MONOCHROMON AND TRICERAMON X
Hey, it's Monochromon! Cool! And it's still got that same charming, tormented look on its face that endeared me to it and many other dinosaurian digimon back in the day! It's now got a whole lot more black in the design, slicker, shinier armor, and an ungainly massive blade that definitely screams "X-digimon."
Monochromon's original evolution, Triceramon, gets a decidedly more drastic X-form, and I guess I don't really like it as much, but there's certainly a lot that's cool about it. A coating of needles on its armor plates, longer, more drill-like horns and a more realistic ceratopsian head make this one of those X-forms that truly feels like an alternate design from a rebooted universe. I do genuinely like that, but admittedly only in the context that these still exist in the same "canon" as their original designs.
