Digimon - out of it

Digimon What Ifs: Rebirth in Adventure

A common complaint about Digimon Adventure/02 is that there's little at stake to actually be "lost" when it comes to the deaths of the Digimon in the Digital World (death being a different matter in the real world), what with the Digimon being both reborn and having all of their memories and personality intact.

There's a simple solution to afford a greater weight to the loss while still keeping the rebirth cycle: have the Digimon be completely new when they're reborn. No memories, no traces of who they originally were. How then, would this affect the children who lose their partners in the series?
