Digivolution Guide – Digimon Next Order
Digimon have a set lifespan in the game, usually around 20 in-game days or so. Within this lifespan, it is your goal to evolve them as much as possible to have them as strong as you can before their lifespan ends and they revert to egg form.
There are six stages of evolution that CAN be done, but you won’t always be able to achieve all six. These are:
- In-Training 1
- In-Training 2
How to Digivolve
As your Digimon ages in-game and increases its stats it will move from one stage to another, but this is dependent on meeting some key criteria. One of which is having the correct stats, these can be any stats from the following:
- Key Digi
The difficult part is the stats necessary to evolve won’t be made clear to you from the jump, you can slowly but surely be revealed by utilising the communication opportunities from battles and training.
Not All Evolutions are The Same
The reason there even needs to be a Digivolution guide in the first place is, not all evolutions are created equally. Some evolutions are flat-out unwanted because you’ve got your Digimon’s stats all wrong, this leads to them evolving into lesser Digimon. Even when it is wanted, the branching paths mean that occasionally you’ll evolve onto the wrong branch and be set on a path you didn’t want.
By checking the stats page after communicating you can keep track of whether or not you’ve got our Digimon’s stats done right, you can also see what branch you may have moved onto and where you went wrong so you can course correct in the Digimon’s next life cycle.
The thing to remember is that you will make mistakes, Digivolving is a tough process and following the exact evolution path that you want won’t always be possible, just try to experiment with stats and how you treat your Digimon and see what comes of it.
