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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
