The Digimon franchise has a rich history that started way back in 1997 when it was the subject of a short manga called ‘C’mon Digimon’. Since then, it has had multiple anime series, videos games and card games. Throughout the years, new Digimon have been added to the official reference book, with the latest injections happening throughout 2020 and 2021, when the popularity of the franchise began to rise again.
Agumon – Bond of Bravery & Gabumon – Bond of Friendship
Agumon – Bond of Bravery and Gabumon – Bond of Friendship first appeared in the Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution – Kizuna movie that was released in 2020. These brand new Digivolutions were introduced into the game with the Double Diamond booster that was released in Japan on May 28th, and between October and November for the English version of the Digimon Card Game.
Morphomon & Eosmon
Morphomon and the Eosmon chain also appeared in the Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution – Kizuna movie, with Eosmon becoming the antagonist of the film. Just like the Bond of Friendship cards, these Digimon entered the TCG with the Double Diamond booster.
Baluchimon, Entmon, DanDevimon & Eyesmon
Other Digimon that arrived with the Double Diamond booster for the TCG is Baluchimon and Entmon, who appeared in the franchise within the new Digimon Adventure 2020 reboot. Great Legend brought the sinister DanDevimon, following its debut in episode 24 of the rebooted series. While on the subject of freaky looking Digimon, Eyesmon also appeared in the anime in episode 16. This card will arrive with the Next Adventure set releasing in March for the English game.

Ghostmon, Gogmamon and Gusokumon
Ghostmon first entered the official Digimon reference book on June 22nd, 2020, and floated into the Digimon Card Game with the Great Legend Booster. Gogmamon and Gusokumon also came with this set and debuted in the anime in 2020.
The Pulsemon Chain
The Pulsemon Digivolution chain was introduced to help promote the release of the Vital Bracelet product, which was a fitness orientated game that launched in Japan last year. When it came to the Digimon Card Game, Bandai wasted no time in introducing this chain, with promo cards given to those who preordered the Vital Bracelet.

Junkmon, Machmon, Manticoremon and MarinChimairamon
Junkmon came along in 2020 with the Double Diamond booster, while Machmon appeared in the rebooted series when racing against Garurumon and Matt. Manticoremon and MarinChimairamon are other villains from the Digimon 2020 anime that have already been introduced into the TCG.
Baboongamon is a Digimon that is yet to make a debut in the anime, instead going straight into the Digimon Card Game as well as the virtual pet game. This card only has one variation, which came with the Great Legend booster, but could see further cards and Digivolutions if this Digimon appears in a future anime series.
MetalGreymon: Alterous Mode
MetalGreymon: Alterous Mode was a nice surprise in Episode 16 of the Digimon Adventure reboot, showing a brand new variation of this legendary Digimon.
