Stock post message.svg To-do list for Digimon: edit·history·watch·refresh· Updated 2010-05-20


Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Copyedit : Entire article
  • Expand : History, Video games
  • Infobox : Add one.
  • Photo : A screenshot of the anime, etc. would be nice as the article isn't much to look at in its current state.
  • Stubs : Several sections consist of only a "main article" link.
  • Verify : Most of the prose

Notable contributors section[edit]

There's a "notable contributors" section which I have tagged because the topic itself seems to be subjective and staff members who worked on the anime series. It's also unsourced and any "notability" is not established. (Plus, it seems to be a section that only appeals to fans.) I'm open to keeping the section up if it were converted into prose and if it were sourced but for now, I don't see why we need this section. lullabying (talk) 18:56, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 2 December 2018[edit]

Motioning to add Digimon to the "Isekai anime and manga" category. Griff4815 (talk) 14:09, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Not done - My research shows that there is no agreement that Digimon is an isekai. However, you probably know more about this than I do. @Griff4815: If you can find a reliable source identifying it as such, just ping me or write on my talk page and I'd be happy to add the category.

This feels like a blatant copy of Pokémon. Is it? ThePRoGaMErGD (talk) 20:44, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

DIGIMON IS CHINESE NOT JAPANESE! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.167.147.234 (talk) 14:58, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Pokemon and digimon are japanese. I honestly agree with the fact that Digimon is a copy of Pokemon. I have facts to back it up. I don't know if it can prove. Porygon-Z (talk) 18:08, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
They’re not really copies. Digimon was originally basically a variation of Tamagotchi in which you raised virtual monsters and trained them to fight monsters raised by other people. Pokemon was a monster collecting RPG. The animes had key differences as well. Pokemon was about a young boy trying to become the best trainer in the world whereas Digimon involved multiple children being taken to a mysterious world joining with partner Digimon to save the world from evil Digimon that had taken over.--76.67.170.18 (talk) 16:04, 13 September 2020 (UTC)

There is little information shown for the Digimon Collectable Trading Card Game. This is the knowledge I have gained through 21 years of experience with the card games.[edit]

The first Digmon Trading cards released in America were the Exclusive Preview set. They are Collectible Trading cards designed around the Digimon Movies and TV Shows and not part of a Digimon card game. They each bear a silver stamp embossed with “Exclusive Preview”. There are 34 cards to the set, numbered to 50 with missing numbers, and also a checklist card. This set came with a parallel set of holo cards most accurately described as Silver Prism cards. This Silver Prism set contains the same 34 cards with the Silver Stamp and numbering system to 87, That set also includes a special set of 8 different gold stamped Silver Prism cards numbered U1-U8 and these cards also have numbers that fit randomly into the 34 card set numbered to 87. Finally, within the parallel set of Silver Prism cards, there is a special secret set of 100 numbered cards. These cards bare the lettering “1 of 100”, “2 of 100” etc to 100 of 100, located in the white box underneath the Character or Digital Monster’s name. I have seen comment that each of the 34 basic cards has a set of 1 to 100 but I find that exceptionally hard to believe as only about 6 of these cards have surfaced on card selling sites, so I have no proof but cant see how it's possible. These cards were printed on a thicker than normal card stock and the artwork and coloring is sharp and beautiful. Because of the thickness, some cards came out of the packs with a small chip or chips on the front or back edges of the card. Some of the coloring of the cards varied considerably. Cards that contain the color yellow, orange, or red can be any shade of those colors and seeing them together shows a clear and remarkable difference. When you consider that these cards came from booster packs of 6 cards + 1 parallel Silver Prism card + 1 checklist card in a box of 24 packs, a complete set of 34 different Silver Prism cards required the purchase of numerous boxes and quite good luck.

This Exclusive Preview set was followed by the Animated set 1 which included the exact same cards without the Silver Stamp embossed with “ Exclusive Preview”. It also included the holo or Silver Prism set and the special U1-U8 set without stamps, but not the numbered to 100 cards.

After the Animated set 1, there were 12 Digimon the Movie cards that were distributed in movie theaters to attendees.

A second Animated set 2 included entirely different cards and the accompanying holo set of those cards. These may have come out after the Digibattle card game.

Soon afterward, the Digi-Battle Card Game with different sets of playing cards was released in America and most attention turned to that game.

Finally, I believe there was a 3rd Animated set that was released after the Card Game that also contained different cards, but I have little experience with that set. Hutster (talk) 16:31, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

  • @Hutster: You need a reliable source to support that information before we can add it. Since online information is scarce, you can use print media as sources. lullabying (talk) 22:10, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

After a thorough search and a better understanding of the transitions the Bandai company has gone through, I suspect there is no print media in the United States or Japan. If it does exist, it would likely be pre internet in Japanese and would consist mainly of advertisments and small flyers included with individual boxes of booster packs. Actually, these preview cards were the print media designed to maintain interest in the movies and tv shows and the upcoming Digibattle card game. With the new 2020 Japanese digimon card game coming out now, there is renewed interest in the old cards and very little accuracy on sites that include card sales and auctions like Amazon and Ebay. After searching and finding almost nothing on every trading card and company site, I simply offered my knowledge in an effort to provide some accuracy. If actual scans of these cards would help verify the accuracy of my statements, that is possible. ````

creator[edit]

just Bandai is the creator of Digimon. Not Akiyoshi Hongo and Toei Animation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Suckersucker1 (talkcontribs) 19:02, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
