THE ARRIVAL OF SKULLGREYMON (Episode 16) Izzy explains that to digivolve, the Digimon need two things: their human partner must be in danger, and they must have a lot of energy. Since he's the only kid with a crest, Tai stuffs Agumon with food so he'll have the energy to digivolve to his ultimate form if it's needed.

He captures the boys and turns their Digimon to stone, then corners the girls.

THE PIXIMON COMETH (Episode 18) The kids and their Digimon are still walking through the desert in search of crests when they're attacked by Kuwagamon.

THE PRISONER OF THE PYRAMID (Episode 19) Answering an e-mail plea for help, the kids learn the secret of the DigiWorld-it's actually a computer program, and everything in it (including the kids) are just data given form. This knowledge makes Tai feel invulnerable-his real body is safe in the real world. The kids find the source of the e-mail, Datamon, a robot who's been held prisoner by Etemon for years. The kids free Datamon, but he turns on them and kidnaps Sora and Biyomon before fleeing.

But as he does so, he and Tai are dragged into the black pit-a dimensional rift.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME (Episode 21) Tai and Koromon are pulled through the rift and find themselves back on Earth.

Agumon has to digivolve into Greymon and then MetalGreymon before finally giving the monster a fiery farewell.
OUT ON THE TOWN (Episode 33) Matt is taking little brother T.K. home on the train when T.K. and Patamon get into a fight.

When Myotismon shows up, the two "henchmen" don't have the hearts to attack the kids, so Myotismon blasts them to smithereens. It turns out they've just been zapped back to the Digital World, but the kids think they're gone for good. T.K. gets so upset that Patamon digivolves into Angemon! Soon Myotismon is running away, and the kids return to their search for the eighth chosen child.
THE EIGHTH CHILD REVEALED (Episode 34) Gatomon has been staking out Kari from a rooftop, but still can't be sure if she's the chosen child or not. Gatomon can't remember anything that happened before she met Myotismon.

Wizardmon brings the digivice to Gatomon and helps her remember that all her life, she's been waiting for Kari. She approaches Kari and Agumon attacks, thinking she's hurting Kari. Gatomon protects Kari, proving that she's her Digimon and that Kari is the eighth child.

Joe and T.K. desperately try to find a way into Odaibo. Meanwhile, Sora blasts a self-help tape at Phantomon's spooks, neutralizing them.

Myotismon tricks Gatomon into revealing that Kari is the eighth child. Myotismon is about to destroy them when the kids and Digimon arrive. Despite the Digimon fully digivolving, they still lack the power to defeat Myotismon. Myotismon unleashes a deathblow to Kari and Gatomon, but Wizardmon jumps in front and dies from the blast. Tai gets the Digivice back to Kari, which helps Gatomon Digivolve to Angewomon. All the Digimon divert their power to Angewomon, who strikes down Myotismon with her celestial arrow. It seems that Myotismon is defeated, but the kids find it strange that the fog has still not cleared.
PROPHECY (Episode 38) Gennai uncovers a cryptic prophecy that could lead to the salvation of the Real and Digiworlds, if Izzy and the others can decipher it. Elements of the prophecy begin to come true: bats appear in the sky, the captured residents of Odaiba call out Myotismon's name in a trance, Gatomon digivolves into Angewomon, and Myotismon rises again, revealing himself in his "true" form, a towering, energy-devouring monster. In an attempt to bring about the last part of the prophecy, Angemon and Angewomon shoot arrows of light at Tai and Matt, causing Agumon and Gabumon to "warp-digivolve" into their ultimate selves: War Greymon and MetalGarurumon.
THE BATTLE FOR EARTH (Episode 39) Agumon and Gabumon warp-digivolve into WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon. Incredibly, their combined power is still not enough to defeat VenomMyotismon. Not until all the Digimon combine their attacks as one do their crests begin to glow and VenomMyotismon disintegrates. The kids look up to see the sky beginning to break apart and a huge landmass looming towards them. Terrible things begin to happen as Izzy deduces that the continent is in fact the Digital World!

They're only saved when Togemon and Ikkakumon warp-digivolve into Lillymon and Zudomon.

UNDER PRESSURE (Episode 42) After Whamon and the Digidestined escaped, MetalSeadramon and his henchmen, the Divermon, set out to find them.

Using a makeshift SONAR device, Izzy finds a tunnel that leads to safety. However, Metal Seadramon intercepts them before they have a chance to escape.

PIEDMON'S LAST JEST ( Episode 52 ) The kids and their Digimon try to destroy Piedmon, but he begins turning them all into key chains, except Kari and T.K. T.K. calls on Angemon, who digivolves into MagnaAngemon and saves the two kids. MagnaAngemon turns the key chain kids back to normal. Piedmon attacks again with his army of Vilemon, but Mimi arrives with her army of Digimon, who are able to defeat the evil forces. Gennai sends an e-mail explaining that the real enemy is the force that created the Dark Masters. Right then, the ground starts to quake and the Spiral Mountain begins to glow.
NOW APOCALYMON ( Episode 53 ) Spiral Mountain begins to crumble and the kids are suspended in darkness. Gennai explains that the evil that created the Dark Masters came from the Wall of Fire. He tells an ancient story about a strange being who walked across the Wall of Fire and threatened the collapse of the Digital World. There were original DigiDestined children who defeated the evil the first time. The kids were summoned because a new evil stepped out from behind the fire. There's a prophecy that this evil will plunge the world into darkness, which is where the kids are currently floating. The transmission cuts out before Gennai can reveal the identity of the evil force. The villain soon appears in the form of Apocalymon, who has the attacks of all the evil Digimon the kids defeated in the past. He crushes their crests and disables the Digimon's ability to digivolve. He sends the kids and their Digimon to the world of data. The kids' faith in themselves restores the power of their crests. They return to their original forms and are ready to battle Apocalymon.
FATE OF TWO WORLDS ( Episode 54 ) Just as Apocalymon launches his Total Annihilation attack, the children's power within causes their digivices to contain the blast. Apocalymon is defeated. Gennai arrives and explains that the DigiWorld will start over, beginning with File Island. The kids arrive on File Island and decide to stay until summer vacation is over because time is slower in the Digital World. Gennai explains that with the defeat of Apolcalymon, the two worlds now exist at the same rate of time. The portal to transport them back to the real world will soon close. Each DigiDestined and his Digimon say their goodbyes. T.K. and Kari somehow know they will meet again soon. Tai says he will never forget the Digimon and knows that someday they will be reunited.
