, considering how long it’s been since I last did so? Digimon. lol Welcome back, I am looking at my 5 Favourite Rookie-Level Digimon. Same rules apply as last time, plus I should add that redesigns are counted along with the Digimon posted. So, if Agumon appears on this list, I mean both the original, the 2006 redesign, and the one from Re:Digitize…So, speaking of whom…lol

#1 – Agumon

Basically Digimon’s answer to Pikachu, Agumon is the mascot for Digimon. What was smart, however, is that he wasn’t over-exposed in the anime. He actually spent quite some time off of it before coming back for Data Squad with a fresh new look and attitude. He’s also frequently been one of the first Partner Digimon in a lot of the games, as he’s able to Digivolve into a wide array of Digimon, though obviously, the most notable of these is the Greymon family line. His finisher is a giant fireball he spits out of his mouth called Pepper Breath.

#2 – Gomamon

Who didn’t love this guy, honestly? Gomamon may not have the most useful of attacks, his trademark one being the ability to call his Marching Fishes to attack foes or ferry people across the ocean, but he’s got a never-say-die attitude that’ll cause him to throw himself at enemies with everything he’s got. Plus, he’s got an optimism and sense of humour that just makes him a ton of fun to have around.

#3 – Guilmon

I can actually do a pretty good Guilmon impression, just throwing it out there. lol Originally designed to be an improvement of Agumon in every way, though I’m not so sure if he ever really got there. Despite being a Virus-type Digimon, he’s actually a very kind and peaceful Digimon, protecting his friends with his Hazard Claw attack, and his finishing manoeuvre, the Pyro Sphere.

#4 – Biyomon

Biyomon pretty much IS the bird Digimon archetype. She (or he, in some versions) can Digivolve into most of the popular and powerful birds out there. But, on her own, she’s pretty tough and supportive of her friends, protecting the weak and innocent with her Spiral Twister technique, which shoots a spinning green flame at foes foolish enough to become oppressive in her presence.

#5 – Gaomon

I’m sorry, Gabumon! I wanted you on the list, but Gaomon JUST edged you out, so I guess Gabumon can be considered #6. On his own, he’s a skilled boxer, taking down opponents with his Gao Rush, Rolling Upper, and Double Backhand attacks. In addition, he can Digivolve into many beast Digimon, including the Gaogamon and Garurumon family lines. He’s also extremely loyal to his friends and allies, and even if they sometimes annoy him, he will not hesitate to give a black eye to anyone who threatens them.

So, those are my favourite Rookies, and next time, we will be Digivolving into Champions. Ja né!

New Pokémon Names Revealed And So Much More! – It’s Evaluating Time!

…Well, that didn’t take long. lol Roll it!

Well, tons of new info, so let’s get to it!

It’s Naked-Friday Evaluating Time! 😉

So, let’s start with the starters. lol

Kalos Starters Evolved

Quilladin, Braixen, and Frogadier

Quilladin’s body is far harder, sturdier, and pricklier than Chespin‘s, able to put up a stronger defence, though it tends to avoid battle. Braixen no longer eats branches as it did as Fennekin, instead keeping one in its tail, which it seems to use almost like a wand of some sort for attacks, lending proof to the theory that it might evolve into a Psychic-type. When Froakie evolves into Frogadier, its leaping abilities become far more potent, allowing it to bounce off ceilings, walls, branches, and anything else around it to confound opponents. All three of these evolved Pokémon remain their original types and do not gain any secondary types, though their unique characteristics seem to suggest they may yet pick them up upon evolving.


Furfrou is a Normal-type Poodle Pokémon, which already gives it immediate distrust for me. lol Supposedly, a Furfrou once guarded the ancient King of the Kalos Region. The main attraction to Furfrou is that grooming it actually changes its form, which I’m guessing has some sort of additional effect. Its Ability is Fur Coat, which halves the damage done by Physical Attacks, and I gotta believe that’s gonna give it a much-needed edge against hard-hitting Fighting-types.


Tyrunt is one of the two new Fossil Pokémon, and it’s pretty much the one we’ve all been waiting on…

Sorry, had to. 😉 Anyway, it’s a Rock/Dragon-type, and is known to take fits when it doesn’t like something. It knows moves like Crunch and Dragon Tail, and has the Ability Strong Jaw, which increases the power of biting moves like Crunch and Ice Fang. This is the one I’m picking, no question.


And this is the one N. Harmonik and DorkynProudofit are getting. lol Yeah, I know, Amaura looks like a brachiosaur in My Little Pony, but take a second and look at its Ability. Refrigerate causes all of its Normal-type moves to become Ice-type. Amaura is a Rock/Ice-type Pokémon. Can you see where this is going? Yep, this thing, when it evolves, is gonna be throwing Ice-type Hyper Beams. Dragons, birds, and Grass-types, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.

Female Pyroar

I already covered Pyroar, and I don’t think there’s anything new here, other than the gender difference. Still, glad to see they’re incorporating those again, after Generation V only had a couple…Although, am I the only one who thinks female Pyroar looks like Pidgeot? o.O

Meowstic Female and Male

Meowstic Female and Male

Meowstic, however, DO have more gender differences than just appearance. These Psychic-types have two distinct roles between the two: The male is more focused on the support role, while the female attacks. Their psychic powers usually keep their ears shut, and they tend not to be all that emotional to their Trainers. Their Ability can be either Keen Eye or Infiltrator.

Mega Garchomp

I already mentioned Mega Garchomp, but new info suggests that, while it gains considerable Attack and Special Attack, it loses Speed. So, I guess it’s really up to the Trainer, do you want a harder hitting Garchomp, or a swift Garchomp? I’m glad those kinds of Mega Evolutions exist, as they can be used to adapt to different situations.

As reported earlier, you can in fact change your character’s appearance, from your outfit to your hair colour and style, at the Boutiques found around Kalos. This allows you to fully customise your character, which is something we’ve wanted for so long and only really got in Pokémon Battle Revolution, which was seven years ago. Also, apparently you can record a 10 second video for your Trainer for when you meet other people in the Pokémon Search System, and can customise their profile.

Mable, Celosia, Bryony, and Aliana

There’s been some new info on Team Flare. Apparently, among their ranks, are a group of scientists that I’m going to assume are also fashion models of some sort…I’m not here to judge. lol Anyway, the purple-haired woman is Celosia, the orange-haired woman is Aliana, the green-haired woman is Bryony, and the blue-haired woman is Mable. Apparently, they want to make the world beautiful, and are engaged in deeds such as selling Pokémon and fossils for profit.

Finally, some additional news, regarding alterations to gameplay. Ghost-type Pokémon are no longer affected by moves that prevent fleeing from battle, like Mean Look, Grass-types can’t be seeded (I thought they couldn’t already?), or affected by Powder moves (SleepPowder, Stun Spore, etc.), and Paralysis doesn’t work on Electric-types anymore. Can’t really complain with these, since they all kinda make sense from a logical standpoint.

Anyway, that’s it for now, but since we’re in the last month until Pokémon X & Y come out, I wouldn’t be surprised if tons more info is unveiled soon. Ja né!

Jyger’s Favourite 5 – 5 Favourite Mega-level Digimon

Y’know what I haven’t talked too much about? Digimon. I loved Digimon as a kid, and apparently the dub for the newest series, Digimon Fusion, is supposed to be pretty good. And that got me thinking about some of my favourites. So, I thought I’d count off 5 of my favourite Mega-level Digimon, the highest-evolved of all Digimon, to start with, and then do some of the other levels as I go along. You’re going to have to forgive me if I go back and forth between English and Japanese terminology, but I will try to keep the names to their English translated versions. Also, to keep things fair, I’m gonna try to limit this to one per family line (in other words, only one from the Greymon line, one from the Garurumon line, etc.). They can of course Digivolve from the same Digimon, that’s fine, but I don’t wanna double up on Greymons. Speaking of which, let’s start with…

Agumon Warp Shinka!VictoryGreymon!

Yeah, I bet you were expecting someone slightly different, but to be honest, I kinda find VictoryGreymon to be WarGreymon on steroids, and his sword, the Dramon Breaker, has longer range than WarGreymon’s claws. His ultimate attack is the Trident Gaia, where his sword is split and inserted into his gauntlets, then charges up all the atmospheric energy into them and fires it in a massive blast.

Gaomon Warp Shinka!ZeedGarurumon!

Yeah, probably noticing a bit of a Digimon Next trend here. lol Anyway, ZeedGarurumon trades in MetalGarurumon’s wings for a super dreadnought-class weapon mounted onto his back, the Zeed Cannon, as well as the upgraded laser-targetters on his nose, which allow ZeedGarurumon to lock-on to hundreds of targets at once. When that’s not enough, however, he can lock-on and fire all weapons using the Full Metal Blaze technique.

Patamon Warp Shinka!Seraphimon!


Gatomon Warp Shinka!Ophanimon!

I really couldn’t do either of these two without the other, honestly, so I’m calling it a draw for #3. Call it a cop-out, but they’re both equally powerful, equally awesome-looking, and are both Celestial Digimon. Ophanimon dispatches foes with her Eden’s Javelin, and can finish off enemies with her final attack, the Sefirot Crystal. Seraphimon fells opponents with the holy sword Excalibur, generated from his forearm, and dispenses of evil with his greatest technique, the Strike of the Seven Stars.

Monodramon Warp Shinka!Justimon!

…So when IS a mon Justimon? lol Anyway, how could I possibly avoid mentioning the walking reference to the fourth Kamen Rider, Riderman? Justimon has multiple equippable arms that allow him to do different attacks, like the giant steel Accel Arm letting him use the Thunderclap attack. When all else fails, he uses the Justice Kick, his finishing move that lets him kick with the pulverizing force of 45 tons.

Veemon Warp Shinka!UlforceVeedramon!

Why couldn’t we have gotten UlforceVeedramon in Digimon Adventure 02? We had to settle for Imperialdramon, who I swear had probably the lowest power levels I’ve ever seen out of a Mega-level Digimon. Meanwhile, in the manga, we had UlforceVeedramon, one of the Royal Knights, and carrier of the Ulforce. He attacks with his Ulforce Saber, a beam-sword that can cut through virtually anything, and blast opponents away with his finishing blow, The Ray of Victory.

Anyhow, that’s it for my look at the Mega-level Digimon. Next time, we’ll scale down a bit and go back to being Rookies. Ja né!
