Minmon is a Lesser Digimon based on the typical designs of most Fresh and In-Training being mostly small ball shaped Digimon compared to other kinds of Digimon from later generations. Despite what it's ears may suggest, it is not a plant based Digimon at all, but instead a strange kind of amphibian similar to a tadpole. Not much else is currently know due to it being a recent discovery. As it digivolves further, it slowly becomes less amphibian-like and more like a reptile.
