Talk:Dark Volumon

From Wikimon


I see the Digimon Xros Wars Digimon Latest Big Picture 2 image has a profile for Dark Volumon. I tried putting it through image translation and it seems to be in-anime but it's still better than nothing (and other Digimon, say the Trailmon variants, also have only in-anime profiles anyways) and this seems to be the only Digimon to get one (as far as I've checked, anyways). Maybe it's worth translating and putting up instead of that empty space Dark Volumon has now? --Blaze Dragon (talk) 10:17, 23 August 2022 (GMT -3)

Absolutely. That would be dope. --Shadow Shinji (talk) 09:09, 23 August 2022 (CDT)
Is the book Japanese? If so, I wouldn't be opposed to it, but only if we can get a proper translation done. --TMS (talk) 15:52, 23 August 2022 (EST)
Korean, it's linked to the main Dark Volumon page in the Image Gallery. I agree we'd need a proper translation, I'm not putting up a machine translation here (especially since the only one I could get wasn't even completely legible). --Blaze Dragon (talk) 17:23, 23 August 2022 (GMT -3)
I'm not sure if we want to include profiles from dubbed/localized material. Currently we don't... with the exception, I guess, of the Chinese profiles for Digimon that debuted in Chinese games. Maybe we should have a separate section for dub profiles? --TMS (talk) 16:27, 23 August 2022 (EST)
I feel like this would fall under the same category of exception as the New Century Digimon since no Japanese or even English profile currently exists. If that changes in the future than we can swap to that but for now the wikis should use whatever profiles are available regardless of language. Chimera-gui (talk) 19:56, 23 August 2022 (CDT)
there's also the dub profiles of citramon and sistermon ciel, but those are also digimon created in non japanese media. so i guess thats the thing. just wanted to point out it wasnt only chinese.Muur (talk) 19:57, 23 August 2022 (CDT)
With nothing else to go with, it's probably worth making an exception here. Digimon Xros Wars Digimon Latest Big Picture is already used as a reference for information in several Xros Wars-related articles, including this one (for Level and Type, in this case), so I don't think it's much more to add a profile, plus it'll have where it comes from anyways. I don't disagree we should prioritize the original version in all possible cases but here we have nothing else and the profile, from what I could get from the machine translation, is consistent with the anime and has nothing out of place. --Blaze Dragon (talk) 22:14, 23 August 2022 (GMT -3)
I totally agree with you Blaze Dragon, if we can make the exceptions with New Century and so on, why not here as well, especially with Digimon that normally are not in the spotlight like Dark Volumon. Any piece of information is more than precious. If anyone is able to get the profile, please let the rest know! --Shadow Shinji (talk) 07:32, 28 August 2022 (CDT)
its not like we have agumons new century profile or anything.Muur (talk) 14:32, 28 August 2022 (CDT)
True, because Agumon has already hundreds of different profiles from so many different sources, so far. Dark Volumon has only one, this one. --Shadow Shinji (talk) 14:36, 28 August 2022 (CDT)
