This Digimon presentation is on Pokémon Day. Could that be a hint towards some sort of collaboration? If so, could it be a crossover movie, a special Pokémon dim card(like kamen rider and medabots got) or a video game involving both franchises?

That’s a good find. But honestly, now we can only do speculations. We really have no clue if this has anything to do with the Pokemon Day.
