1. Registering Bandai Namco ID
For those who do not have a Bandai Namco ID, you can use the “New User Registration” button to register an account. The instructions are in english hence I will not post step by step instruction here. In the Region/Country selection, I choose Japan. Note that the Region/Country selection cannot be changed after registration. I read somewhere D-1 Grand Prix is only for Residents from Japan, to avoid any issue down the line, I selected Japan as my Region/Country.
After completing registration from e-mail sent by Bandai Namco, login with your email address and password.
2. Registering Digimon
You need to register Digimon from you Digimon 20th Anniversary Version V-Pet before you can start any battle.
Hover your mouse to the “Digimon Album”, on the drop down menu, you’ll see (1) List of Digimon, (2)Digimon Registration. Use (2), to register your Digimon.
On the Digimon Registration page, Insert name you have chosen when you first start your Digimon Ver. 20th Anniversary V-Pet Don’t worry if you have forgotten your input, it can be found on your V-pet devicego to “Album” (The open book icon on your V-Pet) Go to “Album” Your name can be found on the 4th Selection (なまえ）
Password can also be found in “Album” from your V-pet Use first selection in “Album” (デジモン） Select digimon using “A” button then “B” twice to display 16 digit password
You will see the following screen if you have completed your registration. If you get an different screen, if could be that you have input the wrong name and password. Double check your name and password from your V-pet.
Japanese Katagana character can be confusing for none Japanese speaker
Japanese character to look out for: ソ & ン:These are especially confusing, to the left you have Katagana for “so” and to the right “n” (pronounced as erm replacing m with ng) ヤ & ャ: Pay attention to the size of characters, on the left you have “ya” and on the right you have (what I would like to call) small “ya” which act as pronunciation modified for other characters. シ & ジ: Here you have “shi” & “ji”, the difference being the ” on top right of character ヘベペ: Here it’s “he”, “be” and “pe” with the last character having a degree sign on the top right
Pro-tip: If you click on the 2nd button, “Continue Registration”, you will be brought to the previous page with your name already pre-filled for you thus saving your time and effort searching for the right character again and again.
Registered Digimon comes in 3 varying strength namely 1 Star to 3 Star. This actually corresponds to the number of heart you have on the strength state (きんりょうく）
Pro-tip: You should train your Digimon to full strength before registering it in the D-1 Grand Prix.
You can register the same Digimon multiple time, however only one version of the same Digimon can be registered for the D-1 Grand Prix.
Below you see a screenshot showing the message you’ll see when you try to register the same Digimon twice.
3. CPU Battles
If you have been following the guide, you now have Digimon registered for D-1 Grand Prix. On CPU Battles page, you may select 2 registered Digimon for CPU Battles. Each day you will be given 5 chances to battle against CPU.
Note that losing a match counts towards the 5 matches you have each day so make it count!
After you have confirm your Digimon you would like to use for CPU Battles, on the next page you can select the CPU opponents to battle. ?? indicate opponents not yet unlock. You unlock more opponents/matches as you win matches in CPU Battles.
On this page, confirm CPU Digimon selection
On the next screen, click on the “Battle” word to start the battle
After the match, you can either view Battle records or Return to CPU Battle page
4. D-1 Grand Prix
D-1 Grand Prix is now open for registration. Clicking on the first icon, D-1 Grand Prix will lead you to the following screen.
Before you do anything, I recommend you read “Event Outline” as translated below
From my understanding, the winner’s prize is an original illustration and High Achiever’s Prize (or Top Ranking Prize) is a copy of original illustration. Both are physical copies which will be mailed to you after the tournament ends.
In the final tournament, out of 8 players competing in the quarterfinals, 4 winners will then compete until one victor emerges. The 3 players will get “High Achiever Prize” and the victor will of get the “Winner’s Prize” No prizes for preliminary matches.
This is quite straightforward, it will be the same as what you do for CPU battles, except in this case, I am not sure if you are allowed to change your Digimon once you register them for the Grand Prix, so choose wisely!
The note below “Register Adress info” are translated as follows: *Address Registration can be done at anytime *After recipients of “Winner’s Prize” and “High Achiever Prize” has been decided, recipients have 10 days to register for Address Information Failure to register before the deadline will result in loss of rights to the prices, so please be careful! *Delivery of Prizes will be done in phases at the end of tournament, after addresses has been confirmed.
The above translates as follows:
Rule *Each tournament consists of a maximum of 32 player (Website uses Block to quantify the tournament, i.e. 1 block of tournament has a maximum of 32 player tournament format) *Victor of preliminary round 1 will be selected to proceed to preliminary round 2 *The last remaining block will become the Final Tournament (where High Achiever and Winner will be selected) High Achiever and Winner of this Final Tournament will receive the “High Achiever Prize” and “Winner’s Prize”
*Depending on the number of particiipants, number of preliminary rounds, number of tournaments, participants in each tournaments may change
