I know that Brazilian dubs, and probably any dub in Latin America, use the music from the version of the series they are dubbing. Actually, I think America, Canada, and maybe England, are the only Western countries to replace music in dubbing. If we can do it, then how come the richer countries don't have enough budget to license the original soundtrack without almost exhausting the budget!? I think the English licensors have enough budget for this, but for some reason they don't do it. That's what I mean, how come it would be an un-smart decision to license the music in that scenario?
My point was simply that saying "partner" in official materials is a lot faster than saying "one specific Digimon that a select protagonist mostly hangs out with", even if the exact meaning of "partner" changes from iteration to iteration.
Special thanks to WtW:
According to Amazon sales chart, The Digimon season one box set has been in the top ten selling anime, taking the 5th position just after the Miyazaki movies: http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers...thefanrev07-20
More then likely because of this, New Video is planning on releasing season 2 as a box set, which will come out in March.

That's cool. I bought it. If it's cheapish, I'll probably get Adventure 02 as well.
Planning to get both once I get a new debit card since I lost mine at the mall.

Well guys, it looks like we got our new Royal Knight, not too much on him just yet but here's Gankuumon:
The information is a bit fuzzy right now (and I'll be sure to update once it clears up) but here's what I'm getting:
-The new Digimon in the corner is Hackmon and is related to him (maybe a preevolution), the aura in the back also resembles him.
-He's probably related to the 15th anniversary and may appear in Digimon Collectors.
-He has something to do with the "Dragon-Species World."

Update: The summaries have been translated for the two new Digimon courtesy of sirtao:
Gankuumon: "The new Holy Knight appears between the dimensions! An iron fist shaking the Digital World!"
Hackmon: Heir to the Gankumon lineage, a Beast-type Digimon hiding an outstanding sense of combat.

Glad to see a new Royal Knight. Gankuumon looks interesting, but really want to see what's up with that aura/evolution behind him.
A soul that cannot be saved drifts and disappears,
In the instant it vanishes, it shines faintly,
Now, it creates a night with a full moon.
Awesome! I love the Royal Knights! Can't wait for the last one. I'm excited to find out more about him and all this.
So that aura's coming out of his cape, wonder how that works.
Extended trailer for the Digimon Adventure game, not too much new but it includes the crossover and Hackmon/Gankuumon.

Hackmon's stance in the artwork looks familiar.....
Also, Gankuumon reminds me to Marsmon, mainly because both are muscular caped guy with flaming arms.
I just realized. Digimon's been around this long and we finally get something called "Hackmon?"
You'd think this would show up in a series about data programs that constantly make computer references.
Appears between dimensions, eh? Shame they couldn't use this new Digimon, Gankuumon, as the reason the 5 previous protagonists arrived in Digimon Xros Wars: Hunters saga. Man, them and their silly limitations.
Hackmon. All right. Much later than we wished for, but oh well.

Credits to pokefan#493. Thank you very much.
@Griff He also kind of reminds me of bancholeomon due to that cape. Makes for a kind of interesting parallel really considering that all three evolve from beast type digimon and are a part of three different major groups.

Hackmon looks great, but that new Royal Knight doesn't really. I don't know why, but he just seems kinda in-between for now.
How about Digimon matching in Digimon World DS? I need all the eggs I can get and I'm even willing to trade FCs!
I ate my way to the bottom of a bag of Cheetos only to find that it was FULL AGAIN!
Probably not, but if Hackmon isn't the rookie form of the New Royal Knight, then perhaps its the last Royal Knight?
