Test Your Digimon Knowledge: Can You Name These 25 Digimon?
Beginning life in 1997 as an answer to handheld virtual pets like Tamagotchi and Giga Pets, Digimon’s popularity quickly spawned video games, a series of popular anime and films, and manga. While the trend of virtual pets has died down since the late ‘90s, the popularity of Digimon as a franchise has remained. For most fans, the original anime series is still the hallmark representation of the characters.
Following a group of kids transported to a virtual world filled with fantastical creatures, these DigiDestined soon encounter a group of Digimon that bond with them. Though plagued by enemies, the kids learn they can Digivolve their companions with specialized Digivices, Tags, and Crests that temporarily power up the Digimon into more realized forms. Over time, new elements and characters were added to the lore, but the original batch of Digimon from the show’s first few seasons remain the most popular.
So take a trip down memory lane and see if you can name these 25 Digimon!
