Digimon Links Guide: How to Get and Use Leader Skills

3 months ago 7ring Comments Off on Digimon Links Guide: How to Get and Use Leader Skills

In Digimon Links, there are three types of Digimon skills: Signature, Legacy, and Leader. Of those three, Leader Skills are the most sought after. These skills can buff your Digimon to strength levels incomparable to Digimon without them. Not every Digimon comes equipped with a Leader Skill, though, so understanding its value is important.

As you progress through the game, you’ll come to a point where you have that Mega you’ve been searching for. But does it have the optimal Leader Skill? If not, you’re nowhere near as strong as you could be. In this guide, we’ll introduce you to what Leader Skills are and show you the current Leader Skills that exist in the game.

What are Leader Skills in Digimon Links?

A Leader Skill is a powerful passive skill that your Digimon can acquire but at a very rare chance. These skills are some of the strongest in the game. Every time you capture or Digivolve a Digimon, there’s a chance that the one you get may have a Leader Skill.

Unlike Signature and Legacy skills, Leader Skills cannot be transferred to another Digimon. However, you can use the Digimon as your Base Digimon (when Awakening) and Digivolve into a useful Mega. This is a way to effectively move a useful Leader Skill on a useless Digimon into a more useful Mega while retaining the skill.

While there is no public data available to know the exact chance at which you’ll get a Leader Skill during evolution, there is currently a Leader Skill Capture event going on for just a few more days. If you’re looking to guarantee yourself a Digimon with a Leader Skill, check out our Digimon Links Event Capture Guide.

With Digimon Links only having been out for a few weeks in North America, no one knows yet if all Leader Skills from the Japanese version of the game are being included or if new ones that don’t appear in the Japanese version exist. However, due to the aforementioned capture event’s existence, we can confirm many Leader Skills already.

Leader Skills are extremely valuable in Digimon Links, so remember to explore all options before doing away with your “junk” Digimon. Look into the Digivolution tree because that Digimon may just be able to evolve into a Mega that synergizes well with your Leader Skill.
