oh my god marcus damon is the most annoying character i’ve ever come across in the entirety of digimon.. i really hope he gets a fucking attitude adjustment soon because i’ll go insane if I have to sit through another 40 episodes of him being a self-entitled douche
what happens to the Digimon when their partner dies
that guy in Digimon Adventure 02 was the only one shown
buuut he didn’t exactly die so I can’t really count that
not to mention that it wasn’t shown what happened to his Digimon partner
There was one episode(#33?) where Miyako/Yolei left for a field trip and she entrusted Koushiro/Izzy with looking after Poromon(or his baby form?). When Izzy notices Poromon lethargic behavior Minomon explained that being in the real world is draining. I’m not sure if this would count as either a plot hole or an establishing difference between the 02 partners and adventure mon sense Gato and Pata had no such issues. Though the weakening could help handwave why Myotismon kept whipping their butts so consistently throughout his arc.(aside from also boosted by night or just plain ol’ plot fatigue)
Another thing he mentioned was that Poromon’s tiredness was also due to being away from Yolei/Miyako. (In this case a few days?) It’s due to this part that I’m assuming that Digimon partners eventually/or possibly immediately perma-die alongside their human partners. It may not be too farfetched sense the partner’s in the first two seasons seem to feel(at least to me) more like extensions of their human counterparts. (Like a conscience, or an entity of reassurance?)
It’s interesting that Oikawa’s partner isn’t shown again after the man’s sacrifice. (May have to double check this?) But it may help support my theory. Another thing to note is that after all these years Datirimon/Pipimon still has no official evo-line. (One would think they’d throw him some of the conventional plant-based mon based on his appearance.) Which may or may not be morbidly suggestive of the little guy’s ultimate fate.
Either that, or he immediately got partnered with someone else when Digimon partnership started becoming more common on Earth. A Partner Digimon could be just as likely to just leave earth altogether after their partner passes away sense there doesn’t seem to actually be a limit to how big the DigiWorld is. *Shrug* Sorry about rambling like this.
