He gets in an elevator after seeing another boy, named Koji Minamoto. He tries talking to the boy. Takuya fails in getting an answer. He finds three other children on the train he chooses after almost speeding away with out him. Luckily he caught on to the back, and sees Kouji, on a train beside his. Koji rides away on his train. The three other kids he meets are J.P. Shibiyama, Zoe Orimoto, and Tommy Himi. J.P. and Zoe received a message on their cell phone, as Takuya did. But, Tommy was bullied by two boys on to the train. The 4 children begin to talk, but then, all of their cell phones then transform into strange hand-held devices; D-Tector Digivices. A bit later, they realize the train they are on is not just an ordinary train; it is a Digimon! They find themselves in the digital world, confused. The four children get off of the train, being rudely greeted by a herd of Pagumon. Trailmon tells the Digi-destineds they need to find a Spirit to get home. Tommy becomes scared and runs across a metallic bar that bridges a canyon, but he slips. He is grasping on for dear life. All of a sudden, 2 friendly Digimon, Bokomon and Neemon, come running from a greenish glow. Cerberumon appears using his Emerald Flame attack! The three-headed black canine then attacks the kids. Takuya, along with Bokomon and Neemon rescue Tommy with Cerberumon attempting to attack them. Amazingly, Takuya finds the human flame spirit, and Spirit evolves with his D-Tector to Agunimon. The battle rages on. Cerberumon uses his Portal of Darkness attack and traps Agunimon in an extremely dark dimension. Agunimon uses his Spiral Tornado attack to finish off Cerberumon.

Episode 12 "Fear and Loathing in Los Arboles"
The episode begins with Takuya, as BurningGreymon, on a rampage, attacking Beetlemon and KendoGarurumon. He is unable to control his Beast Spirit, just like Koji had a rough time controlling the Beast Spirit of Light. Beetlemon and KendoGarurumon try talking Takuya out of attacking them, but as Koji should know very well, it's not very useful. While Takuya fights to control his Beast Spirit, and as we see the Beast of Fire giving a loud yell, our other heroes ponder of a way to stop the rampaging Digimon. As a worried Zoe looks on from the sidelines, the fighting continues, with KendoGarurumon firing his "Lupine Laser" attack, which BurningGreymon dodges and counterattacks. KendoGarurumon is about to get it good when Beetlemon steps in, attacking the unsuspecting BurningGreymon, buying the two time to run. BurningGreymon then fires his "Pyro Barrage" attack, which knocks down a few trees, and sets the forest on fire. KendoGarumon comes up with a not-so-bright idea of chopping down the trees with his "Howling Star" attack. As Bokomon, Neemon, and Zoe run off to safety, away from the fire, Tommy visions himself Spirit Evolving to Kumamon, and using "Crystal Freeze" to kill the fire, and states. "If I could only Spirit Evolve to Kumamon...but I can't". Zoe wakes Tommy from his daydream, and drags him along. We now see BurningGreymon attack KendoGarurumon and Beetlemon, and for a moment, come to his senses, but only for a short time, before he lunges at his friends, then gives another loud cry. Zoe and Bokomon converse, and Bokomon tells Zoe that Takuya must learn to control the Beast Spirit on his on, and that sooner or later he will. Beetlemon finally gets a good hit on BurningGreymon, and it is then Tommy realizes that his friend needs him. He then reminises back to a time in the real world, when he spotted some bullies picking on a little kid, while he sat on the swing and watched, and did nothing, until the bullies grew tired of their victim and turned to Tommy, who ran. Tommy then awakes from his second daydream, to find Beetlemon beeing thrown to the ground by none other than the same boy who brought Tommy to his sences when a spell was cast on him to make him turn on his friends. That's when he takes a stand against BurningGreymon, giving a rather touching speach, which causes the Beast of Fire to release yet another loud roar. Beetlemon and KendoGarurumon step in to help bring Takuya to control his Beast Spirit. As the image of Tommy in Takuya's view is morphed into a quite ugly creature, BurningGreymon picks Tommy up with one hand, and then is reminded of their battle with the Evil Kumamon and that it was Agunimon, Takuya, himself, that helped Tommy gain control of himself. Tommy continues his speach, as he sheds a tear that falls intro the red eyes of BurningGreymon, bringing Takuya to control of his Beast Spirit. After realizing what he had done, BurningGreymon, now controlled by Takuya, bashes his head on a rock, then gives one last roar, before de-volving to a sobbing Takuya. He then thinks about what could have happened, had he not come to his sences when he did. Takuya thanks Tommy, and is reminded that he has 2 spirits to regain from Grumblemon. The gang desides just to continue on, and that they will eventually run into the evil Legendary Warrior of Earth, and have one more chance to get the Human Spirit of Ice, and Human Spirit of Wind, back from him. As they continue on, the gang runs into a tree with rather odd roots, forming the shape of a maze, in which they each attempt to walk the correct roots, and end up at the "O" at the end of the maze. Takuya and Tommy win, and the ground below the losers turn to what seems to be quicksand. With most of our heroes trapped in quicksand, Grumblemon appears, throws a few words, and notices that Takuya looks slightly nervous when mentioning having his Beast Spirit, which gives Grumblemon the idea that he can't control it. He then pulls out his weapon and gives one swing, which leads Takuya to helping Tommy up a tree, thinking it would be a safe place for him to stay while the two battled. Things took a turn for the worse when Grumblemon Slide Evolved to Gigasmon. Takuya then desides to Spirit Evolve, but not to his newly aquired Beast Spirit, for fear that he won't be able to control it, and history will repeat itself. So, he Spirit Evolves to Agunimon, and instead of using a fire attack, he uses physical attacks to ensure that that forest won't catch on fire again. He lunges his body at Gigasmon, but doesn't phase him. Gigasmon then uses "Quagmire Twister", knocking Agunimon high into the air, and of course, what goes up...must come down. Tommy is then apprehended by the evil Earth Warrior, and is pursued by Agunimon. Before Agunimon can attack, he is hit by Gigasmon, which caused him to fall out of the tree, which then caused him to de-volve. With a little encouragement from his friends, and Tommy's speach and courage in mind, he himself works up the courage to Spirit Evolve to the Beast Warrior of Fire, BurningGreymon. Then, he uses a an uprooted tree to free Tommy from Gigasmon's grasp, and then makes a diving catch to safe his friend from a painful landing. BurningGreymon and Gigasmon continue battling, as BurningGreymon is about to use a fire attack, he remembers not to set the forest on fire, and instead uses his large tail to knock Gigasmon back. He then Slide Evolves to Agunimon, leading Gigasmon out of the forest, where Gigasmon uses "Tectonic Slam", putting a large crater in the ground. It's then that Agunimon Slide Evolves back to BurningGreymon, uses "Pyro Barrage" to weaken Gigasmon, then "Wildfire Tsunami" to finish him off. He then gains control of the Beast Spirit of Earth, and regains the Human Spirit of Ice, and returns it to it's rightful owner, but is not in time to get back the Human Spirit of Wind, or the Human Spirit of Earth. Grumblemon then appears from the momentarely un-movable Gigasmon, and flees back to meat his other Evil co-workers, Ranamon, Mercurymon, Arbormon, and the anti-sociable Duskmon. Takuya then states abut the long road ahead, and the episode ends.
Episode 13 "Better an Egg Than an Eggshell"
The Kids finally arrive at the Forest Terminal and stop for food at Deramon's restaurant. The food is disgusting so they leave and follow a path, guided by their Digivices, but they don't know that Grumblemon, Mercuremon, Ranamon, and Arbormon are on their trail. The kids arrive at Seraphimon's castle where they are greeted by Sorcermon. He leads them to the sleeping Seraphimon, and using the light of their Digivices, they awaken him. He tells them the story of how the Digiworld came to be how it is now and tells them to seek out Ophanimon. The 4 evil warriors then burst in and the kids Spirit Evolve. Mercuremon has a powerful reflection attack and uses it to injure Sorcermon and steal Seraphimon's fractal code, turning him into a Digiegg.

Bokomon grabs the DigiEgg from Zoe, deciding it's best for him to keep it. Bokomon stores it in his belt. The tunnel ends with a waterfall as a feeling of weightlessness falls over the children. The Trailmon jumps a large canyon where there's no track, but luckily lands safely on the other side. At the end of the track, Trailmon lets the kids off to walk the rest of the way. They begin to sprint when they notice a light ahead. Closer and closer they get, until they reach it! A DEAD-END! They enter a large underground cavern where they search around for an exit. J.P. tells Zoe he hopes Grumblemon finds them so they can finally beat him and get Zoe's Spirit back. Meanwhile, Grumblemon, accompanied by Arbormon, came to the fork in the tunnel. Arbormon chooses the right tunnel, and they head on. We discover they're being spied on by Ranamon and Mercuremon through his mirror. They discuss Mercuremon's plan for Seraphimon's data. Give it to Lord Cherubimon or keep it himself? Ranamon begins to talk about Grumblemon's weakness without his Beast Spirit, but Mercuremon points out Ranamon has yet to find her Beast Spirit. The kids, unable to find an exit, decide it's best to go back, when all of a sudden, a column of water shoots forth from a large pool in the middle of the cavern, hitting Tommy and J.P., hurting J.P. bad. After checking the two's status, they hear a large roar! It's Whamon; a large ocean Digimon! He's out of place in the small pool, Bokomon inclines. Whamon's out of control. He's thrashing all over the place. Spirit Evolution time! Meanwhile, Arbormon and Grumblemon know they're getting closer when they notice the Trailmon coming backwards back towards Seraphimon's palace. Agunimon and Lobomon calm the large whale. He tells them he wants to go back to the ocean. One day, he was minding his own business in the ocean, eating some sea weed and a shiny object Whamon didn't even bother to inspect, Grumblemon cuts a very large slab of rock from the ocean's shore, creating a title wave, and helplessly dragging Whamon to the cavern. The kids decide to work with Whamon to get out of the cavern, when, without warning, the water in Whamon's pool is drained, and Grumblemon appears! Taking out his small spell bottle, Grumblemon creates a few dozen Golemon! A larger then usual one is created for Grumblemon's defense. Agunimon and Lobomon take out a few Golemon with no problem. Arbormon grabs Agunimon and Lobomon's throats, stopping them from being able to help. Their Fractal Code rings appear. Some more Golemon gang up on J.P., Tommy, and Zoe. Zoe doesn't have her Spirit, and J.P. and Tommy are too badly hurt. This does not stop J.P.'s attitude as he takes a stand, soon followed by Tommy. They Spirit Evolve and take out some more Golemon. Beetlemon goes for Grumblemon, but is shot by his Golemon! He devolves, in sever pain. Arbormon Slide Evolves into Petaldramon. Grumblemon takes his hammer out, ready to obliterate J.P.! Whamon shoots a jet of water at Grumblemon, sending him flying against the stone wall. The Beast Spirit of Thunder appears! Whamon had eaten it with that sea weed he was talking about. Before Grumblemon snatches it, J.P. pulls out his D-Tector and it chooses him. J.P. evolves into MetalKabutarimon! With strong armor, unstoppable fire power, and a strong voice, MetalKabutarimon falls towards his Spirit Evolution Sequence base. But, wait? He's.. He's out of control! He begins shooting the cavern ceiling, making it collapse, and burying Petaldramon. Grumblemon tells him he's his friend, trying not to get hurt, but it back fires. MetalKabutarimon realizes who his friends are and gains control. With one blast from his powerful cannon, MetalKabutarimon kills Grumblemon, taking his Spirit, and getting Zoe's back.

Back at the Bazaar, Takuya and Koji are, of course, having no luck. They are shocked to find J.P. in an eating contest instead of searching. Anyone who can eat 30 bowls will win a good prize. Just then, Neemon approaches Takuya telling him he spotted Tommy running off.
In the frigid area of the Island, Tommy confronts the Toucanmon. He takes the camera in order to get the detectors back. Unfortunately, the ice breaks from under the Toucanmon, and they fall into the icy water unable to swim. Tommy argues with his feelings but eventually, out of the goodness of his heart, saves them. The ungrateful birds grab the camera again and take off. On his way back to the Bazaar, the dejected Tommy runs into Takuya and Koji. He tearfully tells them what happened.
Back at Datamon's shop Arbormon has arrived with the camera demanding the detectors, but Datamon sees an interesting event take place when he peers into the camera. The camera had been on and recorded Tommy's heroism assisting the Toucanmon. When Datamon refuses to hand over the detectors, Arbormon evolves to Petaldramon and destroys his shop. Tommy, Takuya, and Koji come running to help. Tommy admits he couldn't find anything, but Datamon hands over his detector for his honesty. Tommy's detector contained his beast spirit! Tommy evolved into Korikakkumon.
Korikakkumon is a little difficult to control at first. Datamon gives Takuya and Koji their detectors so they may help. Soon Petaldramon is sent flying with a "Avalanche Axes!" attack.
Once again all the children are reunited when Ophanimon informs them to head to Venus Rose. It's a good thing Zoe won the eating contest, for the prize was 4 train tickets. Off they go!
Episode 19 "You Want Fries With That?"
Petaldramon got hungry looking at the three moons so he attacks the Burgermon village. He kidnapps one of the burgermon the chosen children came along and offered to help the burgermon make a better burger so they could rescue the burgermon that was kidnapped. Takuya and Koji argued about who's burger was better. The Chamelemon kidnapped J.P., Zoe, and Tommy because they liked Tommy's burger. The baby Burgermon tried to help them but the Chamelemon captured them to. They made the kids and Burgermon make more burgers. The kids were almost done making the burgers when the Chamelemon returned. Zoe, Tommy, and J.P. spirit evolved and started to fight. The Burgermon told them when the Chamelemon appeared and disappeared and the kids defeated them. Kumamon scanned their fractal code and the de-digivolved to Armadillomon just before Petaldramon appeared. Kumamon and the others slide evolved to their beast forms and they attacked him. Burgermon finished the burgers and gave them to Petaldramon. Petaldramon ate them and fell asleep. Tommy, Zoe, J.P., and the Burgermon escaped and went back to the village.
Episode 20 "From Dawn to Duskmon"
The sun rises over the evil Hybrid's hide out, as Arbormon begins his work out, discussing allegiances with Mercuremon. Arbormon says Cherubimon wants him to battle, so he's preparing. Appearing on the outside of the hide out, Mercuremon gloats about his Fractal Code he stole from Seraphimon, and say's it's only a matter of time before the Digital World bows to him. Below, a silhouette of Duskmon is seen. Later on, the evil Hybrids go below their hide out to a temple, cave like area, where they await their Lord's arrival. Apon his arrival, Cherubimon inquires on the absences of Duskmon and Grumblemon. They give no excuse for Duskmon, and tell Cherubimon Grumblemon has fallen in battle. Cherubimon asks if it was by the kids, and Mercuremon figures out Cherubimon knows everything. They feed the collected Fractal Code to Cherubimon, but Mercuremon keeps Seraphimon's. Cherubimon smirks and gives a slight laugh that Mercuremon has chosen to keep the data, and says it's a gift from Cherubimon, but he can demand it back at anytime. Cherubimon seems very confident in himself, passing up a Lord Angel's Fractal Code. Cherubimon lets them know the children's strength is growing and with a, "Don't fail me," Cherubimon vanishes. Meanwhile, it's morning and the kids are enjoying their relaxing Trailmon ride looking on the Rose Morning Star. Up ahead is a landmass of darkness and the Trailmon refuses to go anywhere near it. He dumps the kids off near the Dark Gate. They must make a decision, go to the Continent of Darkness or not. Bokomon is afraid to death of that area as his book holds nothing but a black page about it. There is no information about it except many Digimon have ventured into the continent, and not returned. The kids believe no one can beat them especially if they work together, and head towards the Dark Gate. Neemon follows them, and shortly after, Bokomon decides to follow too. They begin their journey through an gloomy forest, unknowing of what'll happen next. A tree blows in the wind and freaks out Zoe, Tommy, and Bokomon. Tommy runs to Takuya for shelter. Zoe hugs a very embarrassed Koji, while Bokomon jumps on J.P.'s leg. Ahead, they see something glowing... Meanwhile, we see Mercuremon punching the wall of a cave, wondering how Cherubimon knew about the code. Duskmon appears in the shadows. Duskmon question's the three's loyalty, and Mercuremon counters with making fun of Duskmon never being on the battle field. Mercuremon thinks Duskmon is a weakling, but BOY IS HE WRONG. Duskmon walks away. He goes outside and decides it's time for him to take care of the kids. On closer inspection, the kids find out it's a type of Glowing Moss. They use it to light their way. They find a cave and decide to inspect it, but Bokomon freaks out once again. Shadows fly around the kids, mocking them! They decide to use tongue twisters to confuse them. The shadows repeat every word, not messing up once. Koji throws some of his moss at the shadows revealing their identity. Pipismon. They're good Digimon so they decide to leave them alone. Bokomon thinks it's interesting such gentle creatures can be found in such a scary place. The kids cheer Bokomon up even more by telling him he must be glad he came now, and since there's no info on the Dark Continent in his book, he should write it himself. With that, they decide to head off again, but trees in the forest begin falling. Arbormon. He uses Power Pummel to take the Pipismon's Fractal Code the Slide Evolves to Petaldramon and beings eating trees to make himself bigger. The kids Beast Spirit Evolve and begin to fight him, but he keeps healing from all the greenery he ate. Duskmon watches the battle from a near-by tree. With Thorn Jab, he captures all the Beasts except for BurningGreymon. Petaldramon uses Leaf Cyclone and BurningGreymon tries to counter it, but fails. They get blown away. Crashing to the ground, they vow to never give up. KendoGarurumon begins to attack first with Lupine Laser, soon followed by MetalKabutarimon's Electron Cannon. KoriKakumon lifts him off the ground to knock him over and Zephyrmon and BurningGreymon merge attacks to hit Petaldramon hard. Petaldramon becomes surrounded by a Fractal Code ring and KendoGarurumon Slide Evolves to Lobomon to take it. Arbormon lays there banged up pretty bad. Duskmon comes out of the shadows and Arbormon looks happy that his comrade has come to help him. Duskmon strikes Arbormon with his blade and takes his Fractal Code and Spirit. That's the end of Arbormon, but now will they have to battle Duskmon?!
Episode 21 "Darkest Before Duskmon"
Duskmon faces the DigiDestineds, all in Beast mode, wondering who this guy is. Duskmon reveals himself as the Legendary Warrior of Darkness. Duskmon raises his blade, signaling his attack. Duskmon sends a crescent of red energy towards them; they dodge the intense blow as it shatters the ground. Duskmon laughs as they become bewildered about Duskmon's mighty power. MetalKabutarimon uses Bolo Thunder, which creates a thick cloud of dust, and debris around Duskmon as BruningGreymon enters it. BurningGreymon tries to snatch Duskmon, but Duskmon disappears and reappears behind him, quickly tossing him over. Duskmon proclaims the group very weak and gives them the chance to surrender; obviously they decline. KendoGarurumon tells MetalKabutarimon and KoriKakumon to switch to their Human Spirits and they do so along with KendoGarurumon. They charge Duskmon, and Lobomon unleashes Lobo Kendo. He and Dukmon lock swords. The other Hybrids, minus Takuya comes in to attack, but their attacks just get Duskmon in the air and he unleashes Death Gaze, sending deadly beams of crimson red light for all the large eyeballs located on his body. The ground shatters, but they manage to dodge the attack. BurningGreymon struggles to get up, getting Duskmon's attention. He is able to get to his feet and he hit Duskmon with a pretty powerful Wildfire Tsunami. The tornado of fire engulfs Duskmon. Lobomon sprints up to BurningGreymon, telling him they must get far away from Duskmon. Against his will, BurningGreymon leaves with the rest. Once gone, Duskmon rips through the flames with his skull head. The kids venture down the trail, as Takuya speculates on whether he killed Duskmon or not. The group thinks he's still alive. Takuya blames Koji for running away and thinks it was a bad idea. Takuya, being full of himself, puts Koji down for being cautious. They decide to find a safe place to think up of a plan. Bokomon's hunger breaks up the heated dispute so they find some food and water and a place to keep safe. J.P. starts a fire and Zoe joins him. Zoe is worried about Koji and Takuya but J.P. explains to her that these disputes are bound to happen. If Takuya was less hot heated, and Koji did fewer calculations, there would be fewer disputes, but it would throw a lot of things off balance. It's a combination of everyone's differences that makes up the balance. Zoe imagines 2 Takuya's in the group. She becomes frightened at the idea and thanks J.P. for helping her realize that and complements him for being more then she thought. Everyone collects the food and water. Meanwhile, Duskmon searches for the kids with his wondering eyes. Takuya announces his big plan: attack all at once. Nice plan, seeing as they already tried it. But Tommy crafted some nicely made figures off all the Digimon out of leaves and twigs so they could visualize where they would be at what time. Agunimon was to hold Duskmon still while the B Spirit Digimon attacked. Koji interrupts, saying it wouldn't work. Koji thinks they should run away; Duskmon is WAY too strong. They decide to talk in private. They descend into a temple-like structure.
Koji: "Why do you think you're here Takuya? Answer me. I want to know why you're here."
Takuya: "Well, you know, we’re here to save the world."
Koji: "You say that like you don't know what it means. What's at stake. This isn't just some video game you can walk away from if things don't work out."
Takuya: "I'm not stupid you know. I know that."
Koji: "Sometimes I really don't think you do. There's no second chances for us, get it? If we mess up here, it's over."
Takuya: "Yeah.. I, I know."
Koji: "Then how can you stake our lives on some plan that you only assume is going to work. We don't know anything about this guy."
Takuya: "So, what? We'll all be safe if we run away?!"
Koji: "ARG! I didn't say that!"
Takuya: "Then what are you saying?!"
Koji: *Grabs Takuya by the collar* "Listen Takuya, you weren't there when I crossed swords with him, OK? I doubt that he was using even half his strength against me. That whole fight all he was doing was playing with us."
Takuya: "Yeah, OK, maybe, but we're the good-guys! There must be a way to win!"
Koji: "He's too strong!"
Takuya: "I know he's strong, but everytime we run into someone more powerful then us we work together and everything has turned out fine! I really believe that if we just attack as one, we can't loose!"
Koji: "UGH. Takuya open your eyes."
Takuya: "Open your own eyes. We're more powerful together then you think."
Koji: "You just don't get it do you? Tell me something, it's obvious you don't care about yourself, but can you promise me the others won't get hurt? Because if you can't, then you better just go home now, because I won't risk their lives."
They building begins to shake; DUSKMON. Zoe, Tommy, and J.P. Beast Spirit Evolve and await Koji and Takuya. Koji and Takuya come running down the path towards them, Spirit Evolving. They decide to stick to the plan since that's all they have. Agunimon leaps up and throws a few Pyro Tornadoes at Duskmon, kicking and punching him in the face. He is unharmed. Agunimon runs behind and restrains Duskmon. The rests prepare for their attack. When they all do attack, a rainbow colored cloud appears around Duskmon, but he just absorbs it, absorbing the attacks. Duskmon declares Agunimon to be the first to die. Duskmon raises his blade to strike Takuya! KOJI?! KendoGarurumon took the attack for Takuya, devolving him to Koji. Koji falls on the ground and Takuya picks him up and screams out his name. Duskmon steps back, hearing the name and a thick cloud of darkness for his body sweeps the land, engulfing everything. Takuya wakes up at the Dark Terminal where a dark Trailmon offers Takuya a ride home; he takes it.
Episode 22 "Home Again, Takuya Returns"
The Dark Trailmon travels into a portal that warps the air as it passes through. Takuya begins changing forms. He takes a lonely step off of the Dark Trailmon, realizing he's back in the real world. They had arrived at the same place Takuya and the others had gotten on Worm the Trailmon to enter the Digital World. Takuya was back.. But, he wasn't Takuya. He's FLAMON. The Dark Trailmon closes it doors and leaves, revealing Duskmon! Flamon runs to the elevator and gets in. When the doors open, humans are gawking at him, as Takuya notices he's not Takuya any longer. He hops onto a train and then into a tree. He makes his way to his house where he peeps into the window to see.. Takuya. It's the day he left. Flamon decides to try and stop himself from leaving to go to The Digital World. "Don't go!" Flamon screams. Takuya hears it and pauses, but continues on. Takuya retrieves a soccer ball, putting himself in the way to a truck. Flamon stands before Takuya. "Don't go," with that, Flamon knocks Takuya out of the way. Flamon begins to remember how he put his friends in danger, and Duskmon appears again. Once again, Flamon runs. Takuya catches the train, and Flamon tags behind. Takuya peeks in and sees Koji. But it isn't Koji. There's 2 Kojis?! Takuya makes it into the elevator with Koji. The other Koji misses it and runs down the stairs. Flamon pries open the doors of the evaluator and climbs down the ropes. Kouchi, the Koji look a like, trips in the steps and falls to the lower level. He mumbles, "Ko.. ji.." as a crowd forms around him. The elevator stops and they get off. Flamon enters the elevator and tries to stop Takuya but remembers what Koji was asking him before they battled Duskmon, about why he was brought to TDW. The train doors close and Takuya makes the train. It was his destiny. Duskmon appears a final time. This time Flamon has the courage to attack him, and so he does. It turns to a cloud and blows away with the punch. The Duskmon was a fake; a test. Dark Trailmon arrives and lets Flamon on. Flamon now knows he cannot change the past. They travel back to TDW. Flamon remembers his family, but then remembers his friends who need him. He now knows it's not a game. Flamon becomes Agunimon. He steps out of the Trailmon, now with a new sense of his being. He must now save his friends.
Episode 23 "Sock it Takuya"
Meanwhile, Koji is staggering around the Digital World unable to understand why Duskmon hadn't finished him off. He comes to a clearing where he sees Zoe, J.P. and Tommy are held captive by Mercuremon and Ranamon. In another area, three Datamon are trying to pry open the children's digivices to get the spirits. Ranamon wants to try some torturous tactics to find the where-a-bouts of the other two children. She uses the tickle method and sends Zoe and Tommy into fits of laughter. When that doesn't work, she puts a dark cloud around J.P. Koji can't watch any longer, and he evolves to Lobomon to defend his friends.
Not too far away, Agunimon has saved Bokomon and Neemon from the circling boomerang of "Sepikmon". This digimon wants friends, but he has a funny way of showing it. When Agunimon tells him they'll be his friends, Sepikmon sends his boomerang to help locate the other children.
When Agunimon approaches the site where the others are held captive, he finds Lobomon is being pulverized. He knows that to jump in immediately without thinking could be fatal. Using his head and the forces of nature, Agunimon is ready to come to Koji's aid. He uses his "pyro" attacks while Lobomon frees the others and retrieves the digivices. Now all of the children can evolve.
It's good against evil. Ranamon, as Calamaramon, realizes that they have become stronger, and her and Mercuremon run away. In the aftermath, Takuya apologizes to the others for his past behavior and vows that he's changed for the better. Way to go....Takuya!
Episode 24 "Alone but Never Alone"
The episode begins with Ranamon and Mercuremon discussing their retreat, while in another area Duskmon tries to recall how he somehow knows Koji.
When we join the chosen children, J.P. has appointed himself the leader as they venture across the ledge of some mountains. All of a sudden, tornadic winds suck the children into cave-like surroundings, but there is no exit. A eerie looking hand pushes J.P. through an eye shaped entry port.
Once inside, J.P. finds he is all alone. The huge Digimon, Volcamon, appears and begins attacking. He plays on J.P.'s self-doubts by saying that no one would help him, and he has no friends. The chosen youth evolves to Beetlemon and eventually defeats Volcamon with his "Thunder attack,." but as he's absorbing the evil digimon's fractal code, he is told again that he has no friends. That triggers flashbacks of his experiences at school. How he tried to win friends with his magic and chocolate, but when he needed help in a rain storm, no one was there for him. J.P. yells he learned from the others that you cannot buy friendship.
Just then, J.P. comes face-to-face with a dark Beetlemon, a shadow of himself. The floor raises, and they face each other in a wrestling arena. Many duplicates of Takuya and the others appear jeering at the poor boy. A small doubt in himself was enough to allow shadow Beetlemon an attack that resulted in J.P.'s de-evolution. Thank goodness, he was able to pick himself up and gain enough confidence so he could beast spirit evolve to MetalKabuterimon.
Meanwhile Takuya is sensing that J.P. is in trouble. They are able to break through the entry port and witness J.P.'s fight. J.P. sees his friends and aims his cannon at his shadow self and fires. The others run to their fallen friend to see if he is alright. J.P. apologizes for doubting their friendship. The reunion is short-lived when the eerie arms appear again pushing each of them into different portals.
Episode 25 "The Dark Heart of Friendship"
The episode begins with a flashback to Tommy's home life. It reveals how the young boy was pampered and given everything he wanted, much to the frustration of his older brother. Tommy's brother feels his sibling is selfish, spoiled, and can't do anything on his own.
In the next scene, Tommy finds himself alone in a desolate, volcanic type area. Seems Takuya and the others have been scattered in all different areas. Each were in a different sphere of the legendary warrior, Sakkakumon. Suddenly, Tommy is attacked by a mysterious Digimon. After he escapes, the boy meets another hooded Digimon, Asuramon, who seems very friendly. They accompany each other to look for their friends.
In a different area of Sakkakumon, Koji evolves to Lobomon when he comes face-to-face with the Digimon Karatenmon. The Digimon wants Koji's spirit, and they begin to battle.
The scene switches to Tommy who has become tired and thirsty. Asuramon, declaring his friendship, volunteers to get him water. This triggered another flashback of a family outing where the boy has gotten his own way again angering his brother.
Meanwhile, Karatenmon is trying to belittle Koji by telling him he is afraid to have friends. The Digimon is able to mimic Lobomon's every move. Lobomon evolves to KendoGarurumon. With his incredible speed, Koji eventually defeats Karatenmon and purifies his fractal code. When Koji returns to himself, another eye portal appears, and he jumps through it.
Tommy and Asuramon are now climbing a mountain, and it is becoming increasingly hot. Tommy finally realizes that Asuramon is only being nice to him, because he wants something. When Asuramon removes his cloak, Tommy sees that this is the Digimon that was after his spirit before. The youngster evolves to Kumamon to defend his spirit. Asuramon's taunting about his lack of friends helps Tommy to understand what his brother was trying to tell him. Friendship should not be one sided. Kumamon beast spirit evolves to Korikakkumon, defeats Asuramon, and purifies his fractal code. And with that, Tommy is able to exit Sakkakumon's sphere and meet up with Bokomon and Neemon.
...But what about the others???
Episode 26 "Zoe's Unbelievable Adventure"

J.P., Zoe, and Tommy looked for information about the Rose-Morning Star, but all they found was a Trailmon Graveyard. An old Trailmon there said he knew about the Rose-Morning Star, but it seems he only said that to get a bath and some other favors. After that he turned into a young Trailmon. It turns out he did know something about the Rose-Morning Star- THAT’S WHERE OPHANIMON IS!

Cherubimon tricked him into fighting Koji, so he evolved to Velgemon and attacked Koji. Bokomon and Neemon found Patamon and Takuya and Patamon leads them in the direction to where they can find Koji. Tommy and Zoe kept trying to talk to Takuya and Koji, but when it didn’t work they decided to go find Angler. Koji fusion evolved so he could try to talk to Velgemon, but Velgemon evolved to Duskmon and used Deadly Game. Koji de-evolved and Duskmon evolved to Velgemon again and used Dark Obliteration but Takuya and the digimon found them and Takuya pushed Koji out of the way. Patamon attacked Velgemon with Boom Bubbles until he ran out of power. Takuya and Koji argued about weather or not to fight Velgemon. “You’ll fight him and here’s why” Takuya said. “You’ll fight him because he’s you brother, and if his only brother won’t save him, who will?” Takuya fusion evolved to Aldamon and attacked. Velgemon picked him up and Koji finally decided to help and fusion evolved. Aldamon used Solar-Wind Destroyer and BeoWolfmon used Frozen Hunter. Velgemon’s Fractal Code ring appeared.

Everyone wondered about how to help Koji and Koichi. Angler stopped to rest for a while. Koji asked Takuya what brothers do and Takuya and the others talked to him about it. “Why don’t they hate me?” Koichi asked himself. “I tried to kill them. I can’t even stand me right now.” he said. Patamon tried to comfort him. A fake Cherubimon attacked them. Zoe and Tommy beast spirit evolved, J.P. spirit evolved, and Takuya and Koji fusion evolved. Beetlemon and Korikakumon used a combo attack, Aldamon attacked, and BeoWolfmon used Frozen Hunter but nothing happened. Cherubimon used Storm of Judgement and everyone de-evolved.

The kids immediately spirit evolve to fight him, but as Boromon sees that they are legendary warriors, he wishes them no harm. Boromon leads the kids along with Bokomon, Neemon, and Patamon into the Tunnel of Time, where the records of all of the Digital World's history are kept. Boromon tells them of Lucemon's treachery, and how he was sealed away into a realm of nothingness. Bitter, Lucemon wanted the Digital World destroyed, so he tainted Cherubimon to do the work for him. Following Lucemon's defeat, Cherubimon had been entrusted with five legendary spirits, Seraphimon with two, and Ophanimon with three. Boromon foresees that if this destruction is carried out, Lucemon will be revived, and it will mean the apocalypse. He says that the kids did a lot of work already, but they don't stand a chance and must go back to the real world before it is too late. The kids, of course, refuse, and want to defeat Lucemon, the true evil, once and for all. As they set back out with Boromon, they encounter two really powerful warriors, Crusadermon and Dynasmon. They are Royal Knights, who had originally been sent out to restore peace, but had fallen prey to Lucemon and now fought for Lucemon.

The Digidestined come to a village where they meet some other children, something they haven't seen in a long time. As they talk, Tommy is more shy than normal.
