This Digimon’s Ultimate digivolution – Metal Greymon(Black) --  remains a Virus type, though his increasingly cybernetic body begins to foreshadow a major change in the appearance of future digivolutions.  With both the Giga Destroyer and Megaton Punch attacks at his disposal, he presents a terrifying challenge for other tamers to overcome.  Finally, the Mega form of the Black line, War Greymon(Black),  is a fully cybernetic creature, seeking out dark justice by eliminating cowardice and foul play.  Armed with its furious Black Tornado and unleashing its devastating Dark Gaia Force like a fireball, there are dew Digimon who can stand up to its unholy wrath!

Tamers can begin training up their Agumon(Black) starting on March 12 th.  Numerous events, including a 30% sale on all Digi-Eggs, will be revealed next week on the official Digimon Masters Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/digimonmasters; check out all the latest news, GM interviews, and sneak peeks at upcoming content at  http://www.joymax.com/dmo/
